LX-5 battery

6 posts in this topic

I was an (Contact Us Please) and didn't disconnect the digital charger from the battery after last season. Now I think the battery is shot. I'm sure I could order one from Marcum, but I believe the local L&M Supply has a similar, if not same battery. My question is this: How do I get the charger off of the old battery and onto the new? By looking at it, it looks like it's been fastened to the battery by a velcro looking material, but it will not come off. When I tried to force it, it wouldn't budge and made a sound like I was cracking it so I stopped. Any ideas?

My lx3 charger just had double faced tape on it. I would use a puddy knife and scrape it off. I reattached it with velcro.

Don't feel bad, I left the DCS on my battery last summer too and ruined a good battery. You can get these 12V, 7A-h batteries in quite a few different stores such as Fleet Farm, Gander, Scheels, etc. They sometimes come with a charger that you can disregard and use your Marcum charger again, but they should still be under $20.

LOL I have this exact thread running in the Ice fishing forum. It is glued to the top of the battery with some kind of epoxy glue. Fleet farm sells the exact battery that was in mine made by genesis. I got the 7 amp for 18 bucks and they wanted 34 for the 9 amp one. It was recommended to me to use a razor and cut it off. A Chisel with a hammer works better. Just tap light and make sure the chisel is sharp.

      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 caught 4 eyes and 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.
