  1. I might let someone borrow an auger but it wouldn't be my nil's. Them blades cost me too much. Lol good karma too you for sure!
  2. Just looked everywhere. Nobody I've ever delt with has any in stock. There are a bunch of scam sites that say there in stock but I wouldn't even try most of them. This site seems ok. https://fishntech.com/humminbird_xi_9_1521.html but I never used them before but take Paypal. If they don't work out there are whole kits available at most places still. If you don't have a case and mount for it the kits are around $230-$250 with the case and transducer. Not sure if they come with a battery but I'll tell you these things eat a lot of power. A regular battery won't last a full day. I've got spares for long trips but a lithium would be a good idea if you fish 8+ hrs. Also try to remember to dim the light and try to run a black background on traditional sonar.
  3. I have both on 2 of my helix units. The 1521 is a bit better but both work fine. The 1521 is selling for more than it's worth at this moment. I will see if I can find either for a decent price.
  4. Ice was 4". It was the best I've ever done at braddocks. Switched jigs and spoons in every color tipped with waxies or perch eyes. Only 5 on the jig rod. All the other perch and all the jumbos came on tipdowns with fatheads. Tipdowns are deadly on the ponds and I'll out fish almost anyone who don't run them. Mine are homemade.
  5. I fished braddocks. That might have been me you seen. 15 perch 9+.... 30+ dinks.....1 pike 22" or so. Could barely walk on cranbo in a few spots so not sure if the perch are in there. It's not the water level that screwed up the ponds. When the lake levels were high the other year they used machines to block off the channel to keep the water from flooding into the ponds. That's been removed and I'd bet there are perch making there way in there but I don't know for sure.
  6. I could find more if needed. What you using them for? Decoy weights or drop weights on the junk lines? The lake Michigan guys really like them on there junk lines. Do you want wire eyes or swivels? I got a guy that will make custom cnc molds but it might take some time to get him to do it.
  7. Try these.... https://www.ebay.com/itm/125079053845?hash=item1d1f4ae615%3Ag%3A1LUAAOSweHteCSa-&LH_BIN=1 Or https://www.ebay.com/itm/140477592571?_trkparms=ispr%3D1&hash=item20b51df3fb%3Ag%3ABr4AAOxyZw5RZHfY&amdata=enc%3AAQAGAAACkPYe5NmHp%2B2JMhMi7yxGiTJkPrKr5t53CooMSQt2orsS9d9gBrkNbRQtRn8MVXnYktGVBdErdfN%2BaKk9ddU91JANGfh9McNJkGfCy4qjlfnvu%2FVzIspBw%2BCREwhC7RhV34B3IP1Cmkv6IyK3QxADFJHVLfoZBMBvdxdaMGD9MkIbaxgnGztDG23mtBBhU3L8piAghQEb8T%2BAHgbRux4h0TLR9qzenGaQ6Xpo4hxBHYyebQFHTNYgESdPfeYdmM%2FsFp2A3H4pg5rqhRhuaxW%2FhgD9D5odjdxfUvzUAfBdJHEkJWJ0hhKDJBsoQWGMx6ritRK9xY0Wib395WMoXpsRgrYHPyPSx%2BzJjqbBO6jtAJdOVg7EaFVuvyAQYO1jFyRwS5T8nB5Xm5EdY6Fh4fFveaAiKVsFme6y8FIuiYYvXfoUnTp605nrJhkhrsV2JFwQHHpHoCTKWZSf3Dea4xUczMdBOmKm6L6g3%2BtPlXuI8UnJdgZkkLcpRYVC8MqFG%2FKe0xpLCOUlBvlbfco%2FS406lklFWObh%2F7vVfyCLd9ebN5XbBr3TkEvzv1P7eKW1Ah1Y96%2B4akjwYeqEhgNP2WZS%2FMPJxV1JsAhsODSjkgw1oKZmzJIKnrV3ZeLkQPu2ruRv1xUyLXYRIljMxudKzQXhJXkA609aXlAXkeiFLPjPgUeWmhda7Giwyu6H%2FnImxWN%2B7cEecQeUNRkkyRNqTr2%2BObTUdJ6tg7TUttrY5QrWAqhvpHSeqdkanowzSxLKhrlSHAQYZLaaazxkKfeyt%2BbcAlu2wgSp489m1kMXLL5RvRFtuH%2BOEYHGJEYIi6i4KL%2F89ooUPr5n6MqEKIcuPqtymDU2aP%2Bgn%2BSkt8d00NV8K5eR|clp%3A2334524|tkp%3ABFBMprj05clf&LH_BIN=1
  8. If you'll ship it I'll take it if Brandon don't take it
  9. It's mostly a south wind that blows the warmer water off shore and the colder water from bottom gets pushed in shallow.....but the big girl does what she wants and is unpredictable.
  10. Welcome to the site. Nice looking stuff. Only question I really got is how do you get your teenage kids to do anything productive? I like the hammered spoons. I'll be ordering a few things. I'd really like a bunch of them hooks you got on your quick strike rigs. I can't find them anywhere and my supply is dwindling.
  11. I had a problem like that on my starcraft. Changed the motor and relays. Switch worked but replaced it and checked the wire 1000 times. Once in a while it worked when jumped. Motor always powered and seemed like everything was ok. One of the cylinders was bad and would fight the other cylinder so it wouldn't go up or down. This was a completely different system than yours tho. Friend changed out the cylinders and worked perfectly. I did not believe it was the cylinders at all and he replaced them when I was gone so I came back to a working boat. First time out after that I blew a hydropic line so if they look old just replace them too. I would try un bolting the rams from the outdrive and see if they move. If not crack the line and see if there is pressure. Like I said my boat was a 68 and the first outdrive ever made so quite different. Somewhere there is a check valve to prevent fluid from returning when the drive is put into reverse so the drive stays locked. If that valve is closed then no fluid is going to circulate thru those lines. Some have that valve in the lift motor and some have it on the shift linkage. That's what I thought was wrong with mine. That valve was locked and preventing the fluid from moving the rams. The rams were my problem but there very different systems. But hopefully you can get this figured out. If the pump runs then it's not a power issue. Check the reverse lockout and the rams.
