  1. I will take this. I have a son at Missouri State how far are you from there?
  2. IMO this is one of the best trolling motors ever made. Tough as nails and they just work. I probably have thousands of hours on mine.
  3. The constant whining of the turbo would drive me nuts with one of those.
  4. Thanks for bringing that up...I need that too!
  5. Get a 6gl bucket with a twist lock lid like they use for chlorine in pools...I have one here if ya want it. Drill full of holes...like 100 of them to within 4" of the bottom and tie a rope to so it can go down at least 5' below the surface, you will need a small rock for weight. I have had minnows in one for 2 weeks now, it will easily hold 100+. Pull the bucket up and net ya a dozen or so at a time as needed...the rest will be there next weekend or whenever you need them.
  6. Lord knows I should have that!!!
  7. I'm so ready to get on the water. Can I strap a5gl bucket of water to the lower unit and let it idle while towing, you know...for break in time?

  9. I have never been a fan of trout as table fare. Maybe soaking them in that bourbon for a few days would help.
  10. I've never see anyone ELSE throw it on spinning gear either. It just makes sense, a little effort and it goes and goes. I'm probably throwing a lighter rig than most people also.
  11. I throw it on a 4000 size spinning reel and 50lb braid. I have literally thrown it all day before with no ill effects, lol.
  12. I hate the A-Rig blah blah blah. Why? Too expensive? Don't understand it? It does NOT throw fish in the boat no matter what. It WILL catch them when it's tough. Most of us get limited time on the water, and I guarantee if I'm in the boat with you catching keepers on the rig while you drag a jig for 4 hours without a bite you'll reconsider before heading home skunked. Most A-rigs are not ready to go out of the package, very few are made well and need tweaking whether it's new snaps, swivels, centering pins, blades etc. Most people I see throw way to heavy of a rig also, my favorite combo is no weight on top 2 wires, 1/16oz on bottom outside 2 wires and an 1/8th oz on center back wire. I took a guy out a couple weeks ago to a secondary point that I KNEW had fish on it. 20 minutes of jerk bait and ned rig without a bite I had to prove it...pulled the A-Rig rod out of the box and caught 2 in 5 casts. There are many more tournaments won on other baits then there are the A-Rig. It has it's time of year, just like jerkbaits, spinnerbaits, topwater...
