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

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
