Turkey calling tips

I always recommend starting with a friction call. These are the easiest to learn. Learning to use a diaphragm on your own without a tutor can be frustrating. One tip for learning to use a diaphragm is to use your smartphone to record yourself and play it back to get a better understanding of what yo...

Sketchy Shallow Run

Sounds like you're going to upgrade. What boats are you looking at? Just a side note. I bought a 20 lb drift boat galvanized pyramid anchor and am really pleased with it. If you anchor in swift water a lot, you might give one a try. I'm likely going to an inboard RockProof with UHMW. To slow my dri...

Battery charger help needed.

I thought you could still find the old school analog chargers like you're talking about at auto parts stores? I bought one maybe 2 or 3 years ago.

Longtail run up the river like a Jet?

Not quite jet like, but still get you to a lot places a normal prop won't go. Pretty cool.

Sketchy Shallow Run

Shallow, rocky, sketchy run to fish a stretch of river I've been wanting to hit for a couple of years. This run is pretty much the limit for my G3 and likely the last run I'll make on it. She's been a good boat, but I've reached the limits of its capability and there are waters worse than this that ...

Tm lay down?

I stow with the prop to the side that I'm least likely to walk on. But, most people mount so that the motor is angle to the port side when stowed...I never thought that made any sense and mount mine so that it is angled to the starboard when stowed.

Merc 80 Jet Enough for my 1860??

80 at the pump or 80 at the engine? 65 at the pump is the absolute lowest I would go for a 1860 coming in around 700-900lb dry weight.

12 volt vs 24 volt

I us a 24V #80 with an aftermarket Kippawa prop. The prop makes all the difference in the world. I need to give one of these a try. Have read a lot of good things about them. More overall power with a Kippawa? Night and day over a two-blade prop, the Kippawa prop moves a lot more water. When you sm...

Guide on posts

Side bunks work much better for smaller boats. Only big boats that require deeper water to launch need guide-ons to show you where the trailer is underwater.

Yeti

For the active man, this is the best coffee mug money can buy....and it's not that expensive. I have 3 and not a single one leaks. I use them year round from hunting out of treestand to kayaking. I wouldn't take anything for them. Coffee stays piping hot all day long. I like that you can toss it in ...

Yamaha F25 1st oil change

Should have changed the filter. The break in is for meeting parts to wear together. The F25 is a great motor...about bullet proof.
