Re: Any Stick Marsh gator hunters out there?

I second that on getting the lay of the land prior to your hunt . Finding your way back to the ramp could be challenging , and yes like above said lots palm stumps etc . Bonus is its a great excuse to tear some bass up !

Re: Running new ground

a good swedging tool for copper lugs is alot better than soldering from a safety standpoint. Loose connection creates heat , soldered connections can fall out . Hence why battery cables in the marine industry are crimped some both soldered and crimped .

ok first question , is your vent built into the cap of the fill? The perko all in one caps are horrible they make a spacer to shim the fill up so water doesnt puddle .
