Don't know if you are hulucinating but Bob Pond, when he was alive, did a lot of hulicinating. He had a lot of original ideas but he also had some shockwa notions that made a lot of the bio-striper managers roll their eyes. For instance, he had this theory about striper egg floatation/sink that was supposed to explain striper fecundity that the fisheries managers did not believe was true. I never got involved because I could not say who was right. Besides, I was more interested in writing easy stuff like "best plug" or best place to fish.
He invited us to accompany him for some Maryland "Research" but I had too many irons in the fire here in New England to go down south. They have too many snakes down south.
