  1. Check your pm, thanks Frank
  2. The rod holders are mounted on gimbals that slide in the side flush mounts. Wife was fighting a fish that got wrapped in wire fiver. I grabbed the Dipsy and lifted it up as normal. Turned my head to look at her and her fish and heard kerplunk. Still not sure how it happened, never had anything like that happen in 9 years with that set up.
  3. Thanks, I appreciate it. Unfortunately ,do to my everything needs to be just so,I'll keep looking for the Big Jons. But if it doesn't turn up, I'll probably put mine up for sale & buy the Cisco's.
  4. Thanks for the reply, I talked with Big Jon as well. They are gonna check in the warehouse and maybe a few retailers. I will keep looking around Craigslist, eBay ect. All my riggers and rod holders are all gold so I would like to match them up if I can. The search continues.
  5. Big Jon Dual Gold Ratcheting rod holder Hi all, Do to an unfortunate incident one of my Big Jon dual ratcheting rod holder is now located in 490' of water at the 30 line north of Wilson. It looks like Big Jon doesn't make gold anymore,so I'm looking for a set up like the the one pictured. You can reply here via board or pm. Thanks for looking, Frank

    Overwidth Towing

    We use reliable permit solutions. They take care of everything for all the states you are going to travel. PA permits are only good for 5 days at a time.Not sure about NY or Ohio. The permit for PA used to be something like $30 if you went to DMV office. Reliable does the whole deal for you and emails you the permit to you, just call them at least a week in advance. Once your in their system, just a quick call and your set. I think they charged me around $55 last time we got one. Will gladly spend $25 extra not to go to DMV. here's their link: Good luck

    Yamalube Oil Change Kit Price Question for F 150

    I have twin 2006 Yamaha F150's on my boat. I have over 1300 hours on each engine( bought the boat with approx 130 hours each in spring of 2008). I have used Mobile one high mileage full synthetic 10W30 since day one. The high mileage formula has a few extra additives that are supposed to be good for the outboard application. Just remember that Yamaha is not in the oil making business, they contract it out to their specs. From my understanding the Mobile One I use exceeds those specs. A five quart jug from Wallyworld will run you around $24 or so. I am also going to give you a filter list for whats easiest to pick up locally for you: They are as follows: Alternatives Yamaha F150 Filters: Purolator PureOne: PL-10241 Purolator Premium Plus: L-10241 Hastings: LF-494 Baldwin: B-1405 WIX 51348 K&N: HP1002 Mobil-1: M1-102 Sierra Marine: 18-7906 Fram PH 3512 I did a bunch of research and have been using the Purolator Pure One filters. I think they do a great job and are readily available at Advanced, Autozone ect. I have been using this Lucas Marine Full synthetic gear lube. Here is a link on Amazon to what I have been using, But shop around, you can usually find a better deal if you look a little: And if you ever need to do your water pump I have found you can get away with up to 3 years in fresh water. I usually go every 2 just to be on the safe side. Here is a listing for the basic service kit for your engine: SIM marine is a great place to deal with and their service is excellent. Andy Jr runs the place and even lent me a special tool to remove the caps on one of my trim motors when I had to replace a seal. The above is the stuff I use and have over 2600 hours of real world use to attest to. Hope this helps you out. Take care. Frank

    Fishing the OBX?

    Hi, Depending on where you are staying , I will try to give some info. If you are staying North(Duck,Corolla,Kitty Hawk,Nags Head) Then fishing out of Oregon inlet would be your best bet. There are two inlets, the 1st one you cross is Oregon inlet. There is a marina right before you get to the bridge. They have numerous charters that run from there. Offshore trips run about $1900 or so for the day plus tips. The inshore will guides will take you inshore(sound side) or near shore(ocean side). The inshore trips that time of year will target flounder, blues,gray trout, small red drum, cobia & spanish mackerel. They will charge around $450 for a 1/2 day and $600 for 3/4. The offshore bite is going to be mostly Dolphin that time of year with a few yellowfin & wahoo mixed in & there is always a chance for a Marlin. Now, if you are staying further south on the island, say from Avon & south(Buxton,Frisco or Hatteras Village) you can then slide down to Hatteras inlet to fish. There are a number of great guides that fish out of Teach's Lair Marina. Inshore trips out of Hatteras run around $325/350 for 1/2 day and $500/600 full day. The offshore trips are much cheaper as well. You can go offshore for a full day from around $1000/$1300 a day depending on the boat. Same fish inshore/offshore as mentioned above. The Cobia bite will typically be winding down by then, but there are always a few around. The inshore/nearshore guys will also run you to some of the numerous artificial reefs/wrecks in the area to bottom fish for Amberjacks, Almacojacks, Triggerfish & Black Sea bass. Beach fishing that time of the year offers numerous species, Flounder,Gray trout,Sea Mullet,Blues,Red Drum,Black Drum,Croakers.You can buy an over sands permit from the National Park service.We cruise the beach looking for "holes" which are breaks in the outer sand bars that give the fish easier access to the troughs running parallel to the beach. Equipment wise, I would take a medium 7' spinning rod and a 10' to 11' surf set up with me. That way,you can cast plastics,jigs& bait to catch flounder,trout, sea mullet ect. Also,have some metal lures ready if some Spanish mackerel or Blues come crashing through. Tons of fun on lite tackle. You can then soak the big rod with fresh bunker or mullet for Drum & sharks. They always catch a few Cobia of the beach every year as well. We always stay at the south end of the island(Buxton,Frisco & mostly Hatteras). If you buy an over sands permit, make sure you take a jack,small shovel,a tow strap and a board to support the jack.We go down around 5 or 6 times a year.We just got back from a week duck hunting & a little bit of surf fishing,had a ball as usual. Here's a pic of the boss fighting a decent shark from the other day. Hope this helps, good luck and have fun!

  15. Just a follow up on boat length. Shot an email to Bill Hilts asking for his input. He said, as he reads the rules its an 18' minimum for all boats Pro or Am. You should check into it to make sure your not going to have a problem. Best of luck to all!
