  1. A couple of our better fish. 32 lb and 17 lb. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  2. Tuna Tom advised not to grease mine. I clean those surfaces with rubbing alcohol. Many youtube videos on reels. Also google "Alan Tani". He has many great tutorials. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  3. The counter needs to be shimmed. Pull counter off. Pull long gear off. Cut a shim out of clear plastic packaging material. Put back together. Or let Tuna Tom do it. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  4. We have the net man brush them off with the "S" type metal fish handling tool. The slap technique cost me a mag dipsy, flasher, and fly rig.
  5. Use a double surgeons knot to make a loop on the fly leader. Just put the loop through the flasher swivel and pass the fly through it and pull tight. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  6. Tite-lok are about the least expensive rod holder you can trust a dipsy to. Nothing plastic. Drag should barely hold dipsy. I add a #16 rubber band from reel to wire so drag can be a little looser. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks. Will try that. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  8. How to you prevent the board flipping near the boat? I have a lot of trouble with that.Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

  10. Use an ohmmeter with rigger plugged in and switch in neutral position. Check for continuity between battery negative post and the cable end at the ball. Use a long jumper wire from battery to area near rigger for testing. An open means check screw/cable contact.
  11. Best return on 200khz for thermocline.
  12. Curious why a snubber would cause lost fish? I haven't fished dipsys w/o one in a very long time so I have nothing to compare too.
  13. Have an HDS 5 and HDS 7 touch, both gen 2, networked on my boat. Use the 5 for sonar and 7 for GPS. The touch was well worth the extra money. Have the 83/200 hooked to 5 and structure scan hooked to 7. View either one on the 5.
  14. Try 40-80' for a mix of browns and steel. We had a break off on a king there 2 weeks ago as well.
  15. Fished point breeze this weekend. Lots of steel and a few salmon. Fish are way out 8-9 miles .
