  1. Is there any trick to getting the belt tightened on the starboard motor. 5.7 l merc. The tensioner is on right side and I’m black and blue trying to reach over motor to get tight enough. Any tricks would help. My masculinity is in shambles currently.
  2. 1 color of lead core is a pretty killer setup with a spoon.
  3. Thank you for the effort on setting this up. Missed last year because of date change and Covid. Very excited about the two day event.
  4. I’m also a fan of the Daiwa rods. The medium action rod we use for Spring Salmon and Walleye on Erie.
  5. I wasn’t going to mention it but fishing with my father and friends in tournament’s it drives me crazy when they can’t get board off in a realistic time frame.
  6. Thinking of switching over to the ninja boards from my church TX 22. I fish kings in spring and the charter walleyes out of Dunkirk rest of year. I loved my church boards but think the ninja board one hand release is pretty handy. Some of my clients are hands on and want to take boards of, or do when I’m netting or getting fish off deck. Anybody made this switch over.
  7. Anybody have the older Rynowsky in Pink/purple and Firetiger. The Firetiger ones will have a glitter finish and red eye. Also the 3” black/silver chatter sticks. PM please.
  8. I run medium action 7.5 ft Great Lakes model diawai with saltist for lead core.
  9. Congratulations, this report makes me feel better same out of Olcott all weekend really tough bite inside.
  10. You have any pictures.
  11. I had a similar situation could not figure out what issue was. I have a closed cooled system and the water canister seal had a small rip in it. Just enough to pull air in system. Would make the motor get warm because my water pump would loose prime. My guess you are getting air somewhere.

    Auto pilot issue

    I didn’t even know you could?
  13. I have a ray marine st5000 it will no longer run at low speeds. Ran great all last year. It’s like it’s way to slow to react. At high speed seems to work properly. Read manual and can’t really seem to find and answer. It stays on auto and kicks in occasionally but it’s not maintaining course. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  14. It is but I have an oil pressure gauge on dashboard. I’m replacing impeller will it’s in yard and temp sending unit. Impeller If not needed to be changed will end up needed to be changed at some point. Better now then while out on lake.
  15. Thank you I have read about issues in manifold.
  16. I got you I first read this post incorrectly. Thank you that’s good advice.
  17. Thanks for response it’s on a 3000 exspress pursuit impellers flat out suck to exchange.
  18. It is twins but each motor has a different sensor. I originally thought impeller but I have water, maybe it’s just getting week.
  19. 5.7l 350 mpi horizon mercruisrr 2003. my port motor as soon as motor gets to 3500 the over heating sensor alarm comes on not running just below this the motor will run as normal. I’m getting water because the top of the motor stays cool and have coolant. Gauge is reading under the overheating mark. I did some research seems like temp sending might be issue. Anything else I could look at? Or suggestion? thanks in advance guys.
  20. So a few years back on this page I read how some guys were tying a 10 ft or so mono section after there wire to prevent pig tailing. Basically allowing your wire to be stored tightly on reel. I also have started doing this with my braid divers not because of the initial reason but to give a little stretch to your setup once a fish gets close to boat. I believe this has led to less fish lost by people on my boat. Theory is that there is a little more give then tying directly braid / wire to dipsey. Also it’s easier to grab to help the person with rod work around other rods and rigger wire.
  21. Yes. I run a lot of one and two colors on Ontario browns and Erie eyes. Leave my mono reels a little short. 1000 yd spool of stealth core handy. If you need a 1 color it’s pretty easy to rig up.
  22. I am from New York and am all for opening it up to Canadian waters. You no longer have to do anything to cross just as long as you don’t go to shore and even then it’s a simplistic process. I have had great experiences with observers on my boat but we are pretty laid. This tournament is very well run and personally cannot understand why there is not more entrants. On Erie we have waiting list for tournaments of a 100 boats with similar money. I also have no problem on allowing the Canadians to pay like in the post in order to attract more contestants. I think eliminating the observer will increase small boat guys and folks whom might travel. It’s uncomfortable in some cases to be observer. We have had women twice and this years I’m a nervous wreck making sure the toilet is clean at 5am. Both were great but its uncomfortable for both parties. Especially if someone actually tries to cheat that observer is in weird place. Lie detectors are good deterrent for cheating. My opinion on boat checks is they are a waste of time. If you have a 30 ft boat you could find a place to hide fish. On the lie detector they should test 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Then randomly draw 2 or 3 more in top 10.
