  1. I still don’t get it but I’m not a musky guy. I’ve had no issues hauling in mag dipseys or offshore mag boards with a 600a. Best of luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Please don’t take this the wrong way but is there a reason I would want to pay more for an old model 600lc than a new model tekota A 600lc? Is there something that’s better about them? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Around here where there’s one grouse there’s usually more. Definitely not uncommon to empty a 3 round tube. I hunt with a Remington model 1100 in 28 ga. I grew up with them and it’s like a part of my body at this point. I just shoot it well. Don’t know your experience level but I definitely prefer the people I hunt with to have over under if there novice hunters. Safer for me and my dog. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Ahh, I was hoping you’d see this. Are you able to confirm the beam angle for those 3 chirp ranges? I will probably call you to order a new transducer anyway but this is for my own knowledge. I don’t understand why chirp would be bad unless you are sacrificing beam angle but according to humminbird I could potentially have more angle than a p66 and chirp should give better detail especially in the higher frequency ranges right?

  5. Ok so I’ve been pulling my hair out trying to figure out exactly what the cone angles of my transducer are. Humminbird site is full of contradictions and talked to their support and they were ZERO help. I run a solix 10 with the stock xm 14 hw msi t transducer. I use this a lot for inland lakes and am happy with it. This year I added a second solix CHO and after reading a lot on the forum I thought I was going to put a p66 on that one for big water trolling. I thought before I spend that money it would be nice to know the angles of my current transducer. It has narrow, wide and full options to chirp and those are the ones I’d like to know the beam angle of. Humminbird support was not sure but thought maybe it was narrow=20deg, full= 42deg and wide=60 deg. Chirp frequencies for these are 180-240, 150-220 and 140-200. If this is actually true, wouldn’t a p66 be a waste of money is I already have a similar or wider cone angle on full and wide modes? Also wouldn’t it be better separation and target resolution with the higher frequencies? Thanks for the help, I’ve made my winter goal to become much more proficient with my electronics and it’s hard when you don’t know what you got.

  6. Well I guess that’s pretty clear. Thanks for posting that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. It’s hard to tell by the wording but they might mean it only works with the cannon optimum and utilizes the one boat network to communicate the info between them. I’m not sure. It would be nice if it showed up on the solix but it wouldn’t be any benefit to me unless I could set my minn Kota cruise control to x4d down speed instead of gps speed. I guess if you had limited dash space you could mount x4d out of the way and just view on solix if it’s possible. On another note, if what I want to do is not possible, does anyone make a Bluetooth throttle control? I mean it seems like the next logical step forward now that the fishhawk is Bluetooth. Itroll Bluetooth would be awesome to set based on down speed and hunt mode. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Just wondering if anybody is running both of these. I have a question about using the x4d with the humminbird one boat network. The fishhawk website gives no info other than it can work with the humminbird one boat network and cannon optimums. If the x4d is paired say to my solix, does it put all the x4d data on the solix screen? And here is my wishful thinking but if it does put that data on the solix can I set min Kota cruise control to target the x4d speed instead of gps speed? That would be game changing for me.

  9. Never thought of hunting grouse with a lab. Always used them as flushers and retrievers. That’s pretty cool. I’ve had vizslas my whole life. Nothing like a versatile hunting dog. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. By far the best plug I’ve ever used. However I don’t remember it being this expensive when I bought it. Supply chain issue I guess, lol. Minn Kota 1865129 MKR-25 Trolling... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07YYXTY99?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. You are definitely right about this site. Thank you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. In case your still looking, Torpedo website has them. They were waiting on a shipment and I asked if they would notify me when they came in. They just did. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I chase land locked stripers when alewife come in to shallow water to spawn earlier in the year. I assume they do something similar on the fingers? If so maybe that time of year would increase chances for better night fishing. Water temps would also be more conducive for predator fish higher in water column or in shallow.

  14. At least while catching bait. Lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I’m not so worried about being at out at night. I actually do a lot of night fishing and have lights and proper safety/nav equipment. Just I’ve more focused on stripers and walleye. Sounds like most people don’t do it on fingers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. So I’ve been trying to get to Cayuga or Owasco for a while now. Can’t ever seem to get a full day to come up fishing. Was thinking about making the drive up one evening but was wondering if it’s worth trying to troll into the dark. Say 11 or 12 o’clock at night. I’ve never tried it. I’m just trying to justify all the driving hours to get some fishing in.Does anybody have any luck trolling at night for trout or salmon?If so how does the pattern change? Move in shallow? Fish higher in column? Maybe not troll at all? Switch to jigging or casting? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Even if it’s just telling me I’d be wasting my time. Thanks all Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. For some reason I have no pm’s. You can text me a 570-507-0925. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. I’ll also take these Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. I will take these Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Here’s one that’s rated to 50 amps. Wire both riggers to one output. Good luck.

  21. You may be right, I’m not sure what you have for riggers but I think cannons have 25 amp breakers on them but I’m sure they operate at a much lower amperage. Maybe somebody on here knows or you could test one with a meter pulling up your heaviest weight. Dual output would probably solve your problem though if you can find one with that high amperage rating on both outputs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. I have not done it on a boat but have done it at work for sensitive electronics that need a solid 12v from a solar charging system. There’s no reason it won’t work. Here’s one that looks water resistant, and can handle the amperage of riggers.

  23. I had similar looking gold dust on my old merc outboard. It was from a worn brass starter gear. Possibly called the pinion? Anyway, it’s a brass on steel interface so the brass is what will eventually wear down. Mine wore to the point the teeth were so worn it would bind on the flywheel and cause starting issues. I’d start there. Was an easy fix. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Well I live in northeast pa. I fish the fingers because it’s 1 1/2 hours away. Most of the places you mentioned are 4-6 hours from me. So your statement is kind of ridiculous. Also, most are warm water fisheries. Kinda limited if you like trout and salmon fishing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. You can still get them from alumacraft. They are just ridiculously expensive. Thought I’d try here in case someone had some they don’t use. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
