  1. Ya sure send me your pp info and I’ll get the payment out at some point today.
  2. I'm in for scabelly If I'm not too late
  3. I have an older trident 13 (5-6 years old), 70ish lbs I think and I have no problem throwing it on my 4runner just lifting it.
  4. At times I feel safer in a kayak than I did in my brothers 18ft tin boat, a kayak rolls right over tight chop where a bigger boat will really get rockin. That being said this guy is still insane, I would never take my kayak near rips like that.
  5. He sent a reel to be fixed, and it came back still broken, sounds like not so great service to me regardless of the email issue. I wouldn't have made a thread but just playing the devils advocate.
  6. Nice looking fish I can't wait, but ya I wouldn't call that topwater either unless you are twitching it real slow on the surface
  7. 3rd...
  8. Our roads don’t seem crappier or more unsafe than anywhere else I’ve driven in New England, maybe western ct is bad?
  9. The pedals go back and forth there is no opposite direction unless you flip the whole drive
  10. I can't seem to find a 2019 one either, I've just been using what they have on the website (2018) for ice fishing season.
  11. Does it help much? Seems like it will possibly get in the way of fighting and landing fish too
  12. Wow that’s a lot of tolls, ya eff that. Am I the only one that thinks are roads aren’t that bad? When I drive north through MA,NH, and ME, MA seems like the worst ones to me.
  13. I'd take them at 35 shipped.
  14. Mine just sits outside under the deck and it has been fine for 4 seasons so far, but at the same time I only paid 500 bucks for it so I ain't babying it.
  15. I paddle and fluke fish all summer from an OK Trident 13, it isn't any harder paddling for fluke than any other kind of fishing. Like previously said wind is the biggest issue, I've gotten pretty good paddling one handed to slow me down, or put your legs in the water, or use a heavier jig. I haven't tried a drift sock because it just seems like a hassle, and if the wind is pushing me too fast it's likely it is too windy to be out anyway. Or sometimes the wind pushing against the tide helps you out. Everyone with a hobie seems to think fishing without peddles is so tedious and difficult but you should try it for yourself because I do it and still manage to catch plenty of fish.
  16. How are you all measuring cc's, with a cooking type syringe?
  17. Boo hoo, mass sucks way more to drive through, I have nightmares of the crazies in worcester and boston. Do we know where the tolls will be and how many of them? If they stay west of the River I'm cool with that, selfish of me yes but I just never drive that way.
  18. I mean I could go catch fish floating on an inner tube so nothing is a must, could just pick up the paddle for some reverse.
  19. Ya I have seen the parking lot packed before it’s a popular spot
  20. It kind of does break the bank but the astral v-eight is my favorite so far, very light weight and has lots of ventilation. Before that I had a kokatat bahia tour which felt much bulkier.
  21. I see 15-18ft boats launching there all the time, just don't go at dead low I hit bottom with the kayak sometimes.
  22. “Proper” bass gear is subjective
  23. It doesn’t need to be balanced. Balance doesn’t mean a thing when working a lure or fighting a fish.
  24. Dude 1-2 minutes is way too long you should have that fish in in under 30 seconds or it’s gonna die
  25. How balanced is your setup with a plug on the other end?
