RE:To net or not to net?

Hey everybody, In a fishing report I posted recently, an interesting point was brought up. I don't use a net to land any of the tigers I've caught. In my opinion , having a fish thrash around in a net with exposed treble hooks is just asking for injury to the fish. I get the fish boatside, get a fi...

Blueslide Resort on the Pend Orielle

Just wanted to post that my son and I stayed at the Blueslide Resort in Cusick and had a great time. The sites are not very private at all but we were there for the fishing and our neighbors were great. Everyone was very friendly and courteous. Special thanks to Mike and Laurie, they're the managers...

Mark K and Fish-N-Fool, I just wanted to come back and thank you again for the useful info. We launched at Blueslide and fished near the bible camp in and around the weedbeds and just nailed the pike.

P.O.R. slough identification and other ??

Hey everyone, My son and I are finally getting our Pend Orielle pike trip. We've been trying to go for 3 years and every year, something has come up forcing us to postpone. Anyway, after reading a bunch of reports, I'm asking myself, how do I know which slough is which? Are there any maps out there ...

RE:Very small wood burning stove for boats.

Hey Quad,

There's a store up here in Bellingham called the Pacific Marine Exchange that may have what you're looking for. It's like a boat junkyard/ consignment shop. I think they're closed on Sun. and Mon.

Pacific Marine Exchange
700 W Holly St.
Bellingham, WA 98225
(360) 738-8535

Good luck

RE:Bottom paint on a trailer boat

It has a good coat of gel-coat? That should be all that's necessary in fresh water. Anti-fouling paint is mostly for barnicals and such in salt water, if I remember correctly. Not going with gel coat, just paint. We just applied the third and final coat of Vinyl Ester resin to it tonight. I need a ...

Bottom paint on a trailer boat

We just finished fiberglassing our wood boat after some much needed repairs. The boat spends 99% of it's life sitting on the trailer. (I know.. I know) Anyway,it's now time to paint and I was wondering if a true"bottom paint" is necessary. It never sees salt water and the longest it sits in fresh wa...

RE:Wanted: Galvanized boat trailer for 16 foot runabout

At first glance it looks totaled, but just by looking at the pics, that trailer can be fixed. The main side beam would need to be straightened, but the tongue and some of the cross members can be replaced with new pieces of galvanized tubing. Find a good fab shop in your area and just bring them pic...

RE:Which Reel

Shimano, Quantum, and Diawa all make good reels. Whatever brand you choose, make sure it feels comfortable and fits your hand well. You will be making a lot of casts with it and if it doesn't feel right, you'll regret it. I personally prefer a reel with a lower gear ratio (my main reel is a 5.1:1) a...

"Burner" reel ratios

I need to start rotating in some new baitcasting reels because most of mine are starting to make some horrendous noises. I keep seeing ratios in the 7.0:1 range. Other than my muskie reels which are low geared, the fastest reel I have is 6.3:1. The only situation I could use a faster ratio reel is m...
