    This depends on what you are doing for line and how you fish. If you don't care about the fleas and run 20# or less as your main, get the 30's. If you're running 30# and run deep and fish for kings it probably won't hold enough.
  2. State of the Lake meetings

    Has the DEC ever considered putting at least one of the meetings on a weekend to encourage out of state participation?
  3. Cannon rigger difference??

    What did you tie in for the tracking feature? Did you tie into a hummingbird fish finder or do you have their separate transducer? I'm running a lowrance at the moment so I can't tie into that unfortunately.
  4. Cannon rigger difference??

    That is the primary reason I bought them. Plus the fact that I can reduce the down speed. I didn't like the idea of sending flasher rigs down @ 250fps. With the Digitroll I can reduce to half or whatever I want. This year I want to start playing with the bottom track and and jigging feature.

    Just made it in under the wire I guess.
  6. you don't need to fish temp this time of year. Fish where your gear will let you fish. there are fish on the beach and out to 100 + fish still not wanting to leave temp (wherever it is).

    since there isn't a lot to them and the gears aren't binding I'm gonna guess the motor is your issue.
  8. I've always had a hard time as soon as they are forced out of temperature. Im guessing the heavy west winds did that.
  9. greetings rfom Maui, Hawaii

    Info on that kayak guy please. Pics too so I can drool. GT's are beasts!
  10. By contrast, I almost always go alone. But I understand....its a ball buster by yourself.
  11. flip it. A real pain in the butt, but a good idea.
  12. Dipsy's vs Slide Divers

    As an engineer I can tell you its an angle thing based on design. Exactly where it pulls from when set relative to everything else results in a shallower dive angle. There could be a diameter difference too buy honestly I never measured them side by side.
  13. Problem is that joint will be right in the main area of use for when you set it and the fish takes off. If it were me I'd be more likely to toss the 300 and go with 700 or if nervous add some powerpro or even mono backing or just replace the whole thing. I've never had a fish take me to 700 so I'd probably just roll with the 700 until I had to cut more off, then replace
  14. Boat ramp manners

    Wow. While this isn't manners it does clog up a ramp and is entertaining to share. I was with a buddy on round valley reservoir in NJ when 2 younger guys launched a 16ft boat with usual vinyl covered wood floor & pedestal seats. I happened to be standing there while my buddy was parking the truck for our boat. I look over and caught a glimpse in this guys boat of water just poking into the bottom of a pedestal seat mount that didn't have a seat in it. Yelled at the one guy to put the bilge on and the other guy (who was still there) to back the trailer back in immediately. He said why and just yelled shut up and do it your sinking. Managed to get it back on the trailer enough to stop it from sinking lol. And the problem was.....new to them boat, first launch and they put the boat plug in the live well intake instead of the drain hole. Coincidentally my father in law has two giant stick on letters on his transom next to his livewell intake on his Lund NO. I laughed to myself when I first saw it....didn't need to ask why it was there.
  15. Boat ramp manners

    i put time and effort into practicing and setting up my trailer, and procedure to put in / pull out lightning fast by myself or with someone. That and parking so you don't get blocked and you especially don't block anyone. If busy, I do my little things away from the dock. How is all that so hard for people. Truthfully I avoid busy launches even if I'm quick.
