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.

      I've been looking for a waterproof spray product for gloves and work boots. I've seen a few products like ultra dry, rust oleum, camp dry. I've asked around and nobody has any experience using any such product. Do any of these actually work? I saw a video from ultra dry that their product actually keeps things dry, like a piece of paper, clothing. I use many gloves at work and I'm tired of having wet gloves cold hands from handling things that are full of snow. When mfrs. say their product glove, boot or whatever is waterproof shouldn't your feet or hands stay dry? Moisture goes thru to inner part eventually and hands/feet get cold or are damp.

      with the current weather and the forcast for next week, we should have great ice by next weekend. be safe out there this weekend, ice just took hold on smaller lakes, the wind has kept things uneven.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!
