    Probably take a lot of flak for my opinion but it actually makes me sad to look at an injured animal in agony trying to pull a misplaced arrow out with his mouth.  I know you didn't make the shot but I wouldn't want it in my house. JMO

    I think your opinion is in the majority

    Bloody hell man. That's flatout out of my budget! I'm looking at motors for roughly 4K that I can see cylinder pressure testing done on and then cold start/shift/run etc. 

    It was a lot but it's a great feeling that in 10 years I have never turned the key more than once at the dock. I drive cheap used cars in exchange

    I'm going through this variation now but it's not for the faint hearted. It's been obvious to me for years that the new boats are just completely out of my range (Personally, I'm not going to spend what amounts to a mortgage payment on a toy) Anyway, the older hull and repower is what I'm looking at for a bigger 'offseason' boat' because I can't afford to consider having an old motor issue with customers on board. What I'm seeing is that even a repower is gonna have to be a used/rebuilt motor because a new Optimax or equiv is gonna be 14-20k depending on Hp. 

    Oh yeah my repower 90 hp with rewire and controls was almost 12k in 2011

  4. Hi green


    A lot to unpack here


    You can flatline and have success in the colder months with surface diving baits. As the surface temp rises you will need to gain depth. 10 color lead and 300 copper can be your friend. I would suggest staying in 70-90 fow.


    If you have not gotten into vertacle jigging I would highly suggest it. Get yourself a drift sock and use it along with trolling motor on windy days. 


    Theoretically with your setup you could use a bottom thumping rig with a heavy weight on a 3 way swivel

    So do you slip these on the rod line before you attach the snap swivel on rod line?

    Then after a hit and this snap slides down to rod swivel do you have to slide it back up the rod line as you are dropping the cannon ball? My pea brain isn't quite getting how this works.

    I would be interested in some of these if i knew how to use them. The free sliders work but i can see how these would be a definite upgrade.




    Attach main line to release


    Send it down x feet


    Attach this to main line


    Send it rest of the way


    Fish eats the cheater it slides all the way down to the main line lure
