“With every trip I collect new mementos, though few are collected in scrapbooks. And those who fish for bass across the land collect them too. They are the images from first light to last and from first fish to last. And we’d share them in a minute. Some recall particular triumphs often preserved in snapshots and clippings, while others we tend to hide, at least until the time we’re ready to laugh about them. Daybreaks, canebrakes, heartbreaks, muggy nights, and foggy mornings. A hundred things that worked, and a thousand things that should have. That’s bass fishing.”

-George KramerBass

Before you head out for bass fishing, make sure you don’t get stranded. Get the right 2-cycle oil for your outboard motor!

How long before your 55 gallon drum of oil goes bad?

I use Evinrude XD50 in my 200 hp Evinrude E-Tec engine and am thinking about buying a 55 gallon bulk oil drum. I can save about $10 a gallon compared to the counter price at the store, but I wonder how fast I must use it before it goods bad…or does it ever go bad?

My two fishing buddies and I are sharing the drum and should finish it off in about a year.

Does anybody know the answers? Thanks, Bill
