Howdy Guys. I'm looking at possibly getting this model for a kicker on my boat. I was just wondering if anyone knows for sure what model this is? In otherwords what does the letters in F8MLHD stand for? Thanks for any help, Junky..

I believe the code is: Manual tilt manual start (non electric start), Long Shaft, Handle (Tiller model), and D is for model year 2005.

Mag. The T8 is the high thrust model. The F8 is the regular version. The T8 is suppose to be an awesome motor. I did however, purchase the F8 today. I don't need the high thrust version, so the F8 should do for me. Hence all the items I have for sale in the for sale forum. grin.gif

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
