I have a 97' basstracker and the plug that plugs the livewell drain always gets knocked out by the fish. Was wondering if this happens to anybody else? I am thinking about making a bracket to put around it or something to make it harder for the fish to knock it out.

I don't have a Bass Tracker, but I had plugs in the past that had a brass T-shaped screw in the middle of it. You pushed the rubber plug in and then turned the brass T on the end of the plug (clockwise) and it spread out the rubber plug and it became snug in the opening. You had to turn the T in the other direction (counterclockwise) to unscrew it and to be able to pull the plug out.

fisher_hunt, That always happened to me when fishing out of a 14 ft aluminum boat in Wisconsin or Minnesota. Its the walleyes!

Walleyes love practical jokes. The school gets together and sends up a scout to check things out and see what your're doing. I'm sure you've seen a single fish jump near your boat out in the middle of the lake and wondered what that was all about. When that happens keep an eye on your plug. Two or three walleyes will pick up a stick from the bottom of the lake and use it as a battering ram to knock your plug out. Its the truth! I swear.

Da, thanks for the info ass-hole!

Maybe, I wasn't clear enough. My plug also acts as a drainage when the live well gets to full. The plug it self has a plug on the bottom and then a 8 inch piece of tubing that sticks up. When the livewell get to full it drains into the tubing and out of the drainage hole.

So the tubing sticks up, and when fish go to swim by it they knock it out. It hard to explain, but people we own basstrackers should know what I'm talking about. I talked to the basstracker dealer and they said that's the only style of plug they use for that type of livewell. So I was wondering if anybody else had this problem and did they fix it?

I'd say you still have a problem that no one here will be able to help you fix. :roll:


And your second attempt at describing your other problem with your livewell is a killer.

da,
Like I said in my first post, I know how to fix the problem, so I don't need any responses on how to fix it. I was just wondering if anybody else had the same problem and how they fixed it.

The second post did not describe another problem, but the same problem in (what I hoped to be) simplier form.

If you own a basstracker with that kind of livewell then the description should make sense to you.

I don't think you own a basstracker or you just dont' have one with that type of plug. Sorry that you are confused.

Hey fisher_hunt, you're right...most of us will have no answer for you. d a and I have Ranger boats so our livewell/drain plug design is different. I see a lot of Tracker boats on the water so hopefully someone will be able to relate to you their experience with the same problem and how they fixed it. 8)
