Prop

Question

8-Ball

OK- I have a 90 2-stroke Johnson, but it does not troll down enough for me. I don't want to mess with a drift sock. I have a trolling motor, and use it. But, there are times and situations, especially fishing after dark, where I don't want to drop the trolling motor in to troll. I also know about the add-on devices I could put on to the area above the prop. Don't really want that, either. What size prop would you suggest I look at so I can troll down slower? Again, I have a 90 hp 2-stroke pushing a 1750 Sportfish. Thanks in advance..

Sorry- current prop is 14X17.

I think to see any slow down at all you'll be compromising WOT performance greatly and to the extent of over revving.

ST- This would be a prop I would be using strictly for trolling-nothing else.

I see a 14x10 prop for heavy load. Propco part # *JJJJ-10SP.

I have no idea what to expect for trolling but like I said the RPMs will scream at WOT. You could call Jay Soderbloom and see what he says.

You're going to switch props just to troll?

Dropping the trolling motor every now and then sure sounds easier than changing props every now and then.

Yep- not that tough, just removing a cotter pin.

To each his own. Just make sure you have a spare prop nut and cotter pin with you for the time you drop it in the lake.

It gets changed before I drop it in-thanks for that key piece of advice just the same. I am looking for others recommendations about said subject- that is why I posted the topic, and that is what this forum is all about, I think. Take your sarcasm somewhere else.

If you decide to do this you will need to watch your RPM's and adjust your throttle position accordingly when moving in between fishing locations - otherwise, depending on where you end up with the prop you could be bumping up against the rev limiter.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
