    Default trolling with opti max 200 sport jet

    Hello, I know im new here and havnt earned anyones respect yet, still would like a answer to my question. I have a 18' river boat that i sometimes like to fish out of the rivers and in the chuck, do i need a kicker or?
    Just wondering if anyone uses there two stroke 200 opti max sportjet for trolling, is it ok to run at low rpms for long periods? does the engine get enough oil at a idle from the oil injector or should i add extra oil directly into the fuel tanks? thanks in advance.

    I've been doing it with mine for several years now (dipping on the Kenai) without any issues.

    I don't have any problem doing it with mine... Other than I cant drive in straight line...
    Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..
