Re: User avatars

Weird, same Firefox version on my laptop as my desktop, avatars display on my laptop but not desktop. One thing I do know, Windows updates at different times between the two so that may be it. No big deal so I'm not going to worry about it. [wink]

Re: User avatars

Maybe my Firefox needs updated, will try that and see if it corrects.

Noticed mine wasn't displaying and checked several others and theirs aren't either so thought I'd post it up.

Re: Rufus Woods Walleyes?

If you're serious about searching for walleye you need to be in the upper section of Rufus. Would do best to launch at Seaton Grove and fish the areas Mark mentioned in his report. He's back to Roosevelt now that Porcupine Bay has re-opened. ;-)

Re: Rufus Woods Walleyes?

Check the reports section, there have been a few walleye reports posted recently but they were at the upper end.

Re: Site Question Not Off Topic

My comments were not in support of any changes, just indicating how I view/read reports, which has been my standard operating procedure here for a very long time. I tailor what I read to what interests me and wouldn't expect changes based on that. [wink]

Re: Site Question Not Off Topic

I have internal filters just like Quad. I skip almost all guide reports as they don't help me as an angler, great for them to drum up business but I'm not interested in that. Of much greater value would be reports from the CUSTOMERS but that doesn't happen. I don't read reports for waters I don't fi...

Very welcome. [wink]

And here's a link to what I use to monitor Roosevelt levels.

Re: Banks Lake and the Spokane arm?

Think I recall one just below the island on the arm but too early for them to be "open". Probably won't be until closer to Memorial Day. Haven't launched at Ft. Spokane for over 10yrs so memory is foggy, but, am pretty sure there are pit toilets at top of the hill near the parking area.

Re: Super fast small trout boneless filets

I fillet all my trout, but those in Roosevelt are much larger which also makes it much easier to do. I find a very sharp, flexible fillet knife to be indispensable. [wink]

Curious how you deal with the pin bones...

Re: Which mapping system for roosevelt??

Roosevelt level data is updated several times daily as you can see here . Move your curser over the blue text for detail. Times and level recorded for today since midnight to 6am: Midnight - 1268.4' 0100 - 1268.4' 0200 - 1268.3' 0300 - 1268.2' 0400 - 1268.3' 0500 - 1268.5' 0600 - 1268.5' Just visite...

Re: Which mapping system for roosevelt??

You misunderstand what Im saying Phil. I agree with everything you say. The problem is Navionics, and now Garmin, is drawing contours based on data from ignorant users. People record the depth info as they fish, then turn that data in - without ever correcting for the current water level - which wi...

Re: Which mapping system for roosevelt??

Specific to Roosevelt, why would anyone adjust their sonar for changes in water levels when the charts, paper or electronic, are ALL referenced to 1290' above sea level? If "average Joe fisherman" doesn't know he's fishing on a reservoir where the levels change, well, maybe he shouldn't be. Have nev...

Re: Merc 4hp 4 stroke

Your engine is fully compatible for ethanol fuel up to 10%, and JHMO, that is not a contributing factor to your issues. It's my opinion your problem is the new self-venting tank. I'd borrow a different, known good tank and run off it to isolate to the engine or fuel supply.

Re: Which mapping system for roosevelt??

Warning that reservoir levels are subject to change and that displayed data is based on full pool elevation of 1290'. Roosevelt can, and usually does, drop 55' - 60' every year. I've launched at 1230' once or twice in the past 10yrs. User interpretation of displayed data is required, just like a pri...

Some forums/sites have a time out set for login after a set time of inactivity. Don't know if that's the case here or not.

One more note, as hewesfisher was hinting above earlier, just because the part was replaced doesnt mean its good. Some of my biggest blunders in diagnostics have come from bad parts!
Yessir.

What year is this Mercury 4hp 4 stroke?
