    RF 18 getting water in bilge

    have you checked the hose from the live bait well that exits the transom? mine was broken and darn thing leaked into bilge all the time. As always when you find it, will be the last thing you check. LOL

    An addition to your boat tools

    Ouch. had a little Ladyfish go crazy on me one morning. Drove the boat home with left hand switching between wheel and throttle. My bride refused to assist getting two sets of sharp treble hooks out of my right hand, though she was kind enough to drive me to ER. A couple shots of Lidocane, a big pair of rusty side cutters, a tetanus shot and an invoice. Probably a good idea to put a set of real wire cutters on board. I didn't get tetanus or a flesh eating microbe.. though my wife suggests I already have a brain disease (something about fishing).

    Spinning or Baitcaster

    I think it depends on what you are most comfortable with. I am most comfortable with spinning so 90% of the time that's what I toss. Friends who grew up freshwater bass fishing can very accurately and with great distance use a bait caster...

    140 Suzuki on 17 MA

    different boat (had RF 18) however went thru same thought process. Yammy V about 350? lbs vs 140 Suzuki about 405lbs. Weight didn't impact squat (RFs squat anyway). Marcus put me in a 3 blade and jumped on plane. I would buy 140 again. 2X - change the internal anodes every 100 hours or annually, whichever sooner.

    Suzuki 140 vs 150

    had DF 140 on Redfish Lappy. just 50lbs more than old Yammy 115V. Propped right jumped on plane. Not a speed demon, but hole shot important to me. Sips gas. Change the internal anodes every 100 hours, they are really small and do their job. The 150 is a completely different engine, i have no experience with it.

    Management system for your tackle??

    my 'solutions' have changed year after year.. currently I keep lots of plastic boxes (like we all do, same as in photo yes Dear posted). Bought small tool bags at Harbor Frieght ( maybe $7 each). Each bag hold about 6 boxes in the sideways vertical position, not stacked, so I can see label on side of each box. Just grab the bags I need that day.

    I-Pilot remote magical fix

    with old style (flat battery) there is a known issue. the little tab in the battery compartment is not stiff enough to maintain contact. Simple solution: fold a tiny piece of paper, piece of business card, etc and put under the tab. That will keep it in contact. New version does not use same battery and does not have problem.

    Near shore Port Canaveral

    quick update (July 10) Kings and tarpon on the beach. Poggies in the bite this morning and where there is bait, predators will follow.

    is this the NEW style remote or the old style with the flat battery?
