5 posts in this topic

My battery seems to be toast and won't hold a charge for any length of time.The original is a 12v dc7amp hr.Cabela's does'nt carry one but has an 8ampdc12v. My question, is how critical is it or should I stay with marcums original?

Mel,

That battery will be just fine.

12 volts is 12 volts and amp hours is just how long you use it before it goes dead. Its rated at 1 amp per hour. So a 7 amp hour battery will last 7 hours with a 1 amp draw, a 8 amp battery will last 8 hours with a 1 amp draw. So the battery Cabelas has will last 1/8 longer then your old battery.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
