Tri-Tronics Shock collar question

11 posts in this topic

I was in N.D. last week and lost the Transmitter for my Pro 200 XL 2 dog model shock collar. Does anyone know if and where someone can get just a transmitter. Obviously it has to be reprogrammed to the frequencies of my 2 collars. Reconditioned would be fine also. I really don't fell like dropping another $600 for a new system.

Thanks

Nate

I think the best thing to do is to contact Tritronics. They have excellent customer service. Hopefully they can help you out.

I 'lost' a transmitter a couple seasons ago. Called their service department and was told I could get a replacement. I believe they need the collar or a serial number off the collar to make a new transmitter. I think it was right around a $100 for just the transmitter. I have also seen ads in mags for a place that sells refurbished collars. Luckily I was a procrastinator and found the transmitter the following weekend walking the same area deer hunting. I even went as far as sending TT a suggestion to put a reverse beeper option on the transmitter so a person could push a button on the collar and the transmitter would make a sound.

I found a tritronics Pro 200 transmitter a couple years ago off the echo trail. It's been sitting in my garage collecting dust- it's yours if you want to pay shipping charges.

Redhooks, is it a 2 dog model? If so I would definitely be willing to do that.

I emailed Tri Tronics, but am still awaiting a reply.

Thanks for the info

Not sure- it just says pro 200. Has a red button and 2 black on the side w/ a black/yellow dial and small black dial on top. Free to anyone who wants it.

It doesn't have a small toggle switch between the red and black buttons? I think you just have the single dog model. I'll take it though. I really only need it for 1 dog. Send me an email on where to send the check for shipping. Nateabrahams@hotmail.com

Just a thought.

I would think the frequency would be different between the two transmitters otherwise I might be "shocking" someone else's dog.

The frequencies will be different but I contacted the collar clinic and they said they would reprogram it for me.

ok, just making sure. Now that you mention the name, it is the one I was thinking of. Good Luck.

I got some bright reflective tape and put it around the transmitter to help locate it. Also an orange lanyard helps as well. Proabably not much help when it's 200 miles away in ND, but it's a thought. Also, I put my name and phone number on it with one of those electric pens that scratches onto metal. Finally, I bought sort of a holster thing with a strap that went around my shoulder.

      I have OR 18s on the front and OR16s on the back and it works just fine. I have never had a board get off which is what you want on Superior. I use a mix of Offshore and Opti Tackle boards.

      Hi guys!  I used to be on this site long ago (participating mostly in the Mille Lacs forum), and the system wouldn't recognize my email.  So I created a new user name.   I'm planning to spend May and June in Ely.  My project is to autochart and create maps of a few small lakes I like off the Echo Trail, which I'll do via my Helix I have mounted on my bright orange fishing kayak.   I don't need any advice, as I pretty much know the area and what works to catch fish.  I'm just looking to possibly connect with other Ely anglers while I'm up there.  I'm tentatively planning on starting next week, assuming the "wintery mix" and wind in the forecast abates.  I'll be paddling around a bunch of different small lakes, going back and forth and back and forth, listening to either WELY or WEVE on my radio.  So if you see me, stop by and say hey.

      First off, welcome to the site. The Red River page gets kind of quiet but if you look back at previous posts there's a lot of good info. I've never fished much for cats but when I have I have always used cut up goldeye. I've also heard frogs are good but I have no first hand experience with that.    1- I feel that the fishery in Fargo is excellent and overlooked by a lot of people. The biggest eyes that I've caught have been on the river.  2,3- I normally use a chartreuse twister tail on the river with a jig head. The main reason for the color choice is because that is what I have an abundance of. I've caught them on white and yellow also. I don't use live bait at all unless the kids are along. They're not really able to do much pitch and retrieve yet and the minnows give them a little better chance I feel.  4- the only thing I've used is cut bait so I'd recommend finding some gold eyes or some suckers and chunk them up for bait.  5- last time I looked the ND NR license was something like $35.    My biggest tip for the river and pitching jigs would be that if you aren't getting snagged once in a while your jig is too light. Hung up too often and you are too heavy. I'm normally in the 1/8-1/4 ounce range. I have also caught a bunch of fish pitching cranks. I wasn't a believer until I watched Ed Carlson fish next to me and reel in fish while I kept on pitching my jig and not getting anything. Try something that's got a nice wide wobble. And if you are going to toss anything into the river be sure to remember that anything thats tied onto that line may not come back. I have donated lots of tackle to the old river gods over the years but I have also been rewarded with a lot of fish and some real dandies. These river fish have a lot of fight in them.     Remember that if you're keeping any walleyes or sauger on the red is that the limit is less than the MN and ND bag limit. I have seen more than one person ticketed at the north dam with their stringer of 4 eyes.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then the eyes moved in and I decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.
