Re: 1st boat decisions and questions

Buy a newer used glass boat and fish out of it til you die. By the time you retire a new top of the line glass bass boat is going to cost $125K. A 2013 glass boat will be just fine in 2033 for fun fishing or if you want to compete in larger tournaments. You can add the latest accessories and repower...

Re: is the Honda 2000iu generator best to charge gel batterys?

I have a 2000 watt Yamaha generator and I used to run three 10 amp chargers at the same time without any issues. Plenty of power for the job. Make sure you hide it whether its at your campsite or in your vehicle because they're a target for theft.

Re: 5#er on topwater

Those topwater fish are fun. I was out Wednesday and done okay. I fished from about 8:30-1:00. I think I boated 4 fish in the 3-4 lb class and several other sub 2 lb fish. I caught one of the better fish on top and one punching then I believe the rest on senkos. The wind got up so I left.

Re: Considering a proposal to remove size and daily bag limits on bass, walleye and channel catfish

Obviously WDFW would prefer if these fish species were eradicated but they disguise their agenda as "simplifying sport rules" which makes it sound like they're doing the fisherman a favor.

I wish these A-holes would just do their job and protect what we have instead of playing politics.

It took me a long time to break the DD barrier. Figured out last year that if you fish the delta and clear lake as much as possible during pre-spawn and spawn then there's a good chance of catching a bass over 10 lbs. Even if you don't break the 10# mark your gonna catch a bunch in the 5-8 lb class.

I'm guessing that boat will top out in the low 40's. How fast are you looking to go?
Length will play no part in top end speed. Width and weight combined will probably take a few mph off the top end with what your current boat gets. Heck, being its a new motor it might perform the same.
