    Headed to the Valley with Roncador Friday Eve to Sat mid day. Got the pain train rolling pretty decent early on, then slowing to a few bites here and there in the North end. Quite a few tossed back, with no real rhythm to things, sleeping after 3 AM at an abandoned homestead in the south. Visited a few spots in the morning, pretty lackluster until we got a few smaller cats and some bluegill (redear?) at one spot before moving on. Carp were present, but not demolishing everything like a couple weeks ago. Pretty sure I saw some bass on beds, we didn't catch any, tho we did try for a few minutes here and there. Kept a few carp for neighbors, bait and the garden. Finished strong with a couple extra eater cats and a nice carp to take home. Fun stuff...

    Camping out in an abandoned house, fishing all night, and bringing home some big fish.. sounds like a hell of a fun time to me.
    I do have one question, you mentioned some fish for the garden. I have been thinking about burying a few fish in my raised beds. Is that what you do? Does it give good fertilizer, and does it make the garden smell? Im more worried about my dogs and the local coyotes digging them out and killing my plants than anything. I already use fish enamel fertilizer, so i would guess it would be close to the same thing, if not better.

    No fur in my yard. I exclude the fur from my yard so I have free reign. And yes, the odor if you dig up something too soon can be eye watering, lol. It does work great though, I bury several hundred lb a year in my little plot and the squash are just huge! Here's a leaf in my hand from last year...

    Holy crap. Those are HUGE. Yeah, unfortunately i don't have the room currently for a dedicated garden area. So i have to work around dogs and toddlers. Not the best situation, but we make it work. I often find holes dug in my dirt, i never know if its the dogs or kids. So i may wait on the fish idea until i have more room. But it does look like it has an amazing effect on the plants.

    Fish carcasses in the compost pile, and I add chicken manure, to leaves grass cutting , coffee grounds vegetable tops from kitchen,even egg shells. works wonders .
    Just a tip, if you have a small area, lay a old tire flat and fill with compost, add quartered potatoes cover. As they grow ,add another tire, more compost, go up about 6 tires high , at the end of the season push over the stack of tires. And you have months worth of new potatoes.

    Holy crap thats an amazing idea. I tried potatoes in a 5 gal bucket, but they never actually grew the potatoes, guess i didn't cover it enough. My carrots grew like crazy though. I have not started my new plants this year, yet. Late start.. i may try that tire idea though. Just need to find some old tires. Lol
