Bass Tracker TX17 Conversion

Yeah, you are probably right. I imagine with it all welded it will be quite stronger by default. The boat looks great and I think you will be real happy with it when your done. That 70hp should push that thing great. Doea it have tilt/trim? I dont have but a 50hp on mine and with me and my dog loade...

Bass Tracker TX17 Conversion

Thanks for the kind words Knot. Im glad you were able to pull some ideas off of my build and tweak them for your build. There were several things I would have done different if I had to do it over again, but it looks like you have done the tweaking it needed. I think the front storage is a great ide...

Flounder, Redfish and Ducks!!

This was my last weekend to chase flatties as I will be out of town this week and duck season starts after Thanksgiving. I had plans on hitting the water both Fri and Sat night but mother nature changed my mind. I had been seeing quite a few redfish around my last several floundering trips so about ...

"The Twins"

Nice report! I must head south and try this some day. Can you catch these the conventional way? You know...with a rod and reel? 10-4 on catching them on rod and reel. It takes some practice though, they bite very soft and very slow. They are hard to hook if they are bicatch because of the way they ...

"The Twins"

We decided to try a new area out Sat night and was in the water at about 7ish. We were graciously met with a pretty stout ESE wind which would end up working in our favor a little. It had most of the areas I was interested in looking at blown out but there was plenty of real estate where we could ge...

Toolbox Center Console

Upon request I am going to give a quick rundown on the building of my "Toolbox" Center Console. The concept of my tin build was to make a "flats style" boat to chase inshore fish on the flats and in the shallows. The entire time I was in the process of building my boat the console was always in the ...

Homemade Consoles

I am in the wood door business so I have pretty much a unlimited supply of Mahogany. The exact species is Cedro Arana but its just a type of Mahogany.

Flounder giggin

Unlike Redfish, kings, spanish and several other species around here, the larger flounder do not seem to have the higher merc levels and the more fishy taste. A large flounder for this area is 21-22" and up. I have not personaly caught or gigged a flounder over about 22" but have seen many well over...

Flounder giggin

Just curious, but is the term "giggin" a local term for spearing ?? All those fish seem to have been taken with a 3 or 4 prong spear. That tactic would get you a big fine up here in NJ waters, so I'm really curious if the fish stock down your way is that plentiful to be able to support a no release...

Flounder giggin

Got my floundering set up on my tin done last week and took her out Sat night. Weather was great, about 65 degrees and not a whisper of wind. Didnt take long to find some clear water and the fish were everywhere. The flounder are making there run at this time of the year hear and if the conditions a...
