Need trailer roller help?


mnhunter2

Question

Got a mid 70's sparton trailer that has bunks on the sides center rollers and a pair of rollers towards the front of boat one on each side, will be putting a 16' lund deep fisherman with a 25 hp motor and I want to add more rollers so the boat will slide off/on very easy, anyone got any ideas?

That is a standard bunk trailer, check places like Cabelas or Gander mountain, they have roller replacements for bunks, or add on to help boat slide on trailer.

I have the exact same trailer.. very good trailer .. even tilts.

I put roller bunks on mine and the boat will roll off at any incline with ease. The V type rollers wont work.. your boat would be 5' in the air after all the hardware.

The bunks I put on are either 4' or 5' .. think they are 4'... dont disconnect the winch until you are over water after... you will launch the boat on the pavement otherwise... It happened to me in my driveway years ago. I was replacing the winch strap and the stern strap.. wasnt thinking and pulled the stern strap off, disconnected the front hook... started to pull the strap off the winch and there the boat went... right on the driveway(very slight incline). No damage was done except for a few scratches.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?

      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
