Prop Repair and question on Lowrance x15.

Question

Sandmannd

I have a couple of questions. First, it looks like my prop has taken some heavy abuse the last couple of times out. I know I hit some shallows, looking at it today it's bent up. Is there a good place to take it to have it bent back into shape and have some of the notches filled up? How much does something like that run? Should I just look at getting a new prop? Also, my other question is that my Lowrance X15 has moisture inside the screen. It's always stored inside a storage compartment. If I leave it in the sun for a day or so it will go away but it always comes back. How do you get that out of there? Thanks for your help in advance.

www.soderblooms.com for the prop needs and not much to do with the x-15. Mine will do that on real foggy days but usually a day in the sun take care of it. I dont think theres anything, short of sending it into Lowrance to fix it, that you can do for it. Keep the shield gurad on it while storing and that should help.

If you're near the north metro, contact Forumla Propeller in Columbia Heights/Fridley area. They'll let you know if they can fix or it you need a new one.

I've heard good things about soderblooms, but I would like someone closer to the metro as I live in St. Paul. It won't save me much if I have to do a 4 hour trip to repair the prop. Thanks though, when I'm up that way I will have to check them out.

Found a guy in Forest Lake named Lance. Took it in Tuesday and had it back Friday. Only cost me $50 and the prop looks like brand new. He does excelant work. Took the boat out on Friday night and it moved through the water smoother than it did before.

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
