J/K but I am hating that lake right now. Senkos and c-rigged lizards and reapers in 12-20 ft. will get bites, can not tell you they will be the right bites but you should be able to put a limit in the boat

If it wasn't clear, the idea behind the marketing is to promote sales of new models--it's not a vintage boat show. Although that would be a great idea too--I'd love to see a tournament geared toward 60s and 70s era boats and equipment. A "Golden Age of Bass Angling" promo tournament serie...

I have been three times, most recently last year. Mississippi Lake has the best bass fishing with plenty of 12-14 inch bass to keep you bust all day long. We fished Coit lake years ago but it is full of very small fish and gets greater pressure because of its proximity to bike trails. The problem is...

I love my Seal Skinz as well. I have an insulted pair and an uninsulated pair and I would not give them up. I also recently started wearing a pair of wicking socks under them to keep my feet from getting clammy, although not as much with the uninsulated ones.

My neighbor used the Cabelas kit on his older ski boat and has not has a problem. He has been towing his boat for two summers now without an issue. He is only a recreational boater (may 6 times a summer) so I do not know how it would hold up for a hard core fisherman.
