    for me....asking myself the same questions you are. Not enough. If I had a large glass boat that I was putting a through hull on 10 feet up from the transom perhaps I'd think differently.

    I just bought an hds 9 carbon with total scan transducer for 1699 as they are clearing them out. I wanted to go airmar but saw just enough online commentary expressing difficulty to make me decide to go with the total scan and dip a toe i to the airmar at another time.

    Generally no 10' to 2' scenarios, but water level, size and draft depth of your boat and how close you are going to grind yourself along the shore will make this a tougher question to answer. I can generally say there are two areas to consider. 1) to the right of the boat launch inlet (when going out). There are pin bouys there (usually) marking high rocks....how high I'm not sure....I avoid them (haha). Also, I understand Catfish creek (if you use that inlet) is funky and has some sudden shallow stuff right in by the mouth. I don't use that place so I can't say fully. otherwise you are fine. As good practice, if you are going to be right along the beach don't run on plane. You can easily move just a little offshore and run at speed there going to-from Mexico point.

  7. I dont have one but id recommend the 11' 3" model. Assuming they still make it but i love that one. Its great with a spinning reel as an alternate and light as hell to hold. Both reasons is why i love it. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  12. So at the risk of coming across like Lucky13 who loves to post endless amounts of web links and info (lol). here's a pic I found of a coho's mouth and an interesting web page with some fish ID photos http://www.seagrant.wisc.edu/home/Default.aspx?tabid=605&FishID=41
  13. Are you sure about that? I'm not going to proclaim to be an expert but with 5 min of google searching I didn't find anything saying the MMSI #'s weren't used in certain Geographies. I did find info via coast guard / homeland security that seemed to indicate that coverage via the Rescue 21 Distress system appears to have been completed as of October last year and to include the coastal US portion of Lake Ontario in the ninth district called "sector buffalo" . I'm taking it that it includes your direct info via your MMSI #....but admittedly I'm not an expert. https://www.navcen.uscg.gov/?pageName=mtNds https://www.dcms.uscg.mil/Our-Organization/Assistant-Commandant-for-Acquisitions-CG-9/Newsroom/R21_103117/
