Ideas???

Question

BigGrassBass

I've got an old (20 yrs. or so) Strikemaster XL2000 (I think) and yesterday the recoil that pulls the starting string back broke. Not the string, the recoil action is not there any more. I was able to use a pliars and move the wheel backwards to wind the string and continue drilling holes and fishing.

My question is if this can be an easy fix or do I have to take the whole thing apart?

Anyone else ever have to do this? How did you fix it?

Thanks,

BGB

StrikeMaster sells recoil repair kits on their web site for $12.50 if you want to do the job yourself. Otherwise a place like D-Rock Center in New Brighton or the service guys at StrikeMaster in Big Lake, or any authorized StrikeMaster repair facility could certainly do the job. I've never had to repair the one on my old MagIII (and I'm not looking forward to the day that I have to) but a certain amount of dis-assembly would be required. Check out the on-line manuals for Techumseh TC motors for detailed instructions. There a link posted to it on this forum a couple of weeks back concerning a question about carberator adjustment, or Google it. Good Luck.

Thanks Stu. I've actually got to go to Monticello on Wednesday for work so I'm going to swing up to Big Lake while I'm there and get the parts/have it fixed I think. I've still got to call them and see if they can fix it (I'm not a handy guy).

You're welcome. On a job like that it might be better to have the pros handle it if you aren't comfortable doing it. The manual has a lot of good information for maintenance and troubleshooting, I found it to be helpful.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
