Depth finder batteries

7 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is a way to load test thies batteries. I have had a few of my batteries for about 6 years and am getting kinda iffy on using them on day trips. What do you guys do?

I'm sure there is a way to load test them, but since you are on 6 years, and they are only like $15-$20, it might just be easier to pop for a new one.

Bring them in to Batteries Plus and they will test them for you.

FYI,

Fleet Farm has the 7 amp hour vex style batteries for $12.99. I just picked up a new one for a spare.

Gus, you rock! I was hoping to find a cheap extra for a 3 day trip to URL in January.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
