    Introduction

    welcome aboard. you've come to the rite place. some of the best fishermen and woman in the world are on this site and more than willing to help.
  3. invest in a couple of manual down riggers and run at least 2 #1 dipsys per side. that will give you 6 lines out. and a 16 footer fishes 2 people really well. just my 2 cents.

    I use to fish exclusively for bass and that fish is better than 6 lbs for sure. I would bet 7 to 8.5 lbs. it a hog for sure. Nice fish. Weigh him next time you catch him. Lol. I’d bet you have a scale for your next trip. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    3rd down rigger????

    Thanks for the input. My boat is a 2452 bayliner classic with a hard top. It’s 8 and 1/2 feet wide. I have tracks down both sides that I run my riggers and my rod holders for my dipsy divers on. My riggers have extendable booms to 54 inches. I have another set of riggers that have 48 inch booms but I’m not sure I need 3 or 4 riggers? Maybe I’ll try it and if I don’t like it I’ll pull them back off. It would be nice in high traffic areas but I usually avoid those areas anyway. Do you think 2 straight out the back and 2 at 90 degrees would be far enough apart? They would only be 52 inches from each other. If I run 3, I could run one off the corner at 45 degrees and my separation would be 8 feet. But it would be rite in my prop wash about 3 feet behind my prop???

    X4d vs XD fish hawk

    I would think the depth of your lure would be worth the extra coin. mine will have blue tooth for sure. for 100.00 ? for sure it will.
  15. Sounds to me like you have a solid plan now you just need to execute it. The biggest thing is to keep him engaged, try to make everything fun for him and don’t be too hard on yourself brother, it will all work out. [emoji4][emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
