  1. I have the newest Lake of the Woods V3/V4 microSd card and am looking to possibly trade for the older 2009 card. Any interest out there? I have the H2o and the new microSd will not work in it, but the 2009 will. Please let me know. robert dot nathe at target dot com thanks
  2. Soft Hands. Since I work on a computer 5 days a week and live in the city, all the guys from up north would call me Soft Hands. So, once I finally got a boat, the boat now has the name.
  3. Northlander, I run a standard 8 pound ball with it. I have heard from others that the clutch might just be slipping and there is a screw inside that may have popped out. I have also heard the breaks might be a little greasy or something like that. I think I will bring it to Streiff's and see what they say.
  4. I have a Canno uni-troll 6 downrigger that is not working for me. I was wondering if anybody knows how to fix the issue. I can unwind and the wire will come out no problem. Then, when I have the ball at my desired depth, it will not tighten up. I think somebody using it may have unwound it a few too many times but not sure if that would cause an issue or not. Can anybody help? Or tell me who can service this for a fair price?
  5. Thanks for the input guys. I appreciate it. Looks like I need to go shop at FF or Wally to see what they have. Any other opinions?
  6. I just bought a new 36V MinnKota trolling motor and am looking for opinions on what type of batteries to buy. Has anybody had better luck with certain brands/types compared to others? Or should a guy just go to their favorite mass sports retailer and pick one up?

  8. Marine Man, good point. I will have to weigh my options as far as timing goes and devise a plan. It would be a crime to be without my boat in the spring!
  9. Dink, I will try it in October when I am at LOW for the fall fishing. I can't wait.
  10. I am pumping the bulb until hard before starting and it stays firm while being operated. It sounds like the carb needs to be re-built. Anybody know anybody trustworthy that can do this for me up in the Lake of the Woods area? Estimated cost? My boat is currently at Arnesen's. I am guessing I should wait until spring anyway though.
  11. Mine is also electric start. I guess I will need to have the carb rebuilt and see if that helps.
  12. It does indeed use the same tank and there is no T involved anywhere.
  13. Just bought a Warrior V193 with a 200hp merc plus a 9.9 4 stroke kicker. The 200 runs like a dream but the kicker doesn't run quite as well. First off, it takes like 2-3 minutes to warm up - even when its hot out. Then, when putting it into gear, it likes to die. I then have to get it warmed up again and try it again. It will die again. After several times doing this, it finally will keep running and stay in gear. Its like I have to crank the shaft as fast as possible when its in neutral until I get it to go into gear. Once I get it in gear, it will run all day as long as I keep it in gear, ie trolling plugs with my downriggers. But once I shut it down, move to next stop, I do this all over again. Any ideas what could be wrong or things I could try to make it better?
