Wave Wackers

I know this maybe a dumb question. But Do you need to take Wave Wackers off when trailering? crazy.gif

Hey RJ: There's no such thing as a dumb question. No you sure don't need to remove your wave wackers to trailer your boat. Most people just tuck their tarp in front of it and tighten it down as good as they can.

I'd usually take them off on very long hauls (4+ hours) thinking it'd get me better gas mileage, but most of the time I left them on.

I also leave them on unless its a long pull. Not that hard to take off, maybe I'm just lazy.

I've had wave wackers before and they don't even compare to the job that rain gutters do. Take some plastic rain gutters and mount them to the back of your boat upside down.

I would like to see rain gutters in action. I'm not so sure I would try to backtroll on lakes like Rainy or LOW in a 20 MPH wind with them.

I paid $275 for mine and orderd from the Wave Wacker website. Took me and the wife about 1 hour to install. Wackers or other wacker types work and keep you on the water is some pretty tough weather conditions.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
