Replaced the fuel lines, fuel filter (visible), primer bulb, and new prop. Ran like a champ yesterday (07/03) and was out at The Race (out of Mystic) in no time flat. @ 5000 RPM, she was cruising on glass @ 34 MPH, and that wasn't WOT. IT was amazaing how flat the waters were just N of Race Rock in 300'. There was chop area, with birds working like crazy. Threw plugs while the wife jigged. The only fruit, for 20 minutes of fishing, was a Spiny Dogfish. The worst part is that I didn't have my normal gear for jigging, so the wife hooked that puppy at around 250' on a spinning setup....LOL. She wasn't happy to see it was a doggie after all that.
The water was about 67-68* surface, and bait was down there, along with fish, just wasn't setup to hit it proper.
I replaced the prop cuz the SS one on there was nearly completely spun....all chewed up in the hub and obviously twisting. WAs nice to get that flipped out and now to have the SS rehubbed for the spare.
Didn't get out today, family picnic and all, but hopefully tomorrow afternoon. I'm becoming a pro at the 1.5 hour drive from Canton to Mystic now...since it has been daily for the past week...
