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.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
