    I used it twice on a few trips and also I have the box and everything that comes with it. Asking 700 for the electric reel and I'm just giving away a trevala shimano heavy action rod with it. Or best offer. I'll take 550.

    Just curious what length, tip speed, and power rod you prefer when you are drifting. Also, those of you that like to you use the bait clicker when you drift? Do you just adjust the clicker drag down fairly tight and let that take the brunt of an initial run, and then engage your...
  4. Plugs and Plug Building
    I was wondering what a good speed for spinning after applying epoxy(etex). I'm getting ready to build a spinner right now and have a few gear motors I can use. The one I'm thinking of using spins at around 2 or 3 rpm and is from the feed auger of my pellet stove. I have a few of these so they...

    Is it the speed of the jig related to the bottom, or the speed of the jig in relation to the current thats important? For instance, (using 1.5mph as the optimum speed for the sake of argument) traveling with the current do you need to keep 1.5mph ahead of the current speed or just almost drift...

    Good Morning, Does anyone have this reel and do you see any reason to purchase the 2 speed for bottom fishing. I have heard nothing but good things about them and looking for one for my wife as it is small and light with plenty of drag Dave

  8. The Striper Forum
    I'm looking to get a Humminbird Model 565 for striper fishing this spring but I'm confused on whether I should get one with the speed and temp, or if the temp is good enough. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    I have been looking at some of the postings about trolling stripers. I live in RI and fish just off Narragansett Bay and the SakonnetRiver. In the past I have been very unsuccessful with lead core and tube & worm. It seems to me that proximity to the bottom is critical. I am told that if the...

    I do a lot of trolling for Stripers and there is always talk of trolling speed, genereally slower the better. But say you're trying to troll at 2 knots, is that Speed Over Ground or versus the current? Thanks and good luck on the cows! thumbsup.gif

  12. Boat repair issues & Shop Maintenance
    Since I installed the fishfinder on my boat, I seem to get a very choppy reading when at any speed above trolling speed or in rough water. When I installed the transom mount trasducer, I followed the template provided for placement, and have since dropped the transducer even lower thinking that...
