  1. Yes I may be going that rt. I would probably be using 2 jacks if I did. I see you're a local guy. Tight lines!
  2. Thought of this too, just have to find a dock I can leave it at for a bit.
  3. Yes I thought of that too. Just wondering, lots of videos of guys doing but with smaller boats.
  4. I have a 24' Thompson, its a pretty big boat, hard top and all. I need to replace some of the rollers in trailer. The problem is I don't think I want to put boat in water to do it as some of the rollers are completely gone and I don't want to damager the hull if I can help it. Previous owner put a piece of wood where the rollers should be with a rag over the wood. My question is is would it be that much trouble to try to raise boat up off of trailer to change some of these rollers out or do I just need to launch it and get it off trailer?
  5. my son and I went out of Mexico point with my little 18 footer yesterday, cruised around for several hours. Zero zip nada, nothing was happening for us. We were running spoons mainly, we put on a flasher fly rig to maybe attract some lookers but no dice.
  6. Yes kinda what I was thinking. Getting a Helix for my big boat and I am trying to figure if I needed DI/SI or not....probably not.
  7. Is side imaging and or down imaging really that practical when trolling for salmon/trout?
  8. What would be a good trolling rod for browns in terms of length, action?
  9. I don't have a kicker so that won't be a problem, though I can see how it would be.
  10. So you want the short booms on back and maybe long booms on sides? Reason I'm asking is I want to get downriggers with extendable booms to keep cables from props and so fourth. Was going to get cannons with extendable booms for stern and I found 2 with 24" booms cheap thought I could put those on sides.
  11. Do many of you run short boom riggers(like 24") off the sides of your boat? Wondering how, if at all that will interfere with turning at all?.....
  12. Anyone run 150' copper on a magda 30DXT? I just purchased a 30DXT and it doesn't look like it will be big enough.
