  1. Ned Rig

    Well I've not even attempted tight lining yet.
  2. Still $100.00

    Hey, I'm just trying to move it without having to put it on eBay, packaging will be a pain in the posterior!

    So it's essentially a shaky head not was well endowed....
  4. Still $100.00

    Hey ya'll, if this isn't allowed feel free to take it down, no hard feelings. I have a 5 Gallon stove top still I'm trying to sell. I bought it from a guy that makes them and sells them on eBay. You can use it for anything that requires distillation, water, mineral oils, whatever. I don't care what you plan on doing with it lol. I've used it maybe 5 or 6 times works great, great condition. The seals contain no toxins so there is nothing that will leak into your purified water. I bought a water pump and I would rig it up with hose, which are included and the pump and set the pump in some kind of reservoir that contained ice water so as not to have my tap flowing all the time but you could buy a length of hose and a sink adapter and run a hose straight from the sink, probably more efficient that way to be honest. If this get's taken down I'm sorry for wasting your time admins! If not and anyone has any questions feel free to text me. 865-403-2386 Pretty firm on price, they sell new for around $200.00 on eBay
  5. Garmin 73 SV Chirp

    Welp, I pulled the trigger last week and ordered one. SUPER excited and man has technology pricing come down a lot. I got mine for $630.00 I remember when side imaging hit the market, gosh I guess ten years back now, I had just sold some property to buy a house and bought a Humminbird. I gave about $1200.00 with tax and map card for mine at the time that only had a 5 inch diagonal screen, side imaging, traditional sonar and GPS mapping. My Garmin I ordered has a 7" screen, built in maps, CHIRP sonar, Side View, Down View, traditional sonar, map creating software. Man I'm super excited. I had to give up my Lucky Tackle Box subscription to justify the payment but hey I got 24 months 0% apr! Spent this morning moving my old Lowrance 525 to the bow of the boat for vertical fishing. Wish I would have never sold my old Humminbird but hey I think this one is going to be better, thanks for the recommendation Wes. Also REALLY hope she arrives this week so I can put her on Sat. and hit the water Sunday.
  6. Off shore

    Thanks guys, I'm super stoked to get out and try it again. It's funny because I don't think 20 something me would enjoy this as much as 30 something me is, hahahaha
  7. Off shore

    Dude none of them in Knoxville had them, none. Ended up having to go to Academy.
  8. Off shore

    Welp, I fully intended on going fishing today. My plan was to buckle down and learn to fish offshore. I'd decided to get some marker buoys and drive around looking at structure until I graphed some good looking fish on structure mark it and fish it until I figured this derned offshore thing out. So I go to Wal-Mart last night to pick up some buoys and they don't carry them anymore. Last time I went looking for tungsten worm weights, they don't carry them either. Also, last time I went fishing with Pop's I went to go to Wal-Mart so he could pick up a few things he'd forgot and guess what? They're not open 24 hours anymore. Oh they carry 3-4 different kinds of Machetes, collapsible "fishing trays" for equipment, tents, compound bows ect, but no buoys of tungsten sinkers, smdh. Ok rant over. In all serious any tips otr advice on this structure fishing thing? Also, thank God I didn't go, what with all this rain we're getting right now.....
  9. I really need to hone my off shore fishing and I was wondering how much you all depend on your electronics when locating fish. I mean if your fishing offshore do you only fish areas that show fish on your sounder, or do you just fish likely areas? Do you use marker buoys or strictly bow mount sonar? Inquiring meds want to know.
  10. Evinrude Electric

    Doug there was another post you made awhile back about modern trolling motors and electronics being easier on batteries and I have to say, you sir were correct! Even though it isn't new this is the first "modern" trolling motor and I fished from about 7-3 yesterday and plugged my battery up when I got home yesterday to check to see how much juice I'd used and I was still at 70%. I was impressed. Last time out with my old one my battery completely dies after the same amount of time.
  11. Daiwa Jupiter Rod

    I was on Douglas a few years back in some of the worse wind I've ever experienced on a lake bundled up like that and that was exactly my fear.
  12. Daiwa Jupiter Rod

    Hey ya'll, don't know what kind of crankbait rods ya'll prefer but I like a medium action rod with a good bit of action at the tip to really whip it out there. Just picked up a Daiwa Jupiter 7.0 MH from Wal-Mart last week for $50.00 and I think it's going to be awesome. Haven't had a rod that I liked for crankbaits and spinners like this in years and I really think this one is going to be the ticket. I haven't had her out on the water yet but I zinged it around the yard and was really impressed, can't wait for this weekend.
  13. Evinrude Electric

    It is OMC, it says that on the bottom of the head next to the serial number. I'm pretty excited, lol. Curious if the quietness will help me catch more fish, it's for sure the quietest one I've ever had. Now to get a depth finder for the bow....
  14. Well I landed myself a 42lb thrust Eveinrude electric trolling motor. I paid $60.00 + a transom mount minn kota which was old. Felt like I made a good deal. Couldn't find much on them onlinf. I suspect they were made by Minn Kota for Evinrude. Anyone seen them or know anything about them? It's not wireless but supposedly has a sensor to eep you out of he mud? The foot pedal works similar too cable driven but it's electric. I dunno, I'm pretty excited.
  15. Wireless Trolling Motors

    Well thanks guys. One of the primary reasons I wanted to go with electric was because my boat is so small. I don't know about newer trolling motors but most of the older cable driven ones I've had have had a certain stiffness to the cables and even though I have an extended casting deck I'd still have a limited area with which to work with the cables. The Haswing I'm looking at has a wired foot pedal but it is electric and so I assume would afford more movability. The GPS features are nice, admittedly, but none of the models I was looking at come equipped with that.
