  1. Do you want to be able to take it off and put it back on easily? If not, you could remove the 2 screw clamps and pads. That would probably give you another 1/2" to 3/4". You would need to bolt in on then though. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I have a Marcum LX5, lightly used. New battery. $300. Can meet near Sodus or Rochester. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. I kind of feel your pain. I have gone from readings like these, to my unit refusing to find bottom. There is another firmware update out that I am anxious to try. I am a pretty technical guy, but sometimes find my Helix frustrating. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. NMEA2000 power is isolated from unit power. You will need to power the head unit separately. I'm surprised that you feel you need the separate antenna, but you should be able to configure which GPS antenna and heading sensor to use, assuming your system allows that. SIMNET is essentially NMEA2000, so all devices should talk to each other. Be sure to follow a true trunk line/ drop line config with tees and terminators. Only one power tap for the network.

  5. Well, I don't agree. But to each his own. Our largest fish typically come on wire divers, and have had no problem landing 30 pound salmon on 600LCs. I run only Tekota LCs, and use 600s for riggers and wire divers / slide divers, and 700s and 800s for junk lines. Never had an issue with torque or drag. Unless you are talking about the ones that just came out this month. I have no experience with them. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. 600s hold 1000' no issue. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. So they are lower speed than Super Slims? Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Spoon color is important. Spoon size, weight, the targeted fish, current, water depth, etc. are just as important. The last couple years we have been monitoring boat speed and presentation and what is producing, then trying to duplicate. Slow speeds might mean super slims. Higher speeds might mean NK Mags. Keep in mind that your wires and junk rods should help you determine what type of spoon to run. As far as colors, black, green, black & green get a lot of run time. Glow spoons run early. Blues and purples get run time in bright sun as the morning moves on. When flasher flies get bit on outside turns, we switch to heavier, bigger spoons and speed up. Everything in your spread should match what is producing. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. Wow. Those look exactly like the rods I bought 30+ years ago. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  10. Which one is which? Fan cooled? Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. Meh. I was a bit underwhelmed with my experience. I put one on my Wellcraft back a few years ago. It was a hard top, not an arch. It had a bit of a low spot. Fit and finish to me was ok for the price. I never really loved the look of it, but it was very functional. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. We net every fish head first off the stern... What TV show said you couldn't? Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Do you reply to PM's? Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. Always above, or your line will get into the paddle wheel. I actually hook my Scotty pinch pad release to the shaft of the black release that is hooked to the probe. I prefer the pinch pad style, and the Scotty ones last forever. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  15. Yes, but the handle is harder to turn, so... Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
