PROSPECTORS LOUNGE

This section is a little different and the place to post prospecting questions, birthdays, and talk not directly related to other sections of the forum, but still related to gold prospecting. No Political or religious posts will be allowed please and will be deleted by staff


Prospectors Lounge Guidelines

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here. This forum is not moderated as heavily as the other sections so please do not enter or open a topic if you think you will be offended. If you are at least respond like an adult or we will remove your post as soon as brought to our attention.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political or Religious posts belong in "Off Topic" but surly you can find other forums that host those discussions if it is your thing, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never permanently banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it clean and play nice.

    • If you're taking a 12 footer out into open water on that lake you obviously know what you're doing. In ''94 (I believe it was), a big squall on the lake with high winds came up pretty quick and nearly swamped the marina, wrecking several of the moored boats and created a lot of damage. I was fishing off of South Cove and went to shore when it started to hit. But as I did,  I could see a few of the smaller boats still out there getting tossed around by the waves and  having problems cranking up, so I launched and managed to get them towed in. The result was, I barely made it back without getting swamped and sunk myself, although my 20' Bayliner was getting slammed against the dock, my engine had died, and my anchor rope got fouled around the propeller.  I had to jump into the water (Errol Flynn style, hunting knife between my teeth), and cut the rope that was wrapped around the Prop and the Shaft to free it, (trying to avoid getting smashed between the boat and the dock), but I finally managed to fire up the engine and get the heck out of there.  I didn't catch any fish that day, but it was reward enough that the people I towed in were grateful that they didn't drown. So was I. For them and for me.
