Re: Kellogg lake in sultan

I used to live in Sultan and tried to fish from the bank one time, lots of bugs but also you will be very confined as the bank access is limited to the boat put in area which is narrow. Didn't catch anything and never went back as I didn't have a boat suitable for that lake but if I did I am sure I...

Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

OK... my tail is in between my legs as I write this. I would not even come back on here and admit to this, but some of you put a lot of time into sending valuable information. In the end I actually learned a lot about props and hubs. And I think I've come to realize that a spare prop is a good thing...

Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

Randy, thanks for that info about ‘Spinning a prop’ If I understood it right, it sounds like you can damage whatever mechanism actually applies torque spin to the prop.. and then suddenly that mechanism is spinning, but prop not engaging.. no prop spin? Anyway, we’ll see. I have never run a motor in...

Re: Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

Thank you guys- Hlindsay, that looks like a great option on the Amazon skeg replacement. I checked it out. Phil, you have a good point though on the dealer documenting etc. I will go run the boat in a lake, and see if it was a fluke or something on my motor function via the previous return trip yest...

Broke off piece of lower unit on motor

OK, well.. had my new boat for only a few months, and today I really screwed up. My concrete slab/driveway has a 6" drop when you pull off the driveway, there is a drop into earth. Normally when I pull the trailer over this area, I ALWAYS have the motor trimmed up, not in a down position. Today I wa...

Re: Kellogg lake in sultan

Definitely not bank/shore fishing... unless someone knows something I don’t. It is SUPER Jungle like. If you know the Achafalaia basin in Louisiana, this is it.

Re: Kellogg lake in sultan

In my experience it is mostly stunted Largemouth. I’ve never caught anything over 1.5 lb. it is a Great Lake though, in my opinion. Has a ton if fish. You will have a good time.

Update: The boy and I went this morning and nabbed 16 perch and sunfish. They were all small-ish but so is he. He was super excited. Thanks for the idea.

Re: Looking for bait and bobber sure thing for 7 YO

Bearforceone, I feel your pain. You just want to see your kid hit some fish, any fish, etc. unfortunately, we are in the dog days of summer. This means lakes are at their warmest temps. Trout fishing this time of year is difficult, unless you can get out in a boat and troll deeper depths, jig, etc. ...

Re: Looking for tips for buying a used boat

BentRod, so glad to hear you are taking the plunge. I clearly cannot tell you anything that you don’t already know about boats. Having just gone through this, I will just say that no matter how much you think a boat you are looking at cannot be beat in terms of meeting your needs in all categories.....

The add-on coiled cable for Transducer on Terrova/Ultera

Not sure how to describe this, but when you buy a bow mount Min Kota Terrova or Ulterra, if you are going to run a transducer off it, then you order it with the transducer capability built in. However.. if you don’t order it that way, and decide later to put a transducer on it, then you buy this add...
