Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

I hear you on the tach. My first prop change without a tach and gps made me go slower. Guess and check gets expensive. Ive got a few options for portable tachs, but really wish I had a permanent one. Chris's boat doesn't have one either, I dont think. If you're not harmonically in tune to the sound ...

Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

Yep definitely need Marine / Suzuki aluminum primer and paint for touch up. saltwater water is tough on exposed aluminum. Aluminum is difficult to get paint to stick to, and requires specific paint supplies. Glad to hear that it was just trim/ prop ventilation. Before buying a spare prop, let's talk...

Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

Googled the suzuki 40hp original prop info, rseas was is correct, you should have a pressed in rubber hub if the prop is original. Press-in hub # : 58120-88L00. -Some aftermarket props have no replaceable hub though! Checking the prop hub by hand, out of the water, for signs of a spinning hub might ...

Re: question about livescope power use

I'll bet my first guesses are pretty close. (as far as power draw, available run time etc) If you do have the 50 amp charging system, I would think that at high speed when all batteries are switched together that the aux batteries could be recharging at a good 30 amps. Run that main motor at speed f...

Re: question about livescope power use

A small kicker at low speed will not do much charging btw, only a few amps. The main motor, if its wired to charge all three batteries, might give priority to the main starting battery, then charge the aux batts, depends on how it's wired. The main motor at high speed will likely charge at anywhere ...

Re: question about livescope power use

Looks like the livescope uses 21 watts typically and 58 max. If you have 3 batteries, I'll assume one is main and the other 2 are auxiliary? So, a couple of fairly healthy marine batteries are likely around 200 amp hours together. (only use 80% before recharging/ 160 ah usable) a couple scotty downr...

Re: First time fly fishing, Montana

Not sure if it will help, but the town of Darby, near Hamilton had some of the best (fly) fishing Ive ever experienced. My family settled that area, and is all over in the town museum. Blodgett Canyon was named after my great great uncle, Maxwell Blodgett. The population of Darby is unchanged.... ar...

Re: Lake Washington Crawfishing spots?

Ive dropped 5 pots in Lake Washington a few times. Caught nothing but sculpin and bullfrog tadpoles. Ive soaked pots near the mouth of mercer slough, around the cedar river mouth, various spots along the east channel and near lake union.... all skunked. Ive trapped Sammamish twice with the same resu...

Re: Crappie Fishing in Snohomish County

I'm quite a bit south of you, but the combustion engine ok lakes Ive caught crappie in down here are Lake Washington. Lake Sammamish and Lake Sawyer. I hear Lake Washington has some monsters, but the little 8-10 inch Lake Sawyer crappie have been on fire in the evening lately.

Re: Baitcaster vs. Spinning Gear

+1.... grew up with spinning gear. Baitcasting has been so difficult for me, Ive all but given up. I have been able to stop my line with my spinning rod by hand very accurately for quite some time now, but still wish I could bait cast more comfortably. I would imagine that most backcountry and canoe...

Re: Panfish Jig Fishing

Ive been jig fishing a lot lately. Trout, crappie, bluegill and bass. Casting a jig or tube with a 1/32 jig head seems to be the best for me. Hook size is small on most 1/32 oz heads, but bigger hooks can be found in that weight. That ultra slow sink rate allows for a very slow retrieve, and a very ...
