    Re: Going to start fishing again!

    This morning I changed the water pump, gear oil, and plugs. Then my son and I headed down to Melones. The boat ran great, we ran it for over 1 1/2 hours averaging 20 mph cruising and it had no hiccups at all. It ran very smooth through the small whitecaps/chop. I can’t wait tell after the first of the year to start fishing again and see if we can hook up with a sturgeon and some stripers.

I live about 20 minutes from Melones Lake but like to fish Hogan, the delta and the bay targeting bass, stripers, salmon, halibut and sturgeon. I look forward to contributing to the board again.

    Welcome back and congrats on a great find.
    That boat will be great in your neck of the woods at New Melones. Just in time for the upcoming trolling for Trout.

    Re: Going to start fishing again!

    Thanks, I built everything on my 46Wilyz from the ground up. It has a 5.3LS, 4l60, Dana 300, 14 Bolt and Dana 60 as running gear.

    The boat deal was great, the guy I bought it from was the son of the original owner, the owner had passed away 10 years ago and the boat had just sat with a cover on it. They now want to sell the property and needed the boat gone. He told me that I could haul it off for $500, all he told me was it was a 1995 Spectrum with downriggers. I showed up at the property and was completely surprised the boat was in great shape, had fishing gear still in it and 2 electric Scotty downrigger. It looked like the owner came home from fishin and parked the boat, his fishing license were still hanging on the throttle. I’ll have to figure out how to post pictures again. It was an amazing find.

    Awesome jeep!

    I'm looking daily for such a "deal" on a larger boat. I find them but every time so far they are sold when I call.

    Hope it's a fishy boat for you.
    Catch ya later ... hooks
