12V marine batteries and VEXILAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6 posts in this topic

If your vex battery runs out can you connect directly to a marine battery in the permanent. I was wondering about the amps or whatever being to strong and ruining my best friend on the ice.

If you reply please have done it before so I know real life experience. Thanks

You can.

I have a Vex hardwired in my house, off 2 deep cycle 12V batteries wired in parallel. Just make sure you have your in-line fuse to protect your best friend.

that is what I mean... what kind of fuse would you recommend. I was planning on using jumper cables in case of emergency.

I have a little 5 amp cartridge fuse, the same as the setup I have on my portable Vex in the ol' Genz box

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
