    Gasp! A Area 7 Fish report!

    Well done, my friday efforts resulted in nill. I never seem to catch fish when it’s raining, and it was on-off-on rain all morning. Did find lots of bait and plenty of marks to chase:

    Another transducer question

    Technically true, that it’s a not a Low Wide. Mis-stated. I was transmitting at 42kHz which is 25 degree beam/cone. (widest it will transmit.) The Hi is 25-30 degree beam/cone, and i had it at 250 kHz so like 27 degree cone. I was trying compare the two elements keeping the beam widths the...

    Another transducer question

    quick report, the transom mount tm275lhw was awesome. — Did not play around too much with settings (gain/rejection/etc); mostly left the Garmin to auto. (will get it dialed on another trip) And found the “low wide” element actually worked better. Stronger returns/marks, and the fish and...

    @MarkColeman thanks for the parts awhile back. And for showing the boat, it’s quiet the impressive body of work you’ve put together. — A lot of people are going to be thrilled just to go for the ride. (Let alone catch some fish.) Flagship of the All Rivers Armada.

    Throwable PFD group buy

    perfect, i’ve been looking for one on the small boat. These are pricey little buggers but huge space savers.

    Another transducer question

    I intend to get a TM275LHW in the next week or so. So no report, other than the spec’s seem pretty decent for most salmon and tuna fishing, but will probably be too broad a cone for precise structures on deep halibut/ling. My concern was Garmin XSV series actually putting 1kw to each element...

    Custom trailer

    TuffTrailer. Love mine, granted my boat weighs half the 32TE. This said, that’s a lot of boat to be trailer around. Do able, yes, absolutely. — But may not be practical. 12.4’ wide (??? tall) and 26k lbs is going to put some transport limitations.

    Anyone got an opinion on

    I have several new and old style. I went with the new style recently because... 1) Now in lefty version...not for me personally but need a couple on my boat. 2) 6.3 ratio so they crank fast. Super fast for bringing in gear! 3) Smaller profile. (at least 600’s) And as Redzwulf stated. Gears...

    Etec’s toast....

    this is a bit of a market shock. I’ve got one that I love (hp to weight ratio is perfect).

    looking for ideas for lowering kicker

    Otherwise you really want a hydraulic mini-jack plate or kicker bracket.

    looking for ideas for lowering kicker

    Can the rigid kicker bracket be removed and mounted under the swim step (upside down). Several angles and clearances at play; but may work out with some minor hardware mods. Or new bracket mounted underneath. Bigger issue on swim step mounts is clearing the stern wake once tilted up. The...

    Neah bay reservations

    Their (Mike) FB page said they were going to start calling people about affected reservations. (That was dated the 6th May.) — This said, there’s probably a pretty decent backlog to call, and probably a decent cash flow issue to address as well. (We may end up with store credit, not too hot...
