Stabil

7 posts in this topic

Hi- Getting ready to winterize the boat. Have some Stabil but not sure how old it is and there is no date on the bottle. Does it go bad?

I replace it when/if it gets flakes of stuff in it. Remember, if you use Stabil use it with fresh gas. Adding Stabil to old gas doesn't work.

On the back of my bottle of Stabil it says it's good for two years.

If you think you've had it longer than that, a new bottle is only a few bucks...I'd splurge and buy some new stuff grin.gif

I bought a boat a few months back. The owner didn't use any stabilizer in the fuel and it sat all last winter. Now I have been trying to get the motor running good again. With all time time and effort I put into it, it's a lot easier and cheaper buying a bottle of stabil then what I'm having to go through.

      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)
