  1. My friend is on the second seat, first one he cut down to reduce the center of gravity 1” in the front 3 inches off the back. ( actually there is an old thread here somewhere of the invetnter of this solution) he had fished it all over the Raritan and the Manasquan river and never tipped it. The latest seat he’s had in for a year without cutting it down and says it really isn’t that tippy either but it is personal preference

  4. Got out today way in the back a few spots up the Mullica. drowned a few worms and had some nibbles. felt good to get out
  5. I redid a1974 mako 19. it was a great project with my nephew we pulled the tank which means pulling the console and the tank wasn’t that bad.but the plumbing for it was. my floor was ok but i beefed up the transom
  6. Making my annual trek to Sanibel in a little over a month or so. i was wondering if anyone has rented a kayak for fishing there before? would love to get a Hobie peddle yak or at least something set up for fishing thanks
  7. The west coast i believe south of Sarasota has a ban on keeping fish due to the red tide issue last year. ive been going to Sanibel in that area for the last five years right around Easter for a week. fishing has been great, snook, sea trout, jacks, occasional tarpon and a small amount of other fish
  8. Definitely bring some top water if you like videos, checkout skinners last two and Elias had a few from down there. i just got a few spooks and some gold spoons also some rubber shrimp also may some colt sniper type jigs im heading down to Islamorada myself to visit my sister so please let me know how you make out down there... good luck
  9. I’ve had a Garmin Echomap 73DV for four years now in my boat and fish mostly in the bay and i really like it has great features like maps and navaids and the screen in the perfect size and different flavors of sonar including downvu and clearvu has the ability to save quite a few tracks (i haven’t maxed mine out yet) prices are reasonable
  10. I don’t know that area for fishing specifically but you can’t go wrong with live shrimp early AM just past the breakers
  11. Thanks Captain, i appreciate all the responses. I’m getting there sometime this winter. Just need to allocate the funds and really figure what i need
  12. In your setup, what batteries are you using? Seems to be different remote options are there? What thrust would i need for a 22’ CC weighing about ~ 3500 lbs.? ive also seen conflicting info about shaft length. From mounting point on my bow to the waterline is 43”. What size shaft will be required?. If i mount it on the MinnKota bracket does it make a difference? thanks, jim
  13. What do you have it on?
  14. I have a bunch of questions for you should i post them all here?
