  1. North Captiva, Bokeelia, Pineland recomendations

    Plus... Lazy Flamingo will cook what you catch, and add a side for $8.50, or a least that's what it used to be. North Cap. has a place called Barnacle's good food, nice atmosphere. As far as bait.....Pineland Marina would be closest. Not sure if there is anything on N. Cap. or not that sells bait. Several marinas on Sanibel south of where you are staying that may sell bait don't know. Here is a site I stumbled on that has a little info about the area. http://www.northcaptiva.net/IslandDining.htm
  2. 50 Amp Breaker in Console

    That's what I thought it was for.......but the trolling motor operates with the breaker open or closed. That's what was confusing.
  3. Have a 2015 Hewes Redfisher 18, love the boat we fish it every week if possible. Yamaha F115, Power Pole, trolling motor. My question is what does the 50 amp breaker in the console control? I have 3 batteries in the console, one house two trolling. I thought it might be a disconnect for the trolling motor batteries, but doesn't seem to matter it its open or shut trolling motor still operates. Doesn't seem to effect anything one way or the other. Usually run the battery switch on 1. Im sure its an easy answer, I just cant figure it out. Looked at the wiring diagram and it shows a battery switch don't see a breaker wired in. Thanks in advance Randy
  4. Today in MBG History!

    Congrats Skip, have owned 2 Cobias, 256, and a 277 currently. Liked the Maverick Brand so when I wanted a Flats boat, I bought an 18 Redfisher. great skiff. Boat Co.'s or any company aren't just about boats, they are about people. You guys all ways try to help out, great company to work with.
  5. Snook

    Their are concerns for those Snook that do make it through this cold snap. The lower water temps weaken their immune systems and makes the fish more susceptible to bacteria and infections. The next couple of weeks will tell the story. Hopefully a good one for our fisheries.

    Thanks Skip
  8. 277 Cobia Bridge Clearance

    Can anyone tell me what the bridge clearance on a 277 would be? Is it the same as the 256. I have some tight bridges to go under in Cape Coral.
