I picked up a couple this fall at a local outdoors expo, but didn't get to try them out since it was too late for open water. I'm not sure if they were really out on the market before freeze up.

There's something else going on. A 5" helix won't draw that much juice. Typically I'll run a 12" and 9" graphs along with livewell pumps on intermittent recirculation after initial fill, and I'll...

Sharrow finally came out with pricing info. Looking at $4500 for aluminum and $9000 for stainless steel. I can't say I'm surprised at those numbers when the production method is 5 axis CNC...

I bought an Elite TI ice pack that I used last winter with an HDS 7 Gen3. I think the non-touch Gen1 and Gen2 versions of the HDS7 are a little bit taller, so it might be a tight fit. My HDS 7...

The 1990's 5.7 V8 likely had around 250 horsepower and 300 ft-lbs of torque. The newer 5.3's have a little over 350HP and 380 ft-lbs of torque. Combine that with a modern 8 or 10 speed transmission...

Get a Drotto on the trailer, it'll make launching and loading solo quite a bit easier regardless of whether it's a 17' aluminum or a 21' glass.

I had an old 17' aluminum followed by a newer 18-1/2' aluminum and now a 20' glass. As for the reasons behind the changes, here's a quick rundown.

The 2050 Reata was only rated for 225 before a certain year. Not sure exactly when the changeover happened but I think it was after 2010.
