Fellas I need some trolling motor advice

Appreciate it guys. The cordless (or corded) foot pedal is/was something I'm giving serious thought to. What scared me off was reading various reports from people saying they had absolutely no feel & that using them was awkward (this was specifically talking about the Minn Kota) I'm really not oppo...

which fishfinder/gps to get

I'm debating if I should upgrade from my $100 Eagle fish finder next year. My questions includes is does down imaging and side imaging that much of a difference when locating fish over what was out several years ago? Does this make any difference over 200 feet of water salmon fishing as oppossed to...

Carb question

1995 E25REOR, the larger carb appears to be from a earlier model. perhaps a 90 to 92 model. as long as the carb is off a 35 (wich it looks like it is but hard tellin without more pics) and your manifold is the same as the 35, slap it on there and you should be good to go... looks like the 25 carb i...

Rod and reel suggestions- First time post

Where in all the singular references to "a more 'serious' rod and reel" in various forms throughout his post do you see anything mentioning multiple rods? While I don't agree with this in the slightest, if it is in fact his point to get multiple rods for $100-$125 I would forego my previous advice ...

1980's Johnson/Evinrude 20/25hp conversion to 30hp with pics

Nice video of the old 20 screaming around......although my head is now kinked lol. The 72' you had was the small 22ci block which was used on the 20 and 25hp's up until 77' I believe when the bigger 31.8ci block began being used. Those old 22ci motors were very light and had a great power to weight...

25 to 35 hp Johnson Powerhead

Has anyone replaced their 25 hp powerhead with a 35 hp unit on a 2000 Johnson motor (jet). I'm think of doing the swap if everything fits well. I have the larger carbs already on it. Thanks not sure what hp's were available in 2000 but the 20,25,30 and 35hp motors all have the same powerhead and th...
