  1. The on line system is up and working, don't forget to print it off and carry with you, only 3 1/2 weeks until old cards expire.
  2. I kind of wonder when society is crying about how they can't afford this or that but say go with the biggest you can afford. I have visions of 20 inch monitors, but wait my boat is now too small. Unless you spend an inordinate amount of time on the water and it's your income like charters, I don't think the average Joe "needs" a large fish finder.
  3. Nice pics, hopefully the young lad is hooked on this sport.
  4. You do some nice work and pretty nice colour schemes.
  5. That small load tester will also show the voltage as soon as you connect it.
  6. Load tester. I've had batteries that when checked with a voltmeter showed between 12.3-12.5 volts, add a small light and they dropped to less than 8. That's called a surface charge.
  7. If you just want to test battery voltage then this will do. https://www.princessauto.com/en/digital-multimeter/product/PA0008347676 If you want a battery load tester, I bought one 2 weeks ago they were 1/2 price at PA, it works from small to large and different batteries and does all except Lithium Ion. https://www.princessauto.com/en/12v-digital-battery-analyzer/product/PA0009067968
  8. Look here. https://www.wholesalemarine.com/trailer-disc-brakes/
  9. My jack stands are about 10x10 at the base and unless you are doing gymnastics or something with your partner we don't need to know about, no, they have never moved.
  10. Some call them a floor jack too, https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=trolley+jack
  11. I must have gone to the same school of blocking up the trailer. Makes it easy.
  12. Well you can't keep them in the box of the truck while in the hotel, so, take them inside.
  13. Storing on concrete is an old wives tale, are you an old wife?
  14. Yes, just high enough to get the tires off the floor too, no flat spotting. It's a good time to check/regrease the wheel bearings, no point in waiting until spring, then it becomes a mad rush. All the oil changes done, drain the tank and fuel lines, change spark plugs. Check/tighten all the nuts and bolts on the trailer, lights, wiring. Any rope tie downs or mooring lines that look rotten, change then out before they fall apart when you need them. Check wiring and connectors in the boat, downrigger plugs, etc.
  15. Yes, same as using tugboats pulling nylon nets for harvesting lake trout and white fish, that was not part of the equation when they were subsistant harvesting over the long period. Heck nylon wasn't even invented until 1939. Same goes for using spotlights for night hunting.
  16. Seems kind of an oxymoron that if there were no pacific salmon other than early seeding of some chinook and coho failed miserably. Pinks were not really all that successful until around mid 1950's, so how can bow hunting for salmon other than Atlantics be recognized as something FN's did that far back. Other than Atlantics, they were not there.
  17. Hahahaha, back to the golf course and got paid even when loosing.
  18. Just a disaster waiting to happen.
  19. Key off, yes you can. Most of the ATV batteries have 2 rates, something like 10 amps for 1 hour or 2 amps for 5-6 hours. I like the slow method. Don't overcharge AGM batteries, they don't like it.
  20. Fisherman


    That should make their hometown newspaper.
  21. I would drain that gas and take it to a recycle place, then get a bit of new gas and run it in a big garbage can or ear muffs just to see if it will still start.
