Re: Using two split rings to attach the rear hook on a crankbait

Works like a champ! I’ve been doing it that way for years. It’s not perfect as I still loose a few but it’s better than before.

Re: My new LED bow lights

Lol! You don’t live in Virginia . Game wardens which is who patrols around here gave me a ticket last year for the registration letter and numbers which I might add were put on by dealer were to close to each other. Who wants a good day spoiled by something so trivial? It just gives them ammunition ...

Re: My new LED bow lights

I do believe the strip leds are not coast guard approved. Unless they say it on them. I would be real careful with those. You could use the removable ones that sit up higher when you plug them in

Re: Rubber isolators for

I used the provided washers that came with the motor. I tried without before . Never again.

Re: What Transducer for Side Scan on my Jon Boat?

Humminbird and Lowrance ducers are not interchangeable. With that said what I did so I didn’t have to worry about motor position was to put two side imaging ducers on the back. One on each side. I have helix mega si . I would assume Lowrance has a splitter cable for side imaging as well .

Re: A humid night....and a few bass

Deep woods off and an 18 volt Milwaukee cordless fan are the best I have found . :)

Re: Bow Mounted Trolling Foot Controlled from Stern

Nice boat. I too have been doing it this way for decades since the original powerxrive came out . Only time I stand on the bow is bed fishing. I have never liked being tied to a tm. Man have they changed over the years and gone up in price! Think I paid 450 for my 1st one new .People use to laugh at...

Building Electric boat G3 1652 hull

I run electric lakes only with a 2019 tracker grizzly 1648 MVX . Bow mount is a Bluetooth terrova with I-pilot 80 lb thrust and an 80 lb thrust on the transom . No speed demon but it will take me anywhere on the lake on a long day and still have enough to get back to the dock.

bow trailer steps

Yes it has two u bolts that go around the stand. I run a bt terrova . The electric steer motors stick out more than the old school tm and no it does not get in the way when it’s mounted.
