  1. I found that Gulp sand worms out produce the real ones.
  2. I always thought the Chevrolet Avalanche was a clever design. I don’t know why GM stopped making it. I think a lot of people would like a truck with a folding mid gate. I believe it would have sold better if it was offered in a smaller version. Most people don’t want a full size truck. Those who do, want it for work and they prefer the conventional bed.
  3. One of the many reasons I don’t like pickup trucks. Never liked how the bed and cab are isolated from each other. It would be nice if pickups were made with a door between the cab and bed. Would make carrying long items much more practical.
  4. Yes! That’s the one. I couldn’t think of the name. Thanks!
  5. I use them for trolling. That’s about all they’re good for.
  6. I remember several years ago a company made a kayak specific rod (I forgot which company it was) that had an extra long butt. I just couldn’t see how that made it better for kayak use. Seemed like the opposite of what you want in a kayak rod. Anyway, it didn’t stay on the market long. I’m sure it was not well received.
  7. Herring fed smallmouth are a completely different animal.
  8. That looks like redneck ingenuity!
  9. The only time it is normal to see raccoons out in the daytime is when they have young.
  10. That’s a lot of drag! How deep in the water is the transducer? Is it possible to position the arm so it is just below the surface? If it works inside the hull it should work on the arm just barely submerged in the water?? I would probably just go with mounting it inside the hull.
  11. Same goes on here in Jersey with the bridge fishermen. Should be illegal.
  12. It’s a Hobie, he doesn’t want to crack the hull. Warranty won’t cover that.
  13. That incident happened in approximately 2005. I have been fishing for most of my life and that was my first and only shark encounter. I am in no way trying to convince anyone that this is a common occurrence but it does happen. Don’t be paranoid about it just be mindful. Use common sense.
  14. Years ago I was fishing near the shipping channel on Raritan Bay and was reeling in a keeper size fluke. The reel suddenly started screaming and then I was reeling in dead weight. When I got it in it was half a fluke. Just before I got it out of the water the shark came by looking to get the other half. It was over 6’ long. I’m not sure what kind of shark it was. I also would never use a stringer.
  15. What Riddler is saying, is use the equipment that brings you the most enjoyment from kayak fishing. Buy what you can afford and don’t worry about losing it. I have never lost a rod and reel kayak fishing but I have lost them from the boat. I bring the most expensive stuff I have with me. I bought my stuff to use not to preserve. If I lose one of my Loomis rods, I will feel bad but that’s the chance we take. It will be one less fishing rod someone is going to get at the garage sale after I die.
