i have a 50 hp yamaha 2 stroke outboard '97... this weekend i went out all day and it ran perfect as usual... on the way in we stopped to try our last spot. When we went to leave i cranked it up and it started off fine, then lost power while cruising. i thought it was the oil, checked it, it was fine. i cranked it back up and it would run, sputter, then die. cranked again, same result, run, sputter, die... it only kills while idling, if i give it some gas it runs fine. i was thinking maybe i need to change the fuel filter??? any help would be appreciated!

just curious... What would be the best performing prop for a 16ft flat (almost flat) with a 50hp yamaha... size? pitch? etc

this pic is also legit, but as you can see that the red is not 90 lbs, and the catfish is not .003 oz's... lol

Has anyone been out to the trash pile lately? I haven't been in a while just wondering if there is still 100 boats fighting for spec's??? Are they still even biting? Any report would be appreciated.

yes, if you hold the brake and stay on the gas it will stay running.

A comment titled: glasses in response to a report titled: Best sunglasses for fishing

i have a pair of Maui jim banyans... by far the best glasses i've ever owned... in my opinion, much better fit than the costa's but that all depends on your face as well. i agree with most below definitely get the amber lense... whatever glasses you decide, go amber!

A comment titled: if it means anything in response to a report titled: enough engine?

i have a 16ft cc lakesport with a 50 yamaha 2 stroke... when i first bought it it would get right under 40... completely empty... but after you put everything in it including ice chests and 2 big people i'll get 33... no more... which is plenty to me, i cruise around at about 25 and i'm satisfied with that.

A comment titled: good water in response to a report titled: fishing in Vermillion Bay

when i think "good water" i think of not only clearity but movement... if you find an outlet with water flowing around a point and it's chocolate... could very well still be "good water"

A comment titled: 50hp in response to a report titled: 50 yamaha 2 stroke question

i ran it this past weekend... after tinkering with the fuel filter, fuel lines, spark plugs and anything else i could think of it seems to be running better... i haven't been able to put it in the water yet, but this weekend i will find out for sure... thanks, i really appreciate all the help!

A comment titled: ver bay in response to a report titled: fishing in Vermillion Bay

wherever you launch just fish the marsh, find good water, you should be able to come up with reds and cats... but i'd be willing to put up money that you scratch out on spec's! lol good luck!

A comment titled: catfishhunter in response to a report titled: Cold Weather Cattin

i fish the same area all the time... the only thing we are having any luck with right now is cats. what kind of boat do you have? i have a 16ft lakesport center console grey with a 50hp yamaha.

A comment titled: tide in response to a report titled: How important is the tide?????

i agree with Fuscia... "Go and go often"... if your like me just go every chance you get, don't fish by the tide just be aware of what the tide is doing. But if you go and go often you will learn everything youself... be aware when you quit for a while everything changes and you have to start from scratch!

A comment titled: i see you in response to a report titled: Fish?

i've been there before... if you see them, they see you. they will not bite... it's like they freeze. i did the exact same thing in Miller's lake last year... very frustrating.

A comment titled: hebert's in response to a report titled: Public boat landing

A comment titled: update in response to a report titled: 50 yamaha 2 stroke question

i just tried to look at it after work before dark... i checked all the plugs... not sure, might get another new set and make sure... i didn't have enough time to take off the fuel filter, but i will do that tomorrow... the primer ball seems to be working fine, i pump and it gets hard (wow that sounds bad). what other way could i check that? i also checked the fuel line inside the gas tank... all clean

March 05, 2010 at 6:52pm
A comment titled: 50TLR in response to a report titled: 50 yamaha 2 stroke question
