I need some guides (not tips) replaced on several of my rods,anyone know who does that around here?Or does anyone know how to go about doing it themselves?I know the tips are melted on via hot glue but what about the guides??

as far as i know you use a small diameter string like sewing thread, and epoxy. the string holds it there and the epoxy glues it and hold the string together. i did it to one of mine but it didnt turn out to well. you should be able to buy the guides at a tackel shop. i didnt realize you live in wadena, me too, check webers hardware. i know they have the guides, im not sure if they will fix them or not.

this is just my 2 cents

Ordered a couple sets of I think they were called B and M slide on guides from Bass Pro.I'll try fiberglass resin to anchor them but I have my doubts.Couldn't find any other repair kits out there without having to buy a whole rod building set that got to be real spendy.Too nice of rods to toss away.Would still rather pay someone to do a descent job if anyone knows of anyone.If not I'll post a report of how the quick fix holds up,may be awhile till they get a work out.Have a boat load of rods n reels,can never have too many...unless you ask the wife smile.gif

My dad's a rod builder. If you can get them to me in Fargo before Labor Day weekend, I'll have him fix them and they'll be back here on Mon. He'll fix them a heck of a lot nicer than a shrink wrap or quick fix kits like you referred to. Also, it costs very little to have him fix a few guides. I guarentee his work.

I think that Bens Bait in Battle Lake maybe does it. Not sure though.

      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.
