  1. Luck-E-Strike Black Rubber Worm curl tail 4inch (Walley World $2.00) Swim it on top the Bass and Pickerel attack it . I fish them in shallow , weedy ,Lily Pads
  2. I made a clam rake and bought a clam license and was planning on digging clams behind IBSP while fishing for stripers. Covid-19 shut everything down and my plans.
  3. You are suffering from the "NOT ENOUGH TACKLE VIRUS". Little subliminal voices from fishing videos on Youtube are telling you need this brand artificial bait, rigs, rods, reels etc. "Resistance Is Futile" quit your job and Bruise the credit card until they come and take you away.
  4. I have a 5' Ugly Stik that I use for Trout and Pan Fish. I have a 6"6" rod also. I use both from the Kayak. But I use the 5'most of the time. A shorter rod is much easier to fish with. I also have 6' bait casters when I'm throwing heavier bass jigs or trolling. The 6'6" is great for when I'm swimming a worm on top water surface. All my rods are Ugly Stiks. I know they are not the best, but I have had them a long time.
  5. I have a ginso knife I use it for both surf and kayak fishing. I made a leather sheath made from old leather welding gloves and glued together with Plumbing Goop. Does not rust and the simple sheath glued together with goop does not come apart. If I loose it no big deal.
  6. I'll bet that they are not really Pennsylvania residents. Probably from Lakewood. When I lived in Jackson,NJ I would see cars or trucks with out of state tags coming from Lakewood,NJ with local car dealer identification decals on the back. They use addresses for sale in other states. I once was fishing a local lake in Jackson,NJ near Lakewood and there was another car in the parking lot with Pa. Tags. When I get to the spot I like to fish at there were three adults( NO Visible License)and a couple of kids fishing.I just said hello and started fishing next to them. About a half hour latter a Conservation Officer is next to me and asks me to give him my license which was visible (back of hat). He then asked the other group adults for their licenses (they had none) and then he asks for driver license they had none and refused to acknowledge that they owned the car. He confiscates their fishing tackle plus cooler which had no value. They call their local Community Organizer who shows up later with a flat bed and hauls the car away, and they walk home. If we normal citizens with proper I.D. and in state registration for vehicle would do this we would get run up the flag pole.
  7. I have swim fins that I use for bodyboarding. I bring them with me when I'm in the Bay, Ocean or the Manasquan Reservoir.
  8. I remember years back a bass pro tournament contender was using his kids snoopy rod and closed face reel for under the docks.
  9. Where are you getting the valve stem from? I need the short small ones for small turf tires that I'm using. Actually they work pretty good deflated on sand, but I sometimes go distances on hard surfaces.
  10. Go to west marine web site and look up wire support and view the selection and prices.
  11. Try using schedule 80 PVC
  12. I used the same ammo box from Dick's and ran my two wires through a grommet . The box sits below deck and will not be exposed to water. The battery that I used is a sealed battery.The terminal block is a nice idea if using multiple applications (lights, water pump, aerator and fish finder) Yes the grommet is sealed. The ammo box does have a rubber gasket in the lid.
  13. Has there ever been a comparison of shooting through the bottom of the Kayak or over the side clean through the water. Is the clarity different on the screen?
  14. My brother-in-law and I do float downs on the Delaware and he once said,"The less is better". It is also good advice for surf launches.
