Re: Delta - 4th of July

I don't net my fish anymore. I am just not that nimble anymore.
I just use the net, lying on the carpet in front of the driver's console, as a fish-friendly landing area.
You could probably do the same with your broken net.

You can also just wet a part of the carpet to use for a landing area, or use you fish-friendly net.

Re: trailer ball hitch grease

Regular inspection and maintenance is the key.
I think just about any grease that won't drip off in the heat will work. You just have to keep an eye on it, and reapply when the ball begins to look bare.
In the past I've used vaseline, and also the same marine grease I lube my trailer fittings with.
