  5. Legacy- 2017 Deer Season

    Blackthorn is loose. I think it would be great if it came in pellets though. Cleanup after shooting Blackhorn is soooooooooo much easier than cleanup after black powder. No soap and water, just use hoppes or your other favorite cleaning solvent. Loading between shots when using Blackhorn is also much easier than when using black powder. As long as Blackhorn is available, I won’t be using black powder. Rusty Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Patience, Persistence, and a lot of LUCK!

    Thanks for passing on the small ones ! I'm having a similar season to the one you described, now I'm waiting for a similar end. ! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. That's the best fish picture I've ever seen on this site. Kudos. Thanks - Rusty
  8. My Fishmaster does not have trim tabs. There is a 'doel-fin' type plate on the cav. plate. Thanks - Rusty
  9. Thanks guys. Guess I'll be checking with a Merc/ Starcraft dealer. I see that extension kits are available if it comes to that. Thanks - Rusty
  10. Thanks Trophy, My best measurement from the keel, to the top of the transom, where the 150 is attached is 25 1/2". The Starcraft website lists the transom height as 25 ". My best measurement of the shaft length, from the bottom of the cavitation plate, to the top of the transom, where the motor is attached, is 22 1/2". The specs for the motor show that it comes in a 20" version, and a 25" version. Based on my measurement, I'm not certain which model I have. The model number from the sticker on the motor is - 1150f23hd. Based on the measurements I took, it seems as if the shaft is too short, which would explain the issues I'm having. I think I'll take a trip to the local dealer, or make some calls. Thanks - Rusty Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Howdy all, I'm writing seeking advice/info regarding a possible fix to an issue I'm having with cavitation similar to that described by Trorun. I have a 2014 Starcraft Fishmaster 196 with a 150 Mercury four stroke, and a 9.9 mercury four stroke kicker, which is mounted on the starboard side. My issue is with cavitation when I put the motor in gear and try to bring the boat up on plane. It seems as if the prop isn't getting the correct 'grip' on the water. The boat will eventually plane, however, when I then throttle back slightly, the rpms seem to drop, and the boat seems to begin going faster. I apologize for not having rpm and mph info for reference. I believe I've had the boat up to at least 40 mph, but when moving, I'm usually doing 25 ish. Currently the 150 is mounted in the second hole from the top. The cavitation plate is just about 3.5 inches above the very bottom of the hull. There is a 15", 17* prop on the motor. Would lowering the motor just one hole make any kind of noticeable difference ? The holes seem to be about 1" apart. Also, if it does need to be lowered, any recommendations on a good shop in the watertown/Henderson/Clayton/A Bay to do the work ? Thanks in advance- Rusty Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
