I keep saying I am, then don’t. Catching up on this thread to see if it’s worth it. No curtains on my boat. If I do, guessing I’ll cast jigs to some docks. Maybe find a striper or two. Nothing...

heycharlie I need to learn how to fish reefs. Haven't seen a trout in a while. Reds only, which I love, but they don't school up like trout. Harder to keep the kids interested.

Red tide still going on in Hampton roads?

Thinking of getting out today. Anyone know if red tide is still an issue in the Mobjack and general HR area? If so, thoughts on where to find clean water?

’twas the magnets. Upper one on the prop side detached and broke in half. Looks like replacing the housing also means replacing the shaft. Believe that would entail de-soldering of the brushes as...

Serious question: can you fish the flats in a boat like that? Always wondered as the draft is 1.5' which isn't much more than my 22' deep v CC.

Bad traffic is all about the tunnels. Do yourself a favor and live on the peninsula. The Coleman is fine, so Gloucester is an option.

Truck vs SUV: Simple Tow Vehicle Question
