Bad 4th of July

3 posts in this topic

I had one of the worst 4th of July's in recent memory. My wife and I were out fishing south of wabasha and decided to head in for lunch around 1:00 and on the way in my motor ceased up!! I run a 18ft Nitro with a 150 merc. The problem I am having is I cannot (or anyone I know) find a 2000-2004 135 or 150 optimax to get my boat back up and running. I have people looking all over the metro, up in the range are, and all over wisconsin. It seams people don't trade these in very often. If anyone can help me out I would REALLY APPRECIATE THE HELP. I have a trip planned to go back up to the big pond the last week of this month, pending finding a motor of course. PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU KNOW OF ONE FOR SALE. Again me and my family would really appreciate any help.

Sorry to hear of the bad luck you had. Did you really mean the 4th, or the 13th?

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
