Re: Decided to go finesse

You know, all of my fishing life, I used to switch lures, over and over, until I found something that they liked.

I did NOT, however, switch techniques or sizes so much.

I have so much to learn, and so little time to learn it.

Re: Decided to go finesse

Wait...don't stop there. I want to see one of the "aggravating" lures. This Summer I've gone from only occasional catches....to catching more than usual (July)..back to only occasional catches. Just above, I posted an article gleaned from another fishing site (BBC). The article contends that fish DO...

If you haven't caught a bonefish...watch this tape.

I skipped about ten minutes in the middle of it. It would wear you out!

Re: Hydrofoil

As usual, we disagree on Foils vs Tabs. Since you do it Full Time and I am just a User... As far a loss of speed...of course the tabs contact the water. I said... No Appreciable Loss of Speed. My experience with the one hydrofoil that I had was a loss of 2 or 3 mph. Perhaps the setup wasn't ideal, b...

Re: Hydrofoil

Let's talk about the balancing and stabilizing effect of tabs or foils. Both/either definitely help the boat, especially if it has porpoising problems. A hydrofoil is a single "pedestal" on which the boat is riding when moving quickly. Tabs (any tabs) are TWO "pedestals" on which the boat is riding ...

Re: Hydrofoil

I've had both, a foil and 3 sets of Smart Tabs, on 3 different boats. Smart Tabs were far better, IMHO. As far as drilling holes, I'd rather drill into my boat (which can be patched if ever necessary,) than into my motor. With Tabs (any Tabs, really)... No more porpoising; far better planing at very...

Re: STARCRAFT SERIAL NUMBERS

Chuck, I think that the original poster was from Canada. I blew up his picture of the boat that was posted earlier in this thread. His boat does not have the STATE letters that normally show up in US registrations, and the sign behind his boat says Candian Tire ( i think). Hence, unless you are in C...

For you beard guys..from the Smithsonian today

"
In 1698, Peter the Great imposed a beard tax in an effort to westernize Russian nobility. Records indicate that Henry VIII taxed beards in 16th-century England, too."

Re: Balding, perhaps there is hope....

Sorry, Jim. It would take a LOT more than hair for any of us to look like that!

Besides, you'd have to spend valuable boating time beating off the women.

FL underwater pier camera

This is a live underwater camera at the end of a fishing pier in Florida. It will be taken down in the next few days due to the hurricane. It should be put back up after the storm, though.

ENJOY

Have you been following the Swamp Runner Bering sea adventures?

These guys just finished 2000 miles in open boats through the Canadian/Bering sea areas.
