    Olcott Report -Sunday

    fish thief sure strike snubbers are the way to go. much better construction and less blow back than other brands

    Cannon Ratcheting Rod Holders

    sorry, i am confused as to the problem you are having. are you saying you have to do something extra to stand yours up? if so, there is a problem with yours.

    Cannon Ratcheting Rod Holders

    other than just grabbing and standing them up what force do you have to do to get them there?
  6. i am in wilson this weekend. are you anywhere near there to arrange pick up?

    new video for website

    my nephew will be publishing lots of videos of our fishing trip last weekend but he cut this commercial for me to start

    the top of the arc is the depth of the fish, assuming is is directly under the transducer

    Fly storage idea

    you can achieve the same effect by rolling the fly in a post it sticky sheet

    you are a 100% correct when you say reproducing something successful is the most important part of fishing. but the more info you have will help your success rate. it is highly unlikely, as you state, that your rigger will ever show higher on your graph than it is down in real depth, you can choose to ignore the facts but it doesnt mean that they arent real and useful tools in setting your program. you say you want to put your gear just above the fish and again you couldnt be more accurate. but the formula i gave will help you understand exactly how it works and can help you get in the right spot

    in this example your rigger depth is C (70ft).. the distance away from tranducer with blow back is B (30ft). that would make the distance from transducer to weight A ( roughly 76-77 ft ) and that is how "deep" it would appear on your graph. the deeper C is and further back B is the more exaggerated A will be. and yes i know the diagram is not drawn to scale.

    a squared = b squared + c squared. look at a pic of the pythagorean theorum. it doesnt have to be close at all. the deeper the ball and more blow black then the "deeper" it will appear on your graph. yest i was in 200 foot of water with a rigger down 150ft. it looked like it was dragging bottom on graph. in reality it was probably 60foot above the bottom. sonar measures DISTANCE from transducer, not DEPTH. the only time the two are the same is when the object is directly under the transducer. this is why fish "arc" on sonar as it starts at a greater distance, then under it, then moves away in the cone. if you look at the diagram, 'A' represents the distance that the transducer is seeing your weight with the top tip of the triangle being the transducer and the far right corner of the triangle being the weight. if you were to to transpose that line parallel to 'C' it would be much longer, which is why it appears deeper than it actually is

    it measures water pressure that is sent to the head unit by way of the transducer.. on any given day my x4d probe can be down 80ft as per rigger counter yet read down 100 ft on the fish finder, but yet the actual depth probe could be 70ft

    your weight is not at the same depth as your sonar shows it. it appears deeper on screen than it actually is because of the hypotenuse of right angles
