Call this one " It was this big"

Got my son out fishing the other day. Sun was just breaking from the clouds as we were getting off the water.

Boat is an old aluminum 1970;s that I redid with help from tinboats.net! Still going strong.

8lb line to small for bass?

In cold water here in WI, I find prespawn bass happily take slow-falling soft plastics. Last year I used a big grub on a light jighead to 'helicopter' down to them. Just cast it on the fish in 4 ft of water and the lure would start a big spiral down. It was so fun watching them take that 'unusual' p...

Crappie Lures - HELP!!

I do pretty well on black crappie up here in WI. Live bait usually works, but if you don't want to mess around with it, buy some cubby mini mites (1/32 lures). I use these, or tubes on 1/16th oz. The mini-mites, I tie two on the line about 2 ft apart - to cover two water depths _and the double weigh...

Cautionary Words - Watch the weight of your mods...

So I built my boat out years ago. I used some heavy materials - 3/4" plywood for all the decking. a 2x12 for a stringer(?), etc. I fish with some 300lb+ guys and wanted everyone to feel comfortable. In the final setup I had 2 batteries (biggest I could find). One in the rear to start the engine and ...

Fresh pecans

This post made me hungry for pecans. I grew up in Texas and LOVED when Dad would come home with a big bag of pecans. We would spend forever cracking them. By the end of the bag, we were basically experts at pulling whole pecans out.

Why so many unfinished threads on builds?

I got to a point where I felt finished enough - and have been fishing the heck out of my boat since then. I think it is one of those things where you will never consider yourself to be finished, but able to enjoy your hard work to date.

If I ever truly finished my boat, I'd have to start another.

Found my Tinboats T shirt...

Was going out with a friend and happened upon my Tinboats Tshirt - so I wore it in hopes of a picture with a big fish. We were lucky and I hooked my longest smallmouth to date - 18 3/4". (I caught heavier/fatter this year though.) The picture doesn't do him justice. 10600525_10152301490988201_230393...

Tinboats Fanatsy Football 2013

I have the #1 and #2 quarterbacks on my team and am willing to trade the #2 for a top 8 WR.

All my WR's must have just signed big contracts cause they can't seem to score the ball anymore.

Tinboats Fanatsy Football 2013

All this commotion in the lower bracket levels. Let me inform you of this tidbit - I had 3 players on my team go for 95.5 points, which would have beaten 5 full teams this week.

This is what you are in for when you play Team Silvers

So I'm getting ready to order trophys for this league and my work league - and want to know what you guys want - a tongue-in-cheek trophy of an armchair quarterback - or more traditional football related trophy?

Classic Craigslist Lines

I'll admit, I haven't read every post but seeing that I just sold my tin boat last week, here's a quick recap of what happened on Craig's List. I actually got about ten calls, most were legitimate, some were scams. Being a nice guy, I gave the first caller first crack at the boat as he seemed very ...
