Re: B & W Resort Ranger Spare Tire Cover Ripped off

Consider yourself fortunate it was just a cover. Some POS took my whole spare tire while parked at the Delta after launching a few years ago - Ladd's.

Re: Berkley Nanofil - Real or Hype??

Whether it's Nanofil or some other braid product, once you try it with a floro leader, I think you'll wonder why you waited. Virtually no twist when drop shotting and sensitivity increases 5 fold. You just have to learn to tie a braid to floro knot.

Re: Lowrance issues

Take it off "auto range" & put in 30, 40, 60 feet etc. Whatever depth you will be fishing. Set the "mode" to shallow water & that should speed it up some. If you want to meter deeper than what you set, just change it. Once you've done it a few times it becomes second natu...

Re: Tilt goes down, won't go up

Thank you everyone for the responses. I ordered a cowling trim switch & it arrived last week. Disconnected the old one and plugged in the new one before installing to make sure that was the problem - worked great.. Removed the old one, popped in the new one. All's well. Thanks.

Thanks Big -
The tilt works fine up/down from the throttle handle and from the front deck panel. Motor cowling switch goes down but won't go up. You think that's a relay & not the switch?
