Made the run to the island again last night. Weather wasn’t too bad for the most part till we got past Catalina. Got a little wet but very manageable. Got to Clemente at 4:45 and started to look around. There was 3 of us and we must of made 1,000 cast combined and nothing but short calicos n one legal barracuda. Didn’t see anyone else catch anything. Headed home at 11:00 and made it back in 2.5 hours. 135 miles and 63 gallons of fuel. Cant complain. Glad to have the motor back to 100%. Will try again next week.

Thanks man, yes motor is fully functional 100%. It basically a new motor. Now I have an issue with my bait pump. It stoped working, I hit it a few times and it works for a bit then stops again. It never ends.

I’ve got a couple pumps under the console. Quick snap wires. I don’t do the pricy pumps, as I haven’t had much better longevity from them. And I change all out at the end is the season, bait and both bilge.
