  1. I was wondering when someone with some knowledge would be able to tell the correct species ! Great guess !!! Hehehehe
  2. I love his enthusiasm for the outdoors. He thinks we're just fishin.....
  3. That's my son's sponsor ! And yes, he's a great guy !!!
  4. We stocked a dozen of them and have lost prob 4 over 25 years. Truth be told, it was sad cause these guys are a blast to watch cruise around and the fact they have been in there for so long, BUT there isn't a weed in the place. They will follow the lawn mower to eat the clippings. Kinda makes it hard for the other species to hide.
  5. Well, this guy went belly up at dads pond so I went to the rescue. Tried to revive him for about 10 min but he was past the point. Reminded me of a late stager cause he had a "mush" to him. Old grass eater was over 25 years old. Sure made my son's day to see a slob like this though. Almost 40#, 43 1/2". He will be repurposed into a hand made recurve covering and potentially a quiver if there's enough left.
  6. As a rookie to lakeO, I can appreciate the guys like Joe. Never met him, and didn't hear about him till this thread, but dang, leaving a legacy behind like the stories shared here sure humbles me. People with real character are not the norm, and it's easy to see what kind of guy Joe was. Rest in peace.
  7. For a boat that size I'll assume your multi species. My bow mount (19' sea nymph) is used for all kinds of things. I literally couldn't imagine not having one. It's also another way to get back to the dock if the main or kicker fail as well. Auto pilot is nice, but imo for the big boats. A bow mount can just flat out be used for so many things. Anchor mode, drift fishing, sneaking into a spot etc. My worst day or when trolling into 3's-4's with sustained winds I can get 4-5 hours out of it. If I was diligent in making sure the kicker is doing the pushing it will last even longer. On a normal day trip, I always get the trip out of it, usually 6hours. I have a 24v 60" motorguide paired with my Lowrance but Minn Kota is a fantastic unit as well. 2 Walmart batteries and a good onboard charger.
  8. But think of the "cost" of buying some fish at Wegmans right now. You could pay the ultimate price.
  9. I can't remember exactly, but the quote for aluminum was just way too much to justify. Doing a good 3/4" ply and sealing it should last 20 years at minimum, as the factory/ non sealed lasted almost that. Somewhere on here is my build with pics when I renovated my entire interior.
  10. Why not go to a bank ? I think it will be almost impossible to find what your looking for. A turnkey boat can def be had for under 20k, but finding someone to sign over the paperwork while you make payments.... Not so much
  11. Those times when spell check can help prevent serious confusion .....
  12. Salmon gear to walleye gear... There is some gear I use dual species like my rigger rods and wire dipsys. Other than that, I focus on leadcores for eyes. Salmon - 4 wires and 2 riggers is a great program and fairly easy to manage Walleyes - as many leads on planer boards as I can legally send, maybe 2 dipsys if the bite is hot and 1-2 riggers. Brand of rod isn't as important as brand and class of reels is, imo. I've been a fan of the convectors for value reasons. A medium action rod for dipsys with twili tips, and at least 1' difference in length. A Med or ml rigger rod, and board rods I also like a M - ML depending on the backbone of the rod.
  13. I will actually pay him asking PLUS all of my earnings from last year's 2nd place LOC steelhead...
  14. Medium heavy and at least 1' difference in length for inside / outside
  15. Ditto. I used nautolex 88 ( roll on ) for my nautolex vinyl. Has held up great for 2 seasons on my floor.
  16. My most productive day for browns was on a stiff east. 4'rs and 30+ fish in a few hours. Lost a toad right as we were coming into the harbor too.
