  1. If you'll ship it I'll take it if Brandon don't take it
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Interested in the pair of cannon planer masts. Where you located?
  6. My package came yesterday. Talk about awesome packaging. As soon as I looked at my 5 packs of 13 and realized I should have ordered more. These are gonna be some derby winning fillets.
  7. I need these. Sending money now. Thanks again!
  8. Olcott looked a couple feet low last weekend. Lowest I ever remember seeing it. Take the low water and all the mud braddock's has and you might only be able to get thru during high tide. Put a mud motor on the Jon boat and you might be alright.
  9. I'll take the wire rods, the glt with the 47 reel and the maxi mate and spoons.
  10. I wasn't sure if it could hold a flasher or not. Some people say yes, some say no. Wanted to try it but I've been using regular dipsy's my whole life so tripping is not as important to me as not having false trips. I would use braid on this setup but my normal wire dipsy's are on 10' rods with twilly tips so was just gonna cut off a few feet of the messed up wire that I screwed up with poor storage and make those my high divers. Then get some 8'6" rods for the low divers. Then I'll be able to break down the long rods and just store them regularly and keep my low divers in 1 piece. The 10' just are too long to store in 1 piece on my boat and I normally only have 1 other guy with me so in my 6 rod spread I'd only have 1 diver per side unless we are chasing browns or walleye. Still need to run the rigger with the probe and paddle and I'd probably run another wire before a diver but when I can't buy a bite I buy more equipment to wash my ever growing collection of baits. Never know I might end up using these as my main divers and just storing the regular dipsy's.
