  1. 242, saw a big doe and a nice buck Friday bow hunting, then just a couple small fawns the rest of the weekend.
  2. Go with a Suzuki or Yamaha 4stroke and you won't regret either
  3. I have it set to auto right now. I can see the bottom only if I use the split zoom feature, but not in the standard viewing mode. I asked Lowrance again and they seem to think it's a transducer problem. Guess I'll have to mess with re-installing the new one.
  4. I'm guessing you're referring to the contrast right? The DSI doesn't have a sensitivity setting that I know of. I think it's at about 60% right now. I didn't monkey with it too much as I've only used it a couple times now, but it's something I can try. Thanks
  5. I have a new Elite 5 DSI that works great until you hit about 35 ft deep in 800/khz and about 50ft in 455/khz mode. It still reads the depth, but the bottom content fades away. This is happening at all speeds, even down to under 1mph. Anyone seen this issue before on this unit? Any advice? They sent me a new transducer to try, but after spending good money to have the original professionally installed, I don't want to rip it all apart and start over if I don't have to. Thanks much
  6. Ok, so I've never installed a fishfinder and my boat is up at the cabin so I can't look at the wiring on the existing unit I get there. My question is..do I need to buy some wiring and connections that will hook up to the battery..then connect to the wiring(power cable) included with my new unit? For some reason, I thought the cable would come with ends that do directly to battery. Also, for the fuse they show in the diagram, should I just connect up to the fuse box, or do I need to use an inline fuse? I'm electrically challenged so I'm sure it's much more simple than I think. I just don't want to spend the money to have a dealer install it. Thanks
  7. I'd take the time to make a pile of homemade lindy's, spinner rigs, pre tie some 3-way rigs. maybe get into making your own jigs, paint some of your old jigs.
  8. Thanks all, the only reason I'm leaving it til Spring is because it's up north at the seasonal cabin. No chance I'll forget about doing it. It'll bug me all Winter knowing what a bonehead I was.
  9. Lower Hay Lake (Whitefish Chain) http://www.pinenest.info/
  10. To make a long story short, I was winterizing my Yamaha F150 and accidently put in 4qrts Yamalube oil and 1qrt lower unit oil. My plan is to wait til Spring and drain everything out and replace with 5.5qrts of Oil like I was supposed to. I'm not planning on running the engine at all before doing this. Is there anything else I need to do to be sure all the lower unit oil is flushed out? Will draining and filling be good enough? Could this cause any issues with the engine? Thanks
  11. I had to install a new switch last year and now it runs in both on and off postion. I must have installed wrong..or the wrong switch. Not a big deal, I just use the compression check button to shut it off now.
  12. Someone explain how this hunt works. You show up Wed, get in line and then have first pick of areas? Do you need to designated a spot, or you just simply are the first to venture into the woods in front of the masses and set up where you want?? Are you running into people all day out there?
  13. you arrive in deer camp only to realize you finally put those trigger locks on last year and the key is 175 miles away... $40 gunsmith bill to follow..
  14. I really like my Gorilla Lounger hang on....once I get it set up. It's a bit of a beast to hang at around 20lbs. Wish I would have gone with a climber.
  15. I used one last Spring for turkey and found it difficult to set up and takedown seemed a bit strange. Ended up breaking a support..probably out of frustration and trying to force something. I found it impossible to set up and take down without having to stand on it at times to get the poles to fold in the correct position. kinda bummed for $179. Should still work fine with a broken support, but I might just sell it online and move on. Anyone interested? thing is like brand new with one small flaw now.
