Depth Finder lock -- durafafe

12 posts in this topic

These are locks that can be used to lock the screws on the sides of your depth finder graph.

Does anyone use them? Like them?

Thanks

Get a Johnny-Ray mount and take the LCR off when your trailering it's better for the electronics in the long run.

FA --

Thanks for the info.

I have heard other people say that about electronics -- better to unhook. I also see most people leave them on ... hard to say.

Thanks

Anyone else???

I always pull mine off and store it in a locked storage compartment. I don't know about you guys, but I can't afford to be to careful.

Yeah -- that is true.

The lock thing seems pretty neat, but might be easier and safer just to unhook and take it inside.

I always take it off and keep it in a storage dept. It takes two seconds. This isnt as much as for transporting, but more so I dont forget and leave it facing up towards the sun and rain.

I alway's shake my head when I see guys trailering long distances i.e. from the lakes to fargo with electronics on. That stuff is expensive and stuff in your boat tends to take a beating on trailers with no real suspension short of leaf springs. I mean each is to their own decisions - however in my opinion it's just plain lazy. But then again if money grows on trees so be it.

Take it off while trailering, it's your safest bet.

All good points. I am afraid that I will leave it someplace, it will fall out of the truck or something like that. Maybe I am just being a little to "what if"

The more I think about it the more I think the locks are a waste of money and that it is just as easy to take it off the boat. I think there would be situations that it would be nice to have it but not most of the time.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
