Marine Electrical Work

Recommended Posts

LakeCenterRefugee

Now that the ice has arrived, it is a perfect time to have work done on the old boat. I guess. We have a '96 Ranger Fisherman that is having electrical problems (ie shorts on some accessories). Does anyone have a referral or recommendation for an experienced and reliable mechanic or electrician who works on boats? Thank you, and Merry Christmas!

I'll give another second to Actions Fishing for boat electricals. He came through for me when I needed new guts for my Zercom LCF-40. Just "happened" to have an LCF40 circuit board and LCD lying under his bench. Too bad - I think I killed the LCF40 again on the first outing this winter. Good luck!

Bad News! Jack and Action's are not doing any electical or mechanical work unitl March! They lost their lease on their shop, and are too busy at the bait shop to take on any work. Any other referrals would be greatly appreciated. I would really like to get this thing resolved well b/4 the opener. Thanks!

I owe Jack at Action's Fishing a HUGE APOLOGY. I misunderstood what he told me. Please be advised that Action's DID NOT LOSE THEIR LEASE. I am sorry if my last post caused any confusion.

There's another place called Fish 'Lectronics in Columbia Hts on University Ave you could try. I've never been there, so I can't vouch for them.

A few years back I had to fix the cable for my Clearwater Classic (before FL-18). I went in and they took care of it on the spot and I fished with it that day. I also purchased my LMS-320 from them the year before last.

Are you having problems with locators, or is it in the boat wiring? For boat wiring I would go to Frankies in Chisago. It is a drive but for my guide boat, I'll trust those guys.

I have had them install electronic items for me, and they done great work.

Frankies also sells Rangers, so if there was a problem for the wiring in the boat they may seen it before or have access to the people who know. Sorry I lost my faith in Crystal marine, to many issues to list.

Thanks for all the recommendations! It's really helpful! The problems mostly seem to be with accessories in the dashboard and the aireators (sp?). Thanks!

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
