7 AMP BATTERY QUESTION

Question

ice_it_06

Pulled my LX-3tc out the other day again to top off the battery. Unit was NEW last year and only used maybe 20 hours all season.

Did so about (6) weeks ago as well.

The battery read -0- according to the meter.

Plugged in the charger and it started charging.

Took about (5) hours and was reading 100%

Unhooked it and it held 100% for a day.

Today (day 3) it's @ 90%

Is this normal discharge ? Want to make sure I'm juiced up and good to go. Might buy another just for assurance.

Digital meter was NOT connected but to just check charge level.

it probably has lost some capacity due to its being discharged for so long. you are always supposed to store your batteries full and top them off at least once a month.

It was @ full charge at seasons end and topped off three times since up through Sept. Don't know why it was dead or reading dead.

Meter was not connected to it either !!

You may have a weak battery.

I would turn on the flasher and let it run for a couple of hours. Recheck the charge meter after that. If you still have at least 70% charge your battery is still good.

Be sure to recharge your battery after the test run! wink.gif

Paul:

I picked one up in Owatonna FF yesterday.

Was $19.99 put it on the counter.

Gal at the counter grabbed a box identical to the one I picked out. Hers had a charger in it, mine did not.

Batteries were identical, mine was $19.99 hers was $15.99 (lol)

I looked at her and she said don't even ask, I don't know why .(lol)

My battery seems ok but another one will only be insurance !!

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
