    Here we go! Did the lake turn over by any chance?
  3. I’m in the market for a new fishfinder gps combo. I’m looking to spend no more than $700. I’ve basically narrowed it down to two units unless there’s something out there a lot better but I don’t see it. I’m looking at the Raymarine Dragonfly 7 Pro and the Simrad XSE. I’ve heard good things from both units. The XSE would cost about $200 more than the Dragonfly is it worth the extra cost? They both have the same resolution but the Simrad has a faster GPS system (10Hz vs 5) and also has a better warranty (3 vs 1). The XSE also has side imaging which the Dragonfly doesn’t but I don’t plan on hardly ever using it because I believe a 7” screen is too small to have everything up at once. What I really care about is the traditional 2D sonar which both have chirp and both have down imaging. The Dragonfly has chirp down imaging but the XSE does not. From what I’ve seen online both units have impressive resolution and target separation. I’m also looking for simplicity. The XSE has NMEA 2000 which is nice but I don’t plan on using it. From what I’ve heard the Dragonfly is pretty much plug and play with very little to tweak. I will also note I fish shallow water 60 foot max and 99% of the time under 45 feet. Should I just save my money and go with the Raymarine Dragonfly or pony up and go with the Simrad XSE? Both units come with charts but I’m not sure if I would need to upgrade them afterwards or not for my area which could also be a determining factor. So does anyone have an opinion or experience with either unit? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Mono vs braid or nanofil

    This is all highly debatable. Ask a hundred people what they like and you’ll get a hundred different answers. I think Power Pro is a solid line it’s a strong durable braid where Nanofil is more of a finesse type of line. Nanofil is supposed to have the ultimate sensitivity but it has problems. It has virtually no abrasion resistance if you look at it wrong it will fray so a leader is a must and it has no shock resistance at all oh and did I mention it’s knots slip very easily so you have to use more advanced knots or it will fail. That’s why I like Power Pro cause even if it’s not the best at any one thing it’s not really bad at anything either (besides the line bleeding). I haven’t used either line for jig fishing I’ve used them for casting spoons and I’ve lost a ton of tackle on Nanofil from either the poor shock resistance, the fraying or knot slipping but it is sensitive and it casts far but it’s not worth the problems. I’ve also used other braids and had some issues and keep coming back to PP. As for leaders a lot of people seem to hype up fluorocarbon but I think most of it is overrated garbage. There are a few that are good but it’s not as strong as mono you can take that to the bank and I know plenty of guys that catch a ton of walleye using mono leaders. I’m not sold on the whole invisibility thing of fluorocarbon either heck one of the best leaders out there for invisibility is Maxima Ultragreen which is a mono. Leader length is also debatable one guy will tell you 7’ while the next guy says he only uses a 2’ foot leader and has success but for trolling it’s supposed to be 20’+. In the end it’s whatever works for you that catches fish with as little problems as possible.
