  1. Good on you for the release nice fish and a great lesson for the youngster. Thanks for sharing .
  2. My buddy has a Platinum 150 with twin turbos great mileage and lots of power but it cost him $3000 bucks to replace a waterpump . Crazy world today I am glad I am old.
  3. Funny my 2013 5.3 switches back and forth between 4 to 8cyl seamlessly. That feature is why I bought the truck.
  4. Hey Gill T you have to get out of the office more often . Regular service with the proper oil and filter the lifter problem goes away .
  5. They look good enough to put hooks on them . Big Kings ?
  6. Yes i have done it with the 800 and 840 displays
  7. In my IMHO torpedoes are just a expensive sinker .
  8. They are DigiTrol 1 Mag 10 late eighty production . I have six of them
  9. I have a friend that bought a 8HP high thrust last year , he is a very fussy particular person when it comes to spending his money.. He is more than pleased with the Tohastu . I fished with him a few times and his 8HP kicker runs as well as my Yammy 8 and 9HP high thrust kickers. Good product and price I would buy it . They run much smoother than your 6HP
  10. Save yourself a headache and replace it .
  11. drilled hole with a o ring between the upper and lower units
  12. They should be illegal they make a hole like you have to see to believe . Marginal hits still give good results plus they fly like darts.
  13. We have had good success with majors in 100 to 120 ft lately your drivers and weights should be fine . Pre stage fish starting to show up .
  14. Just pocketed $1500 with a green pro troll with mountain dew tape and a pro am fly at a small tourney.
  15. Love them both some days one works some days the other . Both produce lots of big fish with A-TOM-MIK flies .
  16. The 383 works is great set up but a bit much for a alpha outdrive as the Alpha II maxes out at 300hp. If you have a Bravo drive go for it.
  17. X2 on the horse spray Bronco or most any brand use it on the horses in the barn a application lasts about 4 hrs. Most brands are citronella based.
  18. HM hit it on the head did two trailers that way , inexpensive easy fix no special tools needed and you bleed it by pumping the trailer coupler
  19. I have a dozen Talora lead core rods for my coppers fished them hard for years . One bad guide and that was my fault but Shimano gave me warranty on my screw up . I use 7ft 8ft and 9ft like them all.
  20. Flat lining Cleo's and Fireplugs out of a 12ft tinny for the early Coho stocks in the seventies with a Mitchell 300 spinning reel and have a King burn and blow up the reel. Andy Reekers , Alpena diamonds , South Port slammers , Dr Hooks , North Port Nailers , Manistees, Badgers, Dandy Glows , Lindy Poptails, Sitexpaper graph Micrologic loran C and big kings in the eighties and lots of them never had to fish and didn't know how to fish deep back then and 8lb cannonballs were the norm.
  21. Not sure about older and wiser but one thing for sure somebody will be taking our place. And when my time comes if I can't take my boat and tackle with me I am not going
  22. I own a few Garmin high end units all with base maps the cards I use are the vision card , bluecharts , lakekeview Hd card and a navionics great lakes card and I have not had that problem . I am not sure if the entry level units with installed cards have the same detail that I have with my cards but I sure have not had that sort of problem but my charts are all area specific . The fishing chart and travel charts have completely different details both should be available on the card.
