I currently use a hustler prop, and I have been satisfied with it. The nice part about them is the hub is interchangeable of the actual prop. Meaning if you wreck the blades, the hub is still good, and a replacement is a lot less expensive.

Depending on what motor you have you might want to check with your dealer, the reason being they will fit the differant motors, but the exhaust might not work properly.

Mine's been working great for 3+ years now. No problems. If you get a bad ding in the prop the replacement is much cheaper.

Is it a stainless steel prop? 3-blade prop?

My boat came with one installed. They didn't size it correctly and since the hustler tends to be a bit shorter than the props designed for my engine the dealer ended up using non-standard hardware to make it work. It worked ok, and was easy enough to have fixed but I've since switched to a properly sized stainless and my boat has better top end, better hole shot, and is quieter than when it was equiped with the Hustler.

The Hustler prop is one of a line of props produced by Turning Point Props. They offer a good variety with a stainless, which I currently have on my boat. I like the way my boat works with the prop. They do have a nice website.

Crystal Pierz used alot of these. They told me this spring when I got my boat that the hub has a neoprene bushing or something inside the hub so that if you hit something there is a little give in the motor. They told me that after switching to these they have seen a decrease in lower unit repairs etc. I am just running a aluminum one on my boat right know and I am pretty happy with it.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
