  1. Not sure of your post ? #1 is a tranny cooler + a tranny cooler gauge ! At max towing cap your issue is the transmission ! #2 Engine temp ! May need a bigger rad ! #3 Opening doors ? I like to park easy and walk !
  2. You have to go out to the " blue zone " 300 + fow and start at ~ 100 ft.dn. and come up in 20 ft. levels till 50 ft dn then change lures : Spoons are the easiest to use and colour rules ! You will get more information on "SPOONPULLERS" site for your area !
  3. Great post BrahmaBull 71 ! [ reflects the value of this site ] . Bottom line as you post $ 8K ! Is the LUND worth the difference? Resale value ?? Not sure what you mean by " big water boat " ? I have been on Lake O. Lake Erie & Niagara river since 1984 in a 16 ft. StarCraft ; I have to pick my days .
  4. Start with BASIC obedience puppy classes ! Every dog learns at it's own pace ! 10% of dogs are untrainable and end up as pets .
  5. As previously posted : YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR 1 I I would not buy a Tracher boat ! Quality costs but sometimes too much !
  6. Invest in a kicker ! depending on hours on the water fuel savings will pay for it along with an added safety factor !
  7. Start by going on a charter !
  8. Great topic : #1 as previously posted every boat is a compromise ! #2 Don't buy a ticket to the " poor house " ! I have seen more than once since 1984 . [ if I was in the market that 22ft Islander would work for me for fishing ie. light an easy tow good fuel economy and stable platform for fishing ]
  9. Good topic : May depend on the area you fish , from Port Dalhousie to Port Weller ORIGINAL NK 28s in Black/purple tape silver or white back then mix and match colours !
  10. I use large ZipLoc bags for each setup !
  11. Original NK 28s spoons ; Moonshine spoons : SpinDoctor dodger with Atomic flies to start , Salmon fishing ain't cheep be prepared !
  12. So far only one KO on a #5 J-Plug Flo- white black ladder back !
  13. I will run J-Plugs all year ; a #5 white/flo took a 14 lb. brown trout in the SCG&F summer derby [ would have been first place but a week late !]
  14. Glad it was a simple fix ! It appears you diagnosed the problem ! I forgot to mention a blocked exhaust on a 2cycle engine which burns oil with gas ; may still be a plan on an old engine ie drop the lower unit an view the exhaust ports carbon buildup can be readily visible and easily removed ! Also I would change the impeller [ water pump] if it has not been done to avoid overheating the engine.
  15. # 1 Check compression with tester that screws into the block ie no hose ! #2 Rebuild the carbs #3 Clean all electrical contacts Let us know the result
  16. Thanks for post. A definite maybe ; I launch from Port Weller and have been on Lake O. since 1984 . Send a PM .
  17. Try SPOONPULLERS site for Canadian south shore reports : " tightlips" has not changed since I started in1984 [ as in life many more takers than givers ]
  18. The only problem I have had with my Remington 870 is that it shoots were I point it !
  19. If you have to ask get a Remington 870 3 in chamber !
