Seems whenever I search for answers for something the answer was found on microskiff, so why not join? New to fishing the "big bend" area of Florida. Bought myself a little J14 skiff and now I need to put some time in to find some fish.

Yes- a Carolina Skiff J14 that I recently purchased used. The previous owner had some issues with the 25hp Etec. I replaced the lift pump and the VST and she runs like a champ. I think the fact that he was using regular gas, (with ethanol) contributed significantly to the pump failures.

Regular pump gas with ethanol has been the demise of many marine engines. Enjoy your skiff, they are tough little boats. I have a 16ft center console with forward and rear casting decks, 40hp Mariner.

Thanks eightwt, if your ever looking for a fishing partner-let me know. I retired a few years ago and moved up here for some piece and quiet, now I need to figure this whole big bend fishery!
