Big Ice Tray Ideas

Because Big Ice cubes last twice as long as the wet ice you purchase at the store, everyone will want big ice for their fishing trip, but here are some BIG IDEAS you may want to try as well.

In your Live Well
During hot days, the bait in your live well will die quickly.
So, most people add the store bought ice to help cool the water.
Well, it is only a temporary fix.
The store bought ice kills your bait because it changes the composition of the water.
The Big Idea: Make Big Ice with the water you fish in. Placing a few of these cubes in the live well makes the PERFECT ice to keep your bait active.

In your Bait Tray
As you get to those last bait trays, your ice has melted and your Ballyhoo are now mushy.

The Big Idea:
Line up Big Ice cubes under the bait tray. Because Big Ice last longer, this will keep your Ballyhoo nice and firm.

In your Freezer
Don’t get left behind when the fishing forecast is a “10”.

The Big Idea:
Be prepared for those days by “stocking up” on Big Ice.
It should take about 18 hours to freeze a tray depending on your freezer.
Once frozen, remove the cubes and relocate in your freezer, so you can make more full trays of Big Ice.

On the Weekends
Tired of having to run to the gas station for a bag of ice every time you want to ice down some drinks?

The Big Idea:
Pop out a few Big Ice cubes, and set in ice chest with your drinks.
To make your drinks ice cold, add a little water in the ice chest.

On your Sore Muscles
Do you have sore muscles from fighting a yellow fin tuna?

The Big Idea:
Add one of the Big Ice cubes into a gallon zip lock bag.
Then, wrap the bag with a thin cloth and hold to your sore muscle for 5-10 minutes.…

&lt;h3&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#0000FF&quot;&gt;Props: Aluminum vs. Stainless Steel

Aluminum Propellers vs. Stainless Steel Propellers!

The decision between purchasing an aluminum or stainless steel propeller can be difficult.
However if you fully understand the differences between them, your decision can be much easier.

The most common understanding of the difference is that stainless steel propellers perform better than aluminum propellers. This is only half true. Material (Stainless vs Aluminum) only accounts for approximately 10% of the actual performance of the propeller. The other 90% of performance is in the blade design.

Well designed aluminum propellers will out perform an average stainless steel propeller.
So it's important to research a propeller's performance before your purchase.
It is also important to try different pitches and brands to get your boat dialed in to the best possible propeller.

The advantage of a stainless steel propeller over aluminum is durability.
Stainless props can withstand more of the damage caused by small rocks, sand, or other loose objects in the water.

However, the disadvantage to a stainless propeller is that there is minimal "give" to the blades, so if you hit an object hard enough, there is a possibility of causing major damage to your lower unit is increased greatly.
With aluminum props, the blades will most likely sacrifice themselves before any damage is caused to your lower unit.

If you run in deep or familiar waters, or in salt/brackish water, a stainless steel propeller can be a good choice.
But it is important to always carry a spare propeller on board, and a spare aluminum is an inexpensive choice.…

&lt;h3&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#0000FF&quot;&gt;Props: How To Select A Propeller&lt;/h3&gt;

Choosing the Right Propeller?

To some, choosing the right boat propeller can seem like a job for a marine service center.
Anything that has to do with the backend of the boat can be a scary thing
Despite popular belief, choosing the correct propeller for a particular boat and motor is actually a fairly simple thing to do, once you understand what a propeller really is.

First think of propeller as a gear, whether it be on a car or even a bicycle.
The lower the gear, faster hole shot, more power, but revolutions are much faster so at a point you can only turn that gear so fast until you over rev the engine (or you legs).

Now think of your car stuck in only 5th or 6th gear, very slow out of the hole, little torque, but eventually it will catch up with itself so you can cruise to a good speed.

The same basic concept applies to propellers, except with a prop you are committed to only one gear.
So what to do now?
Find the prop size that will give the best overall performance.
Sound difficult?
It's really not.

Your engine has a recommended wide open throttle rpm range.

Let take an example of an 18' boat with a 125 hp engine with a rpm range of 4500-5500.
In most cases you purchase a boat with some sort of propeller on it.
Let's say this motor has a 21 pitch prop on it and at wide open throttle under a normal boat load, the engine turns 4900 rpms.
Well it's in the range so it's the correct prop, right?
Well yes and no.
For the health and longevity of the engine it's okay, but for overall performance, you want to run a propeller near the top of the range
Well how do you change the size to get that?

Remember this rule of thumb: For every 2" of propeller pitch, rpm's will change approximately 400 rpm's.
As you drop in pitch, rpm's increase, and as you go up in pitch, rpm's decrease.
So if we want to raise our rpm's we should choose a lower pitch prop.
Following the rule, going down to a 19 pitch should raise our rpm's to about 5300
That would help the hole shot and also gain us some more speed.

As you follow the rule of thumb, remember that sometimes rules are meant to be broken.
This is not an iron clad rule, sometimes varying 2" of pitch will only change rpm's by 200.
Switching prop brands or manufacturer, it can sometimes throw off the rule too.

At this point the most important thing to understand is that less pitch means more rpm's, more pitch means less rpms.
For your boat to perform at its peak, you need to run at the upper end of your engine's recommended rpm range.
That's it.
Once you're there and still want more speed, handling, lift, etc, that's when choosing the right propeller brand comes into play.

Here's a simple adjustment you can make to improvement performance under varying boatloads: If you normally run with one other person on board, use that boatload as your measurement when determining your wide open throttle rpm's.
But if you sometimes load the boat with 2-5 more people or try pulling a water skier or tube, get another prop 2" of pitch lower than your normal prop.
It will compensate for added weight and drag and make a huge improvement on performance in these circumstances.
But remember to keep an eye on you rpm's when running a lower pitch for these circumstances.

