WFOLove78,
To Allcoast!

They WSB are around. Hit and miss, Ghosts.
I am happy when they avoid hooks and nets.
They also go shallow and hang out. Last year I saw 7 WSB in 3' of water inside the Port, all over 20lbs. They also swim behind the Bonito in the port. Found 3 - 4'ers tagging behind a school of bones
in the same channel for 4 days.

Bong, a topic about which I know something.

8)

The Bong recreation area in Wisconsin is a multiuse recreational area used for hiking, fishing, hunting, horses, and dog training and tests.

It was named after "Richard Bong" who was America's biggest flying ace during WWI. While not quite the red baron, the guy could fly! It was supposed to be a USAF fighter base, but was abandoned right before it happened. The savvy citizens of Wisconsin took it over, and turned it into a cool recreational area (4500 acres) just 40 miles southwest of Milwaukee.

No dope is allowed in this state area.

With all respect..it was WWII Oldtimer. Richard "Dic" Bong led all american pilots with 40 kills. He was killed while testing a P-80 over North Hollywood shortly after the bombing of Hiroshima. He was a recipient of the medal of honor to boot. Loved WWII planes as a kid. My favorite was Gregory "Pappy" Boyington.

Jackpot and Bubba

JJ--You are completely correct. I left off the I of WWII. (I knew that....but typed it wrong. Then by using the red baron reference I made it seem worse. I was trying to think of an ace that everyone would know.) Both my Dad and Mom were in WWII and I, like you, am surprised at the number of people who aren't aware of it today.
Here's a link about Bong.

Bubba. We were about 100 miles south of where the tornados hit. We slept that night in the basement. We had winds up to 50-60, but only straight line winds...no tornadic winds. The current estimate is that the Parkersburg tornado was about 1/3 of a mile wide and was rated as an high EF4 to low EF5. That's really really serious, with winds in the 250+MPH range. Can you imagine that going thru your house?

Only about 1% of tornados every reach that level.

re: Jackpot and Bubba

That's where the term ' Major Bong ' came from.


Here's a link about Bong.
http://www.acepilots.com/usaaf_bong.html

Bong began shooting down Japanese planes at a rapid rate. Here's a summary of his action:

Date Kills Location/Comment
December 27, 1942 2 over Buna
January 7, 1943 2 Oscars over Lae
January 8 1 over Lae Harbor, made 'ace'
February 3 back with 9th FS, at Schwimmer
March 3 1 Zero during Battle of the Bismarck Sea
March 11 2 Zeroes
March 29 1 Betty? bomber; promoted to 1st Lt.
April 14 1 bomber, defending against Jap attack on Milne Bay. 'Double Ace'. Awarded Air Medal
June 12 1 Zero, over Bena Bena
July 26 4 fighters, on escort o Lae; awarded DSC
Except for this July 26 engagement, Bong never had any hugely successful single mission such as McGuire or Shubin. Bong's kills were evenly spread out throughout his time flying combat. Also, most of Bong's victories were in the earlier stages of the war against very experienced Japanese pilots. Bong also was considered extremely lucky in finding the enemy. Some pilots hardly saw any enemy fighters in all their time flying combat.
July 28 1 Oscar, on B-25 escort over New Britain. Bong's plane damaged.
August 24 promoted to Captain, R&R in Australia
September 6 0 claimed two bombers, but wins were not confirmed; crash-landed at Mailinan airstrip
October 2 1 Dinah, while leading Green Flight over Gasmata
October 29 2 Zeros, over enemy airfield at Rabaul
November 5 2 Zeros, over enemy airfield at Rabaul; total of 21 kills
Dec. 1943 - Jan. 1944 - On leave at home in Wisconsin, met Marge Vattendahl
Feb. 1944 - assigned to V Fighter Command HQ, allowed to 'free-lance'
February 15 1 Tony off Cape Hoskins, New Britain, first vistory in 'Marge'
February 28 0 destroyed a Japanese transport full of officers on the runway at Wewak
March 3 2 Sally bombers, over Tadji, New ******
March 8 Friend & mentor Tom Lynch killed
April 3 1 fighter over Hollandia, 25th win
April 12 3 surpassed Rickenbacker's WWI record of 26

Major Bong had quite an impressive record.

What does it mean


Was it a Wide Fricken Open Fish Bite in 1978


Was it a Wild Summer of Love in 1978


I Dunno
DR
I actually know what "WFO" means and where it originated from:

WFO="WIDE [email protected]#$!$%@ OPEN"

The term was first used by none other but Bob "The Hurricane" Hannah in 1978 during the 250 motocross nationals to describe how he rode the throttle when he stomped the competition.

I would assume 1978 is his DOB and not sure where "love" fits in there as Woodstock was waaaay over by '78. in 1978 I was 10 listening to 8 tracks of Zeppelin...and "whole lotta love", but once again what do I know. For what it's worth...never thought Bonging out was all that bad...worse case scenario is that you polished off a 1/2 gallon of Ice Cream versus smashing up your car drinking and driving.

Even George "W" has partaked in a little tokey tokey. Check it out narrow minds. Tune in, turn on and drop out?

What type of code are you guys using? What is a bong and [email protected](
Where were you in the 70s Tom?? A bong is a type of water pipe used to smoke dope (or a WWII ace pilot:) ) and I assume the reference to stick means a fishing pole and not thai stick.
Exactly what I meant Kerry.8)
