Junk or Gem - Trophy Strike Trolling Motor

.... Such a coincidence, did you write and challenge them about their "reviews"? Nope. I don't trust ANY reviews. I use forums like this to 'find the 'truth' usually. When I do happen to look at reviews, I get more from the 1 star than anything, and usually look for a trend or subject in common. An...

Junk or Gem - Trophy Strike Trolling Motor

[quote="gnappi"]If you believe "reviews" like: httpss://www.bestreviews.guide/trolling-motors Yes indeed, my friend! I don't believe reviews like this one. That's why I'm asking for opinions from those who have actually "owned" one. Have you owned one of these? If so..... what do you think about it?

Junk or Gem - Trophy Strike Trolling Motor

I bought a 2 man 10' Pond Prowler style boat (plastic pond-boat). I need a trolling motor, and I didn't want to keep taking the one off of my 'tin boat'. I'm not needing a fancy one, but would like 55lbs thrust. Has anyone here owned a Trophy Strike brand motor? It's significantly cheaper than the o...

Homemade TANGLE FREE Trotline Organizer - my PVC idea..

...... What area do you live in..... I live in central Missouri. I'm about a mile from a boat ramp on the Missouri River. My usual routine is for me and my son to go out on a Friday after work and set one 25 hook trotline and 12 bank poles, and check them the next morning. It's been a slow year for...

Seriously!!!??? I had no idea of such crazy rules. California really does have some 'unique' regulations. Sorry to hear that.

Homemade TANGLE FREE Trotline Organizer - my PVC idea..

Everyone has their technique of keeping their drop lines from getting tangled. The most common I’ve seen and done over the years, is to simply hang the hook end around the rim of a bucket. However, the clip ends will soon tangle and cause a mess as well. I came up with a solution that has saved me a...

Sunflower seeds.....random pic.....no reason

I grew those, too, back in Oregon, but was disappointed that very few seeds seemed to have good sized meats in them. Then I discovered Dakota Style Jumbos at the grocery store, and never looked back. This is from a packet of "Mammoth Sunflower" seeds I poked in the ground in late spring. The deer n...

Bimini Top Installation Video

Biminis are a love/hate relationship for me. I hate the things for all intensive purposes, because the only reason I am on a boat is to fish, and they make it much harder to fish without a doubt. But when it's too hot or a pop up rain shower comes, they sure are worth it. YES! It's funny how the 2 ...
