not too many people check the open water forum these days and i've got a very important question.

how much does it cost to fix trailer lights... wires and all? right now i hook them up to my truck and nothing happens at all.

You could look under Equipment forum as well. I would start checking the wires. I have a swing away tounge and it pinched some wires so it was an easy fix. Check the main connection where it hooks to your truck as well. It can be a lot of small things, but put some time in and save some money. Also, get a tester and check what's coming out of your truck. I've had the adapters that go from round to the 4 pin go bad on me and that's just a $10 fix.

if everything went all of a sudden I would start with the ground! If that goes nothing works. Check your wires before you spend the dough to replace it all. I think you can get a set of lights and wire for like $60 for the whole kit at Fleet if that is what you need to do.

I just replaced the wires for one of my boat trailors and I got the kit at Fleet Farm for 10$. Just make sure you cut your old wires at the adapter and tie your old wires to your new ones, then pull the new wires through. If you don't you will only make that mistake once. It is a pain in the rear to try to feed the wires through the tube. Also, mark where your wires currently connect if the lights are like mine there is more than one option.

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.

      I hope to be out early next week.  Weather and river level depending.  Will post a report if I make it out.  Boat all ready to go.

      I camp on an island so I don't have to worry about the landings and crowds. Do most of our fishing at night so I never worry about other anglers. If I needed to go to a public landing for opener I would never go.

      Here's the State's definition of a public water. Please note the highlighted text.  The Sucker is a Designated Trout Stream. (remember the blasting and improvements made back in the 70's? Those were public dollars that paid for it. )  That said, this isn't license for people to slob up private property, only to gain access to the stream. It might mean walking the shoreline from bluebird landing, or down from the freeway, but the water is open, and fishable,  to the high water mark. Subd. 15.Public waters. (a) "Public waters" means: (1) water basins assigned a shoreland management classification by the commissioner under sections 103F.201 to 103F.221; (2) waters of the state that have been finally determined to be public waters or navigable waters by a court of competent jurisdiction; (3) meandered lakes, excluding lakes that have been legally drained; (4) water basins previously designated by the commissioner for management for a specific purpose such as trout lakes and game lakes pursuant to applicable laws; (5) water basins designated as scientific and natural areas under section 84.033; (6) water basins located within and totally surrounded by publicly owned lands; (7) water basins where the state of Minnesota or the federal government holds title to any of the beds or shores, unless the owner declares that the water is not necessary for the purposes of the public ownership; (8) water basins where there is a publicly owned and controlled access that is intended to provide for public access to the water basin; (9) natural and altered watercourses with a total drainage area greater than two square miles; (10) natural and altered watercourses designated by the commissioner as trout streams; and (11) public waters wetlands, unless the statute expressly states otherwise.
