  1. Modified Inline Planer Boards I was reading the Pro-Tips section on the Bloodrun website and came across this article on modifying Church/Offshore walleye boards to be able to pull copper and leadcore. Curious to know if anyone has tried this with any success? How much copper/LC were you able to pull with walleye boards? I have 3 pairs of walleye boards and wouldn't mind trying this on a set if I knew it worked well.

  3. couple on new ones on Ebay right now just FYI. Goodluck!
  4. yeah that makes sense, odds are I still wont see them on my sonar either way and no point in ruining my gear over it. Just put a new motor in one rigger and it wasn't cheap. I use a fishawk TD so I usually have a pretty good idea of where I'm at depth wise. What are the Pros/Cons on torpedos vs sharks?
  5. I've seen those and always wondered about them... seems to me they would cause some significant drag when being pulled backwards by a fish. The back of the cone shape looks about the complete opposite of aerodynamic, hate to lose gear and/or fish because of that.
  6. That's what I was looking for thanks! Now I have to decide if I want to risk upping to 12s or stick with the 10s that I know I can lift.
  7. Pancake vs Shark Weights I know alot of people say you get issues with pancakes and tangles... I have been running 10lb pancakes for two years now without any issues (on a 18ft boat too). I currently cannot see my weights on my sonar and I doubt any style 10lb weight will allow me to see them at salmon speeds. But I was curious how much less blow back I would see by switching to shark style weights. Im running older Cannon Mag 10s so I really can't lift anything over 10, maybe 12lbs max. I guess I want to make sure the difference will be worth the $100+ a set of sharks will cost.

    Yes it has internal GPS, and yes it is down/side scan capable (you would need a LSS structure scan box to utilize imagaing). I ran Navionics premium in it (full size SD card slot). Skimmer transducer is the transom version. None of the HDS units came with SI/DI (unlike HB where you either had it or you didn't), but all were capable of it with the addition of a structure scan setup (comes with its own transducer). Power wire and transducer wire are separate wires with their own connection points. Any more questions let me know!

    Buy my HDS and maybe we can make that happen!
  11. For those of us unfortunate enough to have to fish without a X4/D it will give you an decent idea of whats going on. I hook mine to downrigger and drop it at trolling speed to figure out temp break and blowback. Never used it on copper or dipsies but it could be used there also. Better than fishing blind like I had been doing before I got it.

  13. Well now you guys got my 2nd guessing what I want to do lol. I have a 200 and 300 copper that I had planned to run on planers and a 10 color that I haven't spooled up yet. Debating on spooling up a 7 or 8 color instead for planers and running the 300 down the center. I just want to avoid any issues with tangles and my riggers.
