  1. Thank MC. I can only do it when I can get away, so as they say " A bad fishing is still better than a day at work" One year '88 I think, we killed them in the mouth of the salmon with SR9 Shad Raps. Couldn't keep em off the line. But that was then. I've never heard of anyone ever doing that since. It was one of those things where we just anchored up behind the break water, and had a ball.
  2. I was plnning a trip up next weekend. Probably put in in Oswego, or Mexico Point. Where is this hole you are talking about?
  3. Just caught this post BigMac. Cam shaft canbe replaced if there is approx. 30 inches between the front of the engine and the inside of the engine compartment. If not the engine will need to be pullled. It is easier to do on an engine stand then in the Engine well. You are going to need a lot more then just the CAM shaft. If you are the original owner of the rig, you know the history of how it was taken care of. If not, well, your shooting in the dark. From past experience with the 5.7 in boats, gas in the oil can be a big contributer to cam shaft and premature engine wear. A leaking carburatorcould be the cause or a diaphram in the fuel pump leaking. Like borderline said, a crate motor, may be a wise choice. PS, Putting used parts in like a cam shaft and lifters, isn't always a great idea. Ya might get lucky, but to do all that work, and then not have it work correctly!!!!! Besides, boat motors have specially ground CAM shafts because of their power band. Good luck...
  4. To eliminate the onboard tanks try a portable tank. This will isolate the issue as to boat fuel system or Engine. Ethanol breakdown in the tanks can be an issue. Also, in older boats the fuel line were designed for regular gas, not ethanol. The ethanol causes the rubber hoses to deteriate, which can lead to collapsing, or the rubber breaking down and causing a restriction.
  5. I have a 1 yr old Humminbird 597ci HD. I upgraded to the 598 ci SI because I wanted the Side Imaging. $350 and it's yours. The unit head and transducer are a year old, but the rest of the hardware is brand new. PM me if interested.
  6. Is the vent plugged on the fuel can?
  7. Isn't it kind of early for cabin fever to have set in?
  8. I have an 18' Fisher as well. Mine could use some TLC as well. I like the lite Grey grey as well. Anyone know where to get that color? Frank
  9. Welcome to the SIte Zack.
  10. Now that's a good point Mortigan! And a great question? So maybe we should let them spawn, do their thing, and stop all this combat fishing on the tribs? Course there are a lot of folks who would be out of work if that happened?
  11. Thanks Tim, I think your image got lost somewhere. But I get the reference. I've caught enough of the dark ones to remember the coloration. The meat also takes on a different color as well if my memory serves correctly. Not that nice pink you get from a King in the lake.
  12. I've seen the referral to Mud Hens? What the hell are Mud Hens and why the name?
  13. Sorry for your loss Ray. No better eulogy could have been written.
  14. Fish between the Piers guys. I was just chatting with my fishing buddy who was with me in '87 when a storm like this hit. I have never had so much fun as I did that weekend. Twelve ft waves were normal. But hooking up, and having the fish running across the face of the wave above you beyond the pier was a site to see. We are coming up tonight..... Tally hooo
  15. And the Governor went on vacation today. So for the next 14 daqys, there won't be any action on this. It has been on his desk for 10 days. That means a 6 day time period left to sign it. It totally amazes me when a new Anti Gun law can get enacted in just two weeks, and we can't get an extra line for fishing or a budget passed on time.
