  1. There are two Evinrude dealers within driving distance. Both have a fairly decent rep. One is currently where I take my boat now. I understand that everything has a life expectancy. Would like to do my part to make sure it lasts as long as it can. I doubt I would be able to get any maintenance records. I did go and view the boat over the weekend. He sounded like he knew about the motor fairly well. Motor was turned on and run sounded ok. I was told that there has never been any major work done to the motor, only small things. He said the "small" things he did but the other jobs it was taken to a mechanic near his cottage for service. So I'm opting to have it looked at for an engine diagnostic. As well as a once over for other boat things that were missed.
  2. Thanks. Yes, I totally agree that the main shouldn't be used but a kicker isn't in the budget right now.
  3. Just asking for any information as none of my friends who have boats have Etec's. All are Yami or Merc. Thank you Scott, appreciate it. 👊 I called my local marine dealer. Told me they could get parts for the motor..
  4. Maybe the thought was that they would freeze up and close before something like that would happen? Yes i agree not to make the ice unsafe for others, and being prepared however I don't think that was the intention. I disagree with the garbage statement, you could stuff it in your pocket or tackle bag. People who do that are ignorant and lazy.
  5. I agree, however what are you do when you're out on the ice with nothing to mark open holes with?
  6. Have you trolled with the motor? if so how was the performance?
  7. Does that mean the Evinrude motors that pre date 08 are Ficht motors? I believe this one has a BRP badge on it.
  8. I believe those were the Fict or Ficht motors? The were made until the early 2000’s, then BRP bought the company. The one that is on the boat I’m looking at is a BRP motor.
  9. It’s a 2005 motor. Unsure about the amount of hours on it. Would it be a bad idea to troll with a 2 stroke motor of that size? Yes, been reading a lot about the motors. Some good some bad. The reviews seem to be mostly one sided but then again you will hear more bad then good.
  10. Hey all, Looking at a boat with an 90hp Evinrude Etec. Does anyone own one or have any experience with these motors? I have read very mixed reviews online regarding these motors and have no experience with them personally. Would be used for mainly driving but also from trolling. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. X2 on them both. Would say that Fishing World has more of a selection.
  12. Hey guys, posting for a friend here. As this explains he had musky baits stolen out of his boat while on vacation. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. STOLEN MUSKIE BAITS *******$1000 reward******* Wishmaster Wish Dark Walleye Hosebaits Bluewater Baits Elzinga Baits Rennie Baits Perchbaits Stolen from my boat was a musky monster box and a 5 gallon pail rimmed with custom muskie baits. This happened between the hours of 9:00 pm and 6:30 am on Sunday evening August 31st into the morning of September 1st 2019 at Rock Pine Resort in Pointe Au Baril, Ontario. I am offering up a $1000 reward for the return of the baits that are listed below. Please keep comments in good nature, yes I probably shouldn’t have left them in the boat, but I have learned a hard lesson that will never be repeated. Let this be a lesson learned for everyone to take your stuff out of your boat for the evening. A lot of these baits are one off patterns made by Hoser, Lidio and Steve and have a been run hard with a lot of lip wear and hook rash present. Most importantly to me is they have history and most with a good story to tell. I would definitely like to see them returned to me and that’s why I have offered up a reward. Below is a list of what was taken to my best recollection but I am sure I am missing 5-10 baits and cannot recall everyone that was in the box. Lakewoods Monster Musky Box – Faded Green from the rain and sun Lil Wish Wishmaster Dark Walleye Cream Belly I ran this Wishmaster as Rolf would have wanted, it has lip wear and hook rash.

  13. If your looking for a higher end reel I would go with the Shimano Stradik. I have an older model and its the best spinning reel I've owned. Also worth considering are the Shimano NASCI and the Daiwa Tatula. I have those as well. Both are at a lower price point but great reel.
  14. There some good info in this video and Tactial Bassin has many more videos on frog fishing that are worth checking out.
  15. 90% of the time I'll texas rig it. Yes you can use 5". I actually tend to use 4" most of the time, even drop to 3" sometimes. Also I wacky rig it from time to time when the cover is sparse. As far as weight goes I use a weightless hook most of the time unless I drop to 3". Then I will use a 1/8 to 3/16oz.
