  1. lost ice auger

    I found an auger laying out on the ice a week ago. I left it at the boat landing. It had fallen off someone's sled.

    I have my FL-18 hooked up to my Minnkota bow mount with universal transducer. It is like ice fishing when you are sitting still.
  3. Universal sonar connection

    What Kato said is true. It is a shielded connection on the V2, and the old PD was not. That is why you need a new adapter cable. Make sure it says V2 on the package.
  4. The stock prop only has a thrust washer. The Hustler must be installed with the proper hub kit for your motor. Most props do not use a hub kit.
  5. Try Valv at He is down by Lonsdale.
  6. Lake of the Woods in October

    Heavy jigs and shiners for the river. I may go up myself around that time. It is a great time of the year for big fish.
  7. Small rechargeable 12v batteries

    we just received a bunch at the Lakeville Gander. We sell a lot of them for poratble depth finders during the summer. We had sold four cases of them already this summer.
  8. Anchors keep slipping

    I would let out at least three times the depth to hold. You can use a second anchor if you want to stay still.
  9. I would have to agree with PerchJerker. Everyone has different tastes and needs. I never could see why someone needed a large, fully rigged boat until I fished out of one. All I can say is it is incredible. I could never fault anyone for having a rig like that. I would if I could.
  10. Troll Master

    My buddy has one on his 8hp Yamaha kicker. We used it extensively in Canada last week. I was very impressed with the range of control. I worked perfectly.
  11. F150 Motor size

    I just got back from a Canada trip. We pulled a 20' Skeeter walleye boat with a 225 four stoke. THe 5.4 did a great job. My buddy said he had a 4.6 in his previous truck and was very happy he upgraded to the 5.4 on this rig.
  12. Minn-Kota Edge Trolling motor ?

    That is the deal with a cable steering bow mount trolling motor. You have to steer it all the time.
  13. I-Finder

    A Lowrance card reader and a chip. Go to Lowrance HSOforum, download the update to chip and put the chip in your unit.
  14. Fourstroke ?

    I made the switch from 2 to 4 stoke on my 96 boat a few years ago. Best thing I ever did. I absolutely love the 4 stroke. I have an injected 40 Merc, which has been perfect for four years. Make sure you properly break it in if you are buying new.
  15. gps question

    You can do anything with a H2O. The Hunt offers some additional features and more hunting type icons. It will allow you to set boundarys on property too.
