07/13/2015 ToW - If your boat & motor are older than 2012 you may want to consider upgrading your fuel lines the next time you change your filters. Many of the hoses manufactured prior to 2012 are not able to withstand the corrosive effects of ethanol and will slowly erode from the inside, potentially resulting in clogged filters, jets or injectors.
When you’ve been in the fishing business as long as I have, you tend to reflect on the “good days” and “special catches,” and not as much about opportunities for others to have those memorable days on the water.
May is the top tarpon month in the Florida Keys, which means I’m on the water just about every day. I leave home in the dark and it’s usually dark when I get back home, so by this time of the month I’m running on autopilot.
