  1. What kind of swivel do you put on your underspin?
  2. Phoenix sighting

    Here's my opinion of what's wrong with the used boat market... My current boat is worth $25 - $28,000... and has no warranty on the motor. If I sold it for $25,000 and the new owner bought it and blew it up they are screwed. A new motor is going to run you around $17,000. Now they are into it $42,000. You can get a heck of a nice boat for $42,000 with warranty. I think about how bad it's going to suck all the time when my motor blows. Trading boats before the warranty goes may be the cheapest insurance policy you can have. There's no reason a boat motor should cost as much as a small car. We are being ripped off and the sad part is we are happy about it and smiling all the way to the lake.
  3. Hydrowave 2

    I have one and run it a lot certain times of the year... and everyone knows by my reputation the kind of fish I catch! On a serious note, I don't think it hurts in most situations. I've seen baitfish get active a few times I cut it on after forgetting but that's not always the case.
  4. Battery

    I switch to the AGM battery for cranking. I still run the lead acid batteries for trolling. I had problems getting it started at night after long spells of fishing too. Had to jump it several times even when running a new battery. So far so good. Switched last spring. Like Andy said, make sure your battery has enough CCA.

    That's moving... faster than the lead sled I have.

    What boat/motor do you have?

    If you have to have prop work, check out east tn propellers in Knoxville. I took mine by a while back to have the hub pressed in a little. Super nice guy owns it. He pushed it in around 3/4" and wouldn't take any money. Said I'd need work sometime in the future and just remember him when I did.
  8. Ready to go again

    Dennis and I were sitting at Shady Grove one night bank fishing off the point. My back was bothering me and I sat down in the truck which was maybe 5 foot from the water on the point. Dennis was standing in front of the truck and to the left a few foot. I saw a boat make a couple of quick turns about 200 yards off the bank and head directly towards the point we were sitting on. He was coming at a pretty good clip, faster than he should have entered the cove beside us. As he progressed towards us he turned directly at us and never slowed. Lucky for him I was sitting in the truck and was able to flash my headlights at him right before he would have been on top of us. He jumped out of the gas and turned the boat. The lift of the water picked up the boat and when it settled, his boat was hitting the ground. His entire boat was maybe 3 foot off the bank. He yelled "thanks" and hammered back down. Looked like 3 20ish year old kids in some kind of ski boat.

    61 at night is not being careful! LOL I've had 2 close calls on Douglas recently. One was a 20 something foot pontoon someone was using as a dock. It had no reflectors and was broken loose floating in the middle of the channel. The other was a 14 foot Jon boat running the channel with no lights at all. But hey... you're a grown man, do as you please. I've learned in my 20 years of Fire/EMS that you can only warn people, not do it for them.

  11. Nitro Boat Question

    I've fished from a few bigger Nitro boats. I wasn't too impressed with the ride but they fished great. The ride wasn't awful... just not as smooth as my boat. I wouldn't hesitate buying one but I'd buy a 1 or 2 year old boat with warranty.

    Best nighttime blade ever made... ultra vibe.
