De-pro'ing a Tracker

That's is some really clean work. Precise and neat. Looks really tight and professional. Really nice design.

Step pads

Ive been thinking along same lines lately. I've decided on some thick, textured self adhesive rubber strips... trimmed to whatever length and width. Saw some at tractor supply last week. Just run a few on top of trailer frame, where I step on it boat. Won't work on top of fenders, as they are plasti...

Bass fishing magazines??

Yeah, I see all of your points. Advertisement and all that. I guess what I'm talking about and wishing for is a thing of the past. Best reading about fishing is right here for the most part. Good points made here guys. Thanks..

Bass fishing magazines??

I don't know about anyone else, but I have long left fishing magazines, specifically bass fishing mags alone. I really can't relate to tournament fishing, either pro or amateur. I don't have or want an 60,000 dollar boat that goes mach1 and can carry 500 lbs of tackle. I don't like the fireworks...a...

Sea Nymph Bass Attacker or Bass Tracker Pro 17

I have had good luck with 3 trackers over the years. No issues at all really. My experience has been with newer models, 2010 was the first brand new one, and a 2019 grizzly. My first boat was a 94 tracker tadpole. A sweet lil 12' rig that was pretty, and caught everything that swam. I kept em all up...

Using two split rings to attach the rear hook on a crankbait

That's a fine idea! Simple and seems effective!

Using two split rings to attach the rear hook on a crankbait

How are the trebles set up? Link together? Like a chain? I thought at first you had two split rings, side by side..doubled up...but nah, can't be....or is it??

Transom saver questions...

I installed new transom saver Fri. Took it to lake sat/sun and I feel it's a whole different animal. Rig feels solid to my vehicle. No bounce,wiggle or anything else. I'm really glad I installed it. Thanks for your advice guys. Also, the guide ons I out on trailer really help landing boat on trailer...

Transom saver questions...

I agree. This kit here has a little plate/post deal you both thru bottom rail of trailer, then slide TS over the post. Secure with a captive pin, lower OB leg into plastic/rubber jaws, secure with bungee cord and your good to go. Same rig I had on my 2010 tracker 170. Had a 50hp on that rig and don'...

Transom saver questions...

That's rock simple! Thanks! I was way over thinking it. Makes sense now! A simple solution with a simple 2x4! I decided on a transom mount. Seems to make best scense for me. I rather transfer that weight to trailer I believe. I got my roller guide ons today... should really make a difference in gett...

Got out today

Some fine looking trout right there. Round here it's been blazing hot, now, within a week or two, it's actually fall. I doubt think the bass know...very slow bite for me. I'd be very happy with a few rainbows like that. Seems like a neat way to fish too... trolling deep for trout.

Transom saver questions...

Alright then...this makes sense and confirms my initial thoughts... Transom saver inbound. I like the 2x4 idea, I just can't picture it. Any way to possibly post a pic or sketch? Thanks again guys for your advice. Will definitely be making a change to how I trailer my rig.

Transom saver questions...

I have a 2019 grizzly 1648 SC with a Merc 40hp 4 stroke outboard. It didn't come with a transom saver,instead you raise it up, and switch a lock over to keep it up. What's your feelings,experiance or opinions on this? Personally, I think the transom saver is a better deal, but before I install one, ...
