New Member! :)

Welcome, Glad to see a west coaster here. I have recently graduated from my kayak to a 1436 Tracker Jon Boat. I still pretty much stick to the Bay but Im having a blast for sure. Have you been out lately? I hit San Diego Bay Saturday and pulled on some shour Halibuts, Sand Bass and Spotties. Maybe I...

Junction Block Good or Bad idea?

Thanks for the idea. That might just work out perfectly. SInce I remove the trolling motor after every trip this box idea would be sweet.

Junction Block Good or Bad idea?

I want my two batteries in the front of my 14ft Jon to balance weight. I sit in the back and have a transom trolling motor. I saw a member post a pic of his Jon. He had mounted a positive and negative post to a cutting board on the back bench, where I assumed he would attach his T.M. The posts were ...

Tracker Topper 1436 mod

Roasty Great Job there. I have the same boat with trolling motor on transom and 2 batteries. What kind of wire and connections did you use to lengthen the battery cable? I want my batteries up in the bow if possible. Any tips?

Anyone Build Your Own Trailer?

I have a Tracker Topper 1436 and I want to build my own trailer from scratch. It must be Galvinized. Thats about my only requirement. Im checking with local California DMV for how to register a home made "Utility" Trailer. Anyone got any tips on the construction or or registration process. Thanks

Removable Transducer

Yeah, I may start bringing by Kayak Dolly to help me get the boat up the ramp to flat ground for an easier load in. It is rated for 300 pounds. Thanks

Removable Transducer

Hey there Drum, That sounds like it will work just fine. The things we have to do huh... Do you have any plans to get a trailer? That would solve so many of my problems. I can't add anymore weight to the boat as I have to lift it in and out of my truck. So I spend a lot of time at the launch ramp pu...

Removable Transducer

Awesome Website guys! Keep it up. I racked my brain trying to come up with an idea to mount my transducer. Its on a Topper 1436 that I usually toss in my truck, and drag around at launch ramps. So I knew I couldnt simply mount the transducer to the transom. It had to be removable for transport. Here...
