I was out fishing this last weekend. Granted it was cold and windy, snowing sunday morning. Had to run with the choke pulled part way out. It died once and multiple times dogged down to the point where I lost 110v power in the house. I also couldn't have the low idle switch on. The time it died the low idle was on.

it's only 2 years old. I have also noticed that it is becoming harder to start. takes about 7-8 pulls after it has sat for a while. It was off from about 9pm sat until 7am sun. had to bring it in the house for about a half hour before it would fire up. I only run premium fuel and most of the time I put a little heet in the fuel as well.

anyone else had any issues with theirs? I'm wondering if it just needs a carb adjustment.

did your brakes work going down the highway? If you don't have a controller in the truck, I'm not sure it's the brakes that are locked up as they need power to be activated.

you could check the power to the break away box mounted in the house. the one I have has a test light on it.

Sorry for the delay.

I went to Portage on Saturday afternoon. Took the snowmobile as I don't have a wheeler right now. 8" of nice clear ice straight North of the ramp pretty much in the middle of the lake. Set up in 13' of water. Graphed a few fish but only had one bite. Flutter spoon with a minnow head. Must have just gotten the head and not the treble because it let go half way to the hole.

I was fishing for about an hour. My 4 year old wanted to go home and I remembered everything but a light, so dusk forced us off the lake anyway. Ice cleats were necessary. Not sure what the recent snow will do as it sounds like we should get a good wind tomorrow that will blow it all to shore.

per the Delaney's fishing report on Facebook, Fishhook had about 8" going out from the boat ramp on the west side. They said Island had about 9" on the whole lake (I find this crazy as the main lake didn't look like it locked up until about 2 weeks ago, but i could see the west arm having that much), sounded like about 8" on Potato.

Depending on what the day brings, i may try Portage. Will report back if i do.

FWIW, I have a eskimo propane 4 stroke purchased 2 years ago with a 10 inch bit. it's a little slow spinning and heavy, but has plenty of power and doesn't stink. Might be something to consider.

I am in the market for a new underwater camera. my dad's cheapo black and white that we have been using for years bit the dust last season.

I have been looking at the lower end Marcum and Vexilar's. looking for something with a 7" screen that also has video out. Also looked at the wifi Marcum that comes without a screen. I have a smart TV in the wheel house and i think the wifi ones come with a video out as well.

anyone have a preference? things you like/dislike? I checked out the floor model Marcum at L&M, but the Vexilar wouldn't power on so not much of a comparison.
