    What is considered old for "the old ones"?
  2. FUEL FOR THOUGHT: Last summer the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) asked the public how much ethanol it wanted to be added to the nation’s gasoline supply. Recreational boaters as well as many other owners of gasoline engines and vehicles spoke up against increasing ethanol volumes under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). Regardless, earlier this month the EPA set the 2018 RFS at a 0.05 percent increase over the 2017 standard. Signed into law in 2005, the RFS requires an increasing amount of biofuels, such as corn ethanol, to be blended into the gasoline supply. When it was written, RFS assumed that America’s use of gasoline would continue to grow. Since 2005, however, gasoline usage has not increased as forecasted, which today forces more ethanol into each gallon of gas. To keep up with the RFS mandate, in 2010 EPA granted a waiver to allow E15 (15 percent ethanol) into the marketplace. However, only fuels containing up to 10 percent ethanol (E10) are safe for use in recreational boats and small engines. As higher blends enter the gas supply, the chance of misfueling increases. At the same time, E10 decreases fuel efficiency, increases fuel costs for consumers, and has questionable environmental benefits.

  3. Phoenix sighting

    LOL... I thought the same thing and asked when I was out there. Was told several lakes off of the Colorado river that runs nearby Martinez Lake is one I remember they often had a wet T shirts contest.
  4. Off shore

    First......Find a different Wally World....most are open 24 hours and carry the basic stuff. Second....That deep water has me baffled too.
  5. Ranger

    All boats are to expensive but it is what the market can stand I guess. I don't believe that anyone sets out to make a bad boat and they are plenty of good options out there. However with that said, I fished as a co angler in the different FLW events for a couple of years and rode in probably all of the different brands. Had previously owned Cajuns and Sprints but when I purchased a new boat it was a Ranger. Why? Because of the quality of ride and craftsmanship. Not because it was the fastest cause they are not.
  6. I have saw some with Colorado blades on the Tackle Warehouse site before. I'm sure they still have them.
  7. We have mountain type lakes Norris, Cherokee (Lower end upper end is riverine), Douglas and Tennessee river lakes Ft. Loudoun, Watts Bar, Melton Hill and Chickamuga. Mountain lakes are normally clear and deep. Tellico and Loudoun are connected by a canal Loudoun normally stained Tellico usually clear. Tennessee river lakes not so much.You can fish them any way you desire but normally shallow on the river lakes works most of the time. Clear lakes just the opposite except for spring time. Just my observations. Where you coming from?
  8. Rod Socks

    Cut those flaps off and sear the end and put heat shrink tubing on them. Shouldn't have to but it will work.
  9. Which Lifevest is best ?

    I have both types and don't have problem with either one. Don't take this the wrong way but how much is a life worth. just saying
  10. Dual charger

    I use two chargers and only one plug and a three way at the boat for years. No problems for me.
