Texas Eye jig heads

I started to put this in the fishing report thread, but decided this might be worth its own thread. Grass remained thick this weekend and traditional jig heads tend to snag a lot of grass. Ive been using a Texas eye jig head to try and mitigate the grass. It does a great job of staying weedless (wor...

Re: Personal Fishing report Oct 9, 2021

We went out Sunday and fished east flats. Stayed in 3-8' because the wind was cranking and I was a bit worried about the low tide sneaking up on me. Didn't bring a drift sock and really regretted that as we were drifting fast. Decided to try live shrimp (free line and popping) and caught a ton of ca...

Re: Kayak for bad back - recommendations

Second the Harry Smith recommendation. I have a FeelFree Lure 13.5 that is about as comfortable/stable of a kayak as they make. One of the major features is the seat and you can adjust it easily while in the kayak. That being said, there are a lot of tradeoffs for comfort and stability. It is a barg...

Re: Back pain doctor/medical center in Tallahassee?

Can't recommend a back doctor, but Dr. Gene Jenkins (Chiropractor) has done wonders for me. Very good friend of mine was scheduled for a back surgery that would have put him out of work for 6 months for recovery. Went to a chiropractor, discovered his hips were out of alignment and within two adjust...

Re: Replacement Swingback cooler options

They're less expensive. The Wise is about 2/3 the price of the Todd.

Replacement Swingback cooler options

I have a 70qt Todd Swingback cooler that needs replacing (the lid hardware rusted out). Finding the Todd cooler in stock it pretty tough, but I'm finding lots of Wise 70qt coolers that appear to be identical. Has anyone replaced a Todd with a Wise? Is there a significant drop in quality? Sent from m...

Re: First time, need some advice

+1 on Sea Tow Picked up a pontoon boat about a year ago to cruise the river and had it checked out. Got the thumbs up from the mechanic and brought the family down the river. Made it to about marker 51 in the river and she died. Couldn't get her going again and luckily had purchased sea tow about a ...

Re: NFGFC August Tournament: Rock Landing

Apologies, I missed the thread with the forms. Might be a good idea to sticky that one to the top for the slow folks such as myself. ;-) Also, if you create an event on the FB page people can show interest (e.g. click interested or going, which will show up on their feeds for other people to see) an...

Re: NFGFC August Tournament: Rock Landing

Are there going to be details for this and upcoming tournaments posted anywhere? I've checked the FB page but can't find anything.

Re: ST George Island--places to eat

Start off with some drinks and live music at Tamara's if they've got someone playing, then to the owl for dinner, and finish the night at Oyster City.

I've not been impressed by Blue Parrot the last few times I've gone.

Re: Trim Tabs: Self-Leveling vs Electric

Slightly over idle and it wanders just slightly. Anything more than that and it handles wonderfully. No trouble getting on plane, no porpoising, very dry ride. I like to put in at Shields and occasionally do a river ride with the family, so low speed is common. It's a Century 1701. It's a v-hull, so...

Re: Trim Tabs: Self-Leveling vs Electric

Juan - I do have an anode and it is centered and in good shape. The boat wanders left and right equally. Nole.. a four blade prop provides more thrust and promotes a smoother cruise speed. I believe that’s where FWC was hinting at. Have you tried to redistribute your weight in the vessel? Sent from ...

Re: Trim Tabs: Self-Leveling vs Electric

Trimming up on the motor seems to make things worse. Can't imagine how a four-blade would make that much of a difference over a three blade, but I may try it down the road. The purpose of this thread is about the trim tabs. When you say ehh, is that meaning you don't think it will work? I've looked ...
