Great report Greg!  Love the pics!

My friends Bernie and Deborah were at Alwaki at the same time - nice black lund and I think they one dog now.

Unfortunately my fall trip got cancelled due to a medical problem, which I am greatly disappointed in.

I'd say anywhere from the last two weeks of July to the first two weeks of August are definitely the best for me. The day temps are warm, night temps are cooler.  Black flies are pretty non-existent and the mosquitos have really died down.  I have generally felt that the fishing is still pretty good as well.  And yea, the ability to swim, play horseshoes, or just sit out in your shorts with a beer and cigar can't be beat.

I just spoke with Rocky's Tackle in Orillia. He's been super helpful with our Ulterra (issues have been user error!) until now.

He told me that he has had a lot of people come in with issues this year with bad brand new interstates!! I don't believe either place actually "Load" testing my deep cycles. I think they did the standard auto battery test.

I described my issues to Rocky's and he is pretty darn sure it's the same deal, weak/bad batteries. I can get a good deal on some MagnaCharge 31 series Deep Cycles, I'm going to go this route for now. Maybe by the time they die, lithium batteries will come down in price hehe! I sure would love to get a pair of 36volts for the same weight as 1 - 31 lead acid!




Very possible to have them test good, I find more on deep cycle than automotive batteries this will happen.  To fail the test you almost have to have an internal issue to the battery for the testers to catch it.  I know our testers at work for automotive they also test the state of health which is lots of time really low but still pass.  I don't know if our work testers would work on deep cycle.  But I do know i'll be charging up my batteries tonight because it is looking like a beautiful week to fish here.

Haha yup!

I spend almost every weekend on Hunter's Lake and I personally love the last week of July and the first week of August.
The temps are ideal for fishing. There's no bugs. On clear calm days, the water is warm for snorkeling, tubing etc.
And the days are longer so the campfire and scotch start later ;-)

Yep...agreed on those dates...and I've tried everything from late-May thru September.

They are Decca batteries, specifically designed for solar. I purchased them from the solar company in Toronto, power of the sun. They are no longer in business. Thanks for returning the gas.

Thanks for the gas Wayne and the battery tips. Had a nice conversation with Barb while you were out. Face timing the grandkids is just not the same...is it?
Better to hug them. Good luck the rest of the season.
If you see my boat at camp, drop by for a beer. Love to show you and Barb what I've done to the place.
