  1. Past hour
  2. I have a Lund Fury XL Sport, which is very close to the adventure. Can't say enough good things about it.
  3. Most dealers sell consignment for 10%-15% commission. I put cash down. He sold my boat for free since I purchased from him. If you are unable to sell it on your own, maybe you can work out some kind of deal. Pay him the commission up front and have him kick it back to you once you sign the papers.
  4. If ur gonna spend $200 get a Johnny Morris Patriot rod. Can't be beat IMHO in this price point.
  5. I too was a fan of the old style MLF, same boat, electronics, no clue where they were headed.
  6. Lake Toho or Stick Marsh, Fla live Shiners. Set your PB high.
  7. Wow. That looks like the apocalypse!
  8. Best chance is somewhere with florida strain lmb. Although I have caught lots of northern strain over 5lbs. Texas would be my choice because of the diversity. Somewhere like lake fork
  9. I’m starting to realize that my promise 73 is a little tip heavy too and not as light as my Tatula MH or my Dobyns Fury 734. Now considering using the Fury 734 as my jig rod and the promise 73 to a chatterbait, swim jig, paddle tail rod.
  10. Yes I will be using it for the down payment. That sounds like a good program though, I’ve not heard of that. I’m actually going to sell mine here in early to mid July and take the fall off from fishing. If I wait til end of the season up here in Minnesota nobody will take it.
  11. I have decided I am going to go on vacation this summer and I don’t know where to go quite yet. The goal is to catch a new pb largemouth bass. My pb is only five pounds(not even 4.71). I can go anywhere within the United States, so does anyone know of any great places?
  12. Thanks for posting this, killer deal! My step brother isn't a big fisherman but wanted to get a couple combos for him and his son to use on our family trip to Traverse City this year, I sent him the link and he grabbed a medium and medium heavy
  13. Today
  14. Sierra definitely feels more sensitive in my hands, if the difference in price doesn't bother you then definitely go with the Sierra. With Memorial day sales coming up you can probably get the rod at 15-20% off retail
  15. I might also use the rod to flip. I forgot to mention the new Levante perfect pitch as a possibility.
  16. I was just fishing a new lake for the second time yesterday. A couple weeks ago was my first time there and while only there for a hour just to see what the shore access was like, my oldest son got a topwater bite but the fish just missed his lure. I would say the water temp is no more than the lower 50s as of yesterday, and would have been colder then. Now today is 82 degrees which should warm that water up to the upper 50s fairly quickly, making topwater a viable option in the middle of the day as it's not too hot where bass are going deep or taking cover.
  17. Can't go wrong with a Lund. As far as selling your boat, do you need the money for the down payment? I had the dealer I bought my Lund from sell my old boat on consignment for zero commission rather than trade it in. Had I traded it in, I probably would have only got half of what I sold it for.
  18. Thanks fishing_FF no the tallest thing on my boat are the windshields! I did see on the map the lone fish camp ramp but didn't see any real parking for trailers so I did not want to get towed. This Florida deal is brand new to me I'm from Colorado and the 3 or 4 lakes I fished had massive parking lots paved parking lots. Thank you for the info.
  19. Got a box full of Norman N cranks the other day, and had to smile. A blast from the past for me, but maybe not for some of you. I have a bunch of crankbaits. I have no idea how may, or even how many hundred I have. I sorted them out a few years back. I've been on a fruitless quest to trim down my tackle for a long time. I have a magnum size Cabelas bag devoted to cranks. Depending on which boxes I load into it, I can get up to 13 3700 size boxes in the main compartment, one in the back and three 3600 boxes in in sides and front. That's a lot of cranks. After sorting, I came up with over thirty boxes full of different cranks, basically sorted by running depth. So, then I could choose which boxes to load for each differnent trip, making decisions based on where and time of year. The bag, spare boxes, and sacks full of cranks still in their original packaging have been in a tote, in the garage, ever since the day long sorting process. Been fishing plastics almost exclusively, with the occasional spinnerbait and jerkbait. I had decided that this year would feature a return to crankbait fishing, a decision triggered by a new rod I built which turned out to be a just about perfect crank rod. So, more sorting, because I did not want to lug around that huge Cabelas bag, and I received a nice set of Plano bags, one of which holds four 3600 boxes. I thought to myself, self, that should be enough for a three day trip. so, what did I end up with in the new bag? A box of DD22s, a box of spooks and poppers, a box of jerkbaits, and a box of Ns. I had to chuckle when I opened the package I received and found a bunch of new Ns. I made room for them in the newly loaded bag. And I am looking forward to renewing my acquaintance with cranks this year. I've been a fan of the Ns since I read an interveiw with Rick Clunn, in which he stated the deep little N and deep Baby N were his go to crankbaits. I thought, if they're good enough for him, they are certainly good enough for me. My first trip using them was a very good trip. The Deep Little N tore em up that trip, and have continued to produce for me year after year. The Deep Baby N has been a particular favorite of mine. Included in the package were Tiny Ns, and Middle Ns, neither of which I have previously used. I had to do a quick search of an online tackle store, just to see what cranks are out there, and what the going prices are. i have not shopped for cranks for a long time. A roigh estimate suggests crankbait prices average about $10. Current price for the Ns is $6.49. No idea what kind of hooks are on these, but I can tell you they are sticky sharp. I have'nt read anywhere lately somebody saying they tore em up on a Deep Little N. Wonder why that is? They are still in production, which suggests people are still buying them. Have they fallen out of favor? Has all the chatter about the $20+, highly detailed cranks eclipsed their fame as excellent fish catchers? Don't know. I know there was a time when all the Ns and Os and As and Bs, and some others I've likely forgotten, were all lumped together and call by the rather disparaging name "alphabet plugs". Maybe that turned off some folks. I'm looking forward to trying out the new version of the olds favs. And here's a thought for ya. Instead of buying four Megabass, or Jackall, or Luckycraft baits; why don't you shop on the other end of the price range, buy a box of Ns, and go catch a bunch of fish.
  20. I don't blame you at all, any time I run into a good deal at Bass Pro I barely hesitate, knowing that you can't find good rods or reals for cheap prices that often.
  21. Thinking about selling my ALX IKOS promise 73 for a Sierra 734. I have a fury 734 that I use for swim jigs chatterbaits and paddle tails. Was considering using the ALX for that and using the fury 734 for jig fishing. If not I would sell the ALX and buy a 734 Sierra. I fish 15-20lb flouro for jigs.
  22. Thanks for the advice!
  23. no sir, just forgot to lock the trailer jack in the up position 👍 thats it
  24. I would look at what baits the other anglers are using and try something different.
