  1. I have the same challenge. The Lund dealer wants of course "retail." I am not going down that path... I want something that fits into the "sport track" system so I don't have to drill holes. I found these on Amazon: Brocraft Lund Sport Track Bimini Top Mount/Canopy Mounts/Lund Boat Bimini Top Bracket which will fit into the sport track, but now need to decide on a manufacturer of the bimini. It would be great if someone could recommend some to look at.
  2. I am going to try the Sam's Club option. It makes sense based on the manufacturer. - Thanks for the insight! As far a Lithium goes, they scare the sh__ out of me. I work for UL and we test lithium battery packs all the time. Can you say BOOM? Poorly made battery packs just blow / catch fire all the time. (google the video's) I can survive buying several non-lithium batteries for years and still not make up the cost differential.
  3. Thought I would throw this one out there for a forum discussion. 1) My deep cycle battery (exclusively used to power the trolling motor) is now approaching two years. I am not having any issues with it (charges fine and performs fine) yet the two years of use have me thinking about getting a new one. If I do replace it I am looking for the best "value" (don't want to cheap out NOR have to go to the bank for a loan - nor do I want to go to my bride of 36 years for permission...) 2) I have a second battery in the boat for starting and deep cycle - powers the Helix and the live well. It too is approaching two years of use - with no issues. (I faithfully charge both after use.) So the question is I would like recommendations on 1) Pure deep cycle battery and 2) starting / deep cycle battery that will perform and NOT break budget.

  5. I used to fish Allatoona and had good luck on the stripes. Live shad on down and free lines, fishing right next to the dam - right at the barrier in the summer. In spring I used to run up the river and had great luck with down lined cut bait (shad.) Again shad is key - you'll have to throw the cast net in the coves OR under the lights at the marinas. Good luck!
  6. nice shots KwK! I may switch to the blue color instead of the "orange"....seems to show a little better. BTW, perfect eater size.
  7. I like the idea of a forum for screen shots. Seen some really crazy stuff pop up on Old Hickory - old bridge work etc. Get a little ghost-y feeling looking at some of this stuff...
  8. MK - love the anchor mode. Love the remote control (blue tooth.) I can sit in the back of the boat and troll - too cool.
  9. Welcome! Salt water translates well into fresh, but the nuances will drive you to drink. "Fresh" fish seem to be much less aggressive on the initial strike (there are exceptions) but all in all 'match the hatch" and you'll do fine. It's all about being out there and enjoying the time on the water.
  10. Lund 1625 Fury XL - no storage costs as it fits in the garage. No need for hole shots or to go fast. Stripes don't care what boat I am yanking them from; walleye's move slowly and the crappies are huddled - perfection!
  11. Fish Old Hickory out of Hendersonville. Spent years fishing MN (growing up), several years in GA (Alatoona) and several years fishing out of Tampa (inshore) and owned a 185CC Edgewater. (Sad day when I sold it...) Just bought a Lund to put around Old Hickory in. Firm believer in live bait - throw the cast net and feed the Stripes what they want. Happy to say I qualify for the senior discount...
