  1. Nice. Were you out yesterday? I didn't see your boat but we went east away from everyone and found our own fish
  2. Awesome. How was the boat traffic yesterday off braddocks? A ton of boats off sandy yesterday
  3. Sorry yes he is correct. The ti can't run the autopilot. I have a simrad go unit also and I like that one too. The only thing I don't like about them is you can't link 2 units together to share sonar
  4. I have only played with live units on display but I own 2 of the ti2`s and I love them. The new active imaging transducer is really nice and is light years ahead of the total scan ducer it replaced
  5. I will buy the 2 6" tracks if you want to sell them separately
  6. I prefer atomik copper. It only comes in 45 pd. I have only bought 32 one time and the first time I used it the current took it and tangled. It was a crazy current that day. I have had that happen with 45 pound too. I think it dive curve charts are a little off
  7. You can't go wrong with a 300-45 pound copper. It will produce most of the year. Minimum 50 pound braid backing on a inline. Other one I would either go with a shorter copper/weighted steel or a five color
  8. Is it brand new? If so you should call the dealer and ask how they rigged it. There are different on board battery chargers that do different things. Most likely you have to charge the batteries
  9. If you're looking for a high end reel that has plenty of room for 400' plus of copper then check out the penn fathom 2 in the 50 size. I have 2 of them and they are flawless out of the box. The Penn squall is a cheaper option and is good too. Both are way better than the okuma cold water high speed wire reels. I also have 2 of those
  10. It was on a bigger bass boat. 20 or 21 ft. I never even asked the guy about the shaft length but he did say he loved everything about the motor
  11. I was given a short demo on a boat with the garmin last fall. It is whisper quiet and very powerful. Garmin and the lowrance are definitely the future of trolling motors and minn kota needs to play catch up in my opinion. The only thing is the shaft length seems too short. We were in a calm bay and the length wasn't a problem but I could see it being too short in a chop
  12. Haha. Did you just get a new life insurance policy
  13. Location.? Do these fit the newer big bodied riggers?
  14. From my experience I say spend some money on a good pair of bibs that will last you.i have had a few pairs of cheaper bibs and they don't last more than 1 season. I had a pair of sims that were great and would have lasted a long time but they came up missing. On black Friday I bought some from west marine and I like them so far. True timber has some out now that are $99 but I wasn't sure about them. Has anyone tried them?
  15. I agree with you. I have a couple goby colored bay rats but have never run them to know how well they work. They probably would work well in the right conditions. when I'm smallmouth fishing I have goby imitations in the water 75% of the time
  16. Lol! Now the dec will be recruiting you to be their top researcher
  17. Rods were sold and removed
  18. I have 2 spinning setups and a planno type box of lures,hooks and sinkers. I will drop it off when I get some time
  19. You want a flexible rod. With so little line out a ml action rod helps a couple different ways. It absorbs the waves better and it helps so the fish can't shake themselves off so easily. Try what you have and see if it works for you.
