    Want to buy Hobie Electric Motor System

    Thanks for the replys . I bought my Kayak from Andy at OEX . I am looking for a used one . I should have said that in my post . Sorry . The system is about $2000 . Ouch . I am thinking it might be tough to find a used one at this point since it is a fairly new system . It looks sick though . I...

    Thanks so much !! Gonna check that site out . Looks like Rowlett creek may be a good place to catch a bunch of sand bass in a few hours this time of year . We do not have those in Cali so that would be cool . Not a lot of creeks to fish in either. It is sounding like fun . Hopefully Rowlett...

    Do all Striper owners have no clue?

    ass hats occupy all income brackets . having the money to buy a high dollar boat does not make you a good fisherman or follow patty ettiquette . in many cases quite the opposite .

    Irvine Lake Trolling 101

    Trolling is not boring when hook ups are coming often. And nothing is more boring than bait fishing . Mini jigging and drop shotting are probably the most fun , but trolling has been the most productive method for me. And catching is more fun than fishing most of the time . To answer your...
