    Boat and baitwell sizes??

    Hi there, Nope. No reinforcement at all. No signs of stress or spider cracking. I think NauticStar and many other center console manufacturers offer the option of a stock livewell + leaning post combo, so I wouldn't worry about it. Many guys also do the same install and I've yet to hear anyone...

    How much does a fella pay to his host on a private boat?

    Guests who are going on a pleasure cruise and drinking alcohol and eating cheese and crackers on my boat? I've never asked for a penny. Guests who fish and bring their gear and we go offshore for the whole day? We all split the cost of gas, bait, and food/drinks. It's important to have a...

    Damn, you moved it all to Idaho and then shipping it back to sell? Hopefully you have green bass access there. GLWS

    Do you drive your boat at night? Another set of props destroyed..

    Nope. Only time would be right before sunrise. Seen jokers running WOT with barely or no running lights. That's how you end up on the news. I got people who need me to stay alive and well.

    FG Knot Performance

    I tried it for a good two months, including glue over it, and I couldn't get it to work consistently for me. Yes, I know it's my technique and my fault. But damned if it isn't the only knot that is so damn finicky to tie for me. I don't have time for that on a boat 30 miles offshore. Damn thing...

    Freedom Boat Club reviews?

    My friend is a FBC member in SD. He fishes, literally, 3 - 5 times a week. So he's had use of all the boats down there PLUS he fishes with other FBC members who use the boats under their name. He is quite happy with it, except for the fact that the boats aren't always fishing specific, and you...

    Simrad and Garmin are relatively the same (especially price). It's personal preference. I like Garmin's navigational software. If you've got the money, Furuno is top notch imo. If it's going on your 17 footer, I don't know if I'd swing that kind of money for it. Totally happy with my Garmins.

    Reading my Fish finder

    Don't use auto when offshore fishing. Monitor about 100 - 150 feet. When I find marks on a paddy, I'll even set it to 60 - 80 feet when I know they're up higher. Set your gain lower as the top is surface disturbance and possibly bait. But that's a LOT of fish man. Hope you caught some.

    Mid-life crisis boat options?

    A midlife crisis boat? A cigar boat with flames on the side. You wearing Borat style swimsuit complete with gold chain and chest hair. Then at least 2 babes with chest floaters next to you. Don't forget cigar in mouth.

    LEXA 300, the story of a baitcaster virgin

    Congrats! Get practice as much as you can, and even have hookless lures/weights to toss some casts when not near the water. When throwing the Lucky Crafts, I've had great luck not just reeling them in (go crazy with the patterns for how you do it). I like to jerk the rod back towards my toes...
