Re: Does your boat have a name?

It is a long story and a tribute to my deceased brother. We call my boat the "PFV Whoopass".

Re: Trolling Motor Power issue

I may be misunderstanding but did you say you plugged the unit into a receptacle using a drop cord at home? I may just be misinterpreting but the motor should be 24 vdc and the outlet is 120 vac. If you did this you probably have toast for windings. If not switches, fuses and corrosion are the bigge...

Re: Good areas for a novice "captain"

I have been fishing the St.Marks area for years. Most of that time was either with a guide or rental boat. My point being I am not an expert at navigating the area either. I put in at the fort ramp in November and there were no issues at all. Got in the channel and headed towards the lighthouse. The...

Re: North Ga Brown Trout

Minnows, worms,rooster tails, corn, power bait (sort of an artificial salmon egg), salmon eggs. Be aware some streams are artificial only. The larger streams and rivers hold the browns. Chattahoochee and Toccoa rivers as well as Lake Burton are the best bet for browns or other trout. An occasional b...

Re: 30.06, .270 & .243 Rifle Ammo **FOR SALE**

I tend to agree with "ugadawg" that ain't no bargain. However I also believe the market will dictate the price in a free economy.If you don't want them don't buy them. I certainly would not in this case. Any item is worth what someone is willing to pay. I see the point in this being differ...

Re: Shield's ramp

Not an expert with any of these ramps but I launched at the Fort in November with no issues at all. I too thought I would be solo but had an old time fishing buddy join me at the last minute so he drove the truck out and parked. Long line up/haul out shot in front of ramp, wide ramp, docks, lots of ...

Re: what's your Favorite boat food?

Subway samitch or homemade samitch (turkey/cheese). Lance peanut butter/cheese crackers (about a dozen packs onboard). Deer/beef jerky. Ice cold adult beverages (cold beer) and water. That pretty much covers the major food groups.

Re: Wear your PFD!!!

Wow great advise from a real world event. I am guilty of all the PFD infractions mentioned at times. I have started wearing and inflatable vest a lot more especially when alone. Nice public service message.

Re: Suzuki vs. Yamaha

My boat has a Yamaha 200 SHO. Quiet, easy start, performance, easy routine PM/repairs, pretty good fuel economy for a 200 outboard. No complaints. I hear a lot of good stuff about Suzuki too.

Re: New trick for grouper

If you were fishing for taste you hit a pretty darn good trifecta. I like almost any kind of fish but grouper, flounder and snapper are right up there with my favorites. Nice catch.
