  1. Can you give us the length of the flathead??
  2. Whale tail benefits depend on the boat. Our first boat (1650AW Alumacraft with a 90 Yamaha) ran great without one. It had a good hole shot, decent speed for a 90 and could stay on plane at relatively low speeds as long as I had the trim tucked all the way under. Our current boat however (1752 Blazer SS with a 115 Yamaha) has ZERO trim capabilities, stands up out of the hole and takes a lot more speed to stay on plane without the whale tail. Though most anti-whale tailers will tell you that running one decreases top end speed, our boat actually runs a little faster with the whale tail due t
  3. I hate to admit this, especially with my wife and I both having small businesses (Jennifer a full time beauty shop and me a lawn care side gig), but I'd say at least 95% of my fishing purchases are made at Tackle Warehouse. Why??? Because currently the closest tackle shop to us is in Pevely and too many times I have driven north (Pevely, Fenton, Hazelwood and St. Chuck) with intentions of making specific purchases, only to find out when I got there that what I was wanting was out of stock.......... Plus, with Tackle warehouse I can get 2 day shipping for 5 bucks if I spend over $50.00 which
  4. Was hoping they were there already. But was also hoping everyone was still deer hunting........... I, too have been wrong before.......
  5. Wrench: if those pointers you offered Gavin are 65's (the ones you pretty much have to throw on spinning gear) I'd be interested in them.
  6. Had intentions of floating that morning myself. Went to the tdl access Friday evening to check river and it looked awesome. Got to mounts Saturday morning at daylight so I'd be first on the water. As I crossed the low water bridge my heart sank to see it muddy. I knew there were some pop up storms around Friday afternoon and evening. But had no idea the one around irondale had dumped so much rain. Knowing my muddy water limitations I turned the truck around, headed home and returned to my slumber....
  7. This may be the first pic I've ever seen Joe d smiling in......
  8. It's always funny finding out how many people call the same spots by different names.
  9. In the words of smallie bigs, "The internet. Ruining fishing holes since 1998".......
  10. Legends are super boats. But those as well as the other jet boats built here in the Mo-Ark region are built and set up for the gravel bottomed rivers of our region where we rarely rarely encounter the type of water that you all on the Delaware, Susquehanna, and other eastern rivers have to run. Seems like most of the boats you see from out there are heavy bottomed, console forward sleds, often with an additional layer of UHMW (??) plastic screwed to the bottom.
  11. Maybe I'm not reading this correctly but it seems like a real kick in the pants to the long time mercury dealers; especially for those in close proximity to evinrude dealers such as troutt and sons and cowtown. They're literally one exit apart.......
  12. I don't recall. But I can ask the guy who caught it when I see him at church Sunday.
  13. Though uncommon, I know of at least one 7 pound largemouth caught through that stretch and quite a few 4-6 pounders in the past ten or so years. As far as the smallies go, that species of fish seems to bring out the big eye in all anglers............. And for the most part that stretch isn't really known for giving really big smallies like some of the stretches of river a few miles downstream......at any rate a good day nonetheless and I appreciate the report. Been wanting to float the upper part but have been impatiently waiting for river and weather conditions to stabilize before doing so...
  14. Without a doubt, my favorite jet boat name ever................. "what's he saying?? " go faster"..............
