clearwater classic ice-ducer

6 posts in this topic

I bought a clearwater classic off of ebay (my other Clearwater LCD 40 was stolen from my truck a couple years ago. shocked.gif ) and I think the transducer is the 20 degree, since I can't pick up my jig - even a big walleye jig. Can anyone point me to someone around here where I can find an 8 degree ice ducer for my Classic. I checked at our sponsors place - but they just deal with Vex and Marcums..

Thanks.

Interesting day fishing on Duck - first time in 4 years since I've been ice fishing (I have the bug again - serious). Found mouse holes in my Eskimo - a bad locator - but at least my auger worked. I didn't drop my truck thru, and we actually caught a couple fish.

I would check EBay and you might get a quicker answer by posting this same question on the Equpt Expert Information forum.

Good luck!

Thanks. I thought I would dangle it out in the southcentral area if I had missed a business or something like that. I'll try that other forum.

Thanks again.

The gang at Reel Fishing and Tackle should be able to connect you with a service rep. or wholesaler who could help you out.

If I remember corectly, you can adapt a Vexilar ducer to work on the Clear Water Classic as they no longer are available for that application.

I had the same problem (mouse holes)with my portable, I found a great way to patch them. Then I had to take the auger in after a couple years sitting. That'll teach me to run all the gas out at the end of the season, that or start it up a few times throughout the summer. Once that screen & the needle valves in the carb varnish up, your done. crazy.gif

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.

      Hi guys and gals,   Does anyone know much about this lake? I don't fish this area of the state. We are looking to stay at Cedar Point Resort for a week. Just want to get to know the lake for what it is.   Is it a bass, northern, pan fish or walleye lake? Or all of the above? The surveys don't look that impressive.   Any good guides in the area?   Thanks.   Avid

      The bite is on in Trout lake. Remote lake walleye fishing has been good. A leech or crawler has  been producing nice fish. This last week Trout lake has been good for lake trout, walleye and bass. A camper had caught and released a 44 inch pike. Bass fishermen reported 100 fish days.   The Y-store is looking into taking on BWCA permits. Please encourage and support them to do so.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.
