  2. Do you have to cut the plug off that battery in the link and rewire it? Or does it come with a plug with 2 wires stocking out to hard wire it to the sounder then plug the batter plug into? Hope that makes sense lol Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  3. Yeah i have been looking at DIY's online tonight on doing it. I should be right. Hopefully. Should be picking up the unit tomorrow.. Next problem is the battery, 12v 7ah seems to be the norm?
  4. Once you mount the transducer.. can you hook it up while it's still wet to make sure it's reading ok before it sets? Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  5. Sorry hard to get a decent pic, must be the camo. [emoji23] There is a valley that runs down the guts that i reckon it would sit ok in. Looks like people use high density foam to make a surround from then fill with silicone. Reckon it would be ok in that valley? I guess I'll have to put something to weight the foam down to mould to the hull shape when drying. The other option is the 4th pic which is to the side of the yak, will it affect the reading if that part of the hull is not always under water? Yes there is swarf in there... No I won't be sticking the vacuum in there [emoji23] Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  6. Cheers.. I was looking for the selleys all clear Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  7. Never seen those before. Got a link? I've only ever seen the small squeeze tubes and the 260g cartridges. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  8. There is to the side of the hatch.. but dunno how I'll get the silicon gun in there tho lol I'll get some pics after work tomorrow. Not getting back out of bed now[emoji16] Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  9. Not yet.. but already said yes to this one. Was looking before inside the yak, not really much of a flat surface to work with when mounting the transponder to the floor. Need to do some more research. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  10. Yup in be mounting mine in the hull. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  11. I can get a real good price on a Lowrance Hook2-4x So i reckon i'm going to go with that.. It should do the job, I don't need anything to fancy.
  12. Sorry for the thread dig, but doing some research on mounting ideas.. How did this set up go? Has the sounder survived with all the water it would have seen?
  13. I'm having withdrawals already.. Always like looking at that one.
  14. I used to get my live beach worms from Brighton tackle or spot on Seaton. The later has now closed down. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Awesome start to the year!
  16. Oh boy could i rant on this one... What a load of crap. Pros will be loving the outcome. That is all i'll say on this matter, they always say, If you can't say anything nice... don't say anything at all.
  17. Some of the Ebay braid is alright.. I still have it on a couple of reels and been on there for over 10yrs and still is better then some of the top priced stuff. Spectra brand from memory, I think they stopped selling it under that name and re branded it tho, Can't remember the new name.
  18. He is always reppin the SH hats... Good lad!
  19. What a crock of chit.... A 5yr could do better editing then that.
  20. When i went out with my mate chasing them on plastics and jigs we used to hit the school up... But you need to know where they are so knowing someone in the know is always a start.
  21. As above.. Freezing them make it a lot less messy to cut them up.

  24. As in a drop net? I see no issues apart from maybe having a hard time getting the crabs out if they get tangled.
  25. Yep the little clips are the way to go.. I use the "Decoy" ones.. Never had a failure. Most tackle store have them. http://www.plat.co.jp/shop/catalog/product_info/language/en/products_id/7779/decoy-round-snap-00.html
