    Riddle me this... fuel economy and RPMs suffering

    I would look closely at this thought. Our 300 Zuke always seems to be off on the amount of fuel burned and it's always on the pessimistic side. Our trip on Wednesday showed 70 gallons burned, but we could only force 62 gallons in even after letting the tank burp and vent. I know the fuel burn...

    I wouldn't let it discourage you. They'll turn back on. I think we're probably heading back down tomorrow and maybe Saturday to try again. I want to be there when it turns back on!

    Shurflo Bait Sentry Question

    I wanted to follow up on this in case anyone else finds themselves in a similar situation. We ran yesterday with one scoop of bait and had zero dead loss. 11 or 12 hours on the water and the chovies were still super lively at the end of the day. Turns out I was overthinking it...

    Westport 7-29

    Just wanted to give a quick update on our trip yesterday. Ran from Westport down to 46.20/124.50 and started trolling. Temp was good, clarity was ok. Clear enough, just not that blue you want to see. No love so picked up and ran west a bit. Settled back in and trolled out to 46.20/125.22 and...

    Westport Tuna Thursday 7-30

    It seats 14 of your closest friends and even has a wheelchair lift for the older folks, or a half tote. My brother in law bought it at auction last year from the hospital here in town.

    Westport Tuna Thursday 7-30

    On a side note...If you see us doing something stupid or going against the flow of traffic in the morning, please forgive us. We've only fished Westport a couple of times, and we're trying out our new tow vehicle, so we'll be working the bugs out.

    Hopefully nothing haha! I've just always heard 8 minutes is the perfect fill time for anchovies.

    Shurflo Bait Sentry Question

    Had the boat at the lake today and it took roughly 37 gallons to fill it to the bottom of the drain. I'm probably overthinking this and I'll just go ahead and run it as is, and then make any changes if needed. Thank you for the quick responses. You guys probably just saved me the cost of a new...

    Shurflo Bait Sentry Question

    Well that's a good question haha! I think Ryan figured it was around 40 gallons, but I've never actually tried to figure it out. I'm in the boat at the lake right now so maybe I'll try to figure it out.

    Shurflo Bait Sentry Question

    I think that would be ideal, but we just can't fit a valve in there.
