    Current Fishing Prospects

    Would anyone mind sharing what kind of fishing is “on” right now? I was planning to take my wife and I to the coast (around yachats(? sp?) since she likes the area to relax and chill and I have done some surf fishing there too. The trip is mostly for her (she is a middle school counselor and has a crazy, hard job) but I would like to try some fishing. I like to go to the coast to fish when the seas are calmer and this weekend is NOT looking to be calm so I was wondering what other fishing options might be on right now. I guess i could could always go to the fish market and buy some and arrive at the hotel and say, “Damn! Look what I snagged, baby!....man it was a fighter!!!”

    Yes I will have to save up some of my newspaper-delivery-route money and get on to some bigger fish by chartering a boat....I hear that they also drop a few crab pots on the way out and check them when coming back in.

    The wife and I spent the weekend in Yachats, Oregon which is on the coast south of Newport. I brought the fishing poles and got skunked throwing a Gulp ghost shrimp on the bottom. I still do like to climb around those basalt rocks in the surf knowing that I just might haul in a nice rockfish. I ripped my jeans at the inseam and got soaked so it is me, 0, Pacific Ocean 1,
  6. Hello so a few years ago I was doing an indoor, stealth grow using Fox Farms Ocean Forest, using an unknown bag-seed strain (from seed) under 5000k CFLs. After a few months of veg, I isolated the six females and removed all of the males. The health of all of the plants was very good at this time (~ 2 months from seed). Then two plants began to develop black spots on the leaves while still in veg. I did a google search and many posts pointed to root disease issues. I wanted to do things as “organically” as possible, so I began to use Neem oil in my watering regimen. I would add the recommended amount in water to treat “root rot” (a bacterial infection of the roots, I believe?). I used NO other fertilizers nor additives until this problem arose. After this, the new growth fan leaves had NO black spots at all and the plants eventually flowered and harvested (of course the young, diseased fan leaves were culled and these plants were harvested and really made a fine end-product). It is really incredible what home-grown Cannabis can produce! Since then I have intended to use Neem oil in all of the soil at the dosage recommended by Neem oil packaging instructions. Would anyone care care to give their opinion on this idea? In other words, I intend to use some Neem oil in ALL of the soil I use BEFORE I grow anything in it, to avoid the black spot issue. I know I am getting in trouble with the natural soil folks out there, but I don’t have the ability to cultivate my own organic soil, so Fox Farms is what I will have to make-do with until later. Thank you everyone!

    Question concerning a grow from a few years ago....

    Gee thanks Popeye! I will try to get on to the chat room tonight and touch base with everyone...

    Question concerning a grow from a few years ago....

    Thank you for the feedback, Popeye! I really do! As I get older, the more I realize all the stuff I don’t know and anything to make me a better grower is always appreciated. I guess that I thought that by growing indoors I wouldn’t have nearly as many bug/fungus mungus/jungle rot problems, and the appearance of black spots on my plants made me resort to using it as a drench. I am living proof that while knowledge is good, a little knowledge can be dangerous! I thank you again!!
  9. I was watching a YouTube video the other day on how to tell if your plants are getting too much light. It was a video from a channel called “MIGRO”, and the video described how to measure this. Essentially by using a Infrared thermometer (the kind you use by pointing the device at whatever you want to measure the temperature of), you measure the temperature of the topmost leaves or flowers (that are closest to your lights). If that temperature is greater than the ambient temperature (so you DO need a second, “plain”, air thermometer in the near vicinity), then those leaves/flowers are experiencing light stress. If the temperatures are the same, then you’re okay, according to the author “Shane”. I think this sounds legitimate and now I have a good excuse to justify the expense of another “toy” to my wife. I have wanted one for awhile and now, NOW I have a good reason!!!!
  10. Hi so in the evening chat room it was brought up what type of lights I was using and the image with this post shows an incomplete DIY CFL setup (24” x 24”) and I plan to use multiple ones for a typical grow. You are seeing the “guts” of it but in operation, there will be another piece of wood with individual cutouts for each bulb. I went with CFLs instead of T8s because awhile back, when I came up with the idea, I couldn’t find any UVb lights in a T8 form factor- that is the sole reason I went with CFLs instead of T8s. There are 4 fans (1 on each corner) that pull air from inside (to pull air away from the plants and into the bulb area then out) and blow out to keep any heat from the CFLs away from the plants.... I intend to use this one for starting seeds then move on to T8s for the biggest part of veg, then on to flower with maybe some LEDs....dunno yet.

