      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.

fogging an outboard

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what it means to "fog a motor" I am looking at maybe getting a salvage boat and the motor was submerged. It has been fogged and compression tested and runs ok. Just don't know what they mean by "fogging".

Thanks for any help.

Simply put it is spraying the cylinders (usually thru the spark plug holes) with a rust preventative while rotating the flywheel.

While the motor is idling, oil is sprayed into the intake untill the motor quits running. You can buy fogging oil at just about any parts store in a aerisol spray can.

Two strokes are usually fogged while the engine is running, by spraying oil through the carb, to lubricate the engines internal parts which are normally lubricated by the fuel oil mix. Four strokes are fogged by the oil squirted through the spark plug hole to lube the combustion area since the bearings and crank are lubed by the oil in the sump of the engine.

Does anyone have any experience with a motor that has been fogged?

A motor should be fogged before long term storage. With your motor since it has been submerged, I would look it over entirely making sure nothing is damaged, there is new gear lube in the lower unit and if it is a 4 stroke new oil in the crankcase, also check the spark plugs making sure they are not fouled. Other than that put new gas in it and start it up. It will smoke a little bit more than normal for a few minutes but that will go away.

Has the motor been "fogged" or "pickled"

Fogged is as described, but since you have to run the motor to do it the damage will occur, besides if submerged it will not run, they probably just fogged the cylinders... not good

Pickled, the motor gets filled with light oil (usually diesel) and kept preserved this way to displace moisture from it until further repair can be made

I any way I would stay away from a motor that has been submerged. The electrical and electronic parts will be damaged.

Also rod, pin, and crank bearings will get pitted and damaged, motor will last very little.

I tried myself more than once and never got very far.

Practically if you can buy rig at boat price only you will get a free "parts" motor but don't count on it as usable or durable.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
