Marine Electrical Work

Recommended Posts

LakeCenterRefugee

Now that the ice has arrived, it is a perfect time to have work done on the old boat. I guess. We have a '96 Ranger Fisherman that is having electrical problems (ie shorts on some accessories). Does anyone have a referral or recommendation for an experienced and reliable mechanic or electrician who works on boats? Thank you, and Merry Christmas!

I'll give another second to Actions Fishing for boat electricals. He came through for me when I needed new guts for my Zercom LCF-40. Just "happened" to have an LCF40 circuit board and LCD lying under his bench. Too bad - I think I killed the LCF40 again on the first outing this winter. Good luck!

Bad News! Jack and Action's are not doing any electical or mechanical work unitl March! They lost their lease on their shop, and are too busy at the bait shop to take on any work. Any other referrals would be greatly appreciated. I would really like to get this thing resolved well b/4 the opener. Thanks!

I owe Jack at Action's Fishing a HUGE APOLOGY. I misunderstood what he told me. Please be advised that Action's DID NOT LOSE THEIR LEASE. I am sorry if my last post caused any confusion.

There's another place called Fish 'Lectronics in Columbia Hts on University Ave you could try. I've never been there, so I can't vouch for them.

A few years back I had to fix the cable for my Clearwater Classic (before FL-18). I went in and they took care of it on the spot and I fished with it that day. I also purchased my LMS-320 from them the year before last.

Are you having problems with locators, or is it in the boat wiring? For boat wiring I would go to Frankies in Chisago. It is a drive but for my guide boat, I'll trust those guys.

I have had them install electronic items for me, and they done great work.

Frankies also sells Rangers, so if there was a problem for the wiring in the boat they may seen it before or have access to the people who know. Sorry I lost my faith in Crystal marine, to many issues to list.

Thanks for all the recommendations! It's really helpful! The problems mostly seem to be with accessories in the dashboard and the aireators (sp?). Thanks!

      Spent the weekend on Ottertail, fishing tough. Waves 1 to 3 ft. 4" rain Sat. night, on/off rain all weekend. Caught a few biggest 18". Water crystal clear 15+ ft, even with waves, due to millions of Zebra Mussel in lake. Weeds and clam shells had many Zebras attached. Still better than working.

      My intent is not to bash here. Many Rapalas are great lures but a heads up I had 5 of them on the casting deck of the boat in the heat within 3 hours every one of the split from the heat!!! Wow that was money down the tubes. I have never had that happen. Also it is never a good idea to slap a lure to get weeds off I'm aware of that nonetheless my bride slapped her's to get a weed off nothing violent but what she got back was a lure in pieces. I love many of the lures but wont be buying any off those again. I have had the lips pull out on the Shad Raps before. My favorite is the Fat raps those are indestructible.

      It happens.  If you timed if post-spawn, its definitely tougher.  It takes them a while to recover and get into their summer pattern.

      Stovetop?  Walleye on west end is tough because there are fewer and they are mostly larger fish that don't seem to behave the same way as smaller ones.  
    • vermilionfox
      Pike should be working well on the deep weedlines leading into the two slop bays that Del mentioned. They are commonly calle "The Nursery". Largies should be anywhere in the weeds. Del also hit the nail on the head about the Windsock island and the bay behind it. The windsock island area can be a good walleye producer in the early mornings and sometimes in the evenings. Don't forget to try the larger "bay" (really more of an indentation) past the Windsock island and its associated bay. Lots of boulders in there so be careful, you'll see some shiny rocks! I've had good success in there  for both species of bass and pike, lots of nice sunnies too. There is a reef that runs from the point directly out across Norwegian from the resort marina and runs from there to the other shore running to the northeast. Good spot for the evening walleye bite. You'll probably also want to try fishing the Merry Go Round and the Stovepipe on Wak-Em-Up Bay for walleyes and smallies. I'll try to post more info when I have a bit more time!

      Thanks for the heads up. You going over weed tops or deep?
    • MinnowBuckets
      Is anyone doing well for smallies or walleyes on the river right now? I haven’t been out in over a week and the water has gotten pretty muddy with the recent rain.
    • jigginjim
      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.

      Has been pretty slow lately. One night you do decent then the next nothing. Very hit or miss.

      Aren't there some great spots along the Mississippi south of the TC? I'm not familiar with that part of the state but it seems I've heard things.
