      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Yamaha 115 4-stroke question

Question

klw

I have a Yamaha 115 4 stroke and change the oil and filter every year. This spring I was at fleet farm and figured I would just check and see if they carry a filter. I found a filter in the FRAM filter book that was listed for my engine that also appears to be used in ATV engines. This filter is $5.00 which is $20.00 dollars cheaper than the Yamaha replacement at the marine dealer. Does anyone see a problem with using the FRAM filter? confused.gif

I believe others on FM have used the Fram filter without any issues... and I also believe others really don't care for fram filters in general...

But, will it fit and function? Yes.

I just paid $15 for a yamaha filter, I have used oem filters on my boat motor since new. Although I have a yamaha grizzly that takes the same filter, I have used the napa filter and fram filter on that, with no problems. But I figured the extra $9 for oem on the $11k boat motor just makes me feel better.

I have used Fram on my Yamaha F60 since 2003 when it was new.

No problems, never will have any. I believe they are the same filter as Yamaha's.

Save yourself the $20, use it on the price of gas instead! blush.gif

The yamaha # is 5gh-13440-00 $14.20, and I believe the fram # is ph6017, but I may be wrong with the fram #

I was told that there might be a warrenty issue to consider if you dont use the factory authorized parts.. just something to consider if you still have a warrenty.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
