  1. Looking for a helix 10 or 12. Any one have one they would like to get rid of.
  2. I’m glad you kept the custom pink shoot rod holder. That boat has caught a lot of fish, she looks good. Congrats.

    Modified Inline Planer Boards

    old trends die hard like big boards. The simplicity of a little inline board is great. We talk about allowing no slack in the line when you hook a fish them we put a realease down a line and allow the fish releasing the line creating a huge amount of slack. I miss my big boards for shallow water fishing but running segmented cores off in lines are much more efficient in my opinion.

    Humminbird info

    Sea-IV thank you. I talked to the previous boat owner and he said that he had a 898 si hummingbird and a HDS 12 Gen three both hooked to the same airman thruhaul transducer. I also reached out to hummingbird. Will I be able to run two sonar at the same time. Or will the interfer with each other and one will need to be on a gps setting.

    Humminbird info

    So I bough a new boat and it had a hummingbird 898 si on the stern of the boat by the riggers. When I bought it the head unit was not included. It is all wired up and I was wondering is I could just plug in a helix 10 or is there an adapter of some sorts. Thanks for responses in advance. Pic is what I got coming from transducer and power.

    For the Love of Copper!

    Loved it. Could you go into depth more on multiple coppers of different lengths on the same side of the boat. I personally run a lot of segmented cores on Erie but have always kept the same segmented cores on the same side. Typical spread would be three 8 colors on the same side, three seven color on the other.

    Do you find them more productive then cores run at same depth?

    If you’re going in morning two dramine night before sleep good and feel good in morning.

    Run the same depth line on same side. If running cores run same cores on same side.

    Trolling speed

    It has less to do with angle. It’s more a less a feel due to experience. Guys I fish with and my self could look at are dipsey rods and tell to the difference between 2 mph and 2.2mph. If you’re catching fish you’re going the right speed. If you’re marking fish start with a gps speed you’re comfortable with and adjust from there. Spin doctors are extremely speed tolerate. Spoons not as much so.

    The bend in you’re dipsey rods.
  13. It’s tough with shallow lines doesn’t give the fish a chance to clear inside lines unless he pulls straight back. Really need to separate boards. Running three boards lines is tough. Need to keep lines out same distance and let fish take board back before you retrieve. With floating baits you can’t move em down slack floats bait. With segmented cores or snap weights when you let out lines while a fish is on everything sinks. I like the inline boards the ease of fishing on set up is easier.
  14. Yankee how do like running the inline boards? I have been completely converted to an inline board guy. Although we mostly fish Erie eyes with segmented cores. I love using them with rod trees on Ontario. I think we loose less fish using inline boards. I’d love to hear you’re opinion on this.
