Third cast of the day I caught a 7 lbs 1 oz, next cast was 2 lbs 14 oz, figured I might have blew my wad for the day. Then nothing but a bunch of magnum white bass until the last hour of the day when I ran into a school of very pissed off 3 to 5 pounders smile

Thankfully they happen quite frequently at Falcon because something has to balance this kind of thing out - today is the 3rd time prop shaft / prop breakage issues in 18 months cry

Wow...are you hitting big stumps or rocks on the dam to cause that much damage? That's crazy! Have you seen the "rumor" of the two guys getting robbed in Salanius? True or not true?

This time there was no underwater impact at all, no previous prop damage or thrust washer issues. It just sheared right off at WOT with no warning. I have been very careful to inspect and maintain my prop, collar spacing, thrust washer and torque setting since the previous two incidents, so I am going to press Yamaha on this if they deny the claim and ask them to provide metallurgical analysis because it seems to be a failed prop shaft. I do feel lucky that it just sheared off and did not impact the lower unit case, hopefully there is no internal damage.

As far as the "rumor" goes I don't know that any one mentioned a robbery, just a boarding, search and run off. I posted a recap of my experiences and observations from the Salinias here: https://texasfishingforum.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/13770599/re-falcon-alert#Post13770599
