Quick solo outing with my pup from 6:00-7:30 to beat the rain. 2 for 2 on kings in 105 FOW down 80' with a salmon candy Warrior spoon off the downriggers. Temp was 52 down 80 feet and no current going with the waves or against. Reeling one of the kings while driving into the waves was a challenge, maybe time to justify autopilot..... Missed all the rain and when i came in was the only truck in the lot, weird to see Sandy empty.

Impressive work solo without autopilot! I can’t imagine. How many lines did you have out?

One on each downrigger and a leadcore down the chute. Leadcore sits up on top of my t top so its out of the way when the downriggers go off. It was a bit of a rodeo moving rods around and trying to pull up the down riggers while driving and keeping the line tight, once it gets to the back of the boat and the net comes out all hell brakes loose..... but having a center console makes it easier to manage

Curious to what you guys are using... I fish alone often and went with the Fell Marine product, MOB+. $200, pretty easy to install. I Wear a fob on a watch-like wristband that connects via Bluetooth and kills the motor if you go in the sauce. Customer service is awesome - I had to troubleshoot occasional loss of signal which was solved by adding a little antenna. They pick up the phone on Sunday! Good people.

good on you for the vest too, did you ever find a remote kill switch you liked / was reasonable?



BW..... you know my kill switch is the dog pulling the cord. Easier than teaching her to get another beer from the fridge! But yes I need to get the MOB+ it’s a drop in the bucket for the loss of the boat or life.