    I will try and be more mindful, thank you Eddiekirk.

    So I stopped by Wilsonville pond today and threw a frog for awhile......no blowups and no takers...I was there for about 45 mins.
  13. Hi all: So the wife and I have moved to a duplex rental property and I have the “grow-itch”, but I want to keep it on the down-low from my landlord. I am thinking of using the attic, since I really have no other alternative. It is a “typical” A-frame roof with, probably, four feet at the center and tapering down to the eaves. I have only used soil in the past, but to achieve any substantial height in the plants, I feel like I will need to “go hydro” so the roots don’t take up so much of the available height...... What do you all recommend for the type of “hydro” grow I should pursue? Sorry for my ignorance of terminology, but I am leaning toward the kind that sprays nutrient solution on to the roots. I want to avoid as much weight as possible, so “deep water culture” (I think?) wouldn’t be the way to go. I am in to electronics stuff (Arduino stuff) so I am not worried about automating most all of the lighting, watering or aerating. I plan for it to be totally enclosed with plywood and ventilated with air from the living space, NOT the attic. Would anyone care to make recommendations on this idea? Max grow height for the plants will only be about 3 feet, but I’m sure I’m not the first to harvest plants that small....

    Recommendations for a starter “hydro” grow...

    .....but yes, the more I think of it, am i really going to go to all of that effort for just a few plants....I really do have the itch to get a grow going...maybe I will stick to eddiekirk’s post above...

    A pic of my DIY CFL light (unfinished)

    I really think that this is eventually going to be a light for young plants only.....I have ideas for some all-aluminum framed lights using 2’ T8s in combination with some 3-watt LEDs with the LEDs being used for flower. These as lights are really nothing to be proud of....

    Recommendations for a starter “hydro” grow...

    My plan is to not use DWC because of the weight issue, but to use the type of hydro that sprays nutrients and water on to the roots, I feel like that would require the least height....

    My wife and I both have our current fishing licenses, (fishing and shellfish). I know that I can find a stretch of coast and throw a line in for surfperch, but I was wondering if there are maybe some fresh water species that might be biting as well, near the coast where we’ll be staying. I have a blast (mostly) climbing around on those basalt formations, finding little crabs and clams/mussels to use as bait, knowing that I just might land a nice rockfish.

    @tumbleweedNo this will be very low-tech surf, rock fishing....maybe a little crabbing with one “pod”

    Employment Drug Tests

    Hi everyone I was wondering if anyone can recommend a good “cleaner” medication/prophylactic for passing an employment urinalysis test? Aside from drinking lots of water, does anyone recommend any particular cleaner? Thank you....

    Are CBD Dog Treats The New Wave Of Cannabis?

    So hey thank you very much for this information!! So sorry it has taken me so long to realize that you responded!! We will give these a try...... Thank you again, purple power!!
  22. Hello everyone: I am planning to do an indoor grow and was wondering if anyone does any growing of plant species other than Cannabis? I ask this for several reasons: 1) I happen to like peppers and other vegetables and it would be nice to have some fresh veggies for the dinner table and 2) I know that some plants have natural insect repellents (peppers, neem, cedar) so it might be of benefit to grow some concurrently with Cannabis to help reduce pest problems without resorting to chemicals to try and stay organic. In another state I did a stealth grow using 5-gallon Homer buckets with Fox Farms Ocean Forest, grown under 5000K CFLs for vegetation, then 3000K CFLs for flowering. I only very rarely used a "fish emulsion" fertilizer with some added neem oil (only once at the beginning of veg). The results I got (using some unknown bag seeds), especially in vegetation were excellent. By this I mean there was very dense vegetative growth and I hardly ever had to cull any fan leaves at all. I am also trying to make the change from CFLs to LEDs and I plan to use some cannibalized 5000K LEDs from Costco in the hope that I can replicate the excellent vegetative results I got from the 5000K CFLs. but I doubt that the spectral content of the LEDs will be the same. Any constructive criticism is appreciated......

    Harney County, Oregon

    Hello I may be offered a job in Harney County, Oregon....that is way east of here and they do not (at least as far as I can tell) allow for any commercial sale of marijuana they are on the list of counties that opted out of recreational sales, but shouldn’t I still be able to possess (flower) and grow my own in this county?

    Harney County, Oregon

    Thanks y’all, I will look into it closer. Also if I get my OMMP card, I assume the county will have to respect (and allow) me growing my own (indoors)?
