  1. The model, generation will come up on the first splash page. It'll also show all of the functions (SI, DI, Mega, etc). Bar code stickers don't just come off. They're secured pretty well. Like Steve said, I'd be a lil leery on this one. Do a complete function check on it before pulling the trigger.
  2. Drove by Cherokee yesterday. Lake is still down at ~winter pool. Be sure to spend some time looking at charts before you head out. All kinds of little nasties lurking just under the surface at this water level. REC staying in the main channel(s) until you familiarize yourself. With the coming full moon I'd say the LM will be up and locked on. Spots and SM tend to spawn a little sooner so you'll likely find them in about every stage. Dunno squat about crappie. Airborne only catches them by mistake. same-same w/ stripers.
  3. Y'all better be careful about bragging on y'all's big heads. Andy may start charging more for all that extra cranial capacity. Just sayin' . . .
  4. Figgers. What do Yankees know? Ol' punkinhead.
  5. Congrats on the new sled. Tin boars today are nothing like the one I had 20+ years ago. Sturdy, smooth riding, smart layouts.
  6. Yep, have seen them in the water and they work. VDGIF (VA's counterpart to TWRA) use artificial structure and cover in many of our lakes and rivers. Almost all of the fish attractant signs you seen on VA waters are tied to artificial arrays. You have to have permission to sink these and there are strict guidelines as to where they can/cannot go (for all the obvious safety reasons). Airborne likes bricks. And sticks.
  7. 'Nuther bump. Carolina blue is the shizz on Kerr this weekend, Doug. The contrast against the stained water is a difference maker. Don't use any of Doug's craws, doods. Save yourselves the heartache and trouble and send them to me. I'll dispose of them for you.
  8. Confessions of a [fishing] crack addict.
  9. Softy - I still have much of my old stuff. It still doesn't catch fish. Buying a new gizmo may not help that but it sure makes me feel better . . . well, for a little while. Then it goes in the pile w/ the old stuff that doesn't catch fish. Airborne is a tackle hoarder. That said, what fisherman isn't???
  10. I don't think so, Steve. I think it's all about feel - being able to detect the slightest of changes in weight or movement.
  11. Wes - the trend these days is for lighter rods. I'm gonna guess the action differences you're experiencing are a function of the newer, lighter weight rod blanks. This hasn't been an issue for me because I like a little softer tip. Enhances sensitivity and casting distance. B
  12. I believe the change to new, ethanol-resistant material took place in 2007-2008. Anything before that would be considered 'old'. Would be worth the time and effort to check out your fuel lines, filters.
  13. ^^What Andy said. Every Merc tech I've known says blue Sta-bil is the additive of choice if you have to run ethanol fuel. To a person they say run pure gas if you have the option. I go out of my way to get pure gas for my sled.
  14. I'd just like to state, for the record, that sneaux sux.  Geez, I hate this stuff.  C'mon spring.
