Looking for....

Question

sonoranhope

I am having a problem finding (or identifying the name of) the plastic clips that insert into the ends of an aluminum pole (this picture is some sort of a inboard end??) but just to give you an idea of what it looks like....

OPEX1275.jpg

I need it for a support pole for the center of my ice house... it needs to be 1/2" o.d. for quick clipping on to my conduit frame... (they slip into the end of the pole) if anyone can help I would be forever grateful. I dont even know what to call them to "google" them. Ive searched about 6 hours confused.gif... Please post any links also. Thanks in advance...

Or check out a Camping or RV center. They look like same holders you'ld use for a pop up camper.

I needed replacements for my old Clam. I found the website and was able to order what I needed. Just search for Clam portables and you should be able to find them.

Excellent... That helped me alot. BUT.... does anyone know what you call them??? or a part number? on the Clam website, it doesnt say what size they actually fit. Im getting closer though... here are more pictures I have came across in my search....

What brand shelter is it off of?

I call them a doohickey. Really though most big box stores that carry shelters will have them. Bring in your old spreader pole with the doohickey and you should be able to find them.

Ask for a Quick Connect for a spreader pole.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.

      thank you!   and thank you for the advice... i will try it out in my boat this week, and report back
    • leech~~
      Welcome to the forum.   Go try it out in 5 feet of water before you write it off.  The older units need a pretty solid water column to send the echo back and forth.  Good luck.

      So i recently picked up a Zercom Clearwater Classic for 15 bucks off craigslist....     I fired the unit up and the LCD screen works, back light works, and when i plug the transducer in, i can hear the transducer "clickling" (i can see a slight change in the LCD lines when i plug the 'ducer in....so its almost like it recognizes that its there....) but as i'm messing with it i can't get it to see my hand or the floor...  (ie. the LCD lines never move off 2 ft)   I thought it might be the Transducer.... but this 'ducer has an old school RCA jack the reminds me of the old Red/White/Yellow cables from my Nintendo....(see image)  Obviously zercom isn't around anymore so getting a tranducer is brutal.   Marcum bought zercom, but they couldn't help when i reached out to them.  Called Fishlectronics, they didn't have anything....    See the pictures to see the LCD lines that never move and the 1990's tranducer plug.....      Did i waste my 15 bucks?

      Sounds like a worn wire grounding out some where.  One of my trailers I just pulled the whole wire harness off and put on a new one. Not fun but it worked.

      I checked out the truck wiring and it looked good. I towed my duck boat last weekend and the running lights worked. So, it must be my fishing boat trailer. I'll check light bulbs first but may need to rewire since it's seen 20 summers.

      On the main basin... Good fall walleye fishing continues.  Jigs and frozen shiners working well in 28-32'.  Anchor up and jig.  If not finding fish, drift with spinners or troll crankbaits to find active fish.  Fish starting to stack in front Pine Island and other south shore locations.  Some days fish are sliding shallow.  Shiners continue to run up the Rainy River.  On the Rainy River... Shiners are running.  Walleyes are just starting to enter river.  Anglers reporting success both jigging and pulling crankbaits.  Increased sturgeon activity.  Walleye activity is increasing as shiner run continues.     Up at the NW Angle... Fishing is excellent.  Strong numbers of walleyes being caught on mud flats and adjacent to islands. 15 - 25'.  Spinners, crankbaits and jigging all still producing.  Walleyes starting to move towards structure and outside mouths of bays.  Crappie activity strong, guides helpful for crappies.

      It would be nice to have a massive private slough or hunting woods but for the majority of us poor folks it's part of the game. Some days you win and some days the other guy does. Or you just sit home do nothing and play with yur doober!  😕
