    Sandy Creek Launch
  1. Since Moor stopped making the Subtroll this is the company that is now selling all Moor parts: http://www.esgdirect.com/trolling.html
  2. Check the RCA connector between the antenna and the cable that goes to the display. The RCA connectors that come with the unit tend to rust pretty easy and you will loose a lot of your signal with rusty connections. I replaced the cable on mine with one that has nice gold plated connectors and I also cut off and replaced the one on the antenna side as well.
  3. How do you burp the fish? Do you mean use a needle to bleed the air out of its swim bladder, or can you just force the air out somehow?
  4. Henchens Marina in Henderson Harbor has a lot of Hammerheads, dont think they have any Gambler rigs though. They do sell some individual spin-n-glo's though.
  5. I fished Sandy from 9:00 till 1:00 today and the best fishing was in about 140' of water. We marked some fish all the way out to 250' but all our bites were at 140. Best rig was a FLT pro-troll flasher with a green fly. Flasher was a white blade with some UV tape on one side and some green and black painted on the other. 2-kings, 2-steelies, one laker, two dropped fish.
  6. You said its powered up so I assume the display is showing the decimal point in the temperature display? Try pulling apart the RCA connector from the antenna to the cable that connects to the head end. Make sure the connection is good. I don't know how much other trouble shooting you can really do while on the water.
  7. I had one doing the same thing last year and I wound up having to replace the drive gear as well. It was not hard to take it apart to inspect the gear. I got a replacement from fish307 as well.
  8. Try Minion from this site, he had some great looking teaser rigs for sale in the classifieds.
  9. another option to get to NOAA charts http://www.charts.noaa.gov/InteractiveCatalog/nrnc.shtml
  10. I dont think it is any time too soon. I dont believe they have broken ground on anything in that development yet. Bass Pro website does not even mention a date yet.
  11. Power Pro Super 8 Slick or Berkeley Nanofil are both great for casting,
  12. I have had to splice in a new 9v battery clip in my probe a couple years ago. The wires on the old one had corroded and were not connected to the battery clip any more. Did you try spinning the wheel to wake the unit up or to see if that made the needle move? I don't know for sure if you have to use a only one of the connection points on the probe and not the other, try connecting your rigger cable to the other side of the probe. I dont have any sort of ground wire to water... just the +/- from the battery and mine works. Do you know anyone else who has a unit that you can borrow their probe or head unit?
  13. I bought the Amish Outfitter fly storage box this year and it has worked out great. I thread the fly bodies though a short piece or straw to keep them neat and organized https://amishoutfitters.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=19&products_id=100&zenid=66cec17c3f2dd85fe95434dd61142a4b
  14. wrap a wet rag around the antenna and it helps a little bit when the signal starts cutting out. I would use the washdown hose to keep it wetted down every once in a while.
  15. If you use coated cable I would start by checking for any missing coating. If you have bare wire exposed in the water you will loose signal through that. Also check your RCA cable connections and make sure they are not rusty, that will also cause a loss of signal. I was having issues with mine starting a couple of years ago. I did the whole wet rag trick for a while, then swapped out the cable and the antenna to the new Torpedo brand. I was still loosing signal even after all that. This spring I installed a new RCA cable from the antenna to the head unit and that did the trick. Have not lost the signal once since I replaced the cable. This is what I used: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003FVYXY0?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00
