  1. Also, your boat number and your registration number are different. Mine are at least. I found out that somebody went into the dmv and bought my registration tag earlier this spring. It was an ordeal trying to register my boat this summer when the registration renewal was due. They kept trying to tell me that I had already gotten my registration and didn’t want to believe when I told them that I, in fact, did not have up to date registration papers.
  2. My tackle box is covered in white bass crap too. I didn’t even realize it until I got home and unloaded it from the back of the truck. Nasty sons of guns.
  3. The stupid dog I had back in high school would eat literally anything. He would steal candy bars if you put one down. He has eaten axle grease and he had a phase where he ate my dad’s trailer light wires on his truck just about as soon as my dad would replace them. Boy, my dad gave that dog quite the whooping for that and finally cured his desire to eat trailer light wires. Dumb dog.
  4. I was there last week and fished the night until about midnight. We caught a few but it was pretty tough. Plastics seemed to be better than the jig. Managed one nice 3.5 pounder and some shorts. Dad caught some short LM and a smallie all on a 6-7” plastic worm.
  5. I keep my pedestal up front. I’m pretty sure I’d end up in the drink without it. I don’t seem to have that issue in the back of the boat. I’d say a recessed trolling motor pedal might help. 🤷‍♂️
  6. Looks like a good knot. It also looks complicated and difficult to tie, but easy to screw up. I’ll have to spend some time with it. I don’t use braid much. I do tie leaders and tippet flyfishing. I also have started using a short flourocarbon leader occasionally with my fluorescent mono when fishing in the daytime.
  7. I’ll tell ya. If I were buying a new boat, I’d be hard pressed to put anything other than a new Evinrude G2 on there. Those things are awesome and you can get one heck of a good warranty with one also.
  8. I may have to try the FG knot. I’ve been hearing a lot about it lately. Is it easier to tie than a blood knot? The blood knot is pretty thin.
  9. I usually use a surgeons knot or blood knot. I’d probably use a double uni if I were connecting a leader to braid.
  10. I saw that and immediately thought of a few guys on here.
  11. I caught them on a black spinnerbait pretty good last night. Had a few jig bites and worm that were really subtle. I didn’t have to be in the brush, but being near it seemed to be helpful.
  12. They are definitely become no more proud of their products. The jigs I’ve been using the past few years were $5-$5.50 for a two pack. They just “updated and upgraded” their jigs and they are priced $4.89 for one. Basically doubled the price. They are good jigs, but now too expensive for my taste. I am getting close to just making my own. I almost started making them myself earlier this year, but I decided not to. This might make me reconsider making them myself.
  13. I especially like the way she held it for the camera. As if it were the most natural thing ever and she had done it hundreds of times. 😁
