    It's useless $#!t like that, that make outboards cost more than they should.

    I told my engineer daughter that if I ever caught her designing anything that has no useful purpose other than to over-complicate things.....I would disown her and break her favorite plate.

    Evinrude jets had nitches, where our friend Jim Johnson has his Lodge in Alaska at King Salmon its all Etec jets.  Down on the White River in Arkansas its all Merc jets and most other places in Alaska it is pretty much Merc. jet and Yamaha or Honda outboards.  You will see a few Suzuki outboards but not many Merc straight outboards other than jets.
    You go to Florida or the Texas Coast and its 70% Verado.
    I think the nitches are mostly due to service centers where you can buy and get them worked on.

    @JamiePatterson you'll love that 150. I bought my 2013 new in 2014 and it's been rock solid for the 6 years I've owned it. Love that engine!

    When I was in college there was a boat dealer right on the strip in Branson where the 1st. walmart used to be.  They had Stinger Packages lined up in every color with 70 hp Evinrudes that were paint matched to the boat.  They had orange and black ones that looked so friggin mean.  Would have sold the 1st. born back then to have had one.

    It just says that Mercury will be supplying engines for BRP boat brands. I didn’t see anything mentioned about outboard dealers though. Cowtown just got the Etec G2 jets up and going and now this happened. I’ll be curious to see what they end up doing. They were one of the few dealers that strictly sold one brand of outboard because they truly believed it to be the best product on the market. What a deal.....

    Yeah I'm glad I stayed strictly in the service business and never made the grand slam jump into a dealership.  
    Tech classes are still on the future schedule so BRP fully intends to continue parts sales and service bulletins for many years to come.  
    Evinrude outboards will be around for quite some time yet.¬† You don't have to be NEW to be awesome. ūüėČ

    Seth reacted to snagged in outlet 3 in Cool story about a big brown...   
    The brown in my profile picture was caught that way at Rim shoals on a wooly bugger.  The brown thrashed so hard the little rainbow slid up the fly line.  My brother and I chased it down and he grabbed the little rainbow right as the fly line finally pulled through his lower jaw.  Chased the brown all the way down the first island and got it in some slack water and grabbed it.   27 inches long but no girth measurement.

    I ran a 115 Etec from 2010-2014 and a 150 from 2014 till now and have had very good luck with them. My 150 probably has over 400 hours on it and it keeps getting me from point A to B and back again.

    Seth reacted to netboy in Good day at the dam 5/26   
    We had over an inch of rain in the Cotter area last night so the river was brown this morning. I took the boat up to the dam to find clear water and then got out and waded an area that is good on the one unit of water they were running. Fishing was great with some really fat rainbows, one cuttie and a nice brown. I caught some early stripping a crackleback and then switched to a Y2K/ruby midge combo later in the morning. 
    I guess today may have been the last day for wading since they are supposed to open the spill gates tomorrow.
    Here's a few pics...

    Biggest this evening
    Rode out one hell of a storm earlier. Wow! ūüė≤
    The fish here on my end of the lake have NOT spawned, in spite of what everyone is saying.  It's gonna happen within the next week or so I think. 
    I lost count on the number of 15"+ keepers because the storm freaked me out a bit. 12-14 I think (in 5 hours).¬† ¬†At 3 hours in I swung #9 in the boat and declared myself a HAMMER!¬† ūüėÖ¬†

    Small ones are pretty good. We caught one bass fishing that was probably pushing 15# one time that I cleaned and fried up. It was about like chewing on a tire.

    Go to a heavier weight so you can stay in contact with the soft plastic. I typically throw a 1/4-3/8oz bullet weight on a trigged tube and I can't recall ever hooking one deep. In the past I would use an 1/8oz bullet weight on a trigged senko style bait and I had issues with deep hooking fish because I was losing contact with the lure in current seams. The lighter setup allowed for a more natural presentation, but it was more prone to deep hooking fish due to slower bite detection.

    Afraid to go back now for fear of being disappointed on a normal day.   I keep saying i can't believe this bite.  One of the 3 of us had one on all the time it seemed with lots of doubles.  
    I am always a day early or a day late.  Glad we hit it right this time.  Of course all were released right after pictures.

    Took my brother and nephew and had a great day.  Fished sun up to sun down and caught over 100 bass.  Got tired of counting. Largest was just over 4 lbs.  Guessing the cloud cover helped the bite last all day. Here are a few pictures.  Wrenches suggestions were spot on.     Thanks for the suggestions.

    They sure have to be by now. Spent Saturday AM chasing bass on Stockton and Mother Nature must’ve thought I was looking skinny. Two of these slabs hit a squarebill and one choked a half ounce spinnerbait, go figure. Walter also choked the blade. Sure was nice getting away from boat docks.
