  1. Put me in line. If you have any left, I would take a dozen 3s and 4s.
  2. I bought the cimeter and the straight fillet knives mentioned in the post above and have been happy with them. Don't let the low price fool you, the cimeter is the real deal.
  3. Came into a few boxes of older mylar (?) trolling flies. Many of them were folded or bent over. Other than that, they appear to be in great shape. Is there any way to straighten the kinked material? How do you store your flies to keep them straight? Thanks.
  4. Not sure if these qualify as cheap, but a quick google search came up with this: https://www.franksgreatoutdoors.com/luhr-jensen-j-plug-hook-harness-g66617 Why not tie some of your own? Get some split rings, bead chain, dacron/braid and hooks. Seems like you could tie up a bunch in half an hour or so.
  5. So, basically tie a loop in the wire and then thread the loop through the eye of the swivel and snug it down on the opposite side? No concerns about the kink in the line weakening it?
  6. Curious what knot you all use for attaching a swivel to wire line. What size swivel do you use?
  7. I should try and actually answer your question. I use Createx and Wicked airbrush paints. The Hobby Lobby in town has them. They may look expensive, but a little goes a long way. The Wicked pearl paints are great. Tried hobby paints from WalMart and they are a PIA, as they need to be thinned. I also use a hair drier to set the paint. When you put on your clearcoat, be sure to watch out for puddles or thick coats, as they tend to pull/wrinkle the paint.
  8. Sorry that you are having to deal with this. Sounds like a real short-sighted dirt bag. I would post this on every forum, Facebook, etc. As noted above, you would save a lot of people the agony of having to deal with this guy and cut off his business at the same time.
  9. I paint crankbaits and spoons. I use KBS diamond coat as a sealer. It's not cheap, but it works great. If you decide to buy some, shoot me a PM and I will tell you how to store it so it does not harden in the container.
  10. New-to-me 19' WT needs an electronics upgrade. Have been doing some research and I am a bit confused by all of the available options, transducers, down-scan, side-scan, structure-scan, total-scan, etc. It's a bit daunting. I am curious what everyone is using for a sonar, plotter, etc. Are you satisfied with it? Which features do you find useful and not so useful? Any regrets or problems with the unit you are using? I intend to use the boat for everything from bluegills with the kids to salmon and trout on the big water. As always, I appreciate the insight.
  11. Would you sell the 45s separately? If so, how much shipped? Who did the rebuild?
  12. Thanks guys. I appreciate the help.
  13. Just scored a new 19' walleye boat (walk-through) and I am in need of a cover. Boat will be stored under a lean-to on the barn. Boat has a 150 4-stroke, a kicker and if it matters, a single-axle trailer. Should I find a custom maker or is there something on the market that would work? Fabric? Features? Separate covers for the motors? If I go the custom route, is there anything that I should look out for or ask for? Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated.
