Re: 5 Rescued at Lake Oroville from Boat Crash; at least 1 dead

This is sad news ! Is it me, or does it seem like there have been a lot of boat related deaths this year ? It's almost like every weekend we hear of a death on the water. Please be careful out there, watch out for the other guy and be courteous !! Be safe !!

Re: Ultrex trolling motor connected to Lowrance + Bird

The Ultrex has to be connected to the Bird for it to function on contour. Also, Navionics works only with Lowrance, so you'll need a Lake Master chip and it only works with Bird. SO, as I see it, you'll need an extra bird and Lakemaster at the helm to do what you want to do. To see whats below the b...

I have an open back seat @ Clear Lake

Hey all, I'll be at Clear Lake May 7th & 8th and my partner can't make it. I'm staying at the casino and will have an open backseat if anyone is interested in fishing for a day or two. Easy going, relaxed guy, so you be same. Share expense.

Re: 2018 Z19 help

The plugs are used to adjust your hole shot. If you are getting on plane smoothly without plowing out, you won't need them. If you are blowing out, then start with the medium plugs and try it, if that doesn't cure it go to the smaller plugs. If it still doesn't put in the solid plugs.
