I would stick with eyewarrior, it has a better ring to it. I'd rather be a warrior than a ranger in the battle against the Green lake walleyes anyway. I saw the new boat at the tournament last year, NICE! You have a T8 kicker on there if I remember right. How do you like that setup? Is that what you use primarily when you're backtrolling?

Fife

All backtrolling is done with 101# vector. The T8 is used only for open water forward trolling(plugs). T8 does not allow adequate handling to contour troll forward. I do drop the T8 down for drag to slow down the 150hp tiller. Forward trolling speed is approx 2.4mph w/0 T8 down 2.0mph with T8 in water. If I were to do it over again I dont think I'd have a gas kicker.

Kurt do you lock in neutral or let prop run free on t-8 when using it for drag

If you put it in reverse it wont let prop turn but forward will let it go one direction???I assume You are just dragging it not running it '

Another smart question should auxillary tiller motor be mounted on port or starboard side to get best thrust for turning a fairly large boat such as your ranger???

I see some boats with small auxillary motors on wrong side as they thrust better on one side and i cant even remember which it is.

Being were picking your brain how much does a small wind sock slow you om a similar powered control drive??

I actually leave kicker in gear so prop doesn't spin. I have it mounted on port(left) side my 101 electric needs to be on starboard side to be able to use it effectivley. Way to long of a reach if elec was on other side. I have made a z shape handle that I put on the t8 when I am going to be trolling open water for any length of time. I dont mess with wind sock for trolling at all anything less than 2.0 mph I use my 101 bow mount. I also had a 24V minnkota bolted onto the cav plt on 150. It worked real well except big motor switch needs to be on in order to turn Yamy 150. Cav plt motor broke & sent into mfg for fix & I never put it back on. I'm sure this is way to much info but I had some time to kill before the next hockey game.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...

      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.

      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.
    • Wanderer
      Get some sea foam in that gas tank and run ‘er!  I can’t tell you exactly where it’s gummed up, but it is.  It’ll take a tank and maybe two but it should clear up. Or, take the carb back off soak it and clean every oriface you can find by poking and blowing compressed air through all the holes.  Put a new carb kit on it and reinstall. Whichever way you prefer should work. Mix your gas with 100:1 Amsoil next time, especially if you let it sit with gas in it over the summer.  I run about 75:1 and have gotten away without gummed up carbs when forgetting to clear the gas from last year - like today.  First day starting the gas auger.  I found out it wasn’t stores empty like I normally do. Took about 10 pulls but she came around and did fine on the lake today.  I WAS annoyed to find gas in it but I have no one to blame but me.
