  1. Cable vibration hum was always a pretty good indicator for us back in the day. That, and bubbles coming off what appears to be the top 12" of cable. FWIW my GPS speed is usually just under a full mph higher than my ball speed.
  2. Doubt it was a Sturgeon. I've done that twice and both times they were very lazy. Probably knowing they could do anything they want at any time. Probably a fouled King, but a Musky is a possibility or a big cat.
  3. Never had a problem with Walmart's Batteries. Made by Johnson Controls.
  4. The buyer will determine how much when he makes an offer. it's just up to you if you think it's reasonable.
  5. When you are getting to that size range 28' and above, the stability of a straight inboard and ease of maintenance wins out. I/O"s aren't even in the conversation.
  6. I bought my Total Boat Penetrating Epoxy on Amazon and just checked... available with delivery in 6 days.
  7. Not exactly what you are looking for....I mounted a piece of poly board with 4 screws sealed with 5200, and mounted my transrucers to that.
  8. If you go to two riggers next year, you will want both in the corners.
  9. I have the Millenium and for the price, they are hard to beat.
  10. Winds from the East,,Fishing is the least!
  11. Looking for the display monitor only. If anybody has one, shoot me a PM Thanks in advance!
  12. If you're running the FF on the TM battery, that could be your problem.
  13. Are you using the TM transducer, or the FF's?
  14. Thanks guys! I have used the round ones but they didn't seem too stable. I will check out the Trax's.
  15. Just curious what guys use for cradles, or if you even use cradles for the 16# torpedo weights?
  16. I run one piece 7's with regular rings and twillys, on the inside . NP's!
  17. The B117 on one and I would just do the GT30 on the other.
  18. Same situation for me while Island camping in the St. Lawrence. Tow Boat told me 3-4 hrs. I drifted to shore and tied up to a tree, next to a private launch. The owner allowed me the time to walk 3 mi to my truck and come back and use his launch. I did all this in under 3 hrs. Never renewed with TowBoat.
  19. Not sure what you mean by locations near Rochester. I think it gets you perks at West Marine but the Roch store is pretty useless IMO. Better off investing in a reliable kicker!
  20. Put it in a trash barrel and see if it's any different. When I use muffs, I wrap a bungee around it tight but it is still slow to stream.
  21. Frying the alternator for starters.
  22. You can switch the Perko from 1 to 2 or to both, while running without issue. The problem is if you accidently switch to off while doing so. That could be a real bad day!
  23. Distance apart might but up and down should not. Biggest issue would be if they are the same frequency or cone angle. My2cents
  24. Is the control wireless? I have heard the wireless Trollmaster's do the same thing. If it's not wireless, try isolating the wires from other electrical harnesses. Maybe run it through some flex conduit?
