re: What is the best 300HP outboard on the market IYO? - Tigah D
[quote]Go to Venice marina and see what all the offshore charter captains run. 90% of them are Yamahas. That says a lot. [/quote] This, and the crabbers at other port towns. Honda and Suzuki are good engines but have less dealer network. A buddy recently repowered a bay boat with a 250 and went ...

re: Hopedale mixed bag - Tigah D
Good work! It's been tough down there lately with the westerly winds though I did get a good report from yesterday morning. Was supposed to go to the camp this weekend but opted to stay home with the ugly forecast. ...

re: In honor of me getting my wisdom teeth taken out in an hour... - Tigah D
Went in, met nurse, IV in, counted to 100 (but only got to 3) and woke up at home with the teeth gone. As far as I can recall, never saw a dentist that day, no one touched my mouth (while awake). Weird, wild experience but better than the horror stories I've heard of being awake for the chopping and...

re: What's the minimum number of shells you feel comfortable with duck hunting? - Tigah D
Box to box and a half usually, gotta account for some water swats on crips as well as any nutria or no-shoulder ops. Those of you taking a boxes on boxes need to hit the range. I took a 12 year old shooting a 20 gage on the youth hunt two years ago. I shite you not the kid fired 6 shells, we str...

re: School me on Braided vs Mono - Tigah D
I run 30 lb power pro on all my inshore reels, casting and spinning. Surprisingly the backlashes on a casting reel, I find, to be really easy to pull out, just keep pulling out loops from where the line overran the spool/vice versa, and take your time before just going in and chopping up line. Will ...

re: Shell Beach/ Hopedale update - Tigah D
Caught nice box of fish this AM for the Proctors rodeo, great time had by all. Not a drop of the 90% rain but wind forecast was 100% correct.....ripped all day. Fished marsh in usual fall areas and caught plenty reds and misc sheep, blk drum, etc. ...

re: Heading to Shell Beach later this week - Tigah D
Gonna be down there all weekend, take what the wind gives you. May have to take a trout haul off your plan and hit up the marsh for reds/blk drum/sheeps whatever. Adapt and conquer, cook & drink beer, watch CWS, repeat. ...

re: Question about Jack Plates and Trim Tabs on a Boat - Tigah D
Looks like most of you know already.....trim tabs a gamechanger. Thought they were a gimmick forever, didn't get em on first bay boat but have them on second, night and day difference. Learn to use them in varying conditions and they'll open up far more capability for a boat...

re: Power Pole...help me justify the expense - Tigah D
Yea the trolling motors we have now can already hold you in place but with no guarantees of specific orientation or positioning, we like to fish down wind off the bow when casting to points and coves n such, reefs etc so works well to anchor from stern via PP. ...

re: Power Pole...help me justify the expense - Tigah D
[quote]It is a game changer for sure[/quote] Readily admit that we recently got one on a boat that I didn't pay for, so did not feel the pain of the purchase. As someone who swore he didn't "need" one, I'll offer my findings so far in about a month of using it in the marsh because I agree, it is ...

re: Back from taxidermist - mottled duck - Tigah D
I dropped my bird off in January, it was ready in late April but I couldn't get over there to pick it up till second week of May....... That's pretty quick turnaround compared to many I've heard from. Also Kevin recommends using a feather duster to keep the dust off the mounted birds, go figure. ...
