I would suggest the wave wackers brand. They are the best I have had and I have used or looked at all of them. You can do a google search of wave wackers and get the information you need to contact them.

You might do a search for White caps as I put a set on from them and they fit very nice.

Both great products...I prefer Whitecap splash guards myself great service and good people to deal with.

I'm a backtrolling maniac and have Whitecaps on my Lund Pro Angler which have served me very, very well. They make it easy to figure out which ones you need and are very easy to install yourself in an hour or two. I'm sure the Wave whackers are good products also but I have no reason to change.

Not to go too far off of the subject, but do the Whitecaps or Wave Wackers interfere with putting on the boats storage or travel cover? I have an 1850 FishHawk, and would like to put them on also.

Thanks

I have a LUND Classic 1660 and all I did was to move the back two snaps on the back of the boat an inch or so and it works fine. This is with the White Caps brand.

My cover does not fit with the White Caps on, but it only takes a minute at most to unscrew four wingnuts and take off the splash guards.

I have Wave Wackers and also have to take them off. A little inconvenient, but better that buying a custom cover. It only takes 2-3 minutes.

Wave Wackers on my boat but never had the White Caps so I can't give you an opinion one way or another, but I have no complaints about the WW's. Seem to be built pretty well.

I have Wave Wackers on my boat. I got them with the boat when I bought it. The dealer told me that they go on better than anyother brand so that is all they use. I personally think they just use WW's so they can charge through the nose.

Even with that being said I really like my WW's. They have an extremely nice mounting system. They come off with a couple of thumb screws.

My SWAG (Scientific Wild *** Guess) is that either brand is probably a good choice. Six one way, half a dozen the other.

White caps are very easy to install as long as you have a little know how and a tape measure grin.gif. I don't have any on my boat right know but I have had white caps in the past.

      if this is the lake I,m thinking about isn't the only access thru a farmers yard that owns a little meat processing plant??????

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
