      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

9.9 Johnson break in

Question

JoeT

Just picked up a 2003 Johnson 9.9 2 stroke that's new just been test run. Didn't have a manual can't get it down loaded from Johnson my computer keeps locking up. Does anyone know the proper way to break it in. Oil to gas ratio lower unit grease what type things like that etc, I can call a dealership on Monday, but have Sunday off and would like to give it a try.

Thanks for the help.

Joe

Oil ratio is 50:1, run it normally but don't put a huge load on it, get to full throttle for few seconds then back off, mostly run it at 3/4 throttle max.

Approx a couple of hours should be fine.

Gear oil should be already in the lower unit, in any case any type of marine gear lube will do it.

Thanks Valv, if the rain holds off I'll put a couple of hours on it this afternoon.

I believe what is typical for break in on a two stroke is double oil - so put in two pints to 6 gallons for the first tank and try to run as much of that tank out as you can before filling it again.

Good luck!

You are right Marine man, I was finale able to get my computer to down load a manual. First 10 hours mix the gas oil 25 - 1 10 min at fast idle next 50 min not more then 3500 Rpm switch it up, next hour bring to plane back down to 3/4 then a min or 2 wide open, next 8 hours different Rpm

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.
