Rig Your Fishing Electronics Right with GRAPH POWER

Prior Lake, MN – It’s time to get the boat ready. Spring promises great bites and no angler wants to miss that…

Some anglers may be looking at a recently-purchased boat wondering how best to rig it themselves, while others invest in independent or marine dealership rigging. Still other fishermen may be upgrading electronics for the season and are staring down a maze of wires wondering just where to start.

Whether you plan to fish out of a new boat or a seasoned rig, one of the challenges we all face is making sure today’s fishing electronics are rigged properly, have enough power, and are ready for hassle-free fishing. After all, nobody wants to be out on the water during a hot bite and end up messing around with amateur or problem-prone rigging—we just want our graphs and other electronics to work when we need them.

Along those lines, Connect-Ease is proud to introduce GRAPH POWER, a newly-designed system for powering today’s sophisticated graphs at the console or tiller position and on the bow, whether an angler uses Garmin, Humminbird, Lowrance, Raymarine, or a combination of brands.

Whether you’re going to rig a new boat, re-rig an older boat, or seek out marine professionals to help you switch out electronics for the season, Connect-Ease products promise problem-free operation of today’s sophisticated electronics.

We like to say: “More time fishing, less time rigging.”

Connect-Ease Founder, Cal Munkvold, remarks: “I’ve been an outdoorsman and big-water angler my entire life, so I knew there had to be a better way to rig electronics for everyone from the weekend warrior to the serious tournament angler. So we sat down and designed the trouble-free solution we would want to buy and install. The result became Connect-Ease, products that allow easy, hassle-free rigging and powering of trolling motors, as well as GRAPH POWER for today’s advanced fish-finders.”
