  1. Ask Ott Defoe about the river fishing... He had a custom tunnel hull boat built just for it.

    Phenix rods?

    Id hate to know what one of those cost. I know a swimbait or glidebait that size is usually well over $100, or mo100, Crazy. I have 1 megabass I-slide 135 that i got off ebay for about $20, lightly used, its a $50 bait & the most expensive lure i own.
  3. Where did you find that deal? I found a smokin deal on ebay last yr for a pfluger patriarch from an Australian tackle store. $90 & free shipping on a $240 reel. I tried to buy 2, but they only had 1. This yr i found a shimano crucial 7'11" heavy flipping rod for $80, free shipping.
  4. Those look great. Glad to hear somebody got their stuff done right & for a reasonable price & timeframe. Ive had 2 friends that got screwed bad. 1 waited a yr to get his boat back, after taking it for carpet & seat redo. Another has been to 2 different places with his deck boat, spent a yr in one shop for seats. Got it back & the next yr took it to a different guy for carpet, outdrive seal & some other seats recovered. He went & picked it up after over 2 yrs, in a millon pieces, outdrive laying on the deck. Seats stripped bare, carpet laying rolled up in the floor. Guy that started it got put in jail. Boat is still sitting in pieces.
  5. Nah. I've got a 7-11" shimano crucial flippin stick that makes 4oz swimbaits feel like a shad rap. Lol.
  6. Looks don't matter that much, imo. Ive thrown a ton of swimbaits, mostly 4 & 5" on a swimbait head of some type. The best one ive found is a 5" reaction innovations skinny dipper. Ive caught so many smallmouth on that thing, you could fill neyland stadium.
  7. Ive.heard of people putting weird stuff on a c-rig before, like crank baits & jerkbaits. Ive came up with a new twist. Im gonna try an a-rig with 5 lizards, or worms ect. I plan on varying the length of the leaders & putting different colors on each one to see what the fish like best. I could even go with 5 different baits, 1 worm, 1 lizard, 1 fluke, 1 beaver & 1 swimbait. That would have to increase my odds of getting bit. 😂
  8. I would like to try them, but i have thrown a ton of swimbaits in east tn, & had very little success. This super clear water really lets them get a good look at a bait. I have caught a ton of smallmouth on smaller swimbaits tho.

      You geaux, dood.  Catch'em up good, partner.

      I got out this AM for a couple hours.  Shoulder is coming around - casting, hooksets, etc all working pain-free.  Looking forward to fall.

  11. The casting defect was on the top end of the engine, caused a pretty bad oil leak. I was just commenting on their poor quality control. Mercury actually wanted the dealers to silicon the hole up & send them back out as repaired.
  12. That sucks. Hope you get it fixed quick. I saw a youtube video about a quality control issue with mercs on tracker boats not too long ago. They had a casting defect that caused a major oil leak. They wouldn't allow the dealers to pull parts from other engines to fix it either, had a 4 month wait on new parts, because they were behind on production. Factory customer service sucks from them. Several people commented that they had the same problem.
  13. Sounds like a good day. Im gonna have to try some shellcrackers, i here they are really good to eat. And they get big on norris too, like 3lbs+.
  14. Or all that bullsheet.......😂
