  2. The Bay Bridge Sport Shop has 2 "fisherman's apartments" for rent by the day or week.
  3. I have a large Rapala plastic cutting board the same size as my cooler... a few wet towels between board and cooler lid keeps the board in place. https://www.amazon.com/Rapala-Pro-Series-Board-19x48/dp/B0084ED9RK/ref=sr_1_5/136-0515460-2602058?ie=UTF8&qid=1527863049&sr=8-5&keywords=rapala+cutting+board&dpID=21E4b4QanOL&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

    What fish finder do I buy?

    Decide on you price range, then get the most "pixels and power" you can afford. Duel frequency is a great feature, the other special features are up to you. Most manufacturers offer the operator manuals free online in PDF format. Download the manuals and check for ease of use. Some units make you go through a ton of menu options to make a simple adjustment. I chose a Furuno 625 unit 6 years ago because it has dials and knobs rather than a ton of buttons, and their bullet proof reputation. Take a trip to Bass Pro or Cabela's and look at the units for yourself. Play with the functions and find which unit will work best for YOU in your price range.
  7. I was out a week ago Monday. Going out, no problem, stayed on my saved gps plot from last fall. Coming back in, my 17 foot tin boat with the top and side curtains up got hit with a gust of wind from the North East, and pushed me off course to the West. Before I could correct, I slid into the mid channel debris and hit the steel that's just below the water... ( it had a buoy marking it last fall) Ended up with a 14ft. gouge along the bottom of the hull, a sheared off rivet, and a snapped off Airmar P66 transducer. I've made repairs and am good to go, but may run out of the Genny until they dig the debris out.... not worth risk with a light boat.

    Older Lund w rotten flooring

    tmcaul, On the back of the boat, usually on the upper right hand side, you will find a series of numbers stamped on the transom. In most cases, the last 2 numbers are the year the boat was manufactured. As far as replacing the floor, time consuming, but not a hard job. Best advise is try to save the old pieces and use them as templates to cut the new floor.

    Yakima Flashers

    I use the Hot Spot version of these, usually running an Apex 4-5 ft. behind. Adds a bit of flash, but not as aggressive as a normal flasher
  11. Trax-tec sell a base plate that you can use to mount accessories. I used them to mount my older rod holders for my tracks. https://www.traxstech.com/product-p/a-600-6.htm
  12. After seeing this thread, I made a Shelton Fish Descender out of a coat hanger and a 1lb. snap weight. Looks like it will work just fine, and can't beat the price...
  13. Square tail, brown, V shaped tail, Atlantic.

  15. Starret Surface Plate cleaner. Some of my grinders at work are cream colored and get covered with grinding dust, graphite and coolant. Surface plate cleaner is the only thing that cleans them up. I use it on all my light colored surface to remove the gunk.
