Issues!!!

Is there any way to repair a transducer cable? I bought a boat and the transducer line was cut, and it would work sometimes but now it doesn't work at all, I noticed it yesterday and messed around with it and made it worse. It's cut completely now, is there any way to splice them together?

Ya what kind. I maybe have one from a locater that took a crap. You maybe could solder it if you were a good steady hand.

Most likely it is a coaxial cable - you'll be best off just buying a new one.

Yeah it's a older one, humminbird LCR 4000, but it's not like I got a couple hundred bucks layin around to buy a new one. I got some tips that might help me, I mean hell wy not give it a shot. I was gonna last night but I had to help an older guy by South Twin drop a 60 foot spruce that got hung up in his White Pines from that nasty storm Sunday. I'm gonna try to splice tonight. I'll let you know how it works. Thanks

call reeds in walker. Had issues with our transducer/unit and they sent one it wasn't the problem and we sent it back and they credited us back everything. Tell them model and they will send you the right one. Nice guys up there.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
