There really isn't an "ATA" place in Fbx any more. Closest thing to it is the Cutting Edge, although Mark and Angel no longer handle the retail stuff to any great degree. Cutting Edge is on Fox Avenue, near RR industrial area, off Phillips Field Road, near Florcraft. A bit hard to get to, what with all the streets torn up along Illinois Street. Best to come in from Peger Rd.

Yep, I have a pretty tame pallet...lol!

No surgery on the wrist unless it doesn't heal up right! Kind of a good news bad news thing as it can take up to 12 weeks for it to close on it's own (scaphoid bone). Got a half arm cast with finger usage. I sure miss my thumb!

Well if you had reels with the handle on the CORRECT side, you would be able to reel still....

Or, just put some cord off the down rigger and attach it above the ball, drop that to the bottom... .. white trash electric reel right there...

Are you going to need a packer now for that deer hunt????

I'm learning how to do things with my left hand I never dreamed of... but reeling an open face reel lefty isn't one of them. Weird because I always reel spinning reels lefty...?? I like your downrigger idea...lol!
I got the deer hunt covered but I may need help with a goat. jk, once this cast comes off, billy is gonna die! Saw probably 30 goats today while scouting. Most were pretty far back in the hills but one billy was in a doable location. One month from now I hope to be putting a stalk on one. Xrays next week... hoping for good news! My coccyx is still sore but getting better slowly (in case you were wondering grin ) .

Yeah, maybe, but musk ox and some pork fat at 10% sure mixes well
