    Please help me price a rig

    Think I'll CL it in about three weeks, depending on weather, unless someone on here is interested.

    What's the best month to sell a rig? March?

    Please help me price a rig

    Thanks for the nice comment, fishinwrench. Yes, that motor is a classic. I simply haven't been using the rig enough to justify keeping it. It's taking up garage space. It's too nice a rig to leave outside even under cover, IMO. I'm going to wait a month or so before putting it on CL. Hopefully, I can sell it here to some avid fisherman who will have it out every week. $4k firm.

    Because it's such a pristine rig for its age, plus the upgrades I've done, I'm asking 4K firm.

    Yes, I need to sell it...not using it enough to justify having it in the garage.

    Pretty much have to sell it as a complete rig, or it might be hard to sell. Sorry.

    Open the floodgates

    Huge rain today in the Beaver Lake headwaters. Lake is only 2.2 feet below flood stage now. Rapid rise coming.

    Rain on the way

    Back in the day, (1960s-70s) we used to catch more fish on Beaver without fish finders than people catch now with them. Has the fish population declined?

    White Bass Run

    Anyone noticed the run starting? Usually small males come upriver first.

    Polar Bear

    I knew a couple of guys way back in the early years of Beaver Lake that caught 10 bass in less than an hour that weighed about 63 pounds total. That was very unusual, even back then. Those bass probably were original stockers. The growth was incredible in the first four years of the lake staring to fill over the fields and woodlands. The five largest would have been well over 35 pounds total.

    Feathers and Fins where is he?

    He was kind enough to meet me at the 12 bridge ramp one day. Took me out in his boat and showed me how he catches crappie. Very nice and generous man!
