Deep cycle\ starter battery ?

1 post in this topic

I've had a Honda 15 horse 4-stroke outboard going on it's second season now. I've heard that the on-board charger would only charge the starter battery but it's kept the deep cycle part charged 100% since I've had it. I've run the trolling motor down to 50% then ran the outboard for a while and the gauge on the trolling motor is back on full. Is this normal? If it is I'm loving it. haven't used the charger on my battery since i've had the Honda. My battery is a combination starter\deepcycle. Has anyone else had this experience?

      I like to sacrifice larger shiners just for their scales.  Ill take my thumb nail and work em off in the hole and a big cloud of scales slowly make their way down.  Ive never been a fan of a pile of dead minnows under my hole.

      Fished today from 23ft-33ft. Moved 8 times. 3 guys. 2 fish. Thus far.... Case anyone else who prefers an honest report cares to hear one.   75+yrs experience with 40+ on this lake during winter. For whatever its worth.

      Has anyone been out the past couple of days and if so how is travel across the lake? Cam u get most anywhere with a 4x4 pickup?

      You might be able to get away with one and half minnows at a time, but no more.... lol

      My experiences would suggest, R&D  resort on Straight Lake and Eagles landing on 5th crow wing.
