      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

00' blazer jimmy moonroof sunroof??

Question

Bassboy1645

While hysterical me was laughing at my buddies green face after a fart the moonroof sunroof he was openeing sounded like a snap or a crack and then jammed open. It goes forward to close for about an inch or so then hangs up. it goes back an inch or so and hangs up. or so it sems like its hanging up. in the interst of not spending money id leave it be except its extremely annoying goign down the highway even with the top sliding interior panel closed. A guy at the dealer( who I thought was being kind of a jerk) told me that theyd have to look at it and it would cost money and id have to make an appointment. He offered no thoughts or possible costs or scenarios for what might be the problem without lookign at it( hence the negitivty). Any ideas??

Get in touch with a body shop. We send all our sunroof work to a couple of shops near by.

Bassboy,

Sun roofs are a pain to work on. I would try to get closed and never use it again, if you do not want to spend any money.

The dealership/garage will most likely charge a check out fee because it takes time to tear into a sun roof and figure out what’s wrong. They figure, if you bail on repairs they need to recoup some money for the tech's lost time. Hence, no mechanic works for free, unless it is the in-laws vehicle! You also will have to make an appointment, because if garage or dealership has someone who can work on it, they are mostly booked up for the day, because of pre existing appointments for other customers. Some times they are just letting you know the facts and not being mean. Also a dealership or garage is not the Red Cross! When they give out free info, it goes against the grain of the workings of a shop (hence they are their to make money). IMO

I like to give out free info on FM, because I like to help my fellow FM'er. I help and give out more info than I ever would in dealership service isle. In the dealership, it will cost ya! Here I am a nice guy!

Sounds like track broke, because it moves a little bit!

It will not be cheap to fix! I would shoot out a price of around $300-$600. $1200 plus could not be out of the question!

Good luck!

Yep, pretty much what Airjer said. In our shop, if someone has a sunroof problem the guys all run like mad. Some sort of major dislike. But the thing is with sunroofs is the module or track mechanisim is very expensive. Not a lot of servicable parts. I checked the GM part and it's over a grand. Good luck!

Airjer and Dan,

You guys are correct! I have only worked at 2 dealerships that would work on them. It takes a guy with thin arms and small hands! grin.gif

Another option is to try Dealer Automotive Services in Hopkins. One dealership I worked at would sublet out to them.

Thats funny Dan! Those tickets will sit on the counter all day long!!! I can't believe they want a grand for one of those.

Shack, we send quite a few customers to DAS. They are a good bunch of people. Mostly send them those aftermarket a/c's on those conversion vans. Those can be a real pain!! Wait for the parts, the parts show up, wrong parts sent, wait for more parts, parts break removing the broken parts, order more parts, more wrong parts sent, well you get the idea! confused.gif

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Thanks again guys! Much appreciated!

      Smaller suckers and shiners.  One hint is that you may want to get your bait prior to getting close to the lake.  A lot of the area bait shops having a hard time getting the suckers and shiners in the past weeks.
    • Wanderer
      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.
