a couple questions

2 posts in this topic

Hey guys, a couple questions for everyone. When traveling long distances with a boat(15hrs)is it necessary to use a motor towing bracket with the kicker motor? Has anyone used the traveling motor covers they have for motors(I am using a 115hp)? Also, where do people recommend putting their flat, round GPS antenna on their boat, does it have to be extended into the air? I am working with a 17.5'alumacraft so I have room to place it just to the right of the steering wheel on the 8" lip on the edge of the boat. Also, regarding the Navionics detailed maps you can buy, do they have maps for any smaller lakes in Ontario besides LOW and the other large lakes? Smaller lakes such as Lac Seul or Minitaki? Thanks for any help guys.

I use a one piece canvas craft cover for storage and towing.The motor covers should work if they can be straped down tight.
As for the GPS antenna, any place even with or above the gunwhales should work.A lot of pro;s mount theirs on the gunwhale just in front of the windshield.Be sure to mount it some where so not to be used as a step, or it will get boke or someone will slip on it.
I picked up a few maps on Lac Seual a few years back, right from the ministry of natural resorces.But I found a place here in the metro area to order from.
The Hudson Map company has everthing you need, also check this site for maps as Rick may have a sponcer to sell them.
Good fishin, Benny

    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
