    navionics or lakemaster chips

    Ditto on Platinum Navionics..
  2. Rocks, stumps, submerged trees, barbed wire fences, submerged metal objects, aka cars, who knows. I now have a primary and two spares. Soon to have another.
  3. I am trying the Bass Pro gear guard warranty on a new net that is on order. I'll keep you posted. I told the young lady that sold me the net that sometimes all I got back was the rope. She laughed and said bring it in.

    Any Garmin Echomap owners here?

    My Lowrance HDS 12 Gen 2 is now a dinosaur. But it still functions well and I know how to use it. But, I would really like one of the new Garmin 7616 units. Someone loan me $6,000.
  5. I don't know anything about doing this, but why don't you put a fiberglass transom back in the boat? Never understood using wood in a boat anyway? There are companies that make all kinds of pultruded fiberglass shapes.
  6. My cheapo cast net is a Betts No-Spook 10' in 3/8 mesh. If you are new to cast netting, I would probably start with a 6' and work up from there. And, yes, I have several in various lakes that are now permanent fixtures. I have figured out if you order them in pairs, the shipping cost is the same.
  7. At about 1:36, you can see someone come out of the dam house and watch. I thought they were working on taking all the low water dams out of the river systems?

    Fishing License

    I like the idea of pro-rating it out per day. I normally get a sportsman's license, but it jumped up quite a bit in price last year, and I haven't hunted in many years. So, I jumped on the $59 all species fishing license with a $5.00 hard card for this year. I'm kind of in the same boat on an annual license lasting one year from the date of purchase. I saltwater fish quite a bit in Florida, and last year in Louisiana. The year long license has helped me quite a bit in those state.

    Giving it a shot today

    I was just happy to be out on a beautiful day. Never been fishing in East Tennessee on Feb 22 in shorts and a short sleeved shirt. Boat ran, everything worked. Mounted a new Riptide Ulterra that worked great. When I got hurt, I had a tank of bait to go fishing the next day. Had to get Trey to dump it for me. All in all, a good day.

    Yep, appoint Ezell as my guardian fisherman. Survived. Slow but one 19 pound striper!!! Beats a poke in the eye with a sharp stick!
  12. Sneaking off this afternoon to see how it goes. I'm walking on a cane, so this may not be so good. River is running and supposedly some stripers have been spotted. Will let you know what happens.
  13. TN, VA, NC, NY, FL, SC, LA, Canada. Don't really need to leave TN, other than to get to salt water!
