Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Virginia man reels in record-breaking catfish with $20 Walmart fishing rod


A Virginia man made the catch of a lifetime on Saturday when he reeled in a 68-pound flathead catfish, beating a state record set nearly 25 years ago.


Fisherman Jeffrey Dill said it wasn't easy pulling the "monster" fish out of Lake Smith in Virginia Beach with his $20 fishing rod from Walmart but he did it.

You don't need no stinking expensive set up goof for this kid. Now he will get $$ endorsements and the rod will probably go up o a $100 in price.
I have high end Shimanos and caught more fish on my $35 Browning reel and an Ugly Stick than all my other high end gear.

To fish all you need is a line, hook, bait and lots of luck.

People make fun of my fishing rod, it's been niqqer-rigged with epoxy in a couple places, but you know what? it still catches fish.

Game warden told me about a guy who hauled in a great big Northern Pike on a Snoopy rod & reel. I guess his grandson was playing with the fishing pole and cast the line out from the bank and when he reeled it in, the pike jumped out of the water and grabbed the bait. Kid freaked out and dropped the pole. Grandpa caught it before the fish ran off with it and landed the fish.

Ha ha ha! Just about everything I own was purchased at Walmart, Ebay or Goodwill!

It's really coll to see an average dude land a big ass fish with humble equipment. Just goes to show, you don't need to spend a lot of money on fishing gear. Heck... Both my catfish rod/reel combos cost just under $50 apiece. A former coworker of mine; an avid fly fisherman, might spend $500 or more on a single rod without blinking an eye.
