      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Classic 70's Remote

Recommended Posts

GRfisher

Last weekend we went on a little trip to my aunts house and we took the dog along. However somewhere along the way, we lost or left behind our remote. But we do not have it anymore.

I was wonderin gif anyone would happen to have an extra lying around for a good deal or if anyone knew of how i could get another on of a good price.

Thanks for your help,
GRfisher

Collars don't work that way. Each one has a (relatively) unique frequency. The collar and transmitter are set for each other. DON'T BUY ONE FROM JUST ANYBODY. They'll be ripping you off.

That said, you'll have to contact Tri-Tronics.

Bummer, huh? Sorry.

GRfisher - one place you may wanna check with would be collarclinic dot com. They have new and reconditioned stuff, and their prices weren't bad last time I checked.

Good luck.

Idog is correct, the collar and remote combination most likely will not work. You will have to have the collar or the remote reprogrammed for matching frequencies. Not sure who would do that though!

One thing you might want to try is to just call Tri Tronics themselves and see if they have a decent option. Both me and a buddy of mine had our collars go out. My buddies was still in the year warranty but mine was two years past. We both sent our stuff in (two years apart) and got brand new ones back no questions asked. They've got my vote until I get treated differently. You might be able to buy one from them cheaply knowing it's the correct frequency with the serial numbers. Or they might ask you to send your collar to them. Who knows, might be worth asking.

I also lost my classic 70 remote. For the 2 dog model it's $165 to replace. Haven't got around to getting it yet.

Well thanks everyone. Sounds like i will contact Tri Tronics then and see what they'll do for me.

I guess i never thought about the different frequencies thing, but it does make sence.

Thanks again,
GRfisher

The collar clinic can help you as well and might be cheaper than Tri Tronics.Unless Tri Tronics gives you a new remote, they some times do nice things like that.

I will get a number for you as soon as I get back up stairs to find my Gun Dog magazine.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
