    USA Other HOBBIES?

    Well it's a fact that we can't FISH all of the time so when you are not FISHING what other hobbies do you have? Myself I am a Ham Radio operator(W4KVW) & also sing Country & Gospel Karaoke & sing in Contest every now & then as well as in church sometimes.I sing at most of the local fund raisers & benefit events as well.I have friends who have known me most of my life who don't even know that I sing because I just started singing in June of 2011.My mother had not heard me sing until October 2011 & when I came off the stage she was crying.I ask her what was wrong & she said that she had no idea that I could sing like that & could not believe that beautiful voice was me & wanted too know how I kept it from her for 51 years.I told her as I recalled when I was a kid she told me to shut up or go outside if I wanted to sing so since I did not like getting my butt whipped I went outside or I shut up! Here is a link to my YouTube page so if you are interested you may also listen to some or all of the videos that I have there currently.I have some video from Nashville,Tennessee from a few weeks ago but have not figured out yet how to post them to my YouTube page but I will soon.Tell me what you think & you will not hurt my feelings because after 30 years as a State Law Enforcement Officer I have thick skin & am now RETIRED. {:>) https://www.youtube.com/my_videos?o=U

    Looks as if I'm the ONLY person on this site that has more than one Hobby? I find that strange but I'm glad I have more than one! {:>)

    I ride Harleys, Fish, Shoot sporting clays, pistols, Boat while I fish, cast a line now and again, practice casting in my front yard, entertain my neighbors casting for grass in my front yard and keep an eye on BBC.

    haha Well the grass bites well in our yard as well.That's how I learned to cast a baitcast reel.Lots of patience & practice from the deck of my 14 foot customized Jon Boat back then.I could hit the hole in the top of a 5 gallon bucket about 8 out of 10 times with a 1/2 oz spinner bait at 25 yards after a couple of weeks of steady practice so it paid off.Neighbors were always asking me if I was catching anything & I just laughed & told them they were all catch & release since I do not eat grass carp! LOL {:>)

    Shooting, reloading, then more shooting and last but not least buying guns.

    But where I live we CAN fish all the time . . .

    Other than bass fishing, I fish for snook and Juvi Tarpon.

    Also umpire baseball games - Little League, Pony, Travel Ball, High School, etc.

    How do you prepare them skeet? I've tried them fried,boiled,baked,Bar-BQ & just can't get them tender & they always taste nasty & are very hard to chew as well. LOL
