    I got mine (grey snosuit) last weekend for 300 bucks (suit and bibs). I really like it.

    How Do You Load Your Portable?

    I just got a 500 lb capacity hitch carrier from Harbor Freight for 59 bucks. I am gonna put a 5/8 piece of board on it and strap down my house. I think it should work ok. thoughts? http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=92655

    Chip and Garmin Nuvi

    what kinda gps/depth finder do you have? I converted my big lowrance into a portable gps with a genz box and battery. If I can do it with that, it can be done with any gps.

    What is your #1 heater?

    I have used a sunflower, little buddy and big buddy. The little buddy is ok for anything over 20 degrees. If it gets any colder and you may be chilled. A sunflower can crank out the heat but I have many burn holes in my jacket from it. The big buddy really gets the job done. It is small enough to put in one corner of a yukon and heats it well below zero. 99 bucks is a good price and I would recommend it.

    Flasher Info from Scheels

    I have an old fl-8 vex that is ok. I wish it had the zoom function but oh well. The marcums are nice, I have used those before. The ones I really like are those new hummingbird ones. Those seem to be way better then anything else out there.

    Which engine to buy?

    I have a 115 yamaha and love it. Mine seems to have more pop compared to a friend's 115 merc on similar rigs.

    what do you pull your boat with?

    Don't get a 4runner...bad on gas and expensive to fix. Check out the Pilots. They get great mileage, last forever and plenty of room.

    Juan....it is C. The trick is to buy reels and rods separately or tell her you got it on clearance. I bought 2 new st. croix's last year to pair with the 2 reels I bought earlier. just make sure they are on different cc bills.
