S.S. PROPS........?

2 posts in this topic

I RUN A 200 OPTI ON MY 2025 PRO-V. RIGHT NOW I HAVE A MERCURY LASER 2 S.S. PROP IT IS A 3 BLADE WITH A 19 PITCH. SEEMS LIKE THE TOP END IS A LITTLE WEAK. IT IS RUNING GOOD RPM'S BUT IT SEEMS LIKE IT COULD HAVE A LITTLE MORE BOW LIFT. RIGHT NOW AT FULL THROTTLE AND TRIMMED OUT IT ISN'T THROWING A "ROOSTER" JUST WONDERING IN ANYONE ELSE IS RUNNING THE SAME MOTOR WITH A DIFFERENT PROP THAT IS PERFORMING WELL FOR THEM.

I don't know about your specific setup but sometimes raising or lowering (usually raising) the motor on the transom a bit can affect how much boat you can get out of the water. Watch out, though, because there are always trade-offs.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
