HEY ELY DUDES!!!

10 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

Anybody have any old plywood laying around that I can cut a 40" X 20" piece out of?? It can be 3/8 or 1/2 or even 5/8" thickness. I came up a little short building a locker for my ice rods so I can put them in my Otter sled and not have them get all beat up. I most certainly DON'T want to go to the lumber yard and buy an entire sheet especially since all I have used so far was scraps left over from the fish house project. Can anyone help me out?? laugh.gif Thanks!

Justin

Justin......Hey i am a dudette!!!!

Anyone have a ramp i can use to get my quad into the back of the truck? Another problem again with the cat.. and it has only 30 miles on it..

First it wouldn't turn off, had to undo the battery, when i connected it again it start up on it own and wont shut off no matter what i did. Then it wont go into Lo and now it wont start it just clicks the cellinoid is shot.. The guy at the Cat dealer just keep making excuses, and you know i just got my new battery from him, it didn't even come with one , i had to use a broken one cause he gave mine away and didn't have one.. Its driving me crazy..

Hey Tammi,

Sorry, but I don't have a ramp or a trailer. crazy.gif I have been looking to buy a trailer for a while, but can't come up with one in the right price range.

Good Luck,

Justin

Kallista,

If you bought it brand new and have had the concerns you have had, I would call dealer and have them come pick it for you. Down here, when you buy a tractor new, there are a couple dealers that will come and pick up for repairs or acc. to be installed. Worth a shot!

Good luck!

Hi Kallista.

I'll just throw this out there. You can make some decent ramps out of green treated 2x10's or 2x12's with a 2x4 screwed crossways on either end to hold it on the back of the truck. I use one for sliding my Voyager in and out of my truck if I'm alone. I would probably add firring strips or something on top for traction though.

I'm sure they'll take the weight. If you still need something in a month or so, and trust me on this, I can make a couple for you and bring them up on laker opener. I have extra at home.

How long is your truck bed?

Its a long bed... but i think the quad isn't that heavy i think if 2 people might be able to get it on the back bed..

Thank you for that info, it will be something i will be building come spring, maybe something that can be slid into the bed too to take with for loading and unloading for summer riding..Sounds like something i would be interested in.. and yes i can wait, i just need to get this to him, since he wont come and get it.. I am about ready to give him a piece of my mind with this thing..

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      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!
