  1. I've ordered weights multiple times from Harvey. The torpedoes run great and are of good value and quality. I will continue to order from him again in the future. His shipping is prompt and NO, I do not work for Harvey or personally know him. I'm just giving credit where it is due. I would not hesitate to recommend his product to anyone.
  2. I have an Okuma Blue Diamond BD-TR862MH wire dipsey rod with a loose reel seat. I get rotation from the 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock position. I'm not sure how to approach the repair as I am not a rod builder. Can I split the foam handle to remove the handle and then slide off reel seat then apply epoxy or adhesive to blank and then reset seat? I really like this roller rod and don't think Okuma makes them any longer. Advise please and Thanks in advance for any comments.
  3. Yeah. We call that special effect "swim head". I kinda enjoy it. Sort of like the lake staying with ya.
  4. Thanks for the replies gentlemen.
  5. Anyone know how the state launch west side is? Should I bring waders to launch? Possible shakedown tomorrow.
  6. Here ya go bro.....23"W (doghouse to gunnel panel) X 18L (cockpit to transom) Port and starboard are identical. Thickness of cushion is 3" at transom side to 3.5" towards bow side. I wouldn't go thicker that 3" at transom because of backrest. These jumpseats don't get used much cause they're in the way when working the riggers AND people tend to stand on them AND they slip forward which could cause the standing person to go for an unintended swim. We use them when fishing is slow and we have more than usual on board. Can't help with the starter issue as my 22' 1988 HT is powered by a 3.7L.
  7. We were there the 8th. Lots of eyes were at the parking area but not up to the barrier at the time. Some real beauties. At the barrier a few northerns were seen. Also saw a lot of rudd trying to run the barrier. Can't say if they're still there.
  8. Congrats Spurs. Was good talking to you Friday. We managed enough perch for supper today.
  9. Saw a woodchuck this morning at his hole. Wasn't out very long, it might have seen it's shadow. Also had a bald eagle flying overhead while ice fishing silver lake. I think it was looking for fish on the ice.
  10. Great buck Doc. Mind if I ask what broadhead you using? Gotta love bloodtrails you can follow without stooping.
  11. Bump for a fellow sabre owner
  12. Yep, the fish are fine but the real trophies in the pictures are the smiling faces of friends and loved ones.
  13. No. It's a low profile swivel base. I was able to scab it together and it will probably function OK. Problem was in the spring loaded position lock pin. Thanks for responding
  14. Wrong configuration but thanks for the reply feeder.
  15. Looking for an in good condition Walker short swivel base (WF00650) OR the spring loaded locking pin only. Thanks
  16. Trim off all dark meat and the lateral line off your fillets and they'll taste a lot better. Some guys bleed the fish out before it goes in the box. I prefer kings and coho over 'eyes. I did some 'eyes on the grill that we caught Thursday and think I shouldda hit them with a lot more old bay, very bland.
  17. I usually keep a can of wasp killer onboard just because.
  18. love that show. we don't miss a single episode. We're glad that the airplane harpooners haven't been featured lately.
  19. Nice. Love Presque Isle.
  20. Is it possible to replace driveshaft bellows on an Alpha 1(1989) without removing bellhousing? Exhaust sleeve is in good shape and shift cable bellows also in good shape as I did lower cable a few years ago. Can I fabricate a pull/push tool to facilitate install? Thanks in advance for advice.
