  1. That poor barn is like a black hole !! When the last screw was put in things kept coming there. inlaws, kids, wife , friends saw an empty space and had to fill it.
  2. Check out the pictures on the Shark downrigger weight sight. They caught some monsters in a baltic sea tournament last week Shark Cannonballs 2 hrs · Third place, biggest fish at Bornholm; Shark Cannonballs from facebook
  3. I need to find my barn !! I have a 1977 20' Thompson 228 hp mercrusier with a (mr) outdrive. its on a easyloader trailer with 6 bolt wheels and (non working )brakes. There is a head with a pumpout. Good fixer upper, or parts. I bought the islander and this has set in my barn since 08 . Would like it gone, $800 or make an offer .

  10. Northland has a rattle they use on jigs for bass. It slips over the leadre nice. Comes in a double "shotgun" or a single. I like gamagatsu (not spelled right ) round bend 3x strong in 1/0 for hooks
  11. 10" green dot spinnie with a Pro-Am fly off the Salmon river fall on 2013 Also have caught lake herring about 12" long on free sliders with a small stinger spoon a few years ago
  12. If it sat for that long check the wiring for mice damage. My Islander sat along time and the mice ate every bit of the insulation off the trailer wiring. I had bare wires the whole length of the trailer. Soulds like a nice boat if you can get it right.
  13. Watch the little metal clevis on the breakaway cable. Sometimes it will turn and worry its way through the cable and you lose a weight . Its the horseshew shaped piece that makes the loop for the snaps. I run the probe anytime the rigger is used.
  14. In the fifties the used to be called neckers knob !! So you could steer with your arm around your sweeties neck
