New from tampa!

Hunter, Whenever you want to do some saltwater fishing give me some notice and we'll set something up. Im not set up for shark fishing and not sure I want to be. I love throwing lures at specks and Reds, but I am perfectly fine putting a shrimp on a bobber and waiting. I will trade you sometime I'll...

Cali27's 1436 Tracker Mod

Cali, Boat looks fantastic, I like what you did with the front the storage is a bonus. As for the motor, did it smoke the whole time you had it running? It should have burned off any residual oil that might have been left in the chamber. Also what ratio of oil are you running? I do believe it should...

question about batteries

You can use them for a trolling motor but three of them wired together is only about 55 amp hours which depending on trolling motor and conditions is approximately 2-3 hours. If were using your trolling motor just to move around a fishing spot then I would say they would be fine, but if you are usin...

Will it be stable?

The few guys that I fish with know to say Im standing up or moving or whatever. The hardest part is when the boat moves and you are not expecting it. I took ...

16 Foot Starcraft Jon Boat

The seller should be able to hook it up to his hose or run it in a bucket like he would/should do when flushing the motor. Keep in mind that I would still do common maintinence on the motor, ignition, water pump, Carb rebuild, fuel pump rebuild, lower unit oil, etc. It nice to have that piece of min...
