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

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
