    Garmin depth finder issues

    Looks like the 94? Reduce your noise and it should help out considerably!

    My boat keeps stealing my hats

    Love my Redfisher 18 but come on now, stop stealing my hats! Went out yesterday and again, blown overboard. Without a chin strap I'm getting tired of purchasing new hats! How many hats have you lost to your boat? Just curious....

    R tires vs D tires; mixed on trailer

    I had a flat the other day and consequently needed to replace the tire. I'm running D14's on the trailer right now, but the replacement is an R14. Is it bad to mix the Rs and Ds on the trailer at the same time? I usually travel less than 20 miles to launch (on average less than 1 mile). Should I take it back and have them change it out to a D? Thank you

    Trolling motor shaft length for 18’ Hewes

    Ahhhhh, I wouldn't go with a 48! I have the 54" and it's good!

    Not a good sign

    They sure do! Sadly $$$ talks and they have puppets in high places!

    Not a good sign

    I wish we could limit the number of folks moving to our state but alas, "it's a free country"! I'm frustrated as well, but trust me, commercial folks are not taking Redfish, Snook, or Trout either. I plan on driving North to Hernando to at least try to bring home a Red. Miss eating Snook and Red. Not much for Trout.

    Rust Remover

    I’m getting these rust “rings” and would like to know what everyone is using to remove it? Wire brush? Toothbrush? Chemicals? Thanks! Tight lines!

    Gandy Ramp

    Stand down! It was discussed last night at the County Commission meeting and thrown out. They WILL NOT lock up the boat ramps.
