Re: Upgraded to HDS 8's Gen 2 Wiring questions

Remember to always use a fuse on the power (red) lead when running a new power cable to one of your units. I would use 10 or 12 gauge wire so you have plenty of juice. I am planning up a system like Ken was describing here. I read somewhere else that you should match the wire gauge when extending t...

Re: Carpet Burns | One of the most controversial aspects of Major League Fishing

I think the rule helps portray a level of respect for the fish that is not shown by all anglers The ever popular 'swing a fish and drop it hard on the deck and have it flop around' is definitely not a good image for the sport. Especially if it adds another reason for any libtard 'fishing is cruel' f...

Re: Fees & Taxes for Used Boat Purchase

Interested in this info to as I am boat sopping. I think it is the same as a car. The buyer pays state sales tax on the purchase price.

Therefore, how does the bass population have a negative effect on the Salmon? I have fished the delta for many years and I have still yet to see a wolf pa...

Even just blue gravel and a some form of a blue background film may add the effect you are looking for.

I have the opportunity to score some gift cards. Eventually going to buy a new trolling motor or electronics. Is there much of a difference price wise between the two? Better historic sales? Better service? Any insight would be appreciated.

Unfortunately it is a tough place to live if you want to go bass fishing. There is no "local" fishery really. Ruth lake is a great lake, 2hrs away at the most. But now you have to pay $20 to launch due to bogus quagga inspections. I have not been there for years because it was a dink facto...

Re: What swimbait is best for a beginner???

The 6" Rising son is a very easy bait to get used to throwing. It is a bait that fishes high in the water column, so it has its limits. But throwing it like a spinnerbait around shallow cover will get bit on any lake.

Hey Buttafucco, Sometimes you just might have to put down the swimbait for a little while and throw those big worms! The other thing I was thinking that we used to do on Clear lake was find the moon shadows. Visualize your spots and fish where the bass can ambush from that dark spot. Your starting t...
