I have the same unit and occasionally the big plug on the back will loosen up, did you check that and the fuse??

I don't have the problem that you have, but I do have it flash on and off. And if I move the power cord, it will go out completely. Does this sound like a power plug-in problem or maybe the inline-fuse is shot? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Another possibility is the fuseholder itself... the fuseholder they put on these was pretty low quality... Make sure you are getting a good connection across the fuse.

where is the fuse located? I don't think there is one on this one. I had it working eariler this year and then is just stopped working. so it must be some kind of power connection problem.

Thanks for the help guys

On mine, there is an in-line fuse holder near the battery end of the cable. I believe it was a yellow push together type.

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
