Tri-Tronics Shock collar question


natebuddy

Recommended Posts

I was in N.D. last week and lost the Transmitter for my Pro 200 XL 2 dog model shock collar. Does anyone know if and where someone can get just a transmitter. Obviously it has to be reprogrammed to the frequencies of my 2 collars. Reconditioned would be fine also. I really don't fell like dropping another $600 for a new system.

Thanks

Nate

I think the best thing to do is to contact Tritronics. They have excellent customer service. Hopefully they can help you out.

I 'lost' a transmitter a couple seasons ago. Called their service department and was told I could get a replacement. I believe they need the collar or a serial number off the collar to make a new transmitter. I think it was right around a $100 for just the transmitter. I have also seen ads in mags for a place that sells refurbished collars. Luckily I was a procrastinator and found the transmitter the following weekend walking the same area deer hunting. I even went as far as sending TT a suggestion to put a reverse beeper option on the transmitter so a person could push a button on the collar and the transmitter would make a sound.

I found a tritronics Pro 200 transmitter a couple years ago off the echo trail. It's been sitting in my garage collecting dust- it's yours if you want to pay shipping charges.

Redhooks, is it a 2 dog model? If so I would definitely be willing to do that.

I emailed Tri Tronics, but am still awaiting a reply.

Thanks for the info

Not sure- it just says pro 200. Has a red button and 2 black on the side w/ a black/yellow dial and small black dial on top. Free to anyone who wants it.

It doesn't have a small toggle switch between the red and black buttons? I think you just have the single dog model. I'll take it though. I really only need it for 1 dog. Send me an email on where to send the check for shipping. [email protected]

Thanks

Just a thought.

I would think the frequency would be different between the two transmitters otherwise I might be "shocking" someone else's dog.

The frequencies will be different but I contacted the collar clinic and they said they would reprogram it for me.

ok, just making sure. Now that you mention the name, it is the one I was thinking of. Good Luck.

I got some bright reflective tape and put it around the transmitter to help locate it. Also an orange lanyard helps as well. Proabably not much help when it's 200 miles away in ND, but it's a thought. Also, I put my name and phone number on it with one of those electric pens that scratches onto metal. Finally, I bought sort of a holster thing with a strap that went around my shoulder.

      Someone is always catching them somewhere but so far this week that someone is not me. Still a few ideas to try but running out quickly

      On the south end...   Summer fishing is prime time right now up at Lake of the Woods.  Good numbers of walleyes being caught.  A nice variety of sizes, which bodes well for the fishery.  Small fish, eaters, slot fish which must be released (19.5 - 28.0 inches) and trophy walleyes over 28 inches all in the mix.     The mud is holding big numbers of fish and two main fishing techniques are being used to get it done. The first technique is drifting or trolling crawler harnesses.  Using a two ounce bottom bouncer and a two snelled spinner will do the trick.  Best spinner colors have been gold, gold/pink, orange/chartreuse.     Making sure your weight is near the bottom, but not dragging the bottom is key.  Try to maintain a 45 degree angle and make sure the spinner is spinning, normally 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Walleyes will load up, almost feeling like you are dragging a wet sock.  A good feeling!   The second technique catching good numbers of walleyes is trolling crankbaits over the mud basin.  To get crankbaits down to schools of fish normally in that 28 - 32' range, lead core line, snap weights, downriggers and even a 4 ounce bottom bouncer with 6' mono or fluorocarbon leader with shallow diving crankbait will work well.   Most popular depths on the mud are 30'-36' of water over the mud basin.  Not every walleye in the lake is focusing on the same forage base.  There has also been success in that 12-20' range over sand and even shallower along shore.     Reefs can be their own ecosystem and can always hold fish.  Fish can be on top, sides, on the rock to mud transition or even adjacent to reef out in the mud.  Go fishing, watch electronics. On the Rainy River...  With drier weather, the flow of water is decreasing on the Rainy River.  Water clarity has improved and so has fishing.     Most are targeting the edges of the main current where water is slower moving.  Points, bridges, underwater structure, docks and bends in the river can all change current flow, creating good spots for fish to live. Jigs, spinners and crankbaits are all catching fish.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River with literally thousands of fun spots to fish. The sturgeon season is open.  Some nice fish were caught this week.  Anchor up on a hole or adjacent to a hole in the river and soak some nightcrawlers.  Local tackle shops have flat no roll sinkers and sturgeon rigs.     There is a big population of smallmouth bass in the Rainy River.  Although they don't receive much attention due to walleyes, they are abundant. Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing is the rule of thumb using three techniques, jigging, trolling spinners and trolling crankbaits.     Reports of walleyes sliding deeper off of structure.  If fishing a "spot on a spot", jigging is the preferred method.  If fish are spread out or you are searching a flat, spinners and crankbaits will cover more water and walleyes are normally cooperative.   Some big pike caught again this week.  These predators are often hanging around schools of walleyes and saugers, but rocky points, bays and sunken islands are great spots as well. Muskie anglers continue reporting good success fishing a variety of structure amongst the islands.

      CFD200, Nice Fish!  are you on the east or west side of Vermilion?
    • monstermoose78
      Just have been busy and I will work ok a report tonight. 
    • CFD200
      We had difficulty finding any walleyes this weekend.  The previous two weekends I marked a lot of fish with few takers.  Didn't  mark many this weekend but, caught this 24" mark.

      Fish cleaning shack has been pretty quiet at pike bay resort last 2 days. Been on several spots on big bay with little success.  Family wants to lose their $$ at casino today.  Hopefully get out later today. Good luck and keep posting.  
    • FishinCT
      Any recent info out of vermilion? Coming up for next 4 days and will report back as well. Haven’t fished in the summer up there for a long time
    • Dash 1

      Blame you?  You needed it there and I knew you couldn’t change your, um, *stretch?* time.
    • smurfy
      🤣🤔 I can't believe you didn't try blaming me.   It's been a while since I stopped there... to check the landing  🤭
