  1. Mexico bay was full of fish Monday. Flasher fly on a diver was the ticket.
  2. Use the snubber between weight and prob or you will regret it
  3. On the drive unit we're bellow should seal there's 4 notched out sections for the outdrives input shaft bearing bolts . That in my opinion would cause a leak and looks like a poor design to me .
  4. Any experienced Volvo techs out there that would like to explain how the drive shaft bellows stops water from getting to u joint ? I have been a automotive tech for over 30 years and cannot see how there's any way do to design it can stop water from reaching u joint. Please explain if you can. Thanks
  5. A set of nautica smart tabs will fix you right up they work awesome are cheap and easy to install.
  6. Hello I have a 2003 Pursuit Denali 2865 and my helm switch has failed I guess this was a common problem with these boats . I am trying to find replacement but they were made by DNA group that I believe is out of business and I am have trouble find one. Any info on places to ck would be greatly appreciated.Thanks

  8. Ok I will keep cking my phone settings just weird I can get sound on LOU .thanks
  9. Anyone else have a problem with sound not working on these videos? Cked my phone and videos on YouTube and the web all work fine as well as Facebook.
  10. Well it's nice if surface speed is close to GPS speed however water displacement around the hull will cause the water to speed up so the main goal is to just duplicate down speed at which you catch fish at. Try putting probe about 10 feet down and see if it closer to GPS speed . I have multiple surface speed sensors such as GPS and paddle wheel so I can kind of average out all of them and adjust fishhawk accordingly for surface speed.
  11. if it was me I would go right out of Mexico point and fish the east and west side of the plant in tight and tight to the plant buoys. Alcan point is good as well look for some color and slightly warmer water . Fish sticks in tight and spoons slightly deeper . Good luck
  12. There is a setting in the programming to slow the tailfin down but that being said it's not ideal seeing the kicker rudder turns but main engine doesn't. So you end up with a lot of oversteering I am going to try two Amish buggy bags under the forward midship of the boat.I is supposed to make the bow stick and control wandering.
  13. I run weighted steel on that copper / lead core rod with no issues. It has a stainless tip and eye's.
  14. I use the church tackle inline boards and reverse forward clip so the board does not fall off with braid.
  15. Make sure when you strip black coating off rigger cable that you take a razor blade and scrape off clear coating that is on copper wire then solder electrical connector to end then attach the bolt the bolt.
  16. Thanks for the input guys ran the boat and tracked pretty well with kicker locked straight ahead . I figure in the wind and chop my be a little harder to control so decided to order a Talfin electro steer from powtran and use a wireless remote in conjunction with the helm .
  17. Looking for opinion on Panther t5 remote steering for kicker motor . Setting up a new pursuit 2865 with Volvo Penta outdrive and 9.9 Yamaha outboard and cannot link together do to offset. Does anyone use a t5 electro steer and do you like it or is steering with a remote a pain in the ass .
  18. Great catch please do your self and the fish a favor as the water gets warmer it is almost impossible to get released Lakers to go back down to depth . Buy yourself a sequelizer of Amazon for around 50 bucks and send them back down to the thermocline. I hate when I release a fish and do to air and heat exhaustion that can't go back down . Just set depth on sequelizer and send down on rigger it releases at set depth . Great job on some nice Lakers !👍
  19. 50 degree surface temp I would say the boy is nuts . Lol
  20. Caught 31 fish in a day and a half out of Mexico over a dozen lampreys on them . That's more than last three years combined not as good sign for things to come.
  21. I have had multiple slide divers cut two different brands of braid off very disappointing as they do catch fish but can't justify throwing 25 bucks away every other trip .
  22. Thanks everyone for the advice going to make some calls between buying a bigger boat and the charter insurance thing's are adding up fast.
