  1. Me process has always been to take the boat out and use the batteries. Trickle charge them overnight when I get home for next use and repeat. I believe I have been "taking care" of them. I do notice that one is always significantly lower than the other when I return from fishing. I'm thinking maybe I have had a bad battery in series and that's why I've had issues. I think I am just going to replace both with the cheap walmart everstarts this spring and see where I'm at. Everyone that I talk to has had luck with them. Thanks for all the advise guys!
  2. I currently have a MinnKota Terrova 80lb with iPilot trolling motor. It is 24v and I use two Interstate marine batteries. I use it a lot for vertical jigging and I only get around 6hrs of fishing on a set of batteries before they no longer can keep me in place. Basically they don't have enough juice to keep me in one spot. They will still move me around a bit if I have the motor running full bore but only probably 40% power. I have buddies that will use batteries for 3 days and never drain them. When I get home and put them on the charger they say they have between 65-75% charge left but they barely work. Is this normal? I am thinking about upgrading batteries this year in hopes to get more battery life. What are your thoughts\recommendations? Sorry i will post the model battery I have later I don't have it available now.
  3. I'm looking to put in a 2nd fish finder that is attached to my MinnKota Terrova US2\iPilot trolling motor. Any recommendations? I don't want to have to run another transducer and just use the trolling motor instead.

  9. So I caught my biggest steelhead to date in the river last weekend, the fish was 33" 13.2lbs. I decided to mount this fish because it is my biggest to date and I considered it a trophy IMO. Just wondering what everyone considers a trophy as far a minimum requirements before you would mount a fish?
  10. I jig lakers A LOT during the winter. I use electronics but since you don't have a flasher here is what you do. This may seem a little crazy but it works! Drill two holes 15ft from each other, run one rod in right hand and one in the left. Put white tube jigs on each of the rods with 1/2 jig heads. Drop 1st rod all the way to the bottom and then walk to other hole and drop that rod all the way to the bottom. Walk back and forth from hole to hole until one BITES! A lot of times they will hit it on the fall. I used to use this technique all the time before I started fishing with flashers.

  13. So I have two bunks on my trailer and they are both completely shot and need to be replaced. I measured them and they measure 3"x6"x10ft long. I have never had to repair the bunks before so I was looking for some advise. Can I just use pressure treated? Does it need to be sealed? Do they actually sell a 3x6 or do I need to make one by screwing two 2x6 together. The boars are just lag bolted to trailer currently and sit vertically. Any advise is appreciated! Thanks!
  14. Anyone run a camera on there riggers in LG? It is so clear I would love to see how many lakers are down there that just aren't hitting.
  15. Ha! It actually is now! I had it down when I first put it on the wall
  16. 14LB Brown Mount My buddy got into fish Taxidermy this year and has done a couple fish for me. His work is better than a lot of guys that have been doing it for 30yrs. I am really happy with the mounts! Here are some pics of mounts he did for me this year. Ice fishing Pike, Spring Brown and Spawning river salmon.
  17. All I know is I would rather fall off the side of the boat than drink one of those Bud Lights! Keep the fish with the beer and waters? Ha! WTF
  18. Yes they are much better than the last ones. Getting power from the down rigger to the plug isn't the issue. My complaint is the 2ft cable to get from the battery to the plug.... most boats don't have the plug that close to the battery compartment. I Gorilla glued it this morning....we will see what happens!
  19. It amazes me the money that they charge you for this crap. 2ft cable from the battery....like that will ever reach where it needs to. Plastic collar that isn't a circle like the hole they tell you to drill. Then they call for a 30amp breaker and 10gauge wire on the rigger but correct me if I'm wrong that kit is 12 gauge. What a joke for $55. Thanks for the advise guys.
  20. So I replaced the power cables on my Mag 10's wiith the new Cannon power cables. As most of you with Cannons prolly know you have to drill the hole out to 3/4 of an inch on the housing. Well one of the riggers went perfectly but for some reason the hole on the other is just a little too big. The collar provided doesn't lock tightly in the hole so it eventually works its way out over time. I have heard alot of things about using silicone based sealer caused some kind of chemical reaction and fried the boards on them. I wanted to use some gorilla glue on the collar to hold it in place so it doesn't move in that 3/4" hole. What are your thoughts? I need to do something to prevent it from moving.....
