  2. They are not there like they used to be. The big rocks in front of braddocks get fished hard.

    Gobies changed things, we used to catch them trolling small crank baits. Big tube jigs seem to work better now.

    You will catch a 20 incher every once in a while then thats it. No small ones is a bad sign.

    If you use bait, use a drop shot rig keeping your hook 18 inch off bottom.

  3. Nice looking lakers :yes: Curious to know what the setup on the bow rail is there in the background. Planner board masts? Made from level wind reels and aluminum tubing? Looks cool. What is the boat you are on? Looks like a center console...maybe a bayliner trophy? I had one and traded it in Spencerport last year. Thanks for the pics...good job...lots of Lakers this year so far.


    The boat is a key west center console from North Carolina, my friend the owner of the boat is a welder so the aluminum tubing and penn fishing reels made a good planer board system. The reels are attached with stainless hose clamps around the stainless tube.

    He put countersunk rod holders on the bow and the angle is perfect.

    The penn reels are spooled with 100lb test mono for the boards.

  4. I think L&M is right.

    It is the beginning of the end. You can adjust it for a while but a new one is on the horizon.

    Not the end of the world just normal wear and tear.

    While your having it replaced look closely at your bellows they will be next :)

  5. Kwatchi look at your gas tank hose line and inside your gas tank. The new blend of gasoline tends to break down the rubber hoses and plastic fittings on certain gas tanks. We had three plastic gas tanks with flakes in them that eventually plugged up the carbs on our outboards.

    The pick up tube on the gas tanks just fell apart.

    A product called Sea Foam will help keep your carbs and fuel system in good working order after you clean them.

    It is a liguid you pour in your gas. I use it in a 115 hp outboard i troll with and it has made a big difference. About every fourth tank of gas i use it.

  6. Do you remember how many screws to install the transducer? Im not crazy about drilling holes in my boat. I have 2 now. Thanks BP

    BP If you dont want to drill more holes use 3M marine adhesive fast cure 5200 to help secure/stick the mounting plate.

    It is a very good product to seal up old screw holes too. Sold at marine stores and i think Wallmart.
