  1. Would you sell just 1? also can you ship?
  2. I have a nearly brand new (20 hours) Lowrance Hook 7 that is intermittently losing bottom - no depth reading. The first couple of times this happened, I was able to get the unit functioning by shutting it down and restarting it. Sometimes several shutdown/restart sequences have been required. It has usually worked correctly after the restart for the rest of the day's fishing (2-3 hours), but last weekend the unit would not work even after multiple shutdowns and restarts. I am wondering what to do. I have not yet tried a reset, something I read about after a Google search. This is aggravating in itself, but on top of this is the fact that I never had any problems with Hummingbird units. I do not have access to another Lowrance unit to try and isolate the problem to the transducer. Tia for any help. Tom
  3. Still have unit.Call 315 466 9197I can answer any ?

  4. Stll available? Does it have Navionics or other card? (Probably not at the price offered, I realize.)
  5. Thanks, drynet. What about riggers? Do you have them and are they mounted on the Lund Sport Track (sp?) system?
  6. I may buy a late model Lund with the Lund Sport Track system. I'm wondering about whether there is a mount for this track system that can handle a downrigger dropped to 70'. I want to fish two downriggers, one on each gunwale. I'd also like to add a rod holder on each gunwale for a dipsey and/or a planer board. Is the Lund Track system strong enough to structurally support a downrigger with a certain weight ball? With these additional components? Or do I need to add a track to each gunwhale? Thanks for your help. Tom
  7. @ Dick Tees Thanks. Seller did not respond to several pms.
  8. Will you sell them individually? If so how much? Also where are you located?
  9. Go to the Lake Champlain United Forum. It's a separate fishing forum dedicated to fishing on Lake Champlain. Join and send a private message to the owner.

  11. That's the same model as the one I bought two fishing seasons ago. Quiet, sips fuel, and very precise throttle control. Mine is on my son's 19 1/2 ft. Lund. At full throttle in calm water it will push the Lund around 5 mph. The output of the charging system, which requires adding the Yamaha rectifier assembly kit, varies on how much throttle you are using. I had previously used a Honda 7 1/2 hp to troll on my 20 ft. fiberglass rig, but my son's Lund is about 19 years old and we chose the Yamaha because it is lighter than the Honda 9.9. We wanted to keep the weight down on the transom which already supported a 150 hp outboard. Price seems very fair to me.
  12. Interesting thread. I am from Chicago but left there before the stocking success in the Great Lakes. (Near my childhood home the best my brothers and I could do was fish for bullheads in the Des Plaines River.) I moved to Vermont in 1970 and shortly thereafter started stream/river fishing for trout there. Every once in a while someone would catch a 10lb+ brown from one of the the rivers, but any catch over 17" was a trophy to me. I fished and fished and, after learning about trout habitat and how to read the water, started to consistently catch small browns and rainbows. Finally one day I caught a brown a little over 17". I immediately showed the fish to a fisherman who had mentored me and he said to get that fish mounted which I did. I can't remember how many days after I took my "trophy" to the taxidermist, but it wasn't very many, when I caught a 17" rainbow. Again my friend advised me to get that one mounted and I did. I picked up the two mounted fish, took them to the apartment where I lived, and had the following thought: What do I need these two mounts for? The brown was special - it was my first big trout. But the rainbow? And I didn't have lots of wall space... I went back to my mentor and shared my thoughts. No problem, he said. I know a restaurant owner who will buy that rainbow. And that's what happened to mount #2. 45 years later the brown sits on the wall in my office where I am typing this. There's something about the first, the first love, the first child, etc. Tight lines and trophies to all in 2019.
  13. I bought the same motor last year. You’ll need what I think is called a rectifier assembly. I think it cost me about $80. It works well. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
