The two I have seen and used are white cap and wave wackers. They both work good. White cap are a little cheaper, but they work good thats what I have on my 17' lund. They are easy to install.

I've had Wave Wackers on a couple of boats and have been very impressed with them, and the customer service.

I don't have any first-hand experience with the other brands but have only heard good things about all of them, have not heard any negatives.

I think just as important as the brand is having them custom cut to the setup of your transom. My Wave wackers were made at the dealer to fit both my Gas kicker and my Transom mount Electric. ( Had to have both!)

I used whitecaps on my Crestliner. They were very easy to install and looked/worked great. A lot cheaper then waver wackers too.

I've had Wave Wackers and had problems with them. I called them with my problems and was told that I was on my own. I never called them again. White Caps all the way.

With one of my sets of Wave Wackers, I didn't like the way water could splash between my kicker and my big motor. I called Wave Wackers, told them what I had and the measurements, and got a replacement the same day at no charge.

I've had Wave Wackers for one season now and they do the job I ask of them. Seem to be very well designed and built.

I have Wave Wackers on my 2025, and they come off easy and are very tough. I have cracked other brands in big waves, but these have been tough

I've had four sets of Wave Wackers on four different boats, been flawless. Lost one trailering down the road, my fault, went to the shop and not only did I get a new one but they upgraded the rubber on the old one...total cost $20. I would call that great service and a customer for life.

The three most popular brands, all mentioned above, of splash guards do the job and hold up well. The only difference is the fit and finish. I think WaveWackers have the best appearance and sport look.

I've had both the Wave Wackers and White Caps. The Wackers had the best finish. The White Caps are easy to modify and take on and off. They both are very good. The Caps are much cheaper and I got them the next day, which was very nice. With the Wackers I had to wait 10 days before I got them, but that was several years ago, and they may have been really busy at the time.

      Good morning all,   I will be heading up to camp with a couple family members at Devils Track Campground this weekend. I've caught plenty of smallies from shore there, but I was interested in the walleye population. This time, I will have my boat with me. Not looking for any honey holes, just some recommendations on what they may be biting on, or what depth they may be hanging in. I see some groups of islands near the south side of the lake... anybody know anything about fishing around those?    Any information is much appreciated. thanks in advance and have a great week!!

      Been pretty stable in the low 70s.  73, 74, depending on time of day..   With the cool nights, was 55 last night, and moderate days in the 70s, it seems likely to stay there.   Pleasant for water sports.

      I've heard some discouraging information lately as I chat with folks at the bow range. I was looking forward to the unlimited antletless harvest in 601 so I spent some time scouting the rather small WMAs we have and found some good sign. Word is that although the pressure isn't too bad for deer during archery season, the squirrel hunters will be thick. Not only will they crack at one in the tree you're in with a .22 but they just walk all over the place with no regard to your being there and ruin the woods as far as any possibility of deer traffic. Is it really that bad?    The problem is that our WMAs are so tiny that a few squirrel hunters can trash the whole morning hunt easily.    I love small game hunting too but anytime I'd see a hunter in a tree I would travel very far around him out of respect for other hunters. I realized last waterfowl season the majority of metro hunters don't have that respect though.

      Thanks, it was a great morning. Now that I'm addicted to the fly, what do I do with all that expensive spin gear??

      Any updates on water temps?

      No idea the brand, it's an 8 inch, it's in good shape needs a sharpening I would imagine.  Haven't used it for a couple years

      Hey guys heading up to the canadian side in a few weeks just wondering when fishing over rocks what works better 1/4 or 3/8 for jigs to stay out of the rocks?

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.
