Re: Sadly, we lost a fellow boatbuilder

It seems like last week I took him to my secret mahogany buying spot and he helped flip my boat. Very sad. Rest in peace my friend

Re: Hello from the Outer Banks of North Carolina

I had a lot of people that thought I couldn't do it too, that makes me laugh. as for talking to the builders around there, I just walked into the shops with the doors open and walked around, eventually someone will notice your not supposed to be there and you can start up a conversation about boat b...

Re: Hello from the Outer Banks of North Carolina

In my opinion you are in the best place in the world to build a boat. The builders around you build some of the best sportfishing boats made, and can be recognized in any marina. I talked to a few builders down there before I started my boat. With the people on this forum and the builders around you...

Re: S.S.Minnow on Gilligan's Island

I read something about this a while back and if I remember right the one in the second season is a 38-40' Wheeler. Not sure what the one in the first season was.

Gas Tank Questions

The gas tanks that I installed in the boat I'm building came out of the donor I had. Thinking they were already in a boat they should be fine. Well now that I'm getting closer to finishing I trying to make sure everything is done right. I read that fuel tanks need a sticker that says they were inspe...

Re: Trolling top water lures // wakes

Every bonita I ever caught was used for bait to bail dolphins. Are you using a planer to get your spoons deep? If not that might be why your not having luck with them. I don't think I ever caught a Spanish mackerel on anything else.

Re: Trolling top water lures // wakes

I forgot about Spanish mackerel. For them we run two rods, one in each corner. The reels are filled with 20lb braid down to a planer then ten feet of 20lb fluorocarbon with a Clark spoon trolled at 4-5 knots. I haven't spent much time targeting blackfin but have caught them when kite fishing. As for...

Re: Trolling top water lures // wakes

The only time we pull just lures is when we are fishing for blue marlin. We run the biggest lures on the flat lines. The right side is on the face of the second wake and the left side is on the face of the third wake. Next is big teasers just ahead of them two lures run off the outriggers. The short...
