    High Pucker Factor Morning on the Upper End

    It didn't short to ground or overload the circuit then, it simply got hot because of a poor connection at the plug splice. Eventually it would have melted into a short and tripped the breaker. Hopefully before anything caught on fire.

    nice scud plastics

    saw this on another fishing page I am on in PA, they use it to imitate scuds, bet it might work on taney

    Photos needed?

    I do quite a bit of photography. I'm not sure what you need, but if I have something, you would be welcome to use it.
  7. Took the wife for a short trip to the White. Caught 3 browns and a bunch of rainbows. Caught about half on a beadhead woolly bugger drifting in the boat and the other half wading with Y2K/ruby midge combo. Fun part of drifting in the boat is that you see most of the fish coming after the fly and see them eat it. Wife caught a decent brown and got some good jumps out of him. She saw a really big brown following her fly but it turned away at the last minute. Lots of fun watching them follow the fly. Some eat.... some don't. Sorry for the blood, but she was hooked on the top of the mouth and swam away very strong. Here is one that ate...

    High Pucker Factor Morning on the Upper End

    When i upgraded to a 24v system i was told and did plenty of research saying my factory wiring would be fine. After long troll i smelled something burning, so i opened up the back hatch and the factory wiring burned through one of the plastic handles on the battery. So i got the pleasure of pulling 6 guage wire through the whole boat, it was a pain in the butt, but now i have no worries
  9. I put a disconnect switch in the feed circuit on my new Ulterra just in case I forget to turn it off at the motor base and then somehow accidentally hit the deploy button on the fish locators, foot control, or remote. Deploying the thing at the wrong place and time could be catastrophic.

    Found a Walleye

    Sounds like a great day even if hot. Congrats on a variety of fish. That sucker looks like it might be a black redhorse. That crappie with the black mark is really cool. I heard of them being called blacknose crappie. My buddy has a pond that he stocked with crappie and about half were that strain. Congrats!

    You Da Man ! That’s hard core fishing ( and driving too)

    Well my trip is over... Had to leave yesterday morning as we had a little cousin from New York staying with us and his mom needed him back home for some family stuff. I ended up driving to Columbus Ohio and back today and just got home a bit ago lol. No more driving for me for a while. I left @Haris122 hanging which I'm sorry about buddy, but we'll get hooked up for sure. Can always use more buddy's to night fish with! Oh and @grizwilson did you make it down? How'd you do? Overall was a great trip. I'm beat though as usual when we do the family trip... Already can't wait to get back down!
  13. The battery cutoff switch does not include the troll motor. It should but it does not. I guess they assume I will unplug the motor when dock or put it on the trailer. There are fuses on the troll motor batteries. They did not trip.

    Sounds like the bite was good out of the boat as well. Glad you got into them. Wish you could of gotten that brown in. 2lb is tough to land those bigguns on.
  15. Was there a circuit breaker on the system?
  16. I've got a Perko cutoff switch installed by my batteries. I flip it off when I roll the boat in the garage and hook up the charger, flip it on when I roll out to go fishing.

    Gotcha, i would much rather get rid of that plug, im constantly worried about it bouncing loose, may break out the solder and do it right.

    They are covering their six. If a circuit shorts out in their TM control and burns down your house they don't wanna be held liable. By putting that in their instructions even if it is a result of shoddy engineering their butt is covered.

    Found a Walleye

    Dude that is a good one ! What a treasure, river walleye, not many have done that in Missouri, even less in a kayak. Be proud !

    The installation of the plug itself constitutes 3 "splices (places where corrosion can set in, and/or contact area can loosen from the ongoing hot/cold cycle). No such thing as being too OCD about electrical circuits.

    MY motor specifically states to unplug while charging, not really sure why but i do it

    Found a Walleye

    I got out on the river this weekend. I was have a pretty average day. Caught average size smallmouths, average size goggle eyes, a crappie with a black mark on its head and half of its tail missing, I have only caught about 10 crappies total ever, and a sucker. But I came upon a section with a nice current and a still pool on the other side of it. On the second cast it hit. I had to fight it back through the current while trying not to lose it. A 21 inch walleye makes it a "better day" and keeps my streak alive. I couldn't use anything that ran too deep because I was pulling up to much off the bottom. I was trying a bunch of different lures and ended up keeping a Rebel grasshopper and bumble bee on one rod. I caught a lot of fish with them. The picture of the small smallmouth is to show where I fished so on one needs to ask. The river was low, had to drag a little and it was hot but it was a good day on the river . Released them all....And has any of you kayakers used or seen one of the Bending Branches paddle with the hook retrieval system that’s built into the blade. I have stuck my paddle down in the river plenty of times trying to knock a lure off something. I wonder if this would work and should I try to notch mine.
  23. RPS, glad you are OK! They should make it right. Wrench - I don’t understand the need for a splice; I wired mine with a new plug and screwed connections. That motor pulls just shy of 60A and a standard 50A breaker will not work - had to order mine from MK. Anyway, I always unplug mine when charging or not in use and that’s why I went with a new plug. I’m concerned about spikes with the electronics in them - maybe I’m paranoid, but likely just another symptom of my OCD. Mike
  24. Yep, glad it didn't get any worst but liphunter's comment caused me to think of a bunch of lawyer jokes. You probably aren't in the mood for any right now.😏

    This! In all actuality, on a TM like that where you have no intention on removing it regularly, those plugs are nothing but bad news. Better to hardwire the motor in and eliminate 2 splices.

    I caught a bat on a pop r at scout camp. Goose, gator, some saltwater bird turtles snakes and my nephew caught a muskrat in Colorado on a fly rod. That got ugly.
