Re: EPRIB or PLB?

What I paid for mine when it was time to replace the battery. Of course pretty darn important to make sure it is waterproof going back together... EPIRB was about $270 for similar battery service.

Re: Tarpon Bait

While keeping them in the water is clearly best, tarpon under 40” to the fork “can” be legally removed from the water for a photo, measurement or scientific testing. I’m not sure what the reasoning behind that is other than to allow those who rarely see a tarpon much less catch one to photo it or to...

Re: WTB: A large manly conventional reel

I'm running a Penn Fathom 20 with star drag on my bottom rods(30# of drag, 5.5:1 ratio) and 100# Powerpro/80# Fluro leader. If I can't stop whats on the other end with that (assuming our local Big Bend small boat offshore scene) I want it to break off fast so I can get back to fishing for something ...

Re: Steinhatchee 06/20 and 6/25

SK she thinks a 36’ Yellowfin is just right... I can’t pay for the gas in those :o I’m thinking something in the 24’ range maybe a KW 239 or KW 244. I like the looks of the Everglade 253 as well. Lots of research and waiting out the CV19 stuff before I jump into that end of the pool. Of course she t...

Steinhatchee 06/20 and 6/25

Had a chance to go with a friend on 6/20 aka Saturday before father's day and 1st Saturday of scallop season... typically I avoid the coast on scallop season weekends but figured we’d be offshore before most scallopers woke up... reality was “what a zoo”. Had I been by myself I’d would have turned a...

Re: Prop repair(stainless)

Most of the shops have a regular weekly pickup/drop-off, I believe the link below is the Tampa prop shop that everyone is referencing. I want to say the shop pickup day in the area is Tuesday or Wed but been a while since I needed to send one down so... I'm sure you could call a shop and ask for the...

Re: minn Kota Talon

8' on my boat, if I'm deeper than that I use my iPilot spot lock. If purchasing today I would consider the 10' if there wasn't too much difference in price because why not, IIRC 8' was all they had when I got mine :)
