wiring battery on canoe...

Question

cyang1

i often fish by myself in my canoe. i have a trolling motor mounted to the back of the canoe, i put the battery back there, and i sit back there as well. now there's no weight in the front at all. how would i go about putting the battery in the front of the canoe so there could be some weight distribution- what cables i'd need to get/ from where can i get it?

thanks if you can help!

Try putting the battery in a milk crate up front. Then run jumper cables to the back. Zip tie them along the side. Make sure you tape up the connections though.

I've been doing it that way and it really works nice. Good Luck!

Hey Dan I thought you were supposed to answer "I've got them from Valv, they work really slick, 8gauge trolling motor cables for $ 15.00"..... grin.gifgrin.gif

Whoops V., sorry!

I'm kind of a king cobbler and it works for me. But if I knew you had them I sure would have got something like that from ya. Possibly a better box for the battery too. Instead of a milk crate.

No problem Dan, I was just giving you hard time....Actually I like the milk crate better has taller sides.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
