Invasive species

LOL - I'll take a picture of the pattern I make for CT when I get home - other than a different head mold it isn't all that different than what you've got there. I had a guy pouring a 5/8 oz hidden head on a .045 wire. From the head to the "R" tie had to be roughly one inch. #5 Indiana blade in sil...

If they got any paint at all, it was from a rattle can, covered in two part epoxy. Most were left in a "natural lead" color.

Invasive species

At the expense of how many smallie targeting $6+ jerkbaits/chatterbaits/spinnerbaits over that time frame? Slimey bastards OTW, I was pretty lucky not to lose too many pricey lures to them. Floating a point A to point B trip one day, I did lose three Lucky Craft Pointers. I told my grown son about ...

Personally, I'm pissed. I figure honestly, since 2000 or so I have managed about 100 of these stinking beasts.

Yes it does. This cast started with a 10" smallie on the line. BTW, 4# test-47"

thrust size ?

Kully, I fish the New River here in VA and the MK 55 has been a staple on my tins since they started making them. Almost enough power to combat the current. I run 29 series batteries in parallel. This battery bank increases the amps but allows the voltage to stay the same. My amp hours are doubled. ...

Invasive species

In the old days, 50 or more years ago, folks tossed trash fish up on the bank. Not legal to do these days. Might not have been legal back then either, but that was the practice of the times. Ldubs, legal or not, I know for a fact it is a practice that continues to this day. Don't ask how I know.......

The blue catfish is our invasive species here Virginia. I hate them with a passion. Freshwater rats is what they are. The biologists in Blacksburg (Joe Williams-muskie and John Copeland-smallmouth) both say the flatheads are the real reason the smallie population is declining. I suppose flatties ar...

'97 25hp Johnson deadman switch

I can't lay claim to being the sharpest hook in the box, so I miss things. I tested the continuity and it showed it was working as it should. I got the neutral start switch and the starter lockout lever off and examined once more. Apparently, the one bolt holding the neutral start switch had loosene...

'97 25hp Johnson deadman switch

Give me the model number of your engine. Not a "deadman" switch. It is a neutral safety switch. Big difference. It is model # J25teeum Try this https://www.marineengine.com/newparts/part_search.php?part_num=386056 That looks like it! None of the schematics looked right, howd you find it? Thanks!
