Depth Finder lock -- durafafe

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

These are locks that can be used to lock the screws on the sides of your depth finder graph.

Does anyone use them? Like them?

Thanks

Get a Johnny-Ray mount and take the LCR off when your trailering it's better for the electronics in the long run.

FA --

Thanks for the info.

I have heard other people say that about electronics -- better to unhook. I also see most people leave them on ... hard to say.

Thanks

Anyone else???

I always pull mine off and store it in a locked storage compartment. I don't know about you guys, but I can't afford to be to careful.

Yeah -- that is true.

The lock thing seems pretty neat, but might be easier and safer just to unhook and take it inside.

I always take it off and keep it in a storage dept. It takes two seconds. This isnt as much as for transporting, but more so I dont forget and leave it facing up towards the sun and rain.

I alway's shake my head when I see guys trailering long distances i.e. from the lakes to fargo with electronics on. That stuff is expensive and stuff in your boat tends to take a beating on trailers with no real suspension short of leaf springs. I mean each is to their own decisions - however in my opinion it's just plain lazy. But then again if money grows on trees so be it.

Take it off while trailering, it's your safest bet.

All good points. I am afraid that I will leave it someplace, it will fall out of the truck or something like that. Maybe I am just being a little to "what if"

The more I think about it the more I think the locks are a waste of money and that it is just as easy to take it off the boat. I think there would be situations that it would be nice to have it but not most of the time.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
