I bought a boat from a buddy and the [watch your language] wasn't quite sure of the gas to oil mixture ratio. I think its 50:1. Its an 87 mercury. Anyone know if thats right? Thanks.

All of the older ones that I have used were all 50:1 and my 89 Evinrude is 50:1. I would think that you would be safe with that ratio. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././JImbo

I would say 50:1 as well but you may want to call your local marine repair shop as well. I borrowed my father in laws boat and he told me 50:1 but when we got on the lake the motor was running awful. So I look right where the gas line connects to the outboard and it says 100:1!! Added some more gas and she ran fine. Guess my father in law needs to learn how to read! grin.gif

Get yourself some Amsoil 2 cycle and follow the directions on the bottle.One mix fits all 2 cycles so,no need to worry or wonder about mixes for any 2 cycle again.It's good stuff.

I second the Amsoil! Your motor WILL run smoother, smell better, and won't smoke ya out. You can run it 100/1 or if you're not comfortable at that ratio, run 80/1. It costs a little more, but WELL worth it. Be sure to get the Amsoil Sabre outboard premix 100/1. You'll be impressed!

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
