Re: Lanark this Saturday

Yes, the big "sock" of dredged material is still there and will be for a while per Mike the Dockmaster. So Parking is way worse than before.

Re: Lanark this Saturday

I don't fish kill tournaments so I don't have a dog in this deal but Lanark this Saturday afternoon seems like not the best idea. I spend a lot of time down there and I won't even go there on Saturday. It's private property, membership required. There won't be one square inch of space to park even i...

Re: Where to scallop this summer

Hopefully far away from where I'm fishing. lol

Sorry.....I'm just a crusty old guy that wishes he could fish in peace and load up at the ramp without being in the middle of a poop show.

When I am lucky enough to have that Grandkid I'll be right out there with you.

Re: Plotter recommendation $500-1,000

I agree with SG. (as usual) The FMT chip is great for inshore, like right along the coast. Perfect for St. Marks and all points South. It's somewhat useless for anything more than a mile offshore. For that, the Navionics chip is much more useful with shading and depth contour lines. I have an Elite ...

Re: Which maps are best

The Hook 7 barely has the processor speed to run the Navionics Plus maps, but luckily they are great maps and will serve you well. FMT is great but you have to have a larger screen and more power to run it.

Re: Jon boat or Gheenoe for flats

Redbelly what kind of Action Craft do you have?

I've had 3 of them over the years. Currently in a 1998 1820 SE with a new Yamaha 115 SHO. The hull is 2 owner, garage kept since day one and in beautiful shape for a 23 year old boat. Frankly, it's bilge is cleaner than my nearly new Pathfinder. lol

Re: Jon boat or Gheenoe for flats

Actually, the sweet spot is an Aluminum mud-motor boat, a Gheenoe LT-25, a nice 17 or 18' flats skiff, and a fancy bay boat in all stored in a big garage.

Now you have it covered. :)

Re: Jon boat or Gheenoe for flats

I have had both and fished them extensively at SM. The only Gheenoe to consider is a Low Tide 25 model, all the others are too small and tippy. I loved my LT-25 with a tiller 25 Yamaha. She was fast and fun, as quiet as a whisper and I caught a TON of fish out of her. Basically a one-person boat, 2 ...

Re: Lures -

I have found that a treble hook with one hook cut off is the sweet spot of ease of release vs hook-up ratio. It's that third hook that gets in the fish's jaw and then you can't back it out that's the problem for me. The single hook deal works on topwater if all you want is to see the strike....again...

Re: New boat question

Keep the G3 and buy another 22 or 24 Pathfinder. You can't make one boat do it all.....it's been tried. :hammer:

Re: what's your Favorite boat food?

Extra Sausage biscuit left over from Hardee's breakfast and a Ham Lunchable are my just about every time lunch. I have room for a grill but doubt I would ever take the time to use it on a fishing trip. I usually spend 10 minutes eating and thinking about where to go next. (Hopefully, a spot that Tai...

When it warms up in the afternoon and the tide is high, try the flats on the bay side of the island for Trout and /or Reds. A trip to SGI in May or October wil...
