Handmade early French flintlock muzzleloader, circa 1727

Great build! I'm not that talented to build one from scratch, but my first FL was a TC Hawken kit, turned out pretty nice and shot well.

Can a simple Block of Wood catch fish?

I remember watching a fishing program years ago where they took a miniature plastic kitchen sink off of a plaque, ran a wire through it, and put a treble hook on, they managed to catch a good sized pike on "the kitchen sink". I think it was at Gods Lake in Manitoba, and possibly Gadabout Gaddis, but...

soft plastic lure fiddling

It was either walleye central or ice shanty, those are the only 2 fishing sites I'm on.

Interesting, I also just read about modifying plastics on another site, seems like there's no end as to how you can play with them.

How do you screw/mount things to aluminum (such as seat base)?

I did the same thing, I cut just a big enough access slot to be able to install aluminum angle underneath the bench seat, then made a plate to cover the hole, actually doesn't look bad if done right.

New old 1648

That hull would be excellent for duck hunting and fishing. If you want a project, and the majority of the hull is in good shape, and you have the skills to do some of the work, IMO it would be worth the effort. I would do just the basics first, fix the transom, fix the ribs and any other damage, and...

Junkyard 14' Mirrocraft brought back from the dead.

Nice job, I caught a lot of fish out of a Mirrocraft like that and always considered it to be a good boat, never leaked a drop of water either.

Need a new spinning reel

For what you are describing check out the Shimano Sienna 500FD, pretty good reel for the price.

Now THAT is a tin boat!

Love that type of boat. Little different, but the LCM's that I ran were my absolute favorites, just something about them! I remember when I qualified on one, I had to position it between a fleet ballistic missile sub and the ship and was sure hoping I wouldn't hit the sub and damage it! :roll: #-o :...

what is this?

The stock threw me off, I remember seeing those Mossberg's with the high rib and would have guessed that had it not been for the stock. I purchased a Mossberg heavy duck gun when those were available, the model may have been a 500 ALMR, but not sure. It had a designated steel shot barrel on it witho...

New member, about to buy a Grizzly 1648

I have a 1648 Tracker Grizzly Blind Duck with a 40/30 Yamaha tiller jet on it. Mine has a gun box on the port side and a small dry box on the starboard, I was surprised at how much stuff I could fit in that gun box! :lol: So far no complaints and I love the TRAC system that is on them, you can easil...
