  1. Just wondering, how many did not get a return on this swap?

  4. No fault on your side I’m sure. I’ve had several items eaten by USPS recently. I had a tracking number for the return envelope but it ended up misplaced as it wasn’t stapled to the original receipt. Be nice to see where it is stuck at.
  5. Another monday, another empty mailbox. Anyone else still waiting? On another note, my taxes are supposed to be deposited on Wednesday so USPS is going to be running a tight race...

  9. Not today here either. At this point it has become a race between what I will see first, delivery from the USPS, or my tax refund from the IRS (going on 75 days...).

  13. Had three days before the season closes for the summer on Tuesday. Needed a 28”, couldn’t quite stretch this 27.5” to make the cut. Did manage to also put 2 nice tarpon in the air, estimated 20-30lbs. The water is warming up nicely. Two more days to try...

I was on a business trip to the pacific northwest earlier this month and hit up Sportsman's Warehouse for some spin-n-glo's to try. Early testing shows a bit less commotion than the propeller version, but I think it may still be a winner.
