  1. Islander transom I saw wasn't sealed in so just by opening up the motor cover you can reach back and poke the wood with a screw driver for softness.
  2. Batteries are only meant to have a shelf life of 1 year. The date code on them is usually a black sticker with white lettering. The first should be a letter and runs from A to L. January to December. A for January, B for February, etc. The last number is for the year, 4 for 2014, 5 for 2015. Etc. Once a batter hits 1 year from the date on the battery it is too be pulled and returned to the manufacturer. However in many circumstances this does not happen. Batteries are also supposed to be rotated, closest to the front of the shelf, closest to expiration. If its followed the fresher batteries are in the back.
  3. No need for backing. Put a few wraps of electrical tape on the spool so your wire doesn't slip, and reel the wire onto the spool under tension. Okuma 30 series hold 1000 ft of wire perfectly. It can be a good idea once your out on the water to let out several hundred feet of wire on an un tripped dipsy then reel it back in to ensure a tight fill. There are videos on youtube of how to do this as well.
  4. I don't believe the cannon power ports they have out now will line up with the old plug in for the mag 10's. I could be wrong.
  5. I always thought that was possible and I buy my fuel at the Fast Trac in Wolcott but I didn't realize it was that much. Good tip for sure.
  6. Used Mag 10's show up in the classifieds quite often and you may be able to find a deal on one for about $150 or even less.
  7. There's a lot more money out there too it looks like. Some of the boats you see are insane. I could be wrong tho.
  8. Yes. Mark the copper every 50 to 100ft and you will be fine
  9. You also have to take account a thicker diameter on the copper as well so reel size can be an issue. Bloodrun has charts on their website of what fits what. I use 45#
  10. In a creek behind my parents house we used to find them all the time as well as Port Bay swimming as kids they would be around the docks. Cant remember if we ever cracked them open or not. most were in the 3-4 inch range. never that big.
  11. Yet so nice to just hop in and go without waiting in a line to get in or out.
  12. Want to make my own and saw an article on here before but couldn't find it. Just curious as to what material is best to use. Thanks ahead of time.
  13. 10s are best for 10a's. I prefer black but some will say otherwise.
  14. The marketplace was definitely weak this year. That place was packed last year.
  15. Do you happen to have any replacement netting?
  16. Wow! what a beauty. Wish I was in the market. To my knowledge Pro hunters were mainly single screw I thought. G
  17. Free make sit even better. Didn't get to fish this last year due to unforeseen circumstances but I cant wait for this year.
