I have an aluminum bass boat that I would like to show some TLC. Looking for feedback on using a liner type coating(Rhino or Line-X) as opposed to a marine paint. Not sure if or how using a liner would affect overall performance.
Looking to make a weekend trip in the New Orleans/Grand Isle area to chase specs and reds. I'll be fishing a 16ft alum bass boat so I'm not looking to go out too far(maybe if there's a platform or 2 that would be accessible and fairly easy to reach) mainly looking for marsh and open water. As of now, I'm leaning towards Fouchon/Grand Isle. Any advise as to areas that can be safely fished in a vessel of this size is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Looking to purchase my first fish finder / GPS combo. Any opinions(just that) on which features work well(DI, SI, etc.,). Not looking for many bells and whistles, just the basics for now to find fish and marking waypoints. Unit will be mounted on a 16ft bass used for inshore sw and fw fishing. Any opinions are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
I have a 40 hp Merc that hasn't run since November(gas left in tank with no treatment). Put muffs on and started engine with no problems but it wont run at idle. After starting, I can get down to approximately 1000rpm before motor kills. I would like to try running Seafoam Motor Treatment to see if this will correct the issue without having to tear anything down to resolve this issue. Any advise is greatly appreciated.
Looking to purchase new battery(s) for my boat. I have a 16ft bass boat and I would like to lighten the weight in the boat as much as possible. Currently there is a 2 battery setup but I would like to go to a one battery setup. I'm looking at an agm type dual purpose battery for this purpose. Any information and advise is greatly appreciated.
I'm looking into purchasing a boat in the near future but I have a few questions that some of you may be able to help shed some light on. For starters, I fish fresh and saltwater about equally but may be inclined to do more saltwater after f purchase. Second, is Center Console(Bay Boat) vs. Bass Boat(Aluminium-Tracker or Express). Third is the size. I would like to stay around the 17-18 ft range as I won't really have a more than 3 passengers tops at any time. I fish the waters from Venice to Houma area as well as the Atchafalaya Basin. Any and all opinions are welcomed. Thanks.
Wife and I looking for a nice place to go for Bream and maybe Sac's this weekend. Been a while as far freshwater fishing so I'm not too familiar with bank fishing spots for Bream and Sac's. This time of year I would be saltwater fishing. Anywhere within an hour or so of the Plaquemine(Iberville Parish)/ Baton Rouge area. Any advice would be appreciated. Not asking for anyone's 'Honey Hole', just a nice place to catch a few keepers. Thanks and be safe on the water this weekend.
