Hoping to get some wisdom on a motor issue...
Was running down Bayou Dularge 90% throttle and my outboard motor killed. It is a late 1990's 115hp Johnson. Well put it in neutral and tried to refire and get underway. Motor was real sluggish (like a dead battery.) I toggled to my other battery which was a little worn after 3 days out and both batteries were sluggish. I finally got it fired but the motor ran really ruff and would kill at idle. I opened it up to get to the launch as long as I stayed away from high throttle it ran but hi-throttle would kill it again. I didn't have time to mess with it Sunday evening, but I plan to check a few things out. Charge batteries, spark plug, check fuel, fuel line. I have been reading a little and hear maybe a rectifier or stator?
Any other thoughts or ideas.
Hey Guy's and gal's,
Anyone been perch jerkin yet? I am most familiar with upper Lafitte. I don't want anyone's spots but just an idea if they have come into the shallows yet or if they are still in deeper water... The weather looks good for a trip on Friday with the kids(ages 10, 7, and 3). Yes and they all love to fish. So any help would be great.
Looking at trying a bass fishing trip. I haven't really bass fished before. I have a lot of perch jerked and salt water fishing experience.
I am looking at maybe trying upper Lafitte. Bayou Gauche, Salvador, Des Allemands, or bonnet carrey spillway. Any info would be a help. Baits... presentation... deep water. shallow??? Looking at maybe going Sunday.
Not looking for locations. Just a little advice.
I was planning on taking the wife out fishing this week in the boat. Kinda caught between a perch jerking trip and a redfishing trip. My usual spots are in Bayou Gauche for perch jerking. Curious if anyone is catching anything out there right now... The second thought was to go in upper Lafitte Salvador, The Pen, Bayou Perrot, or Bayou Rigolets if I go that rought reds would be the hunted.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. It has been a long time since the wife has been out and I just want something to tug on the end of the line for her...
Hello all, Was wondering if anyone has been in the bonnet carrey spillway lately. I was thinking of makin a crawfishing/ fishing trip. Never crawfished before. Any thought's or recommendations would be great.
I was curious about the lafitte area. I haven't fished it in years. I was gonna try to make a run and fish Lake Salvador for reds, trout, whatever bites... Not looking for any honey holes. Curious what the action is like in the area. Are the reds and trout in there right now or do I have to run all the way to little lake?
or do I stick with perch jerking in Bayou Gauche? Went earlier in the summer and caught some nice perch and catfish...
Let me know what you think please.
Thanks to all
Taken a ride to Grand Isle the weekend of 6/7-10. I have been hearing the usual reports about trout on the beach. I was curious what the situation is with crabs in the surf. We have gotten skunked the last few years in June. Not looking for secrets just curious if anyone has caught any or not. A lot of extra gear to lug if there aren't any down there. Let me know what you think. Thanks in advance.
I am thinkin of makin a trip to the Grand isle fourchon area to fish of the side of the road.
Anyone know what the conditions are like down there right now, oil, fish, wind, gnats... I haven't been since october or so. Any info would be great. I want my sister and her boyfriend to hook up to something down there...
Does anyone know a place that is trust worthy to do a repair on a 1976 15hp johnson. I am not quite sure what the problem is. I had the carborator cleaned and fuel pump looked at. It just will not fire up. My next though is the spark plugs any ideas... Please.
I am making a trip to Grand Isle to fish Thursday. I was planning on fishing the pier at night for trout. I haven't been in a while. I was also gonna do some off the road fishin with my father in law and son in a 12ft flat. I usually fish the marsh by Fouchon and the pits. I have spots and i am not lookin for soemones spots. I am just curious if the trout and reds have started to show up yet. Any stories are greatly appreciated...
Oh yeah and how bad are the gnats... My son is 4.5years old.
If ya catch my drift.
I was thinkin about fishin the Bayou Gauche area. I fished there 8months or so ago and got scunked. I have a 12ft flat. Any ideas of places i can go and get my son and wife in one the fish.Catauchie, Des allmends, spillway,????
