re: The Official Kayak Thread - The Last Coco
[quote]Why do some of you Yakkers go full blown?[/quote] Presumably because they feel it helps them catch more fish? I run a depth finder in open water but no power pole. But sometimes, especially when fishing smaller bodies of water or rivers, I ditch all electronics and really minimize my gear. T...

re: Need a new laptop for the wife. Trying to stay under $500 - The Last Coco
[quote]A gaming laptop is usually heavy and runs very hot. So if she plans on using on her lap, they usually aren't ideal. And the batteries suck on them[/quote] Fair enough. What's the main issue with the regular HP Pavilion I posted? Is it the HDD instead of an SSD? My wife says she wants ...

re: Need a new laptop for the wife. Trying to stay under $500 - The Last Coco
Or this beast on sale for $450. Retail was $1700 apparently. Again, probably more than I need: [link=(https://www.walmart.com/ip/Laptop-NVIDIA-i7-8750H-HDD-GP63-GP63LEOPARD077-RAM-GTX-6-1060-GeForce-READY-16GB-1TB-MSI-SSD-RGB-10-KB-Leopard-077-256GB-6G-Performance-VR-15-6-Gamin/848509404?irgwc=1&...

re: Need a new laptop for the wife. Trying to stay under $500 - The Last Coco
Or this one for $390 according to Brickseek. Seems more in line with what I'm looking for from a portability standpoint: [link=(https://www.walmart.com/ip/HP-Pavilion-15-Laptop-15-6-Touchscreen-Intel-Core-i5-8250U-Intel-UHD-Graphics-620-1TB-HDD-16GB-Intel-Optane-memory-8GB-SDRAM-15-cs0051wm/32257...

re: Need a new laptop for the wife. Trying to stay under $500 - The Last Coco
Thoughts on this laptop? Brickseek indicates it is available nearby for $250. It is a little on the large side but still weighs less than her MBP. Seems to be a gaming laptop from maybe 2018? I gather that it is more than I'm looking for, but aside from the form factor is there a big downside to thi...

[quote]bluebarracuda[/quote] Thanks for the link. Are those specs good baselines to use? 8th gen i5 and 8gb ram? Touch screen I dont care about and 128gb would.be way more than enough storage, but I am out of touch on processors and general ram needs....

re: Baitcasting Rod Recs - The Last Coco
[quote]I'm a Fan of Falcon- Buucoo series. [/quote] I love the feel of those rods, but I'm a cork die-hard so I find it hard to fish with the EVA foam. I know it is silly, but it just doesn't feel or look right to me....

re: This is not the same LSU team from the past - The Last Coco
Anyone (Coach O included) who isn't cognizant of and actively planning to avoid a let down/"trap" game after that emotional game in T-town is foolish. Do I think we will have any problems with OM? No. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't be aware of it and guard against it. History doesn't repeat i...

re: Cold weather gear - The Last Coco
Layering with merino wool is your best bet for active cold weather activities like hiking. Get yourself a high quality pair of them and you'll be way more comfortable than in lined jeans. ETA: depending on just how cold itll be, adding puffy pants on top is another option: [link=(https://www.f...

re: Rifle for Deer Hunting - The Last Coco
You can buy the scoped version of the Remington 783 for $400 I think. I dont like Remingtons business practices, but the 783 is ridiculously accurate for its price point. It isnt smoothe and polished, but review after review has indicated that it is a tack driver....

re: Ozonics (and scent control in general) - The Last Coco
If you're in an enclosed space (ground blind preferably although a box stand is still somewhat applicable), then it works. If you're hunting our or a ladder, climber, tripod or lockon, then it likely isn't worth the effort. As someone stated previously, consistent wind direction is a huge help....

re: Up to date Imaging - The Last Coco
Between google maps, google earth (yes they sometimes have different imagery), and Bing maps you'll likely have the best free maps available. BING seems to use the same maps that ESRI offers in its apps so it will be different from google. I'd toggle between the 2 depending on your area....
