  1. Past hour
  2. If the guy If the guy running the motor couldn't position the boat, it wasn't the motors fault. I have a remote for controlling my TM, but I seldom use it. It also has a foot pedal that I use most of the time. The remote lets anyone run the motor from anywhere in the boat. If the TM companies could design a peddle that was flat, like my Terrova, I'd go back to using one. Forcing the boat manufacturers to cut a hole in the floor to make the cable steer pedals usable is crazy

  4. Yesterday
  5. have broken one ankle and bad knees so standing on one leg is not possible. I have a minnkota copilot with the remotes and it has been a game changer for me. My advantage is i purchased the mounts that attach to the rod itself so can move freely any where in my boat ,can land a fish and control the boat at the same time. mounts are discontinued and wish i could get more but have worked out a way to attach them without. Works great for me
  6. Catt, I've done a lot of the same stuff as you, here in Missouri. We don't have gators of course, but we do have copperheads and the occasional moccasins. I'm not afraid of snakes, and we have others that are non poisonous, but I always just leave them be. I've seen plenty, but have never been bit. It pays to know what's in your area for sure!
  7. I've only every tied on a PB & J or an Alabama craw as far as brown jigs go and couldn't seem to get on a nice pattern with them. Got any recommendations ?
  8. Strong list. I would just add variations of brown to skirt colors for jigs.
  9. @soflabasser Exactly! I've hunted, fished, & trapped all over the Gulf Coast & while I always carried a gun of some type I've never fired a single shot other than hunting. Well except for one nutria rat in the bottom of a duck blind I had just jumped into! I'm way more concerned with water moccasins than alligators!
  10. Our series doesn’t allow motors unless you have a disability and doctors note. Next year we may change it but who knows I know I’ve brought it up several times to the other TDs. Pedals are huge in my series everyone has some pedal drive kayak. Me I stick to either my ATAK 140 or 120 I’m at a disadvantage either way this season though after my accident in November. I don’t have the strength or stamina to paddle for long or stand I’m still to shaky and unstable trying to sit or stand and the waters only 45* this past Saturday which if I fall in trying to stand again I’d rather it be warmer water.
  11. Yes I agree with slonezp, models such as the terrova and ulterra are valuable pieces of equipment in a walleye boat. I prefer a cable steer model for bass fishing myself too, however.
  12. When I was in my teens and twenties we waded all the time. Keep in mind that this was before “catch and release” was ever thought of. We had to go to croaker sacks to keep the fish in because if you put them on a stringer the gators would try to steal them. We didn’t think anything about it, it’s just what we did. However, with the influx of northerners feeding gators for some strange reason the gators have lost most of their fear of humans. I’m getting pretty old to wade nowadays but probably would in the right places. Wouldn’t be in a residential area though.
  13. I’m partial to falcon. I would take the falcon in a minute. Dobyns seems really well built but I think they are tip heavy and lack sensitivity. A lot of guys love them so I’m sure others will step in with a different opinion but I say give the falcon a try. You might find out you like it better than your Dobyns.
  14. green pumpkin/chartreuse and june bug
  15. My STAPLE colors are almost always silver (do they come in any other color?) My stapler color is candy apple red. Unfortunately, my boss keeps trying to steal it. But seriously, depending upon time of year and water clarity, the predominant colors are white or pearl, chartreuse, orange or red, chrome. It doesn't mean I don't use other colors, though.
  16. Local tackle dealer had a hot ad with Seagar Smackdown for 17.99 a spool. That'l work. Also found some Keitech Fats 3.8 in good colors for under five bucks. I'm set.
  17. Definitely isn’t I’m talking sandy creek in Monroe County I know there’s another one up north as I head to coyote hunting camp that would be in the closed zone
  18. If I had to make it as simple as i possibly could: Anything that goes on a hook: Green pumpkin & Black and Blue Skirt colors: Green Pumpkin, Black and Blue, Shad, White & Chartreuse Cranks: Red (craw), sexy shad, ghost shad, firetiger, bluegill Jerkbaits: Ghost Minnow, pearl, White & Chartreuse Any Topwater (belly color): white, black Honorable mentions: Watermelon (red flake or seed), plum, junebug
  19. I cleaned the cork with Mr Clean Magic Eraser, let dry then gave a very thin coat. I do not notice any feel difference in the cork. The key is to apply a very thin coat.
  20. I normally put little thought into the color of the plastics I throw. But with lipless cranks, The Red Eye Shad in orange craw is now just about the only rattle bait I throw anymore. I fish a lake with a big, weedy flat where the weeds in the spring are 2-3 down from the surface. On windy days I drift the flat, powered by the wind. Several times, I’d make a drift or two with minimal success using various colors of rattle baits. I’d make a third drift with the orange craw RES, and get 10. It’s happened on different lakes as well. Now I just start with the orange craw and seldom take it off
  21. Colors for me are very important and my go to are shad colors when bass are targeting threadfin, crawdad colors with contrasting highlites, rainbow trout swimbaits. Colors for soft plastic worms I prefer translucent smoke or cinnamon with purple or neon blue and silver/gold/black flakes for Shad colors. Black grape w/ blue neon, various brown and greens etc, I can get carried with soft plastics. Tom
  22. Fish tank what type of rod would you recommend as far as M F, MH M?
  23. NO, IT'S TIME TO STOP.
  24. Clear water: Anything with the words "pumpkin", "watermelon" or "grass" in the name (bright conditions), or Junebug (dark/cloudy conditions). Algae-stained (green) water: chartreuses. Tannin-stained or muddy (brown) water: oranges & reds. Blacks and whites anywhere.
  25. As I mentioned in another post, I tried U-40 and was pleased with the results on the first two test rods. I sealed all my rods after a good cleaning. As far as feel or the cork, I can tell the handle sealed over a non-sealed handle but the texture is so negligible it's certainly not a factor in not sealing the handles. Just apply it sparingly with a cheap foam paint brush and let it air dry. It's worth the money to protect your investment.
