should be able to get quotes by contacting them. I'm more than happy with my WhiteCaps. fair price and great service. Mounted, like gregg52 said, right on the spot if you can bring it to him. Brian is a good guy. Don't know much about other options, other than WW's are gonna probably run you more. good luck.

I am more than pleased with the quality and performance of my White caps.

I mounted my own as it was very easy to do so I purchased them for a darn good price.

I gave Brian my boat model and size and what motor I had and they made them up and they fit perfect.

I also purchased white caps and installed them myself. They are easy to install and at least half the price of wave wackers.

Another vote for white caps. I had them on my previous boat and was very happy with them. Best bang for your buck in my opinion.

Here are my whitecaps. They cost $180 and I installed myself, pretty easy to do and it is a fun little project. They work great

I have a 2011 Lund 1675 Pro Guide with a Vantage transom mount and Wave Wackers.

$329 + $23.93 tax + $16.44 shipping = $369.37

I researched them all and decided on Wave Wackers because of 4 reasons:

#1: The custom Vantage cutout

#2: Cleaner look - not a bunch of rivets

#3: Removable with thumbscrews

#4: Corners were bent over - seems sturdier

Those 4 things were worth the extra money to me. And we're only talking $100 difference.

It might help but that is not what they are designed for. Sounds like you might need to raise your whole motor up a bit or you might have a transducer that is low on the transom.

      If Minn Kota doesn’t supply them any longer, you should search the typical on line sales sites in case someone is advertising new old stock parts. I have a 55lb Maxxum on my fishing boat that needs a new armature.  MK doesn’t sell them anymore either.  I did find some new lower units available and some armatures.  I don’t have the serial number sticker on my TM anymore to know for sure what armature to get so I took mine to an electric motor shop to be rewound.  The cost is about the same as a new lower unit though. I might just as well get the lower unit with new seals and such but it is really a wash on price and everything else is in good shape. Check more resources if you haven’t already is my advice.  Good luck.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.
