A few odds and ends…
First off, I want to thank whoever sent me the #JIG mug! I appreciate it. There was no note or return address, so I have no idea who sent it to me.
I have been updating the website when I have time. When the new site was built some of the “species” didn’t transfer over. My web designer also used some stock Finger Lake photos as a template for me. I had completely forgotten about those, so I have been replacing them with photos of the various lakes. I’ve also been digging through my photo archives (and I have a TON of them) and adding some more shots to go along with the “species” pages.
Angling Zone friend Ralph told me about a great product that no boater/motorist should be without. It’s the NOCO Boost Plus Jump Starter. I bought the GB 40. They are available through Tackle Warehouse, Bass Pro Shops and elsewhere. This little gadget fits into a winter coat pocket and can jump start a dead car, truck or boat battery with ease. As a matter of fact, with one charge you can start over a dozen (up to 18) vehicles! Check out the YouTube videos on this thing. No more having to ask for a jump when you have a dead battery or having to call AAA. I can’t count how many times I’ve seen guys stuck at a boat launch with a dead battery and no way to start it. I saw that happen back in November on Otisco Lake.
I recently bought one and actually had to use it a week ago when my truck battery died. It’s the real deal. Three years ago they sold for around $70 to $90 – now they are up to $140 but they are still well worth it.
Gift Certificates are available. It’s a bit late now to send one out before the holiday but I have them for any occasion!
