hey guys, i just bought a boat and picked it up today. it has a merc. 15 hp 2 stroke motor, serial # 0t001765. pretty sure it is a 50:1 gas to oil ratio but wanted to find out for sure. anyone know or know of a place where this info. may be.

Call the place you bought it from. Also check out the "Boats and Motors" forum above in the outdoor activities area.

Otherwise google the motor. Try calling a marine place and play dumb about the motor. They should have the answers.

got it taken care of. went to a place to buy motor oil and they confirmed the 50:1. got out on the water with it for the first time, out on bald eagle. checked four or five different spots before we hit em. then went for about 20-25 in an hour and a half or so. few sunnies, but mostly crappies. biggest ones were 9".

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

      Anyone going out for the opener this weekend? I'll be too busy trout fishing, but I'm all booked up for the month of May on the Croix

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
