  1. If you haven't removed the prop in several years you may find it difficult to remove. A 3# hammer and a block of wood is now your best friend. Place the block of wood at the thick end of one of the prop blades and smack it with that hammer 2-3 times.......if no movement rotate the prop to the next fin blade and repeat until it loosens and comes off.......now check the spines on both the prop and shaft.....it should show corrosion between the SS prop and brass prop hub splines.......clean with penetrating oil and a brass brush..........once clean grease them both up ( I use wheel bearing grease) for a EASY removal next year. Of course check for fishing line, and replace the thrust bearing/washers the way you removed them........and then the prop nut and your NEW SS cotter pin.
  2. Don't forget to remove the prop and clean the shaft......check for fishing line and RE-GREASE the shaft for easy removal next season........and use a new SS cotter pin.
  3. One important thing to remember is to remove the prop, clean and re-grease the shaft and use a NEW Stainless Steel cotter pin. I didn't do this for 3 years and had a VERY HARD time removing because of corrosion.
  4. So we teach the kids NOT to take candy from strangers and then send them out in the dark to get candy from STRANGERS......... am I missing something here.
  5. I use Evinrude's 2+4 fuel treatment to it's recommended dose for storage in the boat's gas tank and run the boat a time or two with it already added. My ETEC has a winterization mode that takes less then 2 minutes at the launch or in my driveway. Can be done many times if you decide to use the boat again before actually putting it to bed for the winter.
  6. I really believe you love to exercise that power to close threads. Let this discussion continue and please hold back those powers of censorship.
  7. I like this one better..........
  8. Most ignorant post so far.........
  9. North winds might give you calmer waters but the fishing usually sucks......north winds come after a cold front has passed and put fish down and off the bite. Normal SW winds are good and really just about any south wind produces a good bite.... East winds fish bite the least while West winds the fish bite the best. Now the best for no waves is when the winds are blowing straight down, you can tell if these winds are blowing when the flag is hanging straight down.......LOL Get yourself a Weather Rock and you will never need the weather idiot again . . .
  10. Launch in the bay east of Point Abino and jig under the moored sailboats for all kinds of EARLY Summer smallmouth action....black jibs are usually the best.....there is a public launch just west of old Crystal Beach.... and that LONG Point Abino really protects you from any west and southwest winds........ we have caught hundreds of smallmouth bass there, not to mention rock bass and perch. Here's how to get there.....the public launch is between the Buffalo Yacht Club and the Buffalo Canoe Club....you will see a small point if you look close at the map. You might have to ZOOM OUT on this map to see land.
  11. I gave up using a "kicker" many moons ago to slow troll, especially now with a iPilot unit that can not only crawl along but also follow contour lines or at least stay on course withOUT fumes and noise all day long. Why anyone wants a "kicker" to slow troll is beyond me.
  12. Having to HOLD the plastic tip into the bottom of the lower unit drain hole kind of defeats the whole purpose of using a pump to EASILY replace the lower unit lube oil. Do a Google search and find the proper threaded end to make your maintenance a pain free experience.
  13. That's OK........ I have no desire to catch stinky green fish that taste like a old sock.
  14. I always heard that "Golf" was for those who FAILED at Fishing....... I don't care how many times they make you hit that egg looking thing while playing golf, you still can't eat it when you get home, unlike fishing. I wish more people would take up golf and not tie up the boat launches as most have no idea what they are doing there.
  15. If you want to look at that way, that's up to you. However, most people who rent cabins/cottages/homes along any lake don't even fish. So NO I don't see it that way unless said rental property stipulated you MUST fish while renting said property. I don't know of any property that has that stipulation, do you ? ? ? Now when you pay a fee to enter into a fishing contest on said lake, I would highly assume that person intends on fishing that contest for a PROFIT.
