  1. Thanks that's very generous of you! I would be happy to pay for the shipping, I will PM you my address, just let me know how much for the shipping.
  2. Thanks! That is exactly what the bottom of the switch looks like! I just didn't know what it was called...Much appreciated!
  3. This is whats left when you hit the switch with the outboard kicker recoil handle...
  4. Thanks for the feedback, I wasn't sure where to look because the ones I looked up on Amazon, EBay, etc looked different than the one that was in the Walker..The one on the DR has some strange type of double crossover copper pieces on the bottom of the switch, and it's a 4 wire switch...I will check at AutoZone and Advance tonight.
  5. I recently dropped something on one of my Walkers while fishing and smashed the switch so it wont work any more. The pic below is an example of what mine look like. Does anyone know where I can get a suitable replacement switch for the downrigger? Love these, not ready to upgrade yet... Thanks!
  6. 8 lb coated pancake weight- $15 10lb coated Tru Trac pancake- $20 (says 9 on it but it is supposed to be a 10...) $30 for both. Pickup in Webster NY only, no shipping Got my new weights from Bikini Bottom (which are awesome, i highly recommend his stuff!) so clearing out the old...
  7. I started the same way several years ago on my small (17') boat. I had an older Humminbird FF with an inaccurate paddle wheel. I took my older Garmin car GPS that mounted to the windshield of my boat, and it had an internal battery that lasted about 6 hrs. Got me pretty close, enough to catch fish.
  8. Upgraded from a 12' to a 14' aluminum boat, need a bigger motor for the 14'. Doesn't need to be electric start or have alternator, but if it does that's just a plus... See pics, I have a very nice 1984 Johnson 8HP short shaft I am willing to trade as part of the deal, if someone is looking for a small outboard.
  9. Glad you got it fixed. I just got done fooling around with my Mercruiser trim system, found a loose wire from the fuse to the trim motor...All working ok now. But they can be a pain in the butt...
  10. I bought a 12" piece of track, cut it in half and drilled some beveled/chamfered holes in it so i could use both pieces with 4 screws...I got the beveled bit set at Harbor Freight for $10, less than the cost of an extra piece of track. Worked great!
  11. I love those hook jaws...I think it's the German variant of the brown trout but I am not sure...They always look surprised!
  12. I was looking at my slip at Mayers in I Bay today, I could stand in the water and I bet it wouldnt reach my knees...
  13. Beautiful morning on the water, launched at Mayer's and snuck under the swing bridge...Went 10 for 13 on browns, chartreuse and white bay rats/rapalas on long lines were the best producers. We found that 36 degree water just inside the mud line and followed it east and west, hooking up in both directions. Anywhere from 11 to 20 FOW they were active.
  14. Ended up with this butterfly plate, after re-purposing the rod holders from it for a different project. Only have the one, so if you can use it PM me for a front porch pickup. I live in Webster NY. Mike
  15. My son and I do an annual ice fishing trip to the Adirondacks, usually fishing smaller ponds and lakes. This year we learned how to catch lakers through the ice on Champlain, it was a lot of fun! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iz2lDZBB8Iw
  16. Is the screen wavy when powered up? How many hours has it been used? I have heard this happens to these with age...Thanks,
  17. Thanks...On the positive side that gives me a whole year to save up more $$$$!!!
  18. I am assuming yes, because its usually the 2nd Saturday in March... Anyone doing anything on line?
  19. Looking for a used TrollMaster or ControllKing for my 2012 Tohatsu 6hp kicker. If you have upgraded and have an older model I am interested. Thansk!
