  1. Any prop will go on it..motorguide, minn kota,.anything. I can't bring you one now but should find one anywhere even walmart.
  2. I thought I might get a few replies based on the topic. A few thoughts: 1. No t-motor is perfect and no one makes junk. 2. With technology, brushless motor, built in features, effortless steering, etc there is more to break/fail. 3. Garmin customer service is the only reason I woul try year model number one. They are the best I have ever dealt with. 4. The garmin motor will fly..it is fast! 5. No interference and very quite is really, really nice! 6. Really like idea of motorguide, but 4 and 5 above are really, really nice and motorguide is just same old 198
  3. BOAT Wrx in Springfield is a great bunch! They are helping me by letting me use their pedal in stock and swap them out when I get mine from Garmin! They have gained a customer for life!
  4. The foot pedal will not steer. Garmin took care of me, but due to shipping and supply issues it is 6 weeks to get me one. I can't blame them for that. They know they have a problem with the pedal and admitted it. Of the 5 close friends with these all the pedals have failed. This is one of the reasons they are not available. I like some of the features of the motor, but durability and floppy shaft are issues with me. The prop and case scatch really easy. If someone wants one 6 months old for 500 off, I would sale mine.
  5. If anyone has just the foot pedal to a Garmin t-motor...one to barter, borrow, or buy, please let me know. Mine is out and 4 or more weeks to get replaced due to shipping issues with stock. Just trying all options to not switch out motors now. Thanks
  6. Also, I will be upgrading boat graphs when they come in, I have an hds10 and hds7 gen w with all transducers, box, cables etc for a complete network. Also have the complete lowrance radio and sonic hub that links with it. Let me know if you are interested and I can hook you up with a complete setup in excellent working condition. We can tslk price for it all.
  7. Lowrance 7 inch touch elite ti 2 with HDI transducer. Will include a navionics card with graph. Graph has down and 2d imaging as well as a map. Graph in great shape, transducer has a few nicks but works well. All cords and gimbal mount included. Have a 1.5 inch ram mount to add for $25 $450 I have box too and will send you pictures.
  8. I have an old motorguide 36 volt foot control trolling motor that needs a new home. It is well used, but works last time I used it. Be a good spare or for parts. It is the 42 inch shaft, I think an 03 model. It does not include mount. Take $30 bucks or equivalent cranks or jerkbaits. I can save it for you, just message me. I will take it off shelf for pics if needed.
  9. Has the park and the ramp been opened back up? It was closed early by Johnny M. Shame the Corps sells public property for private gain.
  10. We stayed at the wilderness lodge on turtle lake. https://www.thewildernesslodge.com/ Hate to give up secret spot, but she has some openings in a few weeks and needs business due to some covid related cancellations. She has a first class resort with a neat, northwoods cabin feel with all amenities about 40 miles north of Grand Rapids and usually books out at least a year in advance. I highly recommend to anyone especially if you can rent the cabin we do that is right on your own private beach 20 ft away from door for kids to swim in. She has a ramp and dock for boats. Turtle Lake has a 20
  11. Water was 83 degrees and usually about 70 now. Got rain on Wednesday and dropped to 77..fishing was still good and family and I had fun. View from cabin doesn't get much better.
  12. It wasn't too crowded because the wind didn't blow. It is a huge place so it can handle a lot. Just stopped in there on the way to Grand Rapids area. The upper Mississippi River area up there and the northern lakes in the region are my vote for a fun time and a ton of bites.
  13. This exactly right...also consider that you cannot access most of the lake 50 or more percent of the time because of wind and weather during the summer season. I would say you might be able to fish the main lake 40 days a year. I also don't think you can really understand how big this place is until you have been there. From Green Bay to Washington Island it is a 85 mile by 20 mile wide stretch that 80 percent is fishable. It will sound like a lie if I told you numbers, but if you can be there when they spawn AND the wind doesn't blow (very hard to do) it is the most unbe
  14. I have been to both several times. Was up on Milelacs this week. Sturegon Bay gets my vote every time and your wife will love Door County. It can bite you with rough weather but the bite is simply off the chain when they bite.
  15. Wheeler is there at the top now as well as Edwin..close if not ahead, you have to consider Ott Defoe ...he won a little tourney called the Bassmaster Classic in 2019, an MLF at the start of the 2020 year and had numerous high finishes in MLF. If not for missing the last tourney he might have been anglers the year for MLF in 2019.
  16. Both ramps are open and have parking. State park has parking up the hill from the ramp with a grassy bank you can pull up to. Also, parking west of the ramp at the state park..the trail is easy to pull up on just west of the lot.
  17. This shows where the current bank line is based on estimated mapping. Pretty neat: https://usacelittlerock.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapSeries/index.html?appid=4047fa6595644ed1be5ef018e9d390f4
  18. Honestly, the I "think" the problem with Beaver based my involvement with Corps, research, and Engineering background is simply with inflows for the lake being much greater than older hydraulic models used to construct the dam. I don't think there are any true structural problems with any of our dams in the white River system. The amount of data and empirical models used to figure these flows may have been drastically off and not taken into account all the major development of the watershed. It is true there are leaks in some, but these are relatively small and monitored closely fo
  19. You are right, the auxiliary spillway can only be used to save Table Rock Dam. The models for flooding show, that this is really only possible with a break or over topping at Beaver Dam in conjunction with massive, epic flooding event. The Hydraulic Models show that at full flood gates open on Table Rock Dam, that water would be 50 ft over the 65 highway bridge on Taneycomo. Yes, 50 ft over the highway 65 bridge. So, by the time auxiliary spillway was used, most of the infrastructure around Taney is already wiped out. In 2008 and 2011 I happen to set in on several briefings and I believ
  20. Is the ramp accessible and ok to use today at the 924 ish elevation??
  21. I highly suggest a hard reset of the factory settings..run on automatic and for 90 percent of the time you won't have to touch it.
  22. just an FYI from experience and Marine Repair..the MEGA 360 will only run on Gen3 units with MEGA down imaging in 10 inch and larger helix or solid units. It is freaking a deal for seeing what you are throwing at. It is like side imaging on the front with more detail.
  23. This has made all my bulk buying of on sale and "needed" baits seem logical..oh no🤪
