  1. 24v trolling motor wiring.

    Sorry if I'm high jacking your thread, but I bought a new for me boat with an older 42lb minnkota. The boat has a black,a red and an Orange wire back by the battery area. The boat has a trolling motor plug in the front as well as the back of the boat. I don't use a transom trolling motor,so I just put the Orange and red on the positive terminal,and works fine. Is it possible to have a 24volt system on such a small trolling motor? Should I hook the red to one battery,and the Orange to another,and ground to one battery? Sorry again if I'm high jacking,but thought the admin might bump my question over here anyway
  2. Yeah,I brought it to cabelas and they said it was updated as far as it could ever be. Maybe time for a new unit.
  3. I have an older lcx15. It could be that its just an older unit,but I was on tonka the other day. Which is unfamiliar waters for me. The map was so detailed that it was slow to load. So slow that it couldn't keep up at speed. Not exactly the best thing for new water. I realize the unit is old,but it works great for me. wondering if there is a way to turn down the detail so it could keep up......thanks
  4. I have a 1990 40 HP evinrude. It was slowly bleeding down,and under load it completely just goes right down even if you have it tilted. The manual said low fluid level could be the problem. I filled the fluid and went up and down 5 times like the manual said. Well the motor got stuck down,and the manual release wouldn't even free it. I even took it all the way out and no fluid came out of it. The only way I could free it was to take the plug out of the bottom. I consider myself fairly mechanical,how hard is it to do a rebuild kit? Any ideas and help is appreciated.
  5. help me catch a carp

    So should the corn be sitting on the bottom or should I float it up a bit. I was using a bobber 6in down.
  6. I have a lake near my house that is absolutely filled with carp. They are in the cattails on the north end rolling around and jumping all over. I have tried worms and corn with no success. The water is really stirred up with basically zero visibility. Is there some kind of stink bait that I could use or something? There OS no current in the lake,they are just stacked up in the mud on the north end..... Thanks.
  7. Opener Moved Up

    I think all seasons, fishing or hunting should be dictated by the environment, or different seasonal patterns for the current season at hand. Why have a date set in stone for a opener, when weather patterns can vary so much from year to year. If it is your intent to protect a vulnerable species at at a specific given time. There is no way that the same day of every year is going to protect them every single year.
  8. Pizza Dough

    This is my favorite. It's a neopolitan style crust which is thin,crisp,and chewy all at the same time. I cheated once and didn't stretch the dough by hand,and it didn't turn out as well. I just kept it in the kitchenaid,not a good idea.
  9. Lowarnce H20 vs Navionics App for Iphone

    The phone will get the job done, but I prefer the h20. Mainly for its durability. I don't trust having my phone out while drilling holes,or out in the rain. its kind of like having a phone with a camera. Yes I can take a picture with my phone,but if I want a really good picture I'm going to use a camera. I think you need service in order for the phone app to work,so depending on where you fish,could be an issue.
  10. Just looking for some reviews and input on these to shelters. They are about the same price and im looking to buy one soon. I have only seen the clam in person, and looked like it was pretty well built.
  11. Trying to put a trip together this fall. Looking for lakes, and fall techniques......thanks
  12. Navionics App for Android

    It looks like you can see other peoples spots that they have marked. Is there a setting or something so the whole world can't see my marked spots?
  13. Yeah,I bought a used boat with the lcx-15 I like the unit, just have to find the chip for it. Oh,and I'm really not that mad about it. I don't know how I put the little red devil face next to my post. Lol
  14. 2006 should work. The cabelas guy said 2007 or older. I would hate to go through with a sale, and get the wrong one
  15. I do have a 2009 I believe, but I use it in my hand held h20. Would you be interested in selling your older chip?
