    I had a 2008 60hp merc 4 stroke and had a battery go bad on me on the lake, i could run 33mph and as the battery took its turn it started running slower and slower, im guess cuz the electronic fuel pump as running slower and slower.  I was about 10 miles from the ramp and when i got back i was only running at idle.  Put in a new battery and i was golden

    I put a Helix 9 Mega up front andran the power off of the acccessory wire at the bow. Had problems with interference from the trolling motor. Got all sorts of ideas off youtube and from shops how to deal with it. Came across a video and the guy seemed to know what he was talking about. He sais most problelms with interfence is form bad installation. My boat has a 10ga wire for the trolling motor which was inadequate for my 80# thrust. I pulled a new 8ga up fromthe trolling batteries for the trolling motor and moved the 10ga to my cranking to power my console and bow electronics. No more interference!

    Fished Table rock all this week doing well on points in 8-12 fow. Came down Thursday , cooler temps no wind. Caught a few with the same technique in same areas but it was definitely tougher than it had been. Got on one point and graphed some active fish in 18 fow. Dropped a ned and the a shakehead right dow on them without sucess. After a few hours it got real tough couldn't buy a bite. After fishing one last point at about 2 we decied to admit defeat and give it up. on a whim I trolled out to the crest of the point to 23 fow and we both casted back in and on the retrieval we both hooked up a some nice fat Ks. Caught 5 off of that point. Used that tactic on the next 2 points and got 3 more. a mix of Ks and SM. Thes all look prespawn. spen alittle over and hour at this and called it quits. Didn't seems like there were large numbers of fish out there but it was certainly better than what we had struggled through all day. guess I got to learn to my electronics better.Edtitorial comment, The fish below was caught in the AM when it was clear but did catch it in deep water. If you were out yesterday you would know that we had some thick overcast with some sprinkles in the afternoon. Didn't  take any pics of the afternoon fish.

    Happy to report that we arrived yesterday afternoon and the rain and the  thunder and  the lightning and the falling temperatures all appeared as if by magic 🧟‍♂️ and  right on cue!
    Now I see that Weather Underground is forecasting 47 degrees at 1:00 PM on both Monday and Tuesday.
    It’s supposed to be raining too so at least there’s that!

    Good to know that a guy still has his fastball....🤦‍♂️
    In better news, we stopped at Harter House in Springfield on the way down and was able to secure an ample supply of Boston burger, chicken  wings and jumbo shrimp 🍤 so we’re all set in that department.
    So grab your mittens, throw another log on the fire and enjoy! 
    Your welcome!

    Fine, but this is the last time 😅 
     
    Trying to get ONE MORE SEASON out of a tired battery is begging for outboard charging system failure (stator & voltage regulator).    Swap that cranking battery with a 900-1000 MCA every 3rd year and you'll never have that 2000.00 repair bill. 
    The most important guage on your helm is the Voltmeter.  They should make them 4" and the tach 2"... instead of the other way around.     Watch your voltmeter when starting the motor, and glance at it often when running.   If it dips much below 10v while cranking, and isn't between 13-15 while running then you need to find out WHY immediately.     Over 15v will boil your battery dry. Under 12.5 will cause numerous circuits to overheat, which will drastically shorten the life of ignition/charging system components....they are all co-dependant on each other, and none of those components are cheap.
    This info is also relative to your trolling motor circuit. A trolling motor ran using tired (or near dead) battery(s) will overheat every circuit in the system and bake the brushes.  A trolling motor that is never operated with a nearly discharged battery will probably last FOREVER.  But operate it with a 40% charged battery just once and you'll loose power and shorten the overall life of that unit for good.   
     
    There.   Can we pin this somewhere so I don't have to keep repeating myself?   I'd rather spend my time reminding everyone about how ignorant it is to haul bass around in livewells. 😊

    Don’t know if I should admit this but got out the last of the sockeye fillets from 6/2018 trip with Phil L and Brian Ellis to Naknek River. Excellent vacuum sealing kept them in good shape. I smoked fillets and had several recipes for baked fillets with different coatings. Lately I have been making patties. Not a favorite in the past but with fillets not canned they are quite good. Basic recipe fish , egg, bread crumbs. After that you can vary it however you like. Tonight fairly standard mix with some onions and chopped celery. The difference was the sauce , mayo with wasabi. Served with some steamed asparagus

    Inspired by Pheasantguy's post and a few from FB I thought I needed to get back to Stockton. night befpre the forecast showed high chace of rain from the get go. radar didn't look that bad. Got up a 5:30 looked at the radar and went back to bed. Up again alitttle before 7;00. Had to be back home by 2:00 si time was limited but quickly decided to go so out the door by7:15. On th e lake fishing at 9:00.  started on the bank from the put in with a MO craw RKer. About 3 cast into it hook up with a 3 1/2# LM. Halfway down the bank I've got 5 fish, 2 over 3#. Fish came from 6-9 fow problem is the moss goes out to 7 or 8 feet. Had some luck on a few other banks but moss continued to be a problem. Tried a spinnerbait but no love. Weathe rcame in and got about an hour of moderate sprinkles. Last new spot of the day got in to them. RKer and some on a jig. Same depth. a couple hit so hard I thought they bit my jig in two. Lost 2 good fish but caught 5 keepers and a 23" walleye off that stretch. Ended up with 22 fish, 9 keeper LM and walter. Headed home plan a return trip tomorrow.

    Went back next day after the rains came. Crossed Little Sac. Blown out. Not much changed except wind from north now . Crank bait bite was gone. Caught  about 30 between 2 of us over 7 hours. Shakeyhead and Ned some fish caught shallower than before. Still some good quality fish best just under 4#
