I getting my son machine ready for the up coming winter, but have two questions.

1. the "RDY" light came on and will not go off and

2. there is what I would call alot of smoke out of the exhaust. he just bought it used, do not know how old the gas is or the last time a plug was changed.

any ideas?

I'm not much of a sled mechanic so I'm not sure about the light but I would siphon/drain out any old gas and start with fresh stuff to avoid any possible issues w/ old fuel. Also check the plugs and replace if necessary or at the very least buy an extra set and throw them in the tool box so you have spares when you need them. If it hasn't been run in a while it might not hurt to clean the carbs. Depending on how well it was cared for you might want to grease the suspension fittings and check your belts.

I have an older indy that I bought and those were the steps needed to get it back in action, now its a champ.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
