  2. BJ's Custom Lures

    Hey Guys, Just wanted to let every one know the new lure company that me and my buddy started. We have several products already out and are working on more ideas to come in the new year. Currently we have a damiki head that is a proven fish catcher, a tightlining head that is painted to match the smelt minnow, couple different spinnerbaits that will catch fish, and a swimbait head that creates great action on the swimbait. Check us out on Facebook www.facebook.com/bjscustomlures our website bjscustomlures.com or Instagram www.instagram.com/bjscustomlures In the coming weeks we will be doing give aways so be sure to follow us on our social media platforms. We can also customize the lures to the anglers needs so let us know if you are looking for something particular. Thanks, BJ's Custom Lures

      Prettier than laying in the mud on my back wearing worn out Crocks. Just saying.

      At least I didn't end up on solid ground when I was supposed to be in the water!

    For the V4 valve to work, your livewell drain has to connect to the valve. This valve will give you the ability to pump water in, recirculate water, or open the valve to drain. This is what is on my Nitro. If you just want to add the aerator then all you need is the spray head that has the venturi, like this one https://flow-rite.com/products/marine/aerators/mh-psn-100. The recirculate option is really handy tho, especially in the summer when water temperatures rise. If you decide to go that route, I'd go ahead and add the pump out option as well. https://flow-rite.com/products/marine/aerators/ma-024-r or https://flow-rite.com/products/marine/aerators/mp-1000 which comes with the thru hull fitting, add in some hose and you won't have to squat behind the boat to fill a weigh bag. If you go with the V4 valve, you'll also need the actuator https://flow-rite.com/products/marine/actuators-cables/mc-1-04-100 and the cable https://flow-rite.com/products/marine/actuators-cables/ma-cbl-06, if your boat doesn't have them already, which it doesn't sound like it does. I just went through all of this on my Nitro a few months back, so if you have any questions feel free to ask. I can also sketch up something on how mine is set up if you need it.

    Your exactly right Bud! Little mini me. I always had faith in him. He listens extremely well. Kids will amaze you if you just give them a chance. Everything I told him are things I personally experienced. I always say this is why we’re throwing these lures and colors right now. Just back up by example. I want him to know why we are fishing a ledge. We’re here for a reason because of X. We’re not just throwing at the bank or randomly fishing this off shore structure for the heck of it. There are reasons. It makes it better for him to understand. He will have children one day. He’s a little sponge right now. I want him to pass his experiences down.

    Don't get him watching those videos.... you can't stop. Some of them are very impressive others are meh.. and then some I think they would have been better off just buying a used bass boat. Those videos are like internet crack cocaine.

    Welcome to TNBF. Sounds like you're hooked and you hooked another one.
  14. Welcome ClayTims

    Hello everyone. Excitied to join in. Avid Bass Fisherman since a teenager. 39 yrs old now and currently passing down knowledge I was taught by many Gentlemen who took the time with me as a kid, now down to my son who is currently 13. He got hooked at age 3. He just naturally has the passion also and I advanced him quick. Throwing a baitcaster, working jerkbaits, Carolina rigs at 7 years old. Y’all get it....We’re each others best friend and fishing buddies. Throughout the years, I’ve fish many great lakes. Pickwick was where I spent the majority of my time. From Kentucky Lake to Florence, AL and all in between I basically wore a new Nitro out I bought myself at 20. Many memories fishing for Smallmouth and Largemouth.....My best fishing experience/memory to date was fishing the Float and Fly on Dale Hollow with the late Mr. Bob Coan. Jan 11, 2002. Temps was in the low 30’s and spitting snow that day. I will never forget that day as long as I live. If anyone has fished using the Float and Fly, you know its very different from what this West TN boy had ever done. It was the weirdest setup and Man, it felt like that leader was 2 miles long. It took a me a minute to get used to it no doubt! After a brutal cold morning we had only caught 1 Smallmouth by Noon. We had moved around several spots by that time also. Freezing cold, snow, numb face, hands....just numb everything. We stopped to eat a sandwich just sitting still in the lake. It was deafening quiet. My face was too numb for me to even talk much less try to eat. Then Bob said something to me I will never forget as long as I live. He looked straight at me and said......”Son, there here”. “ We just haven’t found them yet”......That short. Deep tone. No expression. No elaboration. That simple. I thought about that sitting there with him and and how true that really is. Those words changed my way of thinking that day as a young fisherman to think things through more with better strategies and situations in times of tough fishing. I often wondered what his strategy was that day. What he was thinking and what play was he going to call next. Because I knew he had to call a audible at some point..............Well, we found them a hr later and I really, really mean we found them. It was probably the most crazy/unreal thing I had ever experienced. It was cast after cast. Those Smallmouth was attacking us left and right. I can’t even try to think to remember how many we caught. We could do no wrong. Over and over and over... I will never forget that experience fishing the Float and Fly or what he said to me that day. I use those same words this very day to my son and even myself! Thanks guys!.......Clay Tims

    The water comes in from the top of the tank. I was looking on there website and it looks like I'd need the v4 for it to work
  17. Livewell

    Depending on the setup, you should be able to put them in there. Where does the water pump in? The bottom, or top, of the tank? Flow rite makes Venturi aerators for your incoming fill. They work well.
  18. Livewell

    It doesn't have any. All it will do is constantly pump in fresh water. It doesn't have anyway to circulate the water.

    I really like that tank Andy posted. It’s still portable, but has all of the stuff rigged and ready.
  20. New to me!!!

    That's awesome. Congrats. 68 in a ranger? Thats like sitting on the couch watching tv. Lol. Try 75 in a 17' bullet. I heard it was a bowling ball....

    Ive been thinking of doing the jon boat thing for awhile. Been looking for a 1672 to convert. I was thinking a 90 qt cooler would work well with a good air pump.

    I heard tale of people putting screen wire like used for porches over the output into the live well... supposedly this adds oxygen to the water. Works like the little screens on your faucet at home. I can see how it would work but to what extent I don't know. I've often thought about trying it but haven't. If you have a fresh water input you could always add a pump inside to recycle the water. I did that in a Lowe boat I had. Used clear flex tubing and ran it to a pvc pipe the length of the Live well and drilled holes every 1/2 inch to inch. It worked well. I put a valve in place and had a hose that laid inside the live well for pump out.
  25. New to me!!!

    I heard it was a straw...
  26. Jon boats

    Those guys that have the tiny boat nation videos like posted above do all kinds of mods... some are good and some make no sense at all. If I got ideas from most of them I'd tweak them after giving them some logical thought. But like others have said, a cooler will work. You can also buy live well inserts if you ever want to make something more permanent. On the cooler, the bigger the better.
  27. Livewell

    Some aerators, like my old Astro, were built into the pump in nozzle. It’d automatically pull air in with the water.
