    You have to setup with a fishing load.
    So with a fishing load you've got way too much prop. I'd be looking for a 21 tempest or yamaha M prop to put on it, that will dramatically improve your holeshot and get your rpms up to 5,600 where your motor really wants to live.

    100 lbs is 1-2 mph. You added the poles and then fill the livewells, fuel tank and a big guy partner is a really big difference, you need to make the adjustment, which is your prop.

    I have a budy with the same set up but has a four stroke and went to a bravo FS if you know some body that has a bravo 1 xs I would try a 22 or 23 pitch and raise the motor to 3 1/2 below pad Rothwell Marine has some good deals going and will let you swappitch if needed.

    my 13 z7 dc 150 pro xs prop to pad is best 2 1/2 -3 depending on chop an load. will pull the 24p but is much happier with the 23p when loaded up with gear and fullwells.
