WELCOME MARY BETH,
I love fishing also. Well in the warmer weather that is. Do you ice fish? Thats one thing I haven't done yet. I like to catch all kinds of fish, but I'd have to say my favorites are Crappie and Bluegill. What are yours? Come back often the more the merrier.

Welcome aboard Mary Beth. I believe we chatted a bit last night in the chat room. You'll love the information you get from this site. Good luck and have fun.

Hey MaryBeth - Welcome! I am like Mary, I want to fish in the sun in the summer. So right now I am just waiting for summer to get here. Hope you enjoy our site, we are always glad to see new faces. We just can't keep talking to the same people all the time - especially in the winter when we don't fish! grin.gif

Welcome Char, Wow Char you like the big ones. What is the biggest you have caught so far? A couple of years ago I caught a big Northren on an ulta light pole when I was fishing for Crappie that was a lot of fun. Another time I had one right up to the boat and hubby was going to net it but it bit my line off before he got it, but we got to see it first. The funny part is on my next cast out I thought I had another bite and was fighting that fish with all my heart. I'd pull it up a little bit and it would go right back down to the bottom, Finally my pole broke right in half and the line broke. When we went to leave my hubby was pulling up the anchor and sure enough there was my line and jig stuck in the anchor rope. LOL Oh well I gave that anchor a good fight.

    • Some radio's can be really power hungry. I'd just use a simple bluetooth speaker or some sort of standalone boom box of sorts (for example my makita radio can run for around 50 hours on a single battery). If your lights are not already switch them over to LED. Both of these are easily done to reduce current draw. If you search amazon you can also buy and install PWM led dimmers on all your lights, only turn them up as bright as needed. The great thing about PWM is it reduces your current draw unlike resistor based dimmers of past. Lastly I would take an actual reading at the battery and right where its wired (your results should be very close) when your alarm goes off. You may have a bad Co/lp alarm or the following issues that increase resistance to your alarm in turn dropping the voltage it sees: poor connections, too small of gauge wiring, excessive wire length.
    • There's nothing amusing, or even confusing as to why it happens.  It would be more confusing if outdoorsmen didn't overharvest.  Look no further than Harden's Tragedy of the Commons.       There's a near perfect correlation with the amount of free public resources and the inferior quality of those resources.  This is why reservations are largely wilderness ghettos.  It's why Red Lake collapsed.  The student loan bubble.  This is also why urban ghettos are looted every time there is a riot.  Subsidized housing, drinking water, livestock farming etc.     When people aren't responsible for the effects their actions have on the system they're impacting, those systems will fail.  But hey, keep helping the state buy up all the land and monopolize the lakes.  Maybe someday enough of that insanity will yield a different result.  
    • First off, you need to figure out you amp loading.... how many amps does your furnace take, lights, radio etc. and how long do they run. That should give you your amp hr rating. Then match your battery requirement up with the right amount of amp hours.  Not all batteries are created equal based on size. For example, a group 27 can range from 60-100 amp hrs.    Here is a good site for calculating battery requirements https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/calculator-sizing-a-battery-to-a-load.html  
    • Hey it's my Anniversary old man!   2001 I may not have even been Internet born then? 😄
    • I think Priefer has dirt on the wilfs. That guy should have been fired years ago
    • Gave the Lakemaster chip to my son, he has the E-trex 30x using it in the BWCA as it runs on AA batteries. Uses BaseCamp to create BWCA routes.
    • I learned how to encrypt all digital media near my fishin’ holes.  Hopefully that explains it. 😁
    • I had some other pictures of Laker fishing that for some reason just wouldn't post. You can see one right at the bottom of the last picture?  J's fish.bmp.
    • I can only say I think you are a pretty straight up guy and it wasn't your post that I was talking about at all. I was just commenting on the way these discussions generally go and if I would have made the second paragraph in a new post the forum would have merged them automatically anyway so I just used this approach.
