    Spinning or Baitcaster

    I sold the last of my baitcasters about 15 years ago because I didn't use them very often after braid became prominent. Casting accuracy between spin & baitcaster for me always seemed the same on artis but I could go either way when bouncing bigger baits on the bottom. Braid has made lure chucking on spin a no-brainer; I rarely ever get an angler error knot due to spun up line and I'm throwing artis 95% of the time.

    Pretty rig! All of Coto’s boats are pampered. I doubt this will be on the market much longer.

    Chime in if you carry a SAT Phone or why not

    It's hard to justify the cost of a Sat phone. Epirb & Spot are the perfect combo IMO. I've had a Spot device since the 1st month they were launched. Real Gladesman only need their faith and a bottle of Bibb & Tucker for an overnighter in the backcountry. 😜

    Fan to circulate air under full boat cover

    I've been using a 10" electric Honeywell or Holmes fan to run under my boat covers for years. I let it run continuously on medium speed while plugged into a GFCI outlet. All my hatches stay cracked. The fan usually lasts about 6-8 months before it burns out then I replace it for about $12-15 on Amazon. It helps keep the mold/mildew spots at bay & bilge is bone dry every time I use my boat.

    Choko Guide

    Brian is a great live bait guide down there. He runs a beastly Triton bay boat.

    Choko Guide

    Honson fishes Choko often. Andy runs trips out of cip. We fish many of the same areas & bump into eachother on the water so I assume his clients catch plenty.

    Choko Guide

    There are plenty of guides to choose from but Honson Lau or Bruce Hitchcock would be good choices for Choko if you want to target snook on light tackle. http://mbcforum.com/guides/showproduct.php?product=68 http://www.nofreelunchcharters.com/

    New Whip Shakedown Cruise

    What is that?? 👽 I'm sure you'll be warmly received here: http://www.tribenwater.com/forums/hells-bay-darkside-association/
  12. The site says this device only works on iPhone6 & later models which won’t be very helpful if you don’t want to lug around an iPad on your boat. Definitely a solution for some people though. The $10 Navionics app on my iPhone8 works anywhere, even when I’m way out of cell range. It’s pretty darn accurate too.
  13. I have friends that own 18HPX's with the F115 & F150, both have 8' Powerpoles like mine. We've had them side by side by side in the water. My HPX powered by an F90 & the one with the F115 appear to sit in the water almost identically. The HPX with the F150 on it squats about 1.5" more but still much less squat than a RF with the same motor. RF's are squatty boats. That's just how they are.

    Ft Laud Boat Center Closed

    My HPX was delivered thru Boat Ctr in Ft Laud. I would definitely do business with Eric Konchak again; he is highly knowledgeable & went the extra mile to make sure I was happy. I serviced my motor at Boat Ctr annually until my warranty expired. Great staff & service always on point. I've been using Maximum in Pompano to service my motor for the past 3 years. They are a mile from my home & I've always had good experiences with them. Many people I know use them around town as well. John & Cindy are easy to work with and I refer them business thru my office at Merritt's. Highly recommended. The majority of the available young workforce (or lack thereof) in this country is sad at best. It seems to me that younger people have gotten lazier & dependent on hand-outs (govt or family) every decade for the past 30 years. I've had to work since I was 12 & nothing has been given to me so I don't understand it.
  15. It was nice seeing you and Don on Friday @ Cip. Thanks for coming to visit me!
