  1. we ran into the same thing out fishing ,I had boaters come up behind me and try to push me out of the way, all I do is slow down and see if they can pick up a lead core in the prop,And I have also had sail boat buzz me in the channel thinking because they are under sail they own the water well (I think you can not run under sail in the channel and over take a boat) I may be wrong but I would bet if he hits me he will have more then a boat to pay for ,it may also be a a-- kicken he will have to deal with.


  2. Just wondering if anyone works for a tool and die company or can turn a metal pin for a fly vise? I would be willing to work something out with a little bartering for tackle if they like,:thumb: just thought I would ask ,I can't find what I am looking for on the net.



  3. I wish I had a panther mount ,but I have the drop arm style and there is play in it up and down has very little but the side to side is what I'm worried about the springs are good but it still moves around, and I don't want to see it bouncing down the road.(Not a good thing)

    I thought about strapping it in place but there is no real good spot to lock it in.


  4. Thanks Don

    That's what I was thinking but wanted to make sure that I wasn't nuts by not leaving it on the boat. I will have enough on my mind with a fully loaded boat and truck with three kids to boot.

    I will post if I can while in ludington on how the fishing is going.


  5. Need your input , I am leaving for ludington this weekend to spend a week up there with family and friends, I am taking my 19 foot star craft (glass) and it has a kicker motor bracket on back. ( a good heavy one) Question is it safe to put my 9.9 on it for the 100 mile trip??? or best to make room in the truck box?? I have ran it on there from my house to the lake (3 mile ) but never any father. Or are these things make to take a bouncing and not to worry about it?

    Thanks for the input.


  6. Can any one tell me if you can fit 250 copper on a daiwa sealine 47H ?

    I'm thinking a penn 209 and 210 is too small also. Just have extra's sitting around and would like to add copper to my line up.



  7. I would like to Thank All of the great bunch of fisherman that showed up today and fished the WMFL tournament out of Holland ,I took in a lot of info On how the new uv spoon did with a a lot of different anglers using them in all different types of waters and depths.I will take this info and hope to keep on making new and better spoons.

    A big Thanks go's out to Ken (nailer) for having me aboard his boat, I had a great time and helped put some nice fish in the box, even though he had use doing all the copper work, I learned a lot .Thanks again.

    Thanks for making Big Lake Lures welcome and I really hope I can do it again next year.

    IF you have to order any parts try Iboat .com they have great prices on there parts.

    When the vr went out on my johnson 150 it was a pc of cake to fix the bad thing is the fly wheel has to come off to do so. It could be your stater, that is what dose the charging. But I would pull the battery and see if you have a bad cell in it first. Tach will not drain the battery if the key is off. something has to be left on to drain the battery. Or its not charging.
