    How I Went Fishing With Michael Pryor 

    Ok, since I started ranting about fishing, here’s a good story.

    I went fishing once with Michael Pryor, whom you might know as the president of Fog Creek Software. We went on the Dorothy B VIII for a half day of fluke fishing.

    The trip wasn’t going well. The boat was a bit crowded, there was an obnoxious redneck with a loud kid right next to us. And neither of us were catching anything. Well, actually I caught two really big skates. But skates are not fun to catch. It was still nice to be able to get some fresh air, fish and talk, but I was afraid Michael was regretting taking the train all the way from Manhattan to Sheepshead Bay for that.

    Exactly the second the captain announced “lines up, let’s go home” Michael got a bite. And caught the biggest damn fluke on the entire boat, effectively winning the pool for the biggest fish. Fishing on that boat for years, I never caught a fluke that big.

    The secret, is of course luck, but in addition, we were both fishing with a special kind of a bucktail called the Atomic Bullet. A bucktail is a sinker with a hook attached to it. I never liked those, but I’ve been hearing that the biggest flukes were caught on that. And it looks like that’s true. I’ll be using those this season.

    P.S. If you know of any good fishing blogs, please let me know.

    Need To Move 

    My rent is up and I am completely fed up with the building where I live. I definitely need to move.

    The real-estate market is at it’s peak, and buying now is probably stupid. Still, I am looking.

    How about this? Nice, huh? And just 245K.

    Seriously though, does anyone know a good realtor (actually it’s Realtor® , but I hate them so much.. ) in Sheepshead Bay?
