    Ah you'll get a new one soon so this one needs to have as little hrs on it as possible

    That's about right. When Dad had his dragged out, both he and I would run the same rpms which was 5900 on my rig and I think I hit 5800 on his running 72 and I hit 79 in mine. Since he has blown it twice now it is closer to stock as it is going to get and we may end up having to re set it up

    Lol. I hear that. I honestly think the 24 is too small for the 200s. Dad is having issues with his and we are thinking about trading the 24 for a 26. However, I think his is other things as well. I think if you get a 26 Raker you'll be fine but I'd still check the motor height before changing props.

    What you need to do one day when you have nothing else to do is to head to the lake and just run and experiment. Run loaded and unloaded and you'll figure out where your jack plate needs to be set, what prop you need and everything else you need to know. 😎

    Cranking

    I use Vicious fluorocarbon for cranking and well pretty much everything. Use nothing but 12# for all my crankbaits, except 8 and 10 XDs, until this yr. Was scared to go less but not anymore. I can get my crankbaits down and bouncing around and I won't retie unless I break off which is hardly ever. I sling the living crap out of my baits and Vicious fluorocarbon has held up tremendously. Again like Andy and Steve said, to eachs own.

    You should be able to tell the spline and pitch on the prop via hub. Dad runs a 14½x24 Raker on his 200GT/201 Pro combo all we can hit is 50 if we are lucky. Anywho, back to you. Check the hub and you should see it. May need a flashlight though lol.

    Yeah my wife isn't happy when I tell her I have to buy stuff. Big argument! She gets over it eventually lol

    Cranking

    Don't forget line size makes a difference too. Most people including myself use 12lb fluorocarbon but I think I may be going down to 10 on some cranks. Color will also make a big difference. Trial and error bro!

    Cranking

    What Andy said lol. It all depends on what I'm fishing for my boat position, but once that first fish gets in the boat I try to duplicate it and since I don't have a spot lock trolling motor, I have to triangulate to keep my position

    Cranking

    LMAO!! I was waiting for someone to say something along this line.. I'm a cranking fool. If there is one bait I have tied on year round that's it other than a jig. There are many things to take into consideration and everyone has hit the key points on fishing them. I've caught fish without digging bottom but here lately I've had to "finesse" those things on rocks and have been getting bit like no other. Just like most other techniques, it's trial and error! Keep at it and it will pay off especially with the post spawn and summer patterns coming up 😎. Hard to beat a crank at those times!

    I honestly don't think the front is going to hurt the bite much. 18.21 wins with 5.4LM

    Boone Results

    Had a blast as usual. Can't wait til the next one
  19. First tourney of the year is just 2 days away. I'm sure most of us are anxious as all get out, so what's it going to take to win. My guess is 15.52 with a 4.2 brownie bringing home big fish

    Tourney#1 Weight Prediction

    y'all kill me. I think I had 21lbs in 1 fish Tuesday during practice..... WRONG FREAKING SPECIES!!! Couldn't get that thing turned so I dunno how big it was, although a 5-6lb carp fights pretty good and I did land that one lol
