  1. I just got a Beretta 687 Silver Pigeon II over/under, 20Ga. I was wondering which barrel, top/bottom, do most people shoot first at upland game? Thanks!
  2. Does anyone know of a device that will fit in the rear seat of an 04 Silevrado extended cab that would keep two dogs seperate? Thank You!
  3. Lake Recommendation

    I would like to plan a fishing trip near September 15. Can I get some recommendations on Minnesota walleye lakes that might be good around that date? Thanks, Joe
  4. Opinion of Prop

    I just purchased a 2003,Lund Mr.Pike 18' with a Mercury XR6 150 motor. I am considering putting a Hustler Aluminum prop, 14.1/4 X 21 pitch. I would appreciate any comments on the prop and size I'm considering. Thank You!!
  5. Being new to boating, I'm going to upgrade from a Merc. 125 to either a used 2000 Merc.135 Optimax or new 2003 Merc. 150 XR6. Which one does everyone feel would be the best choice? Thanks
  6. Hello everyone, I was thinking of getting a Mercury 125 but after reading the postings by Jody and some of the answers, I'm not so sure now. I know if I call a dealer and or Mercury they will tell me "best motor on the water" Hopefully I get a few more opinions than Jody has gotten so far? Thanx guys,
  7. I have a chance to trade up from the 125 that came on my Mr. Pike 1800 to a 150 at a heck of a price. Not knowing a lot about engines, how does everyone feel about switching motors? All pros and cons would be greatly appreciated!! I have a chose of the 150 EFI or 150 Classic. Thanks !!
  8. Synthetic Users?

    For those who use synthetic oil in motors with injector systems, what brand of oil do you use? I've found three brands and of course each claims to be the best on the market. Klotz,Amsoil, and Redline. Thought I would use what the majority uses. Sorry, I may have asked this question earlier, I think there were two votes for Amsoil. Thanks!!

  9. Does anyone see any advantage to using a synthetic 2-stroke outboard oil over the regular 2-stroke oil? Thanks!!
  10. I just purchased a 2003 Lund Mr.Pike 1800, with a 125 hp Mercury 2-stroke motor. First can I have some opinions on the motor? Secondly could I have some recommendations on which prop to use? Stainless Steel, Aluminum, what pitch, and questimate of top speed? I havn't had a chance to gt it on the water yet. Thanks !!
  11. Between the Yamaha 130hp 2 stroke and Mercury 125 2 stroke, which would be the better motor?? In terms of performance, power, and reliability. Thanks! Joe
  12. I'm thinking of purchasing a new rig. I would like to have opinions and comments on 2 stroke vs 4 stroke outboard motors. All that comes to mind is, when I had a 4 stroke lawn mower it seemed it needed something, valves, etc. Had a 2 stroke mower and for years just changed the plug, added fuel and lasted for ever. Thanks Joe
