what kind of boat? If you do any backtrolling, you will be very pleased with them, just make sure they fit your boat well. 85% of my fishing is back trolling, and I wouldn't even think about not having them.

They are the best thing since sliced bread. I would never own a boat without them. I have never had them get in the way.

What does a set of WW go for? The WhiteCaps for my boat would be $206, which isn't too bad.

got a lund 20 foot boat with an 8hp kicker... never used wave wackers in my life and i do just fine catching the hogs of summer...... the only time wave wackers are necessary are when your a tilling troller..... all those other guys put thedm on for looks..... boats are meant to get wet....

splash guards are not just for looks. they are there to keep water out of your boat. they are needed on wheel boats just the same as a tiller if you back troll. 2 waves back to back over the transom can swamp a 20 foot boat easy. last year there were 2 boats that capsized here on lake mille lacs. i back troll about 15% to 25% of my open water fishing and would not have a boat without them. there are 3 major brands that i would look at, wave wackers, which is what i have, whitecaps, and walleye masters. mine don't get in the way of anything.........tom fellegy

I don't have them and any wind when backtrolling results in water in my boat. Sounds like I'll be ordering them. Thanks for the advice.

I have the wave wackers on a 16' Smokercraft tiller. I can backtroll or sit on a spot that larger boats with big electrics get blown off of. Love to backtroll when it gets rough.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
