Prop repair

14 posts in this topic

Hit something hard at the isle access and did a bit of damage to the ole prop and would like to see if it can be fixed or if i need to buy a new one. Any recomendations on a good prop shop somewhat close to Big Lake?

I went through a shop in east St. Cloud who does real nice work. They let me trial a number of props and repitched a prop for me a couple of years ago. Quality work and nice prices. I think they have a Sauk Rapids address, and they are located off highway 23 east behind the Hitchin Post. I don't want to mention their name in case they are not on the approved list of this site.

Feel free to post the name of the business. That's not a problem.

I'm guessing it's leading edge propeller?

You can also check into shipping your prop to Soderblooms. They have a pretty good turn around time.

It is Leading Edge and if you mention their ad on Craig's List through the 30th you will get a 10% discount.

Havent been able to get ahold of them yet(must be busy). What is the price range for having a prop fixed? I know it will be more $ but i was considering just getting a new one.

Not sure out there, but I went to Lances in Forest Lake it was $50. I think that's about the general price. You can spend three times that on a new prop. You could always get new and then get this one fixed and you would always have a spare.

Dakota, I have the very same motor on my 17 Angler SS. I found that the Yamaha props worked better than did the other brands. I trialed a couple of different ones and settled on the 17 (I think). I paid $75.00 for a fresh-made used Yamaha aluminum prop.

I took my 20HP Johnson prop to Leading edge and it was only 20-30, which didn't seem bad. Now I have to take my prop in for my new 25, more rocks...

Hit a rock hard this weekend on my I/O. Luckily it only took a chunck out of one blade. Since I pass thru Forest Lake daily, I'm going to give Lance's a try for the first time. Since it is only one blade the fix is only half the normal $50 charge.

With lake levels being so low (at least 10-12"+)- I think I'll be keeping my spare on until the levels come back up, or I wreck another prop - which ever comes first.

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.
