Sorry the fishing was tough. It stinks to take a trip and have it turn out that way. But it still beats working  (giggle)

Boating Forum / Added This To The Talon
« on: September 02, 2020, 04:07:10 PM »
I added this to the top of the Talon last week!

I wanted to try to eliminate my rear pole light, if possible, since it gets in the way when someone is fishing from my rear deck at night. And, it's just one more piece of hardware I need to have in my boat.

Now I won't have to worry about that.

Oh, and this thing is super bright. It makes the original pole light look like a kid's toy flashlight operating on old AAA batteries  (giggle)

And in case anyone is wondering, yes, it does stick up above the outboard, so it can be seen from any angle.

Just placed my order for the Talon anchor light.

@Joe P I don't blame you for not wanting to drill holes in your hull!  (giggle)

I just used the LED strips for the bow and they work perfectly, with no drilling at all.  :nod:

Your going to love it. now you need a anchor light for it so you don't have to use the stick in pole light anymore. I have the RMP one, not cheap but i got a black friday deal on mine!

@Joe P I got in touch with the owner of Tricked Out Marine with some questions about his anchor light for the Talon. Looks like I will be buying his product and installing it. No more pole light for me!

Actually, now that I looked again, the light that is on mine isn't an anchor light. Looks like I need to buy one!

Boating Forum / How to Fix a Squeaky or Squealy Minn Kota Talon
« on: August 16, 2020, 01:38:20 PM »
I bought a new Minn Kota Talon for my boat two weeks ago.

It arrived and I installed it myself last a day later. I was super excited to finally have one and couldn't wait to try it out.

I hit the water Monday evening and moved out away from the shoreline and hit the button on the remote to deploy it.

Down it went, but then I heard a squeaking noise that I wasn't expecting.  :facepalm:

It worked perfectly, but for a half second or so, it squeaked.

During the next few days I did tons of research to see what might be causing it. Ultimately, Minn Kota told me to take it to a local service center to have it looked at.

I was unwilling to do that unless I absolutely had to, since I had just bought it and was counting on having it to use for an upcoming tourney.

So, I decided to fix it myself. And now it works flawlessly

And here's what I did to fix my squeaky Talon.

Hard to believe you were able to find a lake with no grass! And yes, all those lilies will be dynamite next Spring!
