  1. I received a answer from Garmin. They don't offer the Force without the foot control. At $3,100 I think I will look at other companies
  2. When buying the Force is there a option to buy it at a cheaper price without the foot control? Man I was very surprised with the very high price. Considering many of us never fish bass many of us would have no use for the foot control. I have been considering buying the Garmin ultra and the Force but those prices are crazy to other options.
  3. I am going to have a Garmin brush less trolling motor and plan on fishing tuna using spot lock. No anchor line to mess with and could slowly move about the bank.
  4. I have used a similar recipe for 25 years but I only cold smoke for 24 hrs never over 70 deg.
  5. I dont see how this situation will improve before June. And even then IMO it will not be business as normal until there is a flu shot for the Chinese virus. The reality is we need to think about the long haul
  6. I use atlantic mackerel for live bait for striper and blue fin
  7. The durability. As a commercial fisherman for the last 33 years I watched the Maine Marine Patrol buy several brands of boats for service in a ocean environment. One brand held up ok the other two got really beat up quick. Those may work well for most but I wanted a boat that I could fish lakes as well as the ocean for striper, haddock and a few blue fin tuna trips per year out to 20 miles or so. The west coast style boats are designed with fishing the ocean in mind. The rails are perfect for the flush mounted rod holders used for the 130 class rods used for blue fin tuna. I would not need to load the tuna I would just tow it in at 7-10 kts as we have done at times in the past. We tow them for a hour or so minimum regardless so towing them two hrs is no big deal and it would actually cool the fish much better then ice.
  8. April 1st Honda offers a 6 year warrentee vs a 5 year in March.
  9. I am very impressed with how well they are built and believe it or not this was a couple 1,000 cheaper then the other 18' boats of this style I looked at. Lifetime warrentee on the whole boat including the deck.
  10. After many days and many conversations with dealers from mostly the west coast I found a boat. I looked at Hewes Craft, North River and Duckworth. There is only one dealer for any of these boats here on the east coast. A dealer here in Maine just took on Duckworth boats in February. This was the first one he has sold. It has a 135 Honda and starting April 1st they come with a 6 year warrentee. I pick the boat up on Wednesday.20'6" long with a 96" beam 135 Honda and a 42 gal tank dry weight of 1,656 lb
  11. I went to the only Duckworth dealer on the east coast on Wednesday. Man the 20' Adventure Sport was beautiful and I was very impressed with how well built they were. For me it would be a boat that really should last a lifetime.
  12. I am looking for Cannon Mag 10 down riggers or others that have the bottom tending option
