  1. Put two in my Lund Barron. Worth the investment for me when pounding through heavy chop.
  2. Interesting because I had two PMs offering to sell me Tekota 600 LC reels after I responded to a legitimate seller (Polesetter) last week. The two PMs were from Donald3 and Salliep. I noted that both were recently added to LOU and had no other posts I could see, so I assumed they were scammers and I ignored them. Sound like I made the right call.
  3. I always had to buy the whole side plate to fix missing lense. They are cheap, but seems to be on backorder at my normal source https://www.ereplacementparts.com/ Try http://tunasreeltroubles.com.
  4. Thanks Hank. You are the man! You are exactly correct. The other end of my cable is a molded Canon plug but didn’t occur to me it was a retrofit job. Thanks again!
  5. Anyone have an old style Canon downrigger power connector they would sell? I am looking for both the male and female connector. Pictures are of the male end only that goes to the rigger motor. Not worried about the cord, just need the connector. Thanks.
  6. Thanks for all the help guys. I had pins loose before but had put a small wire tie through the hole to keep it from moving. I’m not hard on my equipment so I’m just going to chalk it up to I got a bad unit. It happens in manufacturing. Sounds like lots of you have had no issues so I’m going to replace it with the same model and hope for the best.
  7. I have two Cannon dual axis rod holders on my boat and one had a catastrophic failure yesterday. The bottom pin that holds the pistol grip in place broke through the casting. I called Cannon and was told it is out of warranty and there are no replaceable parts. My second one shows bulging on the edge at the same spot and will surely fail at some point. I asked if they had redesigned this holder since I bought mine (2014) because there is very little material between the pin hole and the edge of the casting. They promissed to check and get back to me. Has anyone else had this issue with this holder? I love how they work but don't want to buy any more unless there is more material holding these pins in place. Maybe I just got a bad batch?
  8. Hank at L&M put a Garmin unit on my Baron and I am very happy with it. It controls both the Yamaha 250 main and the 9.9 kicker. Hank it the man to go to.
  9. I just installed a Fell Marine remote kill switch on my boat for this exact reason. https://www.fellmarine.com/ If you are trolling alone and go overboard the engine stops.
  10. Looks to me like the trailer was too short for the boat so the winch post was hitting real low on the keel. This allowed the boat to surf right over the winch post.
  11. Great turnout today at the ELOSTA tackle sale. The seminars put on by Brian Hammond, Dave Klock and Matt French were excellent. Thanks guys for sharing some your secrets. Much appreciated.
  12. I used wire ties instead of screws or bolts and it works great. Thought it was going to be a temporary set up at first but 4 years later have no reason to change it.
