We occasionally get the opportunity to catch the Radio Ranger doing what it does best, catching fish! This time we have the rare chance to see a birdseye view of the pristine outdoors and wildlife Michigan has to offer to adventurers. We also observe a keen Rc Fisherman catching prized Walleye!
My Radio Ranger is not working, what do I do next? Review the troubleshooting sheet below for the most common problems and simple solutions. Click Here Troubleshooting to Print or View a Full Size Troubleshooting Sheet.
Proper Battery Charging-Transmitter Batteries-Unplugged or Reversed Wires are the most common issue you may have with a Radio Ranger Rc Fishing Boat. First charge the boat battery 5-6 hours (not overnight). The charger should be a little hot and the battery kind of warm. If not then the battery or charger could be defective.
The on/off button on the boat has a thick rubber grommet inside that may become stuck that can cause the boat to turn off itself if the button is assembled too tight. The button can be separated into two pieces to loosen it and then reassembled, do not tighten too tight.
Make sure the transmitter batteries are correctly installed, lights on the controller should be solidly lit. One bad battery in the controller will not be strong enough to get a good signal with the boat, if you have a bad transmitter battery it can effect the range and performance. A good idea is to tape your receiver antenna on the side of the hull, (the silver wire inside the boat) away from the rest f the wires. Never pull the antenna or try to extend it to outside the hull. while addressing reception, (a good signal) if the antenna wire is pulled it may become unsoldered inside the receiver.
The older Radio Ranger, Pre-6/2015 does not have a setting on the transmitter. On the new version Radio Ranger make sure the switch above the red light is on the “REV” position. The switch sets the trigger position, you can pull the trigger in or push the trigger to go forward, (the boats do not have reverse).
If the boat operates but will not go straight most likely the wires on one of the motors are backwards. Looking at the back of the boat from behind the boat the right side propeller should spin clockwise, and the left side should spin counter-clockwise. If a motor spins the wrong way just unplug the wires on that motor and reverse the wires. Keep in mind each propeller has a small letter on it, L-Left side, and R-Right side.
When changing a propeller one of the propeller nuts are left handed threads, usually the right side propeller nut. Turn that nut to the left to loosen it.

When you just can’t locate the fish just have the fish come to you with the Fish Fun Bait Bucket. Delivers a handful of chum with your baited hook. Oh where, oh where are the fish at? Now you can attract all the fish you want. But there is fishing science behind the genius of the Bait Bucket. Chum attracts small bait fish which in turn attracts the big fish! Fill the Bait Bucket with breadcrumbs, corn or even dog food, add your baited hook and guaranteed it will be like shooting fish out of a barrel.
YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR NEW RADIO RANGER RC FISHING BOAT IN TIP-TOP RUNNING CONDITION.
Oiling the propeller shafts occasionally will keep things running smoothly.
Although dripping oil down the shaft is ok too, you may remove the shaft, clean and oil it. The main thing to remember is not to remove the C-ring, putting that back on is difficult and getting it to stay on rarely works.
The propeller assembly consists of 4 main parts. #1 Silicone Washer, #2 Dog Gear, #3 Washer, #4 Nut. A good idea is to apply a small drop of Super Glue or Loc-Tite on the propeller nut to keep it tight at all times.
Each Propeller turns in a different direction. When replacing propellers or the propeller nuts there are two things to remember. #1 is each propeller has a letter stamped on it to identify which side it belongs, L-for Left Side, and R-for Right Side. #2 to keep in mind also it that each of the propeller nuts are different. One of the propeller nuts have left handed threads. For those that are not familiar with left handed threads, instead of spinning to the left to loosen it, spin it to the right. So if one of your propeller nuts seems like it is tightening instead of loosening then just spin the nut the other way. The same goes for tightening the nut, instead of turning the nut to the right to tighten it turn it to the left.

Want to attract fish to your hook? Here’s the sure fire way to lure them with a free fish food buffet!
Fishing is similar to hunting in many ways, right? Hunters dump a bushel of apples or corn in the woods to attract deer to their hunting spot. Eventually the deer find the bait and will go there every day to feed expecting a free meal. Little do they know that on opening day they will succumb to the hunter’s arrows in an epic ambush at the bait pile.
There’s no big difference, for Bluegills, Bass, Catfish, Pike, Carp….fish are always on the prowl for a free meal, and can be baited to a hook too. Anyone that’s ever thrown a hand-full of breadcrumbs from their dock knows this secret to attracting fish. Chumming or baiting for fish was done hundreds of years ago. Hundreds of years ago they didn’t have the sophisticated equipment we have today, but their method was effective for attracting fish. The thinking was if you could catch a fish with a worm or bug on a hook couldn’t you attract a bunch of fish if you threw a bunch of worms or bugs in the water? Of course! The early fishermen would take the rotting corpse of an animal and hang it from a tree limb overhanging the edge of the water. In a short time the flys lay eggs on it, the fly eggs, (maggots) fall off the rotting animal and the fish come to find the source of this free food. Although that would work today there are easier ways and specialized equipment to create a very productive fishing spot.
Hundreds of years ago they didn’t have the sophisticated equipment we have today, but their methods were effective for attracting schools of fish.
Whether freshwater fishing or saltwater fishing there are easy recipes to start chumming. If you’re fortunate enough to have a fishing spot and want to attract big fish to the spot then you are a good candidate to try a bait boat.
This fishing (chumming) technique is known by fishermen throughout the world, the only thing is the methods have changed. Today most sporting goods stores sell small bags of pre-made chum for freshwater fishing and saltwater fishing, and homemade recipes for chum you can make with regular kitchen ingredients are as close as clicking on youtube.
Bait boats just haven’t gained the same popularity here in the USA as they have in the UK, and Europe. The term chumming gives you the idea here in the USA that you are dumping dead fish and fish blood out in the water to attract sharks. In the UK and Europe, Bait Boats are commonly used for attracting big Carp and Pike. The picture below should give you an idea of just how many options there are when it comes to looking to buy one of these remote control bait boats.
