      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Minnkota Copilot

Question

tearin' lips

I just bought a powerdrive from a gentleman, its only a little over a year old and it was outfitted with a copilot before I purchased it. I want to make it a copilot again. Does anyone know what I need to purchase to make it into a copilot again.

1.)Do I need to get the system, or will the copilot remote work.

2.)Also the copilot remote says its for the pd/v2 will it matter?

3.) How about the wireless pedel, will that work and has anyone had any experience with it.

Thanks gentlemen/ladies I appreciate the responses.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

If the guy you bought it from left the co-pilot attachment on it you just nee the remote. One side of the motor will be a little bulkier and will say Co-Pilot in big yellow letters. If it doesn't you need to buy the whole kit. I think they run around $149 but I got mine for $100 off ebay. Never heard of the wirless pedal so can't give any advice there. I like the little remote mounted to my rod or wrist.

1. The CoPilot consists of a transmitter and a receiver. If the receiver is on the motor, then all you need to do is purchase a transmitter (FOB or wireless pedal) and initialize the reciever to the new transmitter.

2. If the motor is over a year old then it is not a V2. The receivers are different for the V2 and older PowerDrives, but the transmitters are the same. (Same software, but the plug from the receiver to the main board is different.)

3. Wireless pedal and FOB are interchangeable. Wireless pedal is less popular.

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.

      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question...

      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
