    Get up to $75 with Navionics

    I meant to say that the lake contours are not visible out from Oak Orchard river mouth in the lake. I was going to upgrade my GPS plotter unit but I haven't found one that is as easy to operate as my old Globalmap. I wasn't impressed with the waypoint process on the new Lowrance units but I can't find a Simrad unit to test. I know those two units will connect to my Simrad autopilot. I'm not sure how to connect the other brands..

    i have a Lowrance Globalmap 7500. My current card does show contours about 6 miles to the east of Oak Orchard but changes to just a generic style at the river mouth area.

    Get up to $75 with Navionics

    I have a 10 yr old Hot Maps card. Is there any improvements in the newer cards that would be noticeable. Or do the new cards need a new model plotter. My current card does not go west to Oak Orchard so I am looking for a better one.
  4. Most states have the same problem as NY. The metro areas control the election because they need the tax revenue from the rural areas of the state. Here in PA most of the state is red except for the cities. Will it ever change? Never. Living in a rural area you will always be a second class citizen. The presidential election in 2016 was a fluke in that a republican won in PA. I don't think that will ever happen again.
  5. Braid line didn't suit my purpose. But it wouldn't break like mono if reeling in fast and not setting the drag light enough. I never used it so i can't say if mono would work.
  6. I have two childs life vests. One is for 30 to 50 lbs and one for 40 to 90 lbs. Both in very good, hardly used condition. Free for the cost of shipping. Grand kids grew up.
  7. I have a never used Tanacom 750 electric reel. It is 12 volt DC. I bought it because my son injured his shoulder but he decided to just not reel in any fish last year. Now I no longer need it. It cost me $399.00 but I will sell it for $300.00 plus shipping. I had to change it from best offer at the request of another member. High Bidder

    Could use some advice on new seats

    I installed a Tempress Elite helm seat in my Striper. I could only install one seat because of the width. You have to be sure it doesn't interfere with the shifter. I have to rotate slightly left to get reverse. I had to keep the narrow original copilot seat. It was a great improvement over the stock seat.

    Fish hawk

    At the Oak last weekend if you were trolling west(into the waves) you really had to give it speed. Trolling east we could barely get down to 2.6 MPH without bags. Your Fish Hawk was probably right. There was a lot of debris in the water but it only affected my Fish Hawk once and I had to pull it and clean the wheel.

    Thru hull transducer

    Installed a thru hull two years ago. Really don't notice any difference between the transom mounted and thru hull when trolling. I have a selector switch that I can use either one. The only diference is when under power I don't lose the bottom with the thru hull where as sometimes I did with the transom mounted.

    Touch screen GPS

    I'm considering getting a new GPS chartplotter but was a little concerned about a touchscreen type. I hate when someone puts a fishy fingerprint on my screen now. Simrad units connect to my Autopilot easiest. I built a adapter cable for my present Lowrance Globalmap unit. Other brands won't connect to my Simnet system. The expensive units seem to be both touchscreen and dial or button control but the less expensive units are touchscreen only. Just was wondering if I'm too concerned about a slimey screen.

    Lowrance gen 3 or Simrad nss9 evo2

    I also was considering upgrading my Globalmap unit to a Simrad since it would easily connect to my Simnet system for my autopilot. Is the built in GPS effective under a hardtop or would I have to install a puck like I do now with my Lowrance Globalmap unit? I would be using the unit only as a chartplotter.

    Bears eating my cameras

    I just hope the wardens don't think using cameras is "baiting". Although I did think of putting all my old cameras around my stand. I'm sure its the human scent because I had a bear walk by and as soon as it caught my scent it returned to the base of my ladder and looked up at me.

    Bears eating my cameras

    Bears eating my cameras This past year I've had 3 cameras chewed or knocked off the tree by bears, some numerous times. I've gotten some good pics of their teeth, ears and noses. At first I thought they prefered the Cuddiback units but lately they moved on to the other brands. I don't know if its the smell of plastic that attracts them or the sound. I hope some of them stick around for archery bear season. By rifle season the food selection changes and they move out. This is in north central PA.

    oil level in IO engine

    If I change the drain I would no longer have a dipstick tube and dipstick. I couldn't check the oil level. I would have to splice a drain valve into the dipstick tube.
