  1. I took Friday off. Thought I had the master plan for trolling! Caught 6 short walleye 5 short crappie and 1 keeper w the fam. I got trumped and the swimming began!
  2. But I enjoyed the politics forum and miss it
  3. Political forum is back baby!
  4. I mixed my gas for trial run 25:1 rather than 50:1. Thought the single stihl bottles. Made 1 gal when it was for 2
  5. Could it be too rich of a mixture? I am replacing the fuel pump as well. Firestone is back to life. Started on first pull with the push button choke
  6. Nice and dark black. What’s interesting is, it was missing the back thrust washer. I had milky oil leaking out, which lead me to drain it in the first place. The oil that came out of the lower unit drain was black to my surprise. I’m wondering if a seal replacement is in store, or if I could take the thrust washer off the other lower unit and it would seal as I had about an inch of play in the prop on the shaft. It’s been a project and I enjoy it. on a side note I acquired a 1947 Firestone 3.6 hp that I restored spark to last night. If I get it going I may try to do a full restore with paint and the whole works
  7. Got it out. Ended up drilling a slot. Flat head and vise grip on handle. Whacked it w a hammer and she freed up
  8. Are the replacements standard size or will this be a pain finding one that fits a 1979. I have another lower unit so I could take from it but not so sure they aren’t in worse shape
  9. I stripped the head out of a hex drain plug when attempting to change lower unit oil on an evenrude 15. Luckily I just walked away from it rather than getting too pissed and screwing it up more. Any ideas on the best way to get the plug out? I’ve looked on the inter webs and easy outs as well as cutting a slot for a flathead screw driver are ideas.
  10. Nice work. I hit the water last Sunday with a buddy his daughter and my kids. I captained the boat and they fished.
  11. I just brought the idea up to 3 friends. Said I’m turning 40 and a buddy booked a plane ticket today. I guess I’m in. I suppose I need to do some calling! I’m driving
  12. Any outfitters better than others. I got a group of 4 four 4 nights. My thinking was just to call but would love to hammer walleye. It’s my thing!
  13. Anyone ever fish up that way? Or have advice on a trip for a week in late august/sept?
  14. Definitely speks or white fronts. I can get peeping but scratchy sound peeping would be specklebellys. Geese start to nest in the prairie pot holes as early as february
  15. Great looking grass!
  16. I’ve ice fished where the auger barely breaks through. 2 inches of ice would make me rethink having a bad day!
  17. You’re a good man.
  18. What are you asking for them?
  19. Was the shotgun in the boat?
  20. Did I ever say I bring my boat to you because YOU do the work? Happy customer too
  21. Dabblers are delicious. Especially on grain.
