  2. New Mercury 4 strokes 175, 200 and 225

    Wonder how the exclusive Yamaha manufacturers like MBG, Grady, Contender, etc... are going to get through this shortage. I've heard grumblings of the shortage for awhile but now I know (second hand info so take this for what it's worth) of a Contender 32 purchaser who was given his deposit back.
  3. Permits for the ENP...

    This is looking like its going to be a case in which the molasses-like pace of Federal buerocracy is going to work in our favor. I inquired when renewing my annual entrance & ramp pass last month (after I had my credit card and permits in-hand) and I got the shoulder shrug and eye roll from ranger.
  4. Has anyone seen this model hewes ?

    If you are truly seeking the truth about your boat then this is it... The gentlemen quoted in the post above, Skip, just celebrated his 25th anniversary as an employee with MBC.
  5. I did the same thing a couple weeks ago after fishing and then thought about summer rains. It's gonna be a disaster back there.

  7. Clear fly lines

    I'll save you some money: Monic clear is a nightmare to deal with.
  8. Clear fly lines

    I've been using Cortland liquid crystal for the last year and I really like it. I had major issues with 11 and 12wt Airflo Ridge Clear (entire length is clear) a couple years ago, manufacturing issue that I'm sure has been resolved, switched to the Cortland and never went back. The only down side I see to the Cortland is once the water gets a little cold (below 75) it coils alot.

    Taking a lesson, especially at this stage in the game before developing bad habits, will be money very well spent.
  10. Salt Deposits Or?

    May be road grime if it's only on the front portion of the hull. May want to try a clay bar, they work amazing getting embedded grime out of paint on cars. You just have to put a coat of wax on immediately afterwards. This is what I use on our vehicles. https://www.amazon.com/Chemical-Guys-CLY_113-Synthetic-Lubricant/dp/B0186RUIGO/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1514771870&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=clay+bar+kits&psc=1

    Accuracy is waaaay more important than distance. Especially in the marshes where you'll be in tannin stained water most of the year except winter. Sometimes you'll need to drop it right on them, especially if they're eating since their face will be buried in the mud. The good thing is the fish (I'm speaking of Jacksonville to Charleston redfish) are a lot less spooky than reds in super clear water so unless you line them you can usually get more than one shot at them. Concentrate on accuracy at all times, the distance will come with casting time on the water, or in the back yard.

    An 8wt is what's on the link you posted, a 9wt would be fine as well. I agree with Don, unless your gift card will cover the entire combo. The TFO BVK is the best fly rod under $500 ever made in my, and many others opinion. You can cast the smallest trout flies with a 12wt, the tricky part is large flies with smaller rods, lighter line. Keep in mind- you're casting the line, not the fly.
  13. GPS blowing fuses

    If your talking about an in-line fuse on the 12V power wire going to the unit than that's probably the power to the unit blowing the fuse and not the Garmin unit blowing the fuse. Check the entire length of the 12V power wire, if possible, for any chafing causing a short. If not give them a call, they have great customer service at Garmin with actual humans answering the phone, it's weird.
  14. 18MA VS 18 EGRET

    As the resident bay boat hater of this fine group of gentlemen and sometimes critic of the MBC I really don't have a dog in this fight but I don't think that's really a fair comparison. Just the sheer number of Pathfinders produced compared to Egrets (gotta be like 100:1) invalidates the comparison. I'm not giving Pathfinder a pass for the rare mess-up in a $70K-$110K Bay Boat (that's hard for me to even type) but it's not apples to apples either.
  15. 18MA VS 18 EGRET

    I don't spend hardly any time in big boats like these but as with anything the personal value is the key. If the Egret is worth the extra coin to you, you won't be disappointed I can assure you of that. I helped my neighbor do some rigging work on a Egret 2011/250 ProXS and I got a really good look at it, under the shiny parts, for a couple hours. The fit and finish of the boat was at such a high level it was almost ridiculous, like a waste of time but in a good way, if that makes any sense.
