    What do I need for this bearing?

    Washing the boat the otherday and noticed a cap came off my trailer hub. Not sure if its just the cap missing or what. The other hub looks different. Here is pics of both hubs. Trailer is an ez loader. The hub with the spring and zerk seems to be fine. It's the other one with the weird nut and...

    Heading out to cape junken and back tommorow.

    The water/weather looks to goodto go to work tommorow (Monday). I'm going to shoot over to cape junken and try for halibut and rocks. I got a small boat, so not too many forecasts where I feel like trying to head out that far. But I've had it in some 4 and 5 footers and 6 foot swells and I...

    Homer has been tough to get halibut

    I have been out of homer twice this year. Having a real hard time getting any halibut of decent size. By decent size i mean over 10 pounds. Not that I know of any special spots or anything but it always seemed that one could fish anywhere out in the bay and just catch fish and always come home...

    Where can I get this shrimp bait can?

    These came with my boat. I think my dog took off with one. Where can I find one? I have some others but these seem to work great. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    What about these holes?

    One thing I didn't like is how the transom area of my boat fills with water while at rest. Seems like 20 gallons sloshed around in there. Should I plug these? Pic is only of one but there is one at the other side. Unfortunately they ran the transducer cable through the other. So before I tear...

    Go/No go ocean conditions

    In case no one knows already, I'll be running a river runner, 21' with outboard. I'd like to go out of homer and find some halibut. I'll never venture farther than compass rose and seldovia will probably be the farthest I go for the most part. When reading bouy data what are some red flags? Say...

    What is this for?

    210 Alaskan River Runner good for jet?

    Is this going to be a good hull for a jet? I thought they had to have flat bottoms for that. Option two I'm thinking is a hydraulic transom lift and put a lowater pickup on the outboard and just use a prop Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    hewscraft sportsman or sea runner with Outboard jet

    I'm in the market for I believe a Hewescraft sportsman in the 18 foot range, or searunner. How do these boats perform with a jet? I see a few here and there with jets on them.. I was just under the impression that a flat bottom is almost a necessity with a outboard jet. Also 20K for a 18...

    Info For March Bison hunting at Farewell needed

    I need some ideas about how to get to the hunt area. I've already dug up all 6 old threads. Snowmachine up the Iditarod? This sounds gear intensive, time consuming and risky due to mechanical failure/no snow. If I did this would I just fly back with everything? That seems to make the most...

    who's hunting the opener?

    Man I haven't been this excited for grouse season in a long time. Got me a new hunting dog and can't wait to try him out. He's only trained to retrieve but still should be interesting and fun! I think I'll hit up everything between here and petersville.

    making blinds

    So how are you guys making your blinds? Especially out at the flats where there are no trees? Do you need just a front wall or do you need some sort of roof and back wall? Are you sitting or standing mostly? IF sitting what do you use?

    Tunnel Jon with jackplate and prop

    How would a 1860 tunnel jon work with a Jackplate and prop? I kinda am thinking of getting away from my jet. For the most part it is unnecessary for where I go. One spot I go, the chatanika, its pretty shallow for a mile or two. Depending on the year I've seen it as shallow as a few inches with...