Most props have the size marked somewhere on the prop, either on the barrel, on the blades, or in the front or back of the propeller.
Use that pitch that you're currently running as your starting point.
If it's already running correctly then that pitch is your pitch.…

&lt;H3&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#0000FF&quot;&gt;Props: What Are Vent Holes?&lt;/H3&gt;

What Are Propeller Vent Holes?

Vent holes are holes behind each blade designed to aid in the hole shot of a propeller.
When accelerating from neutral, these holes allow some exhaust bubbles to flow through and flood the blades.

The prop is then spinning through more turbulent water, thus gaining RPM's and speed more quickly.

After approximately 1000 RPM's, the exhaust flows rapidly enough that is will bypass the holes and flow through the hub, eliminating any further slippage from the holes.…

&lt;h3&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#0000FF&quot;&gt;Props: What Is Prop Diameter & Rake?

What is propeller diameter?

Propeller diameter is distance across the imaginary circle that a spinning propeller makes.
It can be easily determined by measuring the distance from the center of the hub to the tip of one of the blades and multiplying that number by 2.

Diameters between different propeller manufacturers may vary slightly.

For example for a V6 outboard application, Turning Point uses a 14-1/4" diameter where a different manufacturer may use a 14-1/2" diameter.

This small variance does not affect your performance as much as the pitch and overall design.

However, larger diameter propellers - 15" or 16" diameter - are designed for larger boat applications - 23 ft +, and are not ideal for 15" - 22" foot run-a-bouts.
These larger boats need more blade area to push more water.

What is rake?
Propeller rake is the degree that a propeller blade is angled in relation to the hub
Props with higher rake typically have better speeds and greater lift.
The better performing propellers typically have between 20 - 30 degree rake angles.…

&lt;h3&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#0000FF&quot;&gt;Watersports Safety Code

WATERSPORTS SAFETY CODE:

Watersports are fun and challenging but involve inherent risks of injury or death. To increase your enjoyment of the sport and to reduce your risks, use common sense and follow these rules:

Before you start:
Familiarize yourself with all applicable federal, state and local laws, the risks inherent in the sport and the proper use of the equipment.

Know the waterways.
Always have a person other than the driver as an observer.
Skier/rider, observer and driver must agree on hand signals.
Never start out until skier/rider signals he/she is ready.

Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning from engine exhaust may cause injury or death.
Do not sit on the boat transom or swim platform while the engine is running.
These activities may lead to excessive CO exposure which may cause injury or death .
If you can smell engine exhaust while in the boat, do not stay seated in that position for prolonged periods.
Never “Platform Drag” by holding onto the swim platform or be dragged directly behind the boat.
An improperly tuned engine will produce excessive exhaust. Have your engine checked and corrected by a mechanic. Changing boat speed or direction relative to the wind can reduce or increase boat exhaust from accumulating near the boat and rider.

Consult your boat Owners Manual, or the United States Coast Guard’s website: www.uscgboating.org for more information on how to help protect others and yourself from the dangers of CO poisoning Use caution and common sense.

Do not exceed the weight guidelines of your boat.
Only use water ballast and people for additional weight.
Do not allow passengers to hang outside the boat or sit on the gunwales outside the normal seating area of the boat.
Uneven weight distribution or additional weight may affect the handling of the boat.
Never allow water to overflow the gunwales of your boat.

THE WARNINGS AND PRACTICES SET FORTH ABOVE IN THE WATERSPORTS SAFETY CODE REPRESENT SOME COMMON RISKS ENCOUNTERED BY USERS.
THE CODE DOES NOT PURPORT TO COVER ALL INSTANCES OF RISK OR DANGER. PLEASE USE COMMON SENSE AND GOOD JUDGMENT.…

&lt;h3&gt;&lt;font color=&quot;#0000FF&quot;&gt;What Is Propeller Pitch?&lt;/h3&gt;

What Is Propeller Pitch?

Propeller pitch is the theoretical forward movement of a propeller for one revolution, assuming that there is no prop slip.

For example, a 21 pitch propeller will theoretically move 21 inches for every revolution.
Propeller slip occurs with every propeller, but the amount of slip varies depending on propeller design
More aggressively and efficiently designed propellers will slip less.

When selecting a propeller pitch for your boat, it is important that the propeller runs at the upper end of your engines wide-open-throttle RPM range.
If you want your RPM's to increase, go down in pitch.
To decrease RPM's, go up in pitch.
As a general guide, for every 2" of pitch, RPM's will change approximately 400 RPM's.

For water sports or extra people on board, you should generally drop 2" of pitch to help compensate for the added weight and drag on your boat. It makes a noticeable difference in your boat's hole shot, fuel efficiency, RPM's, and overall performance. You should ALWAYS carry a spare propeller on board, and if you're into water sports or occasionally load the boat with extra people, a spare prop with a lesser pitch is a good idea. When thinking a propeller pitch, compare it to a gear on car - lower gear, higher RPM's.

The same pitch from different manufacturers will run slightly different RPM's due to a difference in blade design.
Speed differences among the same pitch from various manufacturers will vary even more.

For example a 17 pitch from one brand could run up to 7 mph faster than a 17 pitch from another brand.

Pitch is the 2nd two digits that are listed in a propeller item description (14-1/4 x 19), 19 is the pitch, 14-1/4 is the diameter).…
