I've been trolling threads for a few months and just joined. Tons of great info, thanks for sharing all this knowledge. 2001 Nitro 700LX Merc 75 43lb TM. Picked it up in '15, storage kept, for $3K with only 62 hours on it. Best buddy deal I've ever made. I owned a 96 Mastercraft FishnSki 120'rude,sold it in 05, learned a lot of rookie mistakes. Got a 100 hr service, spent a few 100 on trailer, spot welded, bunkers, winch/gear etc. After much forum and youtube surfing, added HDS Gen 2 Touch 9 at bow, a 7" networked w Structure Scan at side of drivers windshield area. This forum has been huge help for all kind of issues. Been fishing Lowes Creek and South Dam (Indian/Buck Creek, some TX Island) at Toledo Bend (Beaumont/Houston area resident) for 30 or so yrs. Conroe about 20 times over the last 20 or so yrs. Glad to be aboard, and thanks again for all this info!
