    Bump, 2007 $20k less than any other alike on here, thanks for looking!
  72. jgerken

    Should I trade it?

    To match with the JX an 700h will be plenty. Don't move to the 800 unless you are really comfortable with the 8 ft rod. There tends to be a thought of overkill. Your JX is a badass reel. Like the 700h more than the 800xh. Good luck, a lot of good advice for you.

    MLPA boycott list

    Where did the list come from? I can't believe that the Frog House supported the MLPA. I will call TK and Mike in the morning. Mikey is a huge fisherman. He schedules trips all of the time. As far as the list, let's find out the source and if true... You won't find my money there.

    Stationary rape! The bison looks like it enjoys it. No arm wavings or protesting. Can't believe I read this post.

    Opinions on New Boat

    Buy a used Oprey Pilothouse. You'll need to go to the 30' if you don't want an engine hatch. Skagit Orca makes one too. Obviously I am biased. One of the best decisions I have made. If you don't want an engine hatch stay with outboards and you could do a 26'. I prefer the diesel, but new...
