    My Merc 4 stroke is a pain but it's mostly bevsuse there aren't any parts available. It's a 2008 50 hp 4 stroke and apparently they didn't make many. Powerhead is fine but people have a hard time doing any work on it. Mechanics mostly say they have never seen them except in salt water

    Hahahaha. I've still never been there but you always hear about 20+ bags but everyone you talk after coming back from soho is talking about 1-2 small fish or blanking

    Thanks again guys, I always use either 8-10 lb mono. Might get out for another experiment after work tomorrow

    Went again last night and caught 2! With a crank! Heck of it was they both bit with 2 ft of line out after the bait had already come off the bottom and was about to hit the boat. Also I ran up the holston thinking I could crank up smallmouth on some flats. The two I caught were a walleye and largemouth, that's what I get for thinking!!!

    Thanks for all the advice guys, probably going again today to try after work. Had to jig up some white bass yesterday just to feel a fish

    Went cranking last night with this thread in mind. Kept my boat on the bank and banged the lure off every log rock and rip rap in the TN river, 3 hrs no fish. Picked up a Shakey head and got a bite immediately. I wish I could say this was the first time this has happened. I was quite frustrated until Johnny paycheck "Colorado Kool aid" came on my Bluetooth speaker

    Doesn’t sound crazy to me, I’m in the same boat. I catch some with them but not many. I have a lot more luck with lipless

    If you ever want to break the curse, try swimming one through that eel grass type stuff that grows in the holston river in the late summer/early fall. Or of course flip them under docks!

    Surely you jest. They work in clear water too. And everything in between

    New boat

    Now that's my kind of boat! Congrats! Take that baby up above rankin bridge mid/late summer and throw some big lures and hang on
