Ladyfish (Elopidae), also known as skipjacks, jack-rashes, or tenpounders, is a coastal -dwelling fish are found throughout the tropical and subtropical regions.
I’ve had several trail cameras over the years and they all eventually just stop working. I think that they lose their ability, over time, to keep out the elements. This is my newest, the GardePro A3 Trail Camera (2020), 20MP, 1080P H.264 HD Video, Clear 100ft No Glow Infrared Night Vision, 0.1s Trigger Speed, 82ft Motion Detection, Waterproof Cam for Wildlife Deer Game Trail. I bought it off Amazon Prime for $60.
I was doing an outdoor project with a friend and I said “I’ll just use the mattock” and he replied “what is a mattock?”. I picked it up and he said “oh, the pick axe”. I said “no, this is a mattock”. This little conversation got me thinking, why do they call it a mattock? Did the old farmer Mr. Mattock invent the tool to dig up roots in his garden? I decided to do a little research to dig up some answers!
About 1974 I was fishing with my cousin, Glenn, at Providence Lake , near Alpharetta, Georgia. We had rigged our flat bottom, aluminum, boat with a trolling motor and a depth finder. We found the place, near the dam, where a small creek bed connected with the main creek channel, about 12 feet deep.
This is the full length video of a guy that has a lot of extra time and designed a squirrel obstacle course because they were defeating his “squirrel proof” bird feeders. I love all the science and technology involved and the guy is hilarious, even naming all the squirrels.
Cottonseed meal is the byproduct of ginned cotton, seeds crushed and the oil extracted. It can then be used as animal feed or in organic fertilizer. I found out that catfish liked it too.
The balance of the bait was accomplished with lead balls and the lip is referred to as the wedgebill. I’ve caught many bass on this lure. Fishing around the boat docks at Lake Lanier caused damage to many lures due to my miss-casts.
I loved to throw it out, let it rest on top until there was no more ripple, and then start to reel. The majority of my bites would come while it was sitting still or the second I started it moving. One of my favorite crankbaits of all-time.

I was refilling the feeder this morning and two Hummingbirds flew up to express their dissatisfaction with me letting their feeder get empty!
Aconitum (/ˌækəˈnaɪtəm/), also known as aconite, monkshood, wolf’s-bane, leopard’s bane, mousebane, women’s bane, devil’s helmet, queen of poisons, or blue rocket.
Aconitum is a perennial, genus of over 250 species, that grows in the mountainous parts of the northern hemisphere in the mountain meadows. Most species are poisonous, causing diarrhea, convulsions, ventricular arrhythmia and death. The major antidote is Atropine but must be administered quickly as death will occur in 2-6 hours.
In mythology the goddess Hecate was said to have invented aconite, which Athena used to transform Arachne into a spider. Medea attempted to poison Theseus with a cup of wine containing wolf’s-bane.
In the monster movies Van Helsing places a sprig of wolf’s-bane around Mina’s neck in the 1931 Dracula with Bela Lugosi. In the 1941 film Wolfman, with Lon Chaney Jr., this poem is heard:
Even a man who pure at heart,Old Gypsy Poem
and says his prayers by night,
May become a wolf when the Wolf’s-bane blooms,
and the autumn moon is bright.
Yes, we caught 118 fish. A mix of largemouth bass, white bass, hybrid bass and 1 striper. It was 84 degrees, and sunny, and the fishing was slow until the last hour of the day when the schooling went insane.
