  1. Hit a nbk 130 out with a 1\2 oz drop weight on one of the new ninja boards.
  2. I fished from mexico to 4 stacks 70 ft to 180 never moved a rod. Gave up went shallower at 12.30 caught a king 6 browns and a 14.77 monster that beat my sister up. Released after measurement and pics for a fiberglass mount.
  3. Way to low sucking air. The line thats down the side of the transducer should be only thing below the hull.
  4. Just bought a spool at woodys tackle
  5. I have mine tilted up a 1\8.
  6. Always kept up only use keypad for short drops 90% of time im watching balls on my graph anyways. But should be right
  7. Im not sure how much cable is missing was free clutching then boom. So missing anywhere from 5 to 50 ft. So might be just thinking there is 200 ft there and only have 150 or so. When i set waterline i just turn on and off counter is at o
  8. Sounds like its sucking air. There is a line in the middle of the transducer. That should be below hull.
  9. Brand new cable last year. I had the retriever screw loosen and cable went between and cut it like a knife. When i turn them on i put in water turn off and on to set o for autostop. It worked perfectly before.
  10. Have old digi troll 2s broke a cable last season probe and ball on the bottom. But now my counter is off almost 6 ft lower then counter. Was in 28 ft this weekend had set for 20 ft and was dragging bottom. But hit auto up and it stops at waterline.
  11. Already bought the spiderwire it was bonus footage spools.
  12. I run braid always have like the option to leader up and add a torpedo diver Question is my braid is 4 yrs old now ready to change it out. Anyone use the 50 lb spiderwire slick? Figure would work better with fleas. But its not powerpro dont want to have a diver on the bottom if its junk.
  13. Ya during sept thought i would hear something
  14. Had one that came with my boat never could hear anyone thought antenna was bad. Spent 90 on a new one. Still nothing. Bought a new one from west marine. Tells me to add the mms number??? I can hit weather and hear everything fine. Can get 3 or so channels. Unplug antenna then nothing. So antenna works. It has 1ks and think 12 khs tried both still cant hear other boats. Whats am i doing wrong?? Never soldered wire to pin on antenna. Could that be it?
  15. My tr1 does there are filters to slow it down. It runs off a compass ball up in the bow hold when its rough it always tries to correct itself. That makes kicker counter steer.
  16. Yes im tilted back a 16th there hard mounted ducers so i cant push forward. I dont get arces like a garmen or fureno. But really dont care. I can see them dive or rise. And i can see my balls and if im going to fast the balls start coming out of the cone. I can bump down my tr1 and they come back into view.
  17. Like this pic i saw fish near bottom dropped my far side rigger to them while upper was getting followed.
  18. I have the probe use more for speed. If i see fish repeatedly at 70 i put by ball right on that depth off the screen instead of counters.
  19. I do! i run my middle rigger short 10 to 15 ft back usually a flasher to draw them in and either spoons on wings back 30 to 40 ft.
  20. I have a tendency to fish marks over temperature. Am i wrong? I still catch fish but i have a habit of not even really paying attention to my rigger counters until i get bit then i duplicate. But 80% of time i watch my graph and drop to fish off my graph. It seems fish will come up and down a long way to check out my presentation. Some hit some will check out all 3 riggers then leave or follow for a long time.
  21. My problem is cavitation and keeping speed.
  22. Thats fine! Have to try it then when going with them put main in neutral.
  23. Have a 262 penn yan competitor. Also have a t9.9 with tr1 gold love it. But like anyone that fished this year it was bumpy. My 9.9 struggles when it 3 ft and bigger. Its just to hard with cavitation. A couple time heading into wind i ran my main has the 454 in it carb sucks normal conditions i troll way to fast. But 4 ft rollers it holds 2.3 2.4 perfect. Looking for a inexpensive auto pilot for my main. But i might be ok with kicker i turned down the gain it stopped flapping back and forth this fall. But would love the second option. Of the main.
  24. Yes i do. Think its more i have a short shaft. It cavitates then im done. If it was long shaft it could be fine up to 4 ft plus
