Avoided the rush this weekend and went pannie fishing instead. Did really well with the pannies but on the depressing side of things. My bow mounted trolling motor burned up on me. Just seeing if anyone might have one they would would like get rid of. Or any ideas of where i might find a cheap one to get me through the next month or so of fishing. Thanks Duane

It is a minn kota maxxum 54 that i think is about 10 years old. I think it has just burned out on me. Just quit working on me sat night. Had the on board charger plugged in all night friday and the batteries are new so i don't think that is the problem. Not very familiar with trolling motors for i am pretty new to boating. Thanks for the help. I'll have to give either minn kota a call or that place in bloomingtom on monday.

ALSO CHECK TO SEE IF THERE IS A CIRCUIT BREAKER AT THE BATTERY TERMINALS. THEY ARE ABOUT 3/4" X 1" AND HAVE A RESETABLE BUTTON ON THE BOTTOM SIDE OF THEM.

I've checked the fuses, bypassed the circiut breaker and the direction arrow light on top of unit comes on, so i'm getting power that far. I can hear a clicking sound in the foot control pedal when i turn it on, so power is there. From what i can come up with, it seems to be in the lower part of the unit. Shaft or gears or something just have to take it to minn kota on monday. Do i need to take it off the boat or can i take my boat in? Thanks for all the help!

I HAVE ALWAYS TAKEN MINE OFF THE BOAT BUT HAVE SEEN BOATS PARKED BY THE REPAIR SHOP SO YOU MUST BE ABLE TO LEAVE THEM ON THE BOAT?

Take off the cover and hook 12-volts directly to the 2 wires (red & black brush wires) heading down the tube. (even though this is a 24-v motor the lower unit will run on 12-volts direct)

If the lower unit runs, the problem is the main control board. You're looking at $200 kit.

The MK service is now at 121 Power Dr. The industrial park by Kato Light and Midwest Wireless. (kitty corner from Menards)

Thanks katoguy. I tried that and the lower unit still works. Is the main control board located in the foot control?. Mine is the flat foot control with the toe button on it. Thanks for all who have helped me out on trouble shooting this problem. Have a good day and save some eyes for me.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
