I know everyone hasn't received their magazine yet but I have a couple of questions that I hope won't land me on the black list.

Dave, you mentioned Jeff's article but this is open to everyone, especially Jeff. Near the end of page 8, talking about LMB recruitment, what is meant by "The pond is not sheltered by trees and has a substantial "fetch" regardless of wind direction."

Also, in the write-in section. What is it in fire ants that kill BG??
Are they poisonous? My only exposure to fire ants was the site of a friend's daughter making the mistake of riding her big wheel over a nest. For a little girl, she had some vocals once they laid into her !

Mine came last week, and it was a very good issue. I would like to give a special thanks to catmandoo for including his deer pastrami recipe. Seeing the pictures of it on the forum made my mouth water.

Russ you ask - "The pond is not sheltered by trees and has a substantial "fetch" regardless of wind direction."
Not sure what part you don't understand but I assume the word fetch is the 'problem'. In detail, this means there are few if any trees around the pond to inhibit wind action. Substantial "fetch" means that the pond is large enough or oriented in a direction that the wind can blow across a large area of the pond to create "substantial" or good wave action. Substantial is relative and a personal opinion. One man's substantial is maybe another's 'moderate'. IMO a wind should generate whitecaps before one considers it substantial wave action. Breaking white cap waves tend to mix water deeper than rolling or gravity waves. The water temperature and degree of stratification and wave height have a lot to do with how deep the waves can mix the water.
Fetch by definition is the distance over which the wind can blow uninterrupted by land.

Bummer! Bummer! Bummer!

I'm traveling again this week. I won't get home until Friday. I just talked to Lynda. She said the magazine arrived today, and that there is a pastrami article on the recipe page!

I need a new career!

I guess you and I were posting at the same time. Thanks for the kudos. I also received a number of PMs and e-mails.

It almost makes me feel like a celebrity. But, I guess here on the forum, and at my work place, being the celebrity of "road kill recipes" and a culinary experimenter of other dead critters, isn't quite the same as being Humphrey Bogart, Babe Ruth, or even Emeril Lagasse. My friends will still make fun of my recipes as they quickly slurp it all up, so that nobody else will be subjected to these awful tastes and delights.

Just remember -- 1-1/2 tablespoons of TenderQuick per pound of meat.

To elaborate a little more on what Bill said. The pond is located in the very flat, and open Arkansas delta. The nearest group of trees large enough to block wind is 3 miles to the north and almost non-existant to the south. In the dead heat of summer it is rare to see the pond without a ripple for an entire day. White capping wave action poses a severe errosion problem around our levee. So much so that we placed 75 tons of rip rap around the edge this summer.

Bill you are correct in your assumption. I did not understand the "fetch" reference. Thank you both for the reply.

bbjr, speaking as one of the pastrami taste testers...you can NOT imagine how good the Pastrami was!!! VERY moist, tender and flavorful...better than the best deli meat IMHO! You should be very jealous!

Catmandoo...You are correct sir as to why we eat your roadkill....Lesser friends would let you go right ahead and embarass yourself. I for one will step up and volunteer to offer you my opinion of your culinary....uhhh.... creations?!!! Only because I care about ya!

It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

The article by Slipke on Cason's (Cheyenne) pond is awesome.

ewests article on smallies has me recharged to get those rock piles into my pond (which I'd been procrastinating on for about 4 years).

catmandoo's recipe article is top notch.

When catmandoo, Todd, and Rex were at my pond, cat gave me a hunk of deer pastrami to take home. I said "I should see if Todd or Rex wants to take some home also." Cat said that Todd would be getting more as they see each other pretty often. So I said "I'll see if Rex wants some." Somehow, I forgot to ask Rex if he wanted some.

I'd been eating on the hunk of deer pastrami for a few days, and I told my wife that it was homemade pastrami. I kept noticing the hunk getting smaller when I wasn't around. Finally, I asked my wife if she had been eating it as I finished off the last chunk. She said "yes."

I told her I was surprised she was eating/enjoying it 'as it was venison. She got pretty quiet. She didnt' know it was deer meat, and I guess I never mentioned it.

It is some of the best stuff I have ever, ever had!

It's funny what people will or won't eat, depending on if they know what is or not.

Yeah, she really liked it. She's not anti-deer meat; she just is not a big fan of it.
