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.

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      I would think so.  You still need a passport too.  Seems like the only change is loosening up on the mandatory check in.  You only have to if they ask you too.   I never took an RABC to exempt me from the check in requirement before this change.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released a draft operational plan for management of the Sand Dunes State Forest, located in central Sherburne County, about 3 miles west of Zimmerman. The draft operational plan will undergo a 45-day public review from June 21 to August 4. Members of the public are invited to read the draft plan on the DNR’s website and provide comments through an online form; both are located at www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes. The DNR will hold a public meeting to discuss the plan on July 10, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Big Lake High School cafeteria; 501 Minnesota Ave., in Big Lake. Members of the public will be invited to interact with DNR staff and learn more about the draft plan. The meeting will begin with an open house, followed by a brief DNR presentation about the plan and, conclude with an open microphone session. Last summer, the DNR organized a group of local residents, government leaders and other interested people to provide perspective and advice on management issues in the Sand Dunes State Forest. The group held six open meetings, and there were often additional people in the audience who joined in the discussion. These citizen-centered discussions helped shape the new draft plan released this week. Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, includes about 6,000 acres of land owned and managed by the state. It features pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna and prairie and is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers and others. For ongoing news regarding Sand Dunes State Forest and future meetings of the advisory group, sign up for email updates . Enter an email address and then select Sand Dunes State Forest from the drop down list.  Visit www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes for notes and resources related to the meetings.
