Motor Guide Bowmount Problem?????

4 posts in this topic

I have a Motorguide Bowmount issue. The propeller will not spin. At first I thought it was a power problem, but it steers fine with the pedal, so I know it is getting power the propeller just wont go. Has anyone had this problem? Can it be fixed? How? Thanks for the help!! If I can't fix it I might just have to get a brand new one with all the bells and whistles.... grin.gif

Make sure you don't have weeds or line wrapped up underneath. Other than that, some wiring issues.

What kind of motorguide is it. Most of the older ones are cable drivin on the turning of the unit. I had that problem once all it was was dirty contacts underneath the foot pedal. Turn the motor all the way one way and it will open up enough to work on it.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
