    For fishing a sit-on-top (SOT) is probably best. Sit-In (SINK) is better in cooler weather and if you're more interested in getting where you want to be rather than slowly trolling along. You'll be less wet in a SINK and more in SOT; you'll be more exposed in a SOT and less in a SINK but a SINK gets HOT in the sun unless you have a really wide canopy.

    Oddly, Walmart has a very nice SOT fisher for around $400; less if you order online and opt for the non-fishing equipped version (which I think still has a rod holder). You can customize any kayak with all sorts of accessories as you choose, and they're very often far better than anything you get with a kayak if you buy it as a fishing kayak. The Walmart one, color aside, looks exceptionally like my old Perception, which was much more expensive. IMO if you can find a used one, do that. They all get scratched up and beat on, so there's no sense in wasting money for 10 minutes of pretty.

    Aaron Rodgers, who thinks he's gonna be a Bronco? I mean, it's where aging players go to win that coveted ring...
    I'd like to see him in the orange and blue.

    Getting a new windshield in the van.
    The darn thing has rusted clear across the top of the cab, might be a long minute as they perform surgery on it. Tech was laughing and shaking his head. :fingerscrossed:

    Anyone have recommendations for a hitch mounted platform style bike rack that won’t break the bank? Let me know if you have a preferred vendor too please. TIA

    Basically you are looking at "cheap" or "expensive".

    I just picked up this Kuat Transfer V2 about a month ago. Great for the price I paid which was $279 for the one bike rack. Only one I could find in stock that didn’t break the bank. Would recommend.

    Shout out to Novus Glass. They did what so many others refused to do, repaired the rust strip and replaced my windshield. :thumbsup:
    It's amazing how new glass makes driving a shitbox more enjoyable.

    just wait until you are the "age." Then you too will be the definition you so loosely broadcast on those of the age you may, or may not SEE. Haha. Hope you live to be blind by age!
