    LUND / Aluminum boats - your opinion??

    I had a 1998 16ft lund with the wheel on the starboard side. Had a live well and two 6gal fuel tanks. Had a 50hp on the back. One of the best boats I ever owned. Crossed the Westport bar many times. Wish I still had it.

    Need a slow pitch rod for my new Valiant BV2-500N

    I have no advice on this, but I setting up the same thing to fish the Yankee Capt. I have been looking at the Okuma Hawaiian jigging rod heavy version. $199. But there are plenty of options.

    Deep water lines West Port Washington

    I would go 60, thinner and 60 is plenty strong. Cuts through the water better, and does not scope out as much during the drift.

    Deep water lines West Port Washington

    Take your 4/0 it's fine. Use specta its fine to. A pipe jig will work, if you are lucky he will stop in 250 and fish for sand dabs for bait. I'm guessing you not not fish any deeper than 450ft.

    WTB. 15-20 HP four stroke tiller motor

    I recently bought at 12ft Livingston. Fixed the gel coat up, and now I just need a motor. Looking for a 15-20 HP regular shaft motor. Must be tiller, and would prefer electric start. 2008 or newer. Cash in hand for a nice motor!

    LingCod help westport

    Run north, pretty easy to find some structure. There are some close spots around 6 miles, they are pretty small, and the # are closely guarded. Start looking around 10-12 miles north of the north jetty, 100-115 ft. When you see a big spot of suspended fish, those will be rock fish. Just drop...

    Question about fishing line

    Depends on target species? And are the fish line shy? 80 to 60, or 80 to 50 is perfect if they will bite that class line. I really like Yozuri pink, but there are a lot of good floro lines, and lots of different prices to go along with it. And I really dislike Vanish, think it's made by...
