Going fishing tomorrow on the Surfside pier in Myrtle Beach south carolina tomorrow. I hope to catch some spanish mackeral and will be using all the gotcha plugs and spoons I own to that end. I'm also taking some friends who have never fished saltwater before, and only rarely fish freshwater, so I'm setting them up with some bottom rigs with shrimp. I figure one of us will find out what's biting. Pier/surf fishing thread? Pier/surf fishing thread. Btw, got waaaay too close to a shark on a sandbar about 300 yards from shore while surf fishing last weekend,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

I'll be doing a lot of backpacking this summer and I like to bring chicken jerky. But store-bought is expensive so I want to make my own. Does anybody have experience with this? Does home-made jerky last long? Can anybody recommend a dehydrator that's not too expensive? Any other tips on homemade jerky would be appreciated too, thanks.
>>768856 Don't use ground beef. That's absolutely fucking retarded. Eye of bottom or basically any cheap cut of meat does well. I have a Hamilton Beach dehydrator and it's great. I've used it almost every day for the past year and I wish I had bought one sooner. You can dehydrate veggies, fruit, herbs, soup, pemmican, and fruit leather aka fruit roll ups. Home made beef jerky lasts for a very long time if stored properly. I'd wager years.
I don't really enjoy target shooting in the bush/outside of a range, but my Mossberg 500 has felled many a grouse and hare. It's a workhorse that is with me for about 1/2 the year. I'd give it the nod, but my Winchester 70 in .30-06 is what I really look forward to packing. Goddamn I can't wait for September.
>>776266 Idk what it will be like for a fixie or road bike, but with BMX, you could spend $700 on a really nice complete bike. To build almost the same bike using individual parts at full retail, you will probably end up spending like $1100-$1400.
A BMX mailorder company called DansComp used to sell a kit with everything besides the frame so you could buy your own frame and get the kit for another $300-$500, but a lot of the major parts were mediocre in the kit and you can't really get specific sizes you want.

It's a nice knoife, don't get me wrong. And I got it on clearance for <$30 so whatever. But I'm not really a collector and the Dragon is too big for an EDC on my belt. And then I thought about using it as a tackle bag knife, but I think I prefer the Kershaw I have since the blade is better for chopping.
on a long multipitch i like being able to drink mostly hands free while i'm belaying, but i HATE not being able to see how much water i have left/how fast i'm drinking. and they're a nightmare to refill while backpacking, because you have to unpack half your shit to get it back in the pack.
and unless for some reason i need to carry a lot of water, i pretty much prefer just a couple bottles for day hikes (again, can't easily see how much you've drunk)
>>775044 i made that mistake exactly once. never again.
i have a 3L one, and, like i said, i'll use it sometimes for climbing (long alpine routes or if it's really hot), i use it if i know i'm going to drink between 2 and 3L. if 2L or less i just carry 2 bottles, if more than 3L i carry 2 bottles and refill them. or if i know i need 5L+ i'll bring it because it distributes the load well (hang against the back instead of shuffling to the bottom of the pack). otherwise it stays at home.

I have been testing my backpack(pic related) through various durability tests and scoring it. I have rated out of 10 for each criteria. Here is my criteria:
1)Fill with water and see how long it takes to dry out in the sun >6/10 2)Jerk the zippers back and fourth as hard as possible >3/10 3)Fill with sand and rocks to see what it can hold >8/10 4)Drop heaviest knife from shoulder height to make sure canvas is tough >7/10 5)Hold...

I'm planning a first time bicycle tour in January, and I need some ideas for good spots to go /out/ during my travels and also some general advice or tips. I came here instead of /n/ because I am more in need of planning a route around cool places to visit and camp/hike. I will be riding from the Oregon coast to Maine. Any advice on routes to take and sights to see between these 2 states? I've never really left the west coast before besides going to Nevada and Idaho, so I want to get out and explore some of the rest of this country. I'm planning on mostly stealth... Comment too long.

On a more serious note, if you are going through the mountains in Colorado in the summer and want something more intense, hit some of the MTB trails. I took my BMX down multiple double black diamond trails at Vail and Breck and it was some of the most fun I have ever had.
They will rent you a MTB with suspension for a reasonable price too if you don't want to abuse your road bike.
One more thing I would suggest is if you go through Chicago, get on the lakefront trail as far north... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
/o/ut, do you think it's better to have water proof/resistant boots that will probably take longer to dry if water goes over the top or lighter better ventilated boots that will get wet at every crossing, but dry faster? Trying to decide what model Merrill Moabs I want to hike the Ouachita Trail.
>>773718 Get a wilderness permit and stay the hell away from the main trails (around Nevada falls, any short trail in the valley, etc). Traffic is horrendous in late spring/early summer, just be advised. If you stay away from the short trails, you know, the ones all the yuppies from the bus tours and families with fed up children go on, it is gorgeous.
I'm planning to do a day hike soon, but for food i'm pretty conflicted, because i need lighter yet more calorie dense food. So far, I decided to carry 1kg of Rice crispies over 1kg of MRES because MRE's are heavier, Thoughts?
>>771638 If you don't already rock climb, you should consider trying it. Red Rocks is one of the world's top climbing destinations, and it's right in your backyard. You're also right by the Colorado river, and all the aquatic adventures that it holds.
>>771423 >That guy not daring to touch the girls Top kek
Also OP, why would you join something like that if you don't even have a clue of what shoes or clothing you'll need? Damn son, millenials really are clueless about the world.
Having said that, you'll first need to look at the weather forecast so you'll adjust your clothing system and your nutrition/trainning before the race. You'll also need to check the terrain where the race is going to take place... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>767196 I'll be hunting for whitetail deer, feral pig, squirrel, and dove again, like I always do. I might try to go duck hunting for the first time this year, I know a few people who go regularly that would let me tag along. A lot of them don't really like the taste of wild duck so they give the meat away afterwards which means that I'd be able to take as much home as I wanted. I love making duck & sausage gumbo or duck stew.
I'm considering just biting the bullet this year and buying a lifetime... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>767205 Nice. I haven't been duck hunting in a while. My honey hole dried up due to a few years of drought, then the feds have had the area blocked off last time I was down there for some habitat restoration or some other bullshit. (The habitat was fine, but don't tell the feds that.) When it was good, the first shot would cause the ducks take off, and it would sound like a fucking 737 flying low overhead.
But I like wild duck too, so you can't have mine if I do go.
>>776089 Well I'm not well versed in tents myself, since I usually just use my basha since it's lightweight, and does the job. But then again I live in the UK so I haven't had any problems with mozzies and their ilk. Not sure what it's like out in Lake Superior.
You could get a Eureka Solitaire, I've heard good things about it as a lightweight one man tent.
Good luck on the camping though, once I save more money, I plan on quitting my crappy job and flying over to the US to hike the entire... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>775894 Yup. This guy was on something very similar. And with the single hook on the top, they don't get snagged very easily so you can run them in lakes with lots of weeds. The rubber will get torn up eventually though, they aren't meant to last forever.
I want to go on an /out/ adventure for the three-day weekend. I'm thinking of hitting up Arches National Park, and possibly some other places in the area like Glen Canyon and Black Canyon of the Gunnison.
But I know some places get stupid crowded for Memorial Day weekend. Are any of those places I should avoid for the weekend? I'm thinking of doing backpacking/camping Saturday and Sunday night too, will there be spots available?
>>774278 burly knives have too much weight and momentum for cutting greenery. a thin machete wouldve been ideal. as for defending against gators. you dont. just accept death. they are literally just dinosaurs that cant be killed, or else they wouldve been by now
