Installing a kicker bracket

13 posts in this topic

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.

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
