  4. Here is a short video of Capt DonH, who will be 82 next week on the tower with the buggy whip and catching a few trout up in the bights of Chokoloskee.... He caught several trout as we slowly moved around the islands up in the bights on a falling tide. dc IMG_8927.MOV

  11. I was up on the Tennessee River yesterday taking pictures of the Sandhill Cranes that stop by up there on their migration every January. I was near the town of Loudon, Tennessee and saw some offices and a factory that smelled like fiberglass. Turns out that it was the Malibu Boat Company. I pointed my birding scope toward the offices and got a good look inside a window at what must have been the design area. One of the new boat designs pinned up on a cork board was labeled, โ€œFuture Pathfinder M 2200 TLS (Too Loud Stereo)โ€. Curious, I focused the scope in on the details of this ne

  13. Iโ€™m sure everything will be fine - Remember when AMF bought Harley-Davidson, when Gulf & Western bought Paramount, when AOL bought Time Warner, when Ford bought Jaguar, ugg. The old Jaguar XKE was one of the most beautiful cars on the road (still is). After Ford bought them, the new Jaguar models bore a striking resemblance to Ford Escorts ๐Ÿ˜• . Any one still own an AMF Harley-Davidson? Nothing quite like a motorcycle designed and built by a company known for its BOWLING BALLS! I do not hesitate to take my Pathfinder out through the inlets and near shore or even off shore in

  14. This was probably a good move for the owners of MBG. We are sitting at the top of a long running economic boom. Lots of indications that things are going to tank in a hurry. Maybe it will run forever, but if I'm sitting on a successful business that is highly sensitive to economic changes, selling that risk to a bigger investor is a brilliant - and brilliantly timed - move. We all love local, but it's hard to fault the local guy for cashing out on the years of work it took to build up a business. Skip and team, congrats on the sale and I hope you got everything you were hoping for

  16. Capt DonH and i decided to hit Chokoloskee before the cold front.....and I have to tell you, the BITE was ON !! We lost count at 35 or so...cookie cutter 15"'rs and a few in the 15-20" range that went home for Dinner. The bite was on from 0800 to 1115 and then, it was over....we caught all our feeeeeeesssshhh including a nice red within 11 miles from Chokoloskee...... The bite was on gulps and DOA white shrimp....literally every cast..... We moved to the front of an island near the gulf and were Chunking fresh lady fish and caught our biggest trout....... We should hav

  17. The 'new' Pathy came with a Powerpole and having had Talons on the Hewes and other boat, I am somewhat unfamiliar with PP operations. Its was frustrating and really slow to deploy. I was working the Stuart Boat Show last weekend and Blake, from PP, stopped by our booth to introduce himself. I was honest and told him my disappointment about speed - well turns out I should have read the manual or watch a video. It's really simple to program the speed of the PP deployment. Blake was helpful, explaining to me how and when he used different deploy speeds in different fishing situations. Sharin

FOLLOW UP.....Here is a video of my daughter in her first match.....She is doing great for the first time with a holster....she practiced about 200 times on the draw...she's handled pistols all the time...but, as you know, this is always a bit intimidating with the amount of fast great shooters.... The RO's were great and were teaching her as she progressed throughout the day....to bad she only has the CZ - Shadow2 (LOL)....only da best for my girl IMG_5987 4.mov Great family activity on a Sunday....from 0800 to 1230 I get to spend time her and the family comes with lawn c

  20. Yes, usually 24 hours or so after it is too cold to breathe. You can pretty much do it up until the 23rd hour easily, that last hour can be challenging though. I learned awhile back that there is no such thing as "too cold" - only "not enough clothes".

  22. Mailbu just recently purchased Tiarra/Pursuit. They have a huge facility in Ft Pierce as well. They must have some serious coin. I hope they take care of the current MBG employees. A few of them have been there a long time and have hung in there through thick and slim.๐Ÿ‘

  23. LOL. It's hilarious how worked up people get when someone posts a boat for sale with a "Call For" price. Dealers do it with new boat ads every day. It's not against the rules here either. Maybe the guy doesn't want a bunch of tire kickers publically negotiating down the price, when they're really not ready to put their money where their mouth is. Maybe the seller knows it's better if you can wait for the right buyer - and if the buyer wants it bad enough, he or she will contact you and make a fair offer. It's a seller's market. Pickin's are slim! New boat orders are on a 4 to 8 month w

  26. My .02 cents. FMT south florida region is 450.00, bought mine less than a year ago. Maybe they've raised prices since then. Totally changed my outlook on everglades and I literally gained 20 years experience for a small price tag in my book. I do an occasional trip to the keys and it works great there as well. Honestly I feel the product is worth northwards of 1,000 if you consider the accuracy and detail thats gone into making it. Being old and retired I've never put the word fishing and saving money in the same sentence. When I go fishing I spend money when I "saved" money I put into Ro

  29. I guess I forgot to let yโ€™all know how the Bobโ€™s plate did. Hole shot is great and I can get on plane with the engine jacked higher. I get no blow out in turns when lightly loaded. If I have coolers, multiple persons, etc. I still get a little blow out at speed in hard corners, but if yโ€™all have ever been in a 1900T, then you know itโ€™s a very trim sensitive hull. Iโ€™m very happy with the results. A friend on here put one on his boat after I did, and his 1806V has gone from a pig to a great performing boat.

  32. You aren't fishing if you aren't ice skating around on the deck of your boat. Spent 0600 this a.m. gingerly navigating the various towels and putting a hurting on some striper before work. Its a good day when you can put 6 fish in the boat and be back in your office by 9:00 a.m., boat washed, covered, and put away!

  35. Relax guys ! Mark Krowka is a superior guide in Florida. This friend was listing the boat to help. Most ads will have a price, but for boats that are nearly new or owned by guides who need their phones clear.. It is perfectly understandable. Only DonHโ€™s and Outlaws boats have seen more fish than this one ! Mod

  36. My buddy's first boat was a (Bayliner) Trophy and a Force engine. We spent a LOT of time vertical jigging off of that thing . . because we had no other choice while waiting for SeaTow. I learned a lot from his mistake about doing some research before buying a brand.

  39. I would never want to disagree with the Moderator as he is so much older and therefore wiser than I am ๐Ÿ™‚ BUT...They USED to do repairs at the (old) factory. Here is a story that has not yet been told here. When I bought my first Pathfinder, a V2000, it had a problem from day one but I was brand new to the Pathfinder series of boats so I didn't recognize that there was a problem for a few months. When turning to starboard at speed, the prop would cavitate. This was back in 2010. I remember taking the boat from Stuart where I bought it, down to Flamingo to get the first 10 hours on the

  40. DavidG, what happened to your post about this holiday? I read it and it was nice! Fin, it has been a rough year on me and my family, not losing jobs but seperations! Covid struck my family in the opposite way. I am hoping that 2021 will be better, hell it can't get any worse! Be safe my friends, enjoy family and friends and soon: this too will pass!
