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.

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
