  1. Thanks for this! Can’t not order one at that price.
  2. Awesome, thank you!
  3. Great idea and simple! What are you using to mark them? Nail polish?
  4. Are they doing this in 2019?
  5. Can a bucktail with trailer on (otter tail or twisty worm) fit in the 4x4 bag?
  6. Manually close the bail. I had wind knots constantly until I learned that.
  7. I'm also new to kayaking and appreciate all the information in this thread. Do you folks typically get the kayak in the water ready to launch first, then put on the drysuit so as to reduce risk of damage to the drysuit? Same with unloading, do you remove the drysuit before getting the kayak on the vehicle? Why type/brand of gear leashes are you using? I'm assuming Hobie hatches are not watertight, are you using Tupperware or dry bags for misc items to keep them dry? Any other advice or recommendations? How many of you use a VHF marine radio, and which inexpensive model would you recommend?
  8. I too just picked up a Kokatat Angler Gore-Tex Black Friday special. I'm completely new to dry suits, and appreciate all the excellent tips for first timers in this thread. Also picked up NRS paddling shoes, Terramar mid weight tops and bottoms (already have a super light layer for under waders), Simms Skeena gloves. Any other info/gear you folks think would be helpful?
  9. I had a friend take it apart to try making the scale markings more readable. Now we can't get it back together! How did you reassemble it?
  10. Great! Let's get a group together!
  11. Follow up: Jeff from Pt Jude went above and beyond. Thank you for the fantastic customer service and for making great lures!
  12. I ended going with the Humminbird Helix 7 G2N SI. It has everything I want, including creating custom mapping as you fish, and can network with another unit. The only thing it doesn't have is touch screen, but I figured splash on the screen might be an issue. If you can fit a 9", they have a MEGA version, which provides even more superior side-scan.
  13. Thank you. I'm assuming the dealer responses are a CYA in case something happens. The bigger vehicle thought was more about having extra space to store the mirage drive, paddle, shovel, boards, air compressor, 6 rods ( might fish freshwater or inlets in the day, then Montauk rocks surfcasting at night), 2 sets of waders, coolers, and multiple crates. of tackle some place secure and out of the elements.
  14. Riddler, thanks for the info and the videos! Luckily, he's going to have a Helix 10 with mega transducer on his boat, so mine stays in place. I just grab my unit and battery, stick a network cable in, and presto! 2 screens on his boat, 1 movable. When you folks are beaching, do you take the kayak into thigh high water, then stick the wheels in the scupper holes under the boat, and pull to shore? It seems that would do less scraping of the transducer and bottom of boat then pulling it to the beach and turning it sideways ?
