    Fish hawk

    Sorry jay, have to disagree.. I have had numerous days this season when my hawk was reading 2.5, but my divers and cables said way slower. Bump it up to 3.4-3.7 on FH and get bit. This season has been very weird, a lot of days needed to have 3.4-3-7 to get bit on numerous Boats. Most didn’t believe it until they tried it.... Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Fish hawk x4 issue

    Yes mine is the older model x4d without surface speed. I really don’t care what my surface speed is on the FH. I use my GPS speed for surface speed and FH for speed under the water. I am running my probe all the time, from 10-800’. Capt Rich. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Fish hawk x4 issue

    The early x4d units did not have surface speed, my unit does not have surface speed, and it is the x4d. There is not a space for the surface speed on the head unit. Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Joe You don’t need line counters for lead cores, especially the longer cores. For your short cores, any L-ML Downrigger rod will work. For your longer cores look at M rigger rods, or leadcore rods, Daiwa Great Lakes rods have a very nice leadcore rod that wouldnwork perfect!! For the longer core, do yourself a favor and find a high speed reel, Daiwa Seagate 50, Sealine 50, or Saltist 40,50 will fit the bill perfectly. I know Okuma has reels, but not sure which models will work. Good Luck Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Fish hawk

    There is a problem with that statement.... trust your temp on your electronics, but not necessarily the speed. I can give you numerous examples of where my FH was reading 2.4-2.6 and my dipseys and cables were almost straight down, and or not cracked over to show that speed. I would keep bumping up the speed until I got the angle and the bend I was looking for, reading was 3.4-3.7 on FH and bingo, rods started firing. I was not the only one seeing the same thing. You have to read more than just your electronics, you need to be able to see what the lake and the fish are telling you!!! Your electronics will give you a starting point, but read what all of the other aspects are telling you!!! Lately with these crazy currents i have been over 3.0 on the FH more than I have been under. If you are not learning something new every time you are out, then you are not being very observant. Good luck. Capt Rich. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  9. Observer found, Thank you for all of the responses!! Capt Rich. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. My team is looking for an observer for the ATOMMIK Invitational, August 10 to fish with the team for big fish Friday, Capts meeting that night, and for the Invitational Saturday. Sunday is the blow off day, so would also have to keep Sunday open just Incase. Please let me know if you are interested, and for more info, you will be on a 29’ boat or bigger. This is a great learning experience, you will see some new techniques, and possibly some secrets!! Thank You!! Capt Rich Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
