It's actually not that bad. My dad's boat is 17', has the wrap around windshield with bimini and full plastic front and side curtains. We have fished on lake of the woods with the full setup and not really had an issue. It sure is nice to keep the elements off though. Last few trips have sucked because my boat is side console and no bimini. Still good fishing though

Nice work those are nice colored fish too. Nothing shallow yet up here that I've found, but plenty of folks out trying for sure. Hopefully this weekend.

Well I got out fishing at my parents lake place this weekend and was able to try the unit out with mine and my dads transducers. As poor as we did fishing, at least I had success in narrowing down my issue. Indeed - it is the transducer. Checked, rechecked, and checked again and the same answer every time, so I am happy as a clam. Ordered a new one and that should be the end of it. I wish the rubber insulation on the cable was a little more stout, I think that's where my problem was. But now that I know, I'll try a little harder to keep sunfish from wrapping me up.

100% true from what I saw yesterday. A couple lakes with roadside access (no boats) and people were stacked on top of each other shore fishing. Now. It did look like they were catching fish as well, but I've never that many people out. Still not sure there are docks out, I didn't see every lake yesterday but it still looks like docks are on shore.

I'm in the Pelican lake area and have not seen any of them out by me yet. Ice has barely gone out if it even has on Pelican itself. Chances are it will be awhile for any of the state accesses, thinking right before opener. Might have luck in DL at one of the accesses by the beach or at Holiday, sometimes they get those in sooner.

Must be the extra filter volume. Just struck me as odd that they would sell a 4qt fill for a 4.5qt system. But yeah, so related to your point, I've been seeing Briggs and Stratton engines advertised that they never need an oil change?? Says just check and top off as necessary... I don't know that I would be comfortable with that

Yamaha Outboard oil capacity

I'm hoping someone has dealt with this before and has an answer because I cannot find one. I've changed my oil a few times on my Yamaha F75 using the oil change kits you can buy instead of buying the pieces separate. This year I'm buying the individual pieces because those change kits seem to be getting more expensive than they really ought to be. Looking for the oil filter number, I found the oil capacities, and I see the capacity for my engine is 4.55 quarts. This is news to me, because every change kit I've ever purchased has had 4 quarts in it. I imagine I've checked the oil level in the past and not been concerned, but, anybody know anything about this??

Oh man, that looks good. Smash burgers are a favorite of mine, I bought a cast iron griddle that I can put on the grill just for that. Underrated. Cheers!

If you have a lower unit oil hand pump you could leave the top oil level plug in, screw the pump end into the drain plug hole and pump oil until you feel it pressurize. You will know if its an issue by a hissing, bubbling, or immediate pressure release on the hand pump. If it is cracked you could check with Tim's outboards in Hackensack, he may have a used lower unit replacement. Last one I bought for a similar vintage johnson was about $165-$180 IIRC but that was probably over 10yrs ago.

From what I have heard, public launches will be open as long as people observe the social distancing guidelines. Otherwise county or state may be able to shut them down on an individual basis.
