    Speaking of which, I know your getting your boat back today but, The Big Game 90 has a buddy trip leaving Friday night and coming back Sunday
    afternoon/evening for two for $600. Basically $300 each if your interested.
    That's a bargain about $100 each saved for signing on together. And the Albie's have been on the chew.
    Get some more use out of those trolling rigs.

    Okay Scott, I'll give you my understanding of what the situation is.
    #1. What happens to fuel left in the carburetor is that it looses octane over time which makes it burn slower and cooler with the obvious loss of power and difficulty to ignite.
    Also if left long enough it will evaporate completely leaving behind a varnish like residue that can interfere with proper operation of the carb.
    As often as you have your boat out that shouldn't be a concern.
    Now, if you store your boat when the bite slows down instead of switching to target trout then it's a good idea to either drain the carb or run it until it's dry.
    #2. Try this, the next time you go to anchor your boat, pull 15-20 feet or more beyond where you want to be and drop your front anchor. Then back up over your chosen spot 30-40 feet while letting out your front anchor rode so your front anchor isn't dragging along and drop your rear anchor. pull on the front rode letting out the rear rode until you are centered over the chosen spot. Keep both rodes snug and that should minimise the movement of your boat.
    #3. You're more than welcome to anything I can do to help.
    One day I'll be down your way when I have some extra time and we'll fish together in your boat. I'm in La Sierra quite often as I have a couple of very close friends that live there but I'm usually pushed for time.
    As far as the rest, it's just time on the water and turns of the prop.
