  1. Wow, I'm very saddened by this news. Never had the privilege of meeting Bo but feel like I knew him from all of his posts and all of your wonderful comments about him. Prayers lifted for his family.
  2. Unfortunately not. New mount is completely different using two large allen head bolts rather than the old collar clamp. Good news is that the new mount doesn't creak and groan like the old one, at least so far.
  3. It's been praised ad nauseum but by golly, after fighting for well over 30 years to keep my boat under control and in position, it's just an absolute treat to hit a button and have that done for me especially when fishing alone. I replaced my trusty Tour 109 with a Tour Pro 109 in February and it is just so dang relaxing to camp on a spot, make as many bait changes as I want, eat a sammich, etc, and not think twice about the boat drifting into the bank or a dock or rocks or 100 yds away from the spot where I've got 'em corralled. There is no doubt that I'm catching more fish and if I get an inkling for a bait change, there's no more reluctance to stop and make it because I'm going to blow into the bank. Time will tell on the reliability of the new Tour Pro but so far, it's fantastic. Note: the old Tour 109 is in the truck ready as a backup. 🙂
  4. Could be a new thing...wiener jerky
  5. It's been a few years but I either read on here or someone told me that Dyna Prop in Cape Fair would let you test a prop before buying. I have no idea if that's still true or not.
  6. Launched at Viola yesterday. Mine was the only rig in the lot besides a mobile dock repair guy. Last year I had to scrounge for a parking spot there.
  7. No, Blue Eye to Tucker Hollow via 14. I can see looking at the map that 160 looks very interesting. 😲
  8. Forced as I am to live far too close to the concrete jungle due to nearby grandchildren, I love those southern MO and northern AR two lane roads. Of course, with almost two years of retirement under my belt, I'm not quite in the same hurry as I used to be. My apologies to the locals stuck behind the old guy with the boat lollygagging down the road enjoying the scenery. 😁
  9. Thanks for posting. I've been looking for a tool like that. 👍
  10. Dock, I just can't understand how you can catch 'em without 9K of electronics on your bow. j/k. I enjoy your posts.
  11. Bo, does the Tour Pro come with a remote? If yes, have you tried it and what do you think of it?
  12. Good info here. https://www.in-fisherman.com/editorial/five-fish-lures-ultimate-ned-jig/360813 I really like the weedguard and the hook size. Found some on the tackle rack in the K.C. Harter House last spring before I left for the tundra. I had to laugh when I found them. I can guarantee you there is no fishing tackle in any grocery store in my neck of the woods. 😄
