Back in the Spring I bought a Piscifun Torrent baitcasting reel to test and review.

My review is here:

Northeast US Lake Conditions / Water Temps Dropping!
« on: August 15, 2019, 10:26:47 AM »
Last week the water temps were hanging at 83 - 84. Yesterday I was shocked when I saw it had dropped to 76  :o
With the hot temps forecasted in the coming 10 days or so, it will climb again, but it's that time of year when it will start its rollercoaster ride into the fall season. Man, I hate fall because I know it leads to Winter  :crying:

I have been using a braided line that I had never heard of before. After using it since March, I put a review together this week!

See how it turned out.

Northeast US Lake Conditions / Water Temps Climbing
« on: June 27, 2019, 01:21:13 PM »
The recent warm spell has the local water temps climbing into the mid 70s! I have no doubt that by the end of the day tomorrow, some lakes will be nudging 80 degrees  :o

Boating Forum / Check Your Trolling Motor For Line!

Be sure to remove your TM prop at least once or twice per year to check for debris on the prop shaft!
Old line is a killer of the seals that keep water out of the guts of your TM, so make sure none of it is living behind the prop.
I took mine apart this week and here's what I removed from behind there!

Braided line is the worst because it takes so much to break it. It will chew up seals in a hurry.  :yes:

I love the Lew's Carbon Fire rods, so I decided to test one of their Carbon Fire spinning reels.

Check out the review here:

I just finished writing my review of the Piscifun Torrent Baitcasting Rod.

The Hawg Forum / Rain, Clouds, Wind.

Wow. What a strange April it has been so far!
I'm really glad it has warmed up so much. I have to say, though, that this has been an extremely wet, windy April!! I wonder what the last half of April will bring  :hmm:

2011 16 Ft. Tracker Boat (Model SGV-16SC)
  • 30HP Mercury Outboard w/only 29 hours of run time
  • Minn Kota Powerdrive V2 Trolling Motor
  • Hummingbird Model 798ci SI HD, combo GPS/Fish finder
  • Meticulously Maintained
  • Garaged during fall and winter months
This boat belonged to one of my guide clients who passed away from cancer late last year. He took impeccable care of it and it was lightly used.
His wife is now selling it and has asked me to help spread the word. Please see the attached PDF file for all of the details.

« on: March 18, 2019, 11:02:48 AM »
So now we're at that time of year where we watch the weather patterns and the temperatures bounce up and down and then up again for the next several weeks!

Always an adventure as lakes start opening up and we break our boats out of the mothballs  :yes:
