I recently put a carb kit and plug in my old strikemaster lazer with a Tecumseh motor. It was leaking gas into the cylinder when laid down, but otherwise ran fine. Now after the carb kit(tillotson brand), it will only run good with the choke on slightly. Drives me nuts because it didn't used to be that way. Any ideas why?

Same thing happened to me. I was fishing a local lake and had a spot all to myself and was doing really good. Couple days later, I got neighbors and the fishing was over. O well, that's how it goes. Good thing I have lots of spots

I don't think its the battery or the transducer. I've used four different batteries and two transducers with mine and its always like that. I make sure the ducer is level/clean/below the ice, all the obvious stuff. Just the way they are. I normally run my gain at 45-50/50 if I have a small jig in 30 fow. Bigger things like walleye spoons I turn it down to 35-40/50. If you ever get it to work with less gain let me know how, cause I 've been using mine on high gain for years!

I bought an Ice 55 the first year they came out(2009 I think), and I have the same thing. I called and talked to customer service when it was new and they sent me a new transducer. It didn't do anything different than the original. I just use mine with the gain cranked most of the way up all the time. Strange I know, but it works so I just keep using it. Doesn't seem to effect the battery any, because I still get similar user time out of my Bird as my Dad does out of his Vexilar.

I too find it saddening. Seems like it takes years to get populations up, and weeks to kill half of them off. Mother nature sure can be cruel sometimes.

I haven't been there either, but I know the guy who put his house through and I guess it fell through five inches last Sunday. I've not personally checked any lakes recently, but second hand info I've got is that most of the Faribault area has 4-6". This rain wiped out most of the snow, so things should improve quickly.

I was in your shoes three years ago when we bought our first boat. I ended up buying a Lund because the layout and options suited my needs better than the Crestliner. So far I absolutely love it and wouldn't change a thing. Ultimately get the one that suits your needs best. On another note make sure you get a good SS prop, it makes all the difference in the word.

I have a Marcum vs825sd and the camera body stopped working at three years old. They wouldn't warranty it so I had to buy a new $300 camera for it. So I guess I'd by the aqua view.

I measured ice yesterday on Faribault lakes, and got 2-3" average. Some thicker spots, but it was where ice had blown in and piled up. I'll report back after the snow is done and I can go see the damages.

I use hockey tape, water and cold doesn't hurt it and it offers good grip. It seems to outlast the rod and reel, as I've never had to redo one before.
