New 90hp outboard

Question

rayguy

Looking for opinions on which 90hp motor to get for mostly fishing.  Which brand trolls down the best especially for trolling crank baits. Will be on a 18 1/2 foot boat.

Yamaha or Mercury 4 strokes.  Both have options for rpm control which is handy for getting down for slower trolling speeds.

I have used both in recent years in 4-stroke models (75 hp) and I would use both in the future.  I have not had a problem with either one in the past 8 years.

I'm a big fan of Suzuki, based on my and my neighbor's experience.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!

      I just cut it out, dip it in the breading, fry it fins up/meat down, and eat the meat off like you are eating oysters.
