  1. Drop shotting is one of the most successful techniques for many types of fish. Its even used in salt water applications. you can use plastics, dead and/or live bait. Another Bass technique I will be trying for 'eyes this spring is shaky head. inject a bit of air in a big crawler and bounce it along the bottom.. Super finesse technique that just has to work.
  2. With all the Boats and RV's firing up for the summer there's no doubt why the fuel prices go up every spring.
  3. Hey bud, most of this kind of hardware is made by one or two manufacturers (Perko comes to mind). If you can find the brand and model number, call Marine Outfitters in Kingston. They should be able to order it and they have reasonable prices.
  4. This shows how the surrounding sand rubs on the gel-coat but the keel guard protects the pointed edge of the keel as it moves over and into the ground.
  5. This is the one I have and I beach the boat all the time. You never know what's lurking under the sand.. Ranger Factory install
  6. Not sure about the coverage he has but Ranger bass boats are like insuring Ferrari's. I have a '15 Ranger 620fs (multi species) and it runs me about 1200/year full replacement value and 10k in contents. Compare that to a 100k sports car? That will run north of 2K/yr.
  7. Excellent to deal with. Call them if you don't see what you need in their online catalogue and they'll try and find it.
  8. Check out the walleye central forums. There's one for canada and its frequented by Americans that travel to Ontario all the time. Tons of advise on outfitters w/American plan offerings. Lac Soul is a popular destination for trophy fish. They may also have recommendations for northers Manitoba and Saskatchewan outfitters because these provinces are world famous for trophy pike.

  9. And they love perch patterns for some reason...
  10. That's a good point. Baitcasters are many times more complex than spinning reels which means you have to spend a bit more to get something in the middle of the bell curve. Curado yes, Tatula yes... I have a Tatula type R that I just love and it works in all kinds of senarios (and looks better doing it than the shimano...lol).
  11. As previously mentioned, your application would help us with a recommendation. Also, as previously mentioned there's really no 'bad braid" out there. The only one I really didn't like was PP super slick as I found it would dig in on the spool which made casting problematic. Generally, I use plain old Power Pro Green (spectra) for everything from Bass to Muskie. Its the benchmark/industry standard braid and can usually be found on sale. Also, the mono backing idea is a great way to save a few $$. Another option is that you put on a full spool of braid and after a few seasons you run it off onto another reel so the unused portion is now on the outside of the spool. For mono backing, Berkley big game is an economic choice.
