Re: Jon boat vs V hull

mod v ++

I really like my grizzly 1648. Its a mod-v and very stable most of the time. Handles light chop well.
If the water is very choppy, I adjust my speed accordingly.

Those little old evinrudes are the best. Here's my 1964 5.5 fisherman. I believe it was the last year you had to pull the power head to change the water pump impeller. Dang it!

That's a nice clean little motor. Great runner too! Thanks for sharing the videos.

Congrats!
Very happy with my 2018 tracker grizzly 1648 (tiller).

Re: Grizzly 1548?

I bought a new 2018 1648 grizzly last summer.
Agree, its a pretty stout boat. Suites my needs. Very pleased with it.
Good luck.

Re: Tiny Tach and the like reliability?

Just went through my second tachometer. The first was a Tiny Tach, the second a knock-off. My best bet is that moisture killed them both. I store them inside but boat in all weather. They both lasted about one season. So what I want to know it’s this typical of these little tachs? Is there a more d...

Re: Motor for alumacraft mv1648 ncs

Just picked the boat up this week. Looking to get a motor for it soon. It will be used for fishing and some duck hunting. Most of the time it will be 2 guys and dog on the boat. Will a 25hp be sufficient? I'm not against going used for the motor but may buy a new one. Any suggestions on brands for ...

Re: WATCH OUT for E15 fuel

Bad part about Non-Ethanol is that it still might have ethanol in it. Local station advertised 93 octane no ethanol, yet when you test it, it's around 5%. Still meets federal madates (it only has to be labeled up to 10% if it's 7 to 10%). Also I questioned the station's owner that one night when I ...

Re: WATCH OUT for E15 fuel

The manual for my new motor says non ethenol is preferred, but e10 if you have to.
So far finding non ethenol gas isn't much of a problem where I live.
Also, I installed a fuel water seperater filter on my boat for good measure.

Not on crawlers,worms, spec minnows, rapalas of all color and kind, whopper ploppers , beautiful day though could not have been more perfect. hopeful...

Me and a few friends have been catching pretty good.
I was just wondering how you guys fishing has been going?
I haven't been out yet, but
I'm planning on doing some cat fishing in Tennessee in late May.
