  1. FYI. Those wasr comes with the new reciever. The original receivers were cut in half to be legally imported. Then places like centiry arms stamp their own reciever and put it back together. Sometimes they done good, sometimes not so much....... Actually, that might not be a wasr10. wasr10 was a legal import, but had a special single inline stack magazine. Not the typical AK zig zag stacked magazine. Regular AK mags couldn't fit in there at all...... wasr10 was like 30% thinner or so..... The recievers could be opened up to fit though......
  2. MY main rod is 9'6" with that rating......... so yeah............ It's more ab out being there at the right time than casting out far enough....... The longer you can fish, the more you catch...........
  3. All I can add is your going to have to cut the butt down on whatever you find. So, you might as well start looking that way. Nice in slow with a fresh hacksaw blade, give it a dab or epoxy to prevent cracks from starting / growing. Barlow's has rd building parts. Im sure there's local places too
  4. rhino racks arent bad I got one for my 2017 ford focus. Weight isnt the issue, wind load is...... J bars make the kayaks have alot of drag and some lift to them.... I got (2) big 12ft old ton pedal kayaks and the thule convertible 2 or 1 kayak mount for my rhino bars. I had to pin the metal mountings inside the door frame to prevent the rack from wandering backwards at 55-65mph speeds.... Pelicans should be ok. A good front strap mounting location under the bumper is tricky with economy cars. And almost impossible not to have it rub on the paint / hood. Putting around 30/40mph zones to the launch with those guys will be a breeze with that rhino. Flip them down and make sure you got a wide enough load bar for both of them..... Take a look at thule 503 square bar load stops. They can be real handy with those kayaks. I've had them for years for canoes, kayaks, lumber. They are stury and handy.......
  5. A scrub and wash would make those look decent again. I've repainted door panel and seat vinyl as well as redyed faded carpet a few times on gto's and a ford falcon.
  6. More folks are eating at home....... they cook more than they need to, and waste more than a resturant does...... demand is up...... The critters are there, they just need a bunch of people right next to each other to process it....... I'd use recipies to make more with less..... casseroles, soups, use pan drippings in side dishes......... Make more with less.......... I got a bit creative this morning. I made scrambled eggs with peppers and onions, then put some left over taco meat in the microwave and mixed it up. It was great. Alot of dishes over the centuries made more with less. Asian cooking is a very good example. Before modern supermarkets, chicken was not a staple... You were eating your egg layers....... 1700's and 1800's roasted chicken was like a christmas dinner. Those dry old hen's were used for soup cause they were tough meat.
  7. I love my tin boat..... Pull the motor, put it in the shed, flip the boat...... winterized....... A carolina skiff and a 25-40hp outboard would be tons of fun........
  8. 2 anchors will keep your boat more stable. And when drifting, a drift sock will keep your nose in the wind. These two things will reduce sea sickness........ Always face the front or rear of the boat. Facing the side of the boat makes folks more sea sick...... Sometimes a little offset from the center of the boat left/right helps too. A friend with a boat is better than a boat.......... Also compare the price of keeping one up, having it in a marina, and gas to hiring an occasional charter or party boating........ Of course my thinking was pre-corona virus..... Just me on long island, I have had a blast with a inflatable and bay / marsh fishing.......
  9. A 16ft rowboat will keep you dry on the right day....... Just depends on when you want to fish........ Don't rule out a center console. You're going to find them cheaper than walk arounds....... There is nothing more reliable than 2 motors.......... 6-10hp kicker......... Do not rule out a pleasure craft, like a typical cabin cruiser or cuddy cabin. Any decent suitable boat is better than none at all.... Also, consider where you will launch it. Some places have trouble with bigger boat at low tide...... Also, current..... Smaller boats are easier to handle at the dock when tying up single handed....... All newer motors are more or less good... The bad part is their previous or current owners.........
  10. Selling a year and a half old tsunami airwave elite 1102M. Will add pics tonight. Meet anywhere north of pughkeepsie by the river. I fish in the catskill area, but an excuse to fish down south will be accepted. Rods in good shape. Got a bad disc in my neck. I can fish a 962m for longer periods of time. Awesome rod though.....
  11. Will add pictures tonight.... Pair of plueger president 20's. Bought last year and fished maybe 3 times. Like my shimano saharas more...... $60 for pair shipped Torium 16PG. Might have the mode wrong, will update tonight. $150 shipped
  12. That happen already? A bonus is checking out the basins and mark nice features with a gps. Local town dam was rebuilt and I fish that place soo much better now I know where to go. That was about 10 years ago.
  13. I find using a regular swivel and gluing the 2 line knots at a decent angle apart reduces tangles. Using yo-zuri fluoro helps alot too. Sure others work good, but that stuff is alot stiffer than your run of the mill mono line....
  14. Funny, read about spro swivels. The very first one I used came apart like nothing. Fell apart tying the knot.... Probably a rare fluke, but enough of a bad omen for me........ Used the bag and never got another. I buy eagle claw bulk ones and never had a problem.
  15. The best knot is the one you tie well. I do both. I use a swivel with a 3-4ft main leader, then a 2nd 9-12" leader for the teaser. Probably the strongest method due to simplicity. Dropper loops I often use on the boat for homemade hi lo rigs. #1 hook and a 3" green gulp for the top hook. Anything that comes in its ways usually takes atleast a nibble..... MY weakest link is the braid to leader knot usually. Seems the braid strangles the mono/fluoro and pinches it till it comes off. I find if your gentle with knot forming. Easy to pull on the knot end. Help form that first turn without forcing it. And use some sort of knot lube, like loogie lube..... Another big increase in knot strenght for me is super gluing. I get the knot mostly formed dry, then put a drop of glue on it. Then I give it the last pulling into shape. The glue keeps the strangling down and doubles as a knot lube. Double uniknots leaders is my achilees tendon. Tying the braid to the swivel directly removes this issue. For ease of use, I use mono on the boat. Freshwater I use mono too. Braid is for stripers only for me. Thats me though.....
