it is time to winterize
we could easily get freezing temps cold enough to break a engine block
live wells and wash down pumps need winterizing as well

don't get caught with a big repair bill this spring winterize NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

my best perch fishing seems always to be the month of november

inboards are great hp vs price and with a lot of care and extra work can also be used into the late fall and early spring
just have to be aware of the extra precautions needed and be willing to do the extra work

I'm hoping that this summer houdini act with the perch will make this fall/winter fishing fantastic.

Sorry inboard guys that have to winterize, this will be strictly an outboard Perchpalooza party on the lake!!!! :rotflmao

Man, I bet you could give someone a great deal on a HARD TOP AND A HEATER- :winker

And, Gee willikers- here it's getting close for most to close down the big lake fishing season and you have to make us all Envious! Well maybe "Hey Honey- do you know what I ("we" might work too) really need for a Christmas present??" :rotflmao

P.S. Thanks for all the input and info you and Hondam have contributed to the site all year. Not only a good sponsor but a great asset to Chitown! :respect
