Fast water

If it is a place I really want to fish I point the nose of the boat upstream and keep the TM in the water just enough to control the boat. If I don't want to fish the area I will fire up and run through it.

Man yall got a lot of jets around Meramec River MO!

Yeah it was a great trip. My first time at Grand Lake and we hit it right at the spawn! :D It was very cool sight fishing that much. Now I am ready to get out my OBJ and play with some smallies here in OH.....but we had rain the last few days and the rivers are blown out :cry:

Man yall got a lot of jets around Meramec River MO!

I had a great trip and tourney. I finished 5th out of 35 boats. It was a 3 day tourney. I had 18-03 day 1, 15-03 day 2, and 19-14 on day 3 for a 53-04 3 day total. I missed big bass for day 1 and the tourney by 1 once. Not bad for fishing solo in a team format tourney. day 1: https://im1.shutterfly....

I was on my way back from Grand lake heading east on I44 and must have seen at least 10-15 OBJ's! I am a loner here in OH with the OBJ.

Trolling motor on jet boats

I am running a 67# Motorguide 24V on my Tracker Pro17 60/40 jet. I moved all three group 24 batteries under the front deck.
I like the idea of adding bricks (or anything else) to simulate the weight of the extra battery before you make a decision.

New bearings/seals kit and water pump kit questions

I chicken'd out after I pulled the shaft out since I didn't have access to a press. So I dropped it off at lunch to get the bearings/seals replaced at the local boat shop and picking it up this evening. Now I just have to put it back together.

New bearings/seals kit and water pump kit questions

I am going to replace the bearings in my jet pump and the impeller for the cooling system. Is there any tricks or any problems that I need to watch out for? I know to install the bearings I am going to need to have access to a press and I am trying to get that lined up still. I have a model L pump.

Hello all

I am sure with a prop motor the weight distribution is ok, but for a jet we need a little more weight in the front.

Not a rookie anymore!

It has held up to 2 good hits already but I don't want to push my luck to far. I will have to find some washers to fit in there.
