  1. I put this one on my boat this fall. Did it myself and it took me about 4 Hrs. Arch: http://www.atlantictowers.com/at_sub/products_s_fa.html Main Web site: http://www.atlantictowers.com/ Tell them you want a free stern light and they will give you one. That is whet they offer at the boat showes. Good kuck
  2. That was the one thing I am happy we did. Our unit has 4 bunks in the back. When we go to Ocean City Md. they both bring a friend. This way they like to go. Now the he can drive the boat by himself he wants to go. I will tell you my unit is a 2004 and I have about 12000 - 15000 miles and we all had a great time seeing a lot of different things together. You should have a lot of fun! Enjoy it Rod it goes fast.
  3. Rod, It looks real nice, good luck with it. We try to use ours as much as we can. I have a partner so it is not to hard to get time off. Most of the time I have to take when the kids are out of school. We go to Ocean City, Md every year for the past 13 years. Last year was the first year I brought it up to lake O. I am bringing it up sometime this August and leave it and the boat till sometime in October. Last year I went up every weekend, we will see how many times I get up this year. Long 4 1/2 drive Friday after work and up by 4am to fish. It wasn't bad if the kids are off school on a Friday or Monday. Would like to get out west, but my son is 16 and lost his mind. He like girls and going to work instead of fishing and RVing. I think he will get over that in a few years. Two years ago we took a trip to Dallas via Georgia,Alabama,Arkansas,Mississippi,Louisiana,Missouri,Tennessee, Illinois and a few others just to put the little stickers on the side of the RV. I think it worked out to 13 states, 3000 miles in ten days. I think the one thing everyone remembers it Alligator road kill. Don't see much of that in Jersey. Anyway it's real cool you should enjoy it. Good luck with yours.
  4. Rod, What kind of RV did you get?
  5. I will stick with what I catch!
  6. That is one of the things I like about fishing and RVing with the family...making memories !!! You are right he will always remember when he looks at that fish.
  7. Rod, I would like to stay at Knight's key campground. They have a dock for the boat at your site. But the place was sold three years ago and they dont know when the place will be shutt down. The new owner is going to put up condos. Looks like they might stay open because of real estate sales are poor now. I will let you know about campgrounds when I get back. Thanks for the info on the boat, I will give them a call. Thanks Rick
  8. Rod, Nice Pic's Let me know if you find the name of that guy with the boat. I will have to try the key lime pie! Thanks Rick
  9. Rod, I am going down to Marathon the first week of April. We are going to bring the RV, so I have to leave the boat home.Do you know of a place to rent a boat without going broke? The lowest price I have found is Captain Pip's. Looks I can get a 19' for around $125.00 a day. Thanks Rick
  10. I learned how to catch Salmon on lake O. I found this site just before my first trip to the lake and used all of the info from this board and advise from the members to put fish in my boat. It is a great place for help unlike the tackle shops who just want to sell you stuff. Now when I go into a shop at the lake I know what I need to buy, not just what is not selling. Thanks again for everyones help! Hope I will be able to help someone someday. Rick
  11. It’s like women’s shoes! "I had that lure a long time you just don’t remember it!"
  12. OK $75.00 for the set. I will pay the shipping up to $10.00 witch should cover just about anywhere in the US. I would just like someone from here to get them if needed. I will put them on e-bay this weekend. Thanks Rick
  13. A Wish for You in 2008 May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts. May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for $100 bills. May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips! May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires and may happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy. May the problems you had forget your home address! In simple words ............ May 2008 be the best year of your life and put fish in the box !!!
  14. I was nice this year. I let my wife so ok to a new boat! In respect for her I went out and got a brand new one within a week.
  15. How come when they win, they cheat? Watch next year, when the 8 wins now that he has a good team it be just because he is good. LOL
  16. Does the fishing help the economy. I think so! Just this past season I drove up to the lake 6-7 times this fall. I spent $100.00 for fuel each way, me, my son and my wife had to buy a fishing licenses, lures at three or four tackle shops, fishing cleaning, RV parking for two months, food at a lot of places because after getting in at 10 pm who wants to cook and many other things. The drive tanks me almost 5 Hr's after work on a Friday night. Getting in around midnight and up be four Am. My point is that I live about a one hour drive from some of the best saltwater fishing. I drive up the the big O for one reason. Big Fish! One weekend We did not catch any fish, but I went back. If I did not catch as many fish as I did or got 1 or 2 fish I don't think I would go up so many times and if that was the case year after year I would stop going up. We need to have the fish. Fore me the fishermen and for all of the people who live near the lake and make a living. Just my 2 cents
  17. I would love to go to that race but I don't think the 48 car is going to race it!!!
  18. Hi guys! I am looking to dock my boat on the Salmon River the last week of August and leaving it there to mid Oct. Does anyone know of a place? Thanks Rick
  19. Did not think about that. I going to get the Hartland rods. Thanks for all of the help. Rick
  20. Looks like the Hartland is the way to go. I was looking at: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templ ... &noImage=0 But no one said any thing about them. Thanks for the help
  21. Thanks guys What about roller guides? I was thinking I would get more life out of the rod with them.
  22. I have been looking around the site for awhile and need some help. I am running out of time. I only have 8 months before I head back up to the big O for some Salmon and I don't know what to buy. I want to pull Dipsey’s with wire next year. I fish the lake 4-6 weeks in the fall. I would like to get two rods and reels, but don't know what to get. I would like to buy something good but I don't think I want to buy the best with only using them for a short tome each year. I would also like to try them in salt water for striper's. If anyone has any ideas on rods and reels please let me know. Thanks for the help. Rick
