Installing a kicker bracket

I had hopes of pulling this off myself, but it ain't gonna happen...no access to the transom (on the inside) and I don't want to muck it up. Any suggestions on a good marine place/guy to do this sort of thing? I guess I could go go to RJ's, but they probably couldn't get at it for a while anyway, and I need it this week. Thanks!

He is a local Duluth Guy so try the phone book. West Duluth. I think the west 47th ave area? He used to have a website but I see thats down now. He rigged my boat along with many of the local league and tourney guys. Knows his stuff and a good price.

Just talked to Kenny and he is in the process of moving and has all his tools etc. are all over so he wont be doing any work like this for who knows how long. Sorry Traveler but we tried.

Hey, I appreciate the effort Steve. I spoke to the manager at GM today and he knew Kenney too, and also thought he was "between" garages. He did give me another guy who may be able to do it, waiting on a return call from him. I trailered the boat down to RJ today after speaking to them on the phone; they wanted to see the boat to see if they could do the job. The guy who looked at it was knowledgeable and helpful, but they want me to contact the boat manufacturer to see if the boat will handle it. That I don't understand at all. I really didn't think this would be such a problem, go figure.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article
