Re: Truck selection for boat towing

I love my Gen2 Dodge cummins.

2001 Dodge 2500. The cummins engine has 200k and no signs of slowing down. I used to pull a 21ft Ranger 521 with ease. I've since downsized to a 19fter and get even better fuel economy.

Re: Striper Report 11/10/18

From my experience the fall run fish tend to school up with similar size fish.

In the spring you can have all sizes mixed into one school.

We are targeting the biggest fish with large glides and top water. That's our way of eliminating the small bites.
