    Average size jigsticks.

    9+ makes alot of sense on a sportboat. They're not gonna move the boat with passengers hooked up to bait and jigfish, thus the longer stick will get the jig out to where the fish are.

    Who remembers when...

    Oh yeah,Kmart and Unimart too. I bought my first reel,a Penn 60 and solid glass w/wood butt rod from Unimart for less than $20.Still have that reel somewhere. Midway Bait & Tackle was I think the only real tackle store around.

    Favorite Bucketmouth Bait

    For topwater,Smithwick Devils Horse in perch-try one at El Cap or Loveland. Clear Jr Spook on the bank,at San V. Shiners,circle hooks on a dropper loop or under a float are fun too.

    Hull Repair

    First off, the integrity of the transom may be compromised by water intrusion if the crack is big enough. Buy a tube of Solar Rez at a surf shop and drill a couple of exploratory holes in the transom near the lowest points outside the hull. If water drips or pours out it's transom replacement...

    What Gary said. Also I've found the mixing cups from Squidco have graduations on them which can be felt on the inside of the cup. Those can also help introduce bubbles while mixing. I found some cups at Smart & Final like you get salsa in that are smooth inside,much better. Or use a shot glass...
