    electronics setup

    need to check to see if the helix 7 can completely interface with the Ulterra - I have a 10 and a 9 which gives me all the possible features of the Ulterra with Ipilot link.

    Do you have any screen shots....

    I went out for a couple hours this morning and found bait fish and SM. This may be what you are looking for? Bobby

    In my recent post I noted bait fish in 20 fow pretty close to the bank on the gravel flats. In this case the bait fish were on the bottom and lit up the bottom half of my screen. You may want to watch https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=tacticalbassin. They announced that they were putting together a 3 part series on interpreting your locator.

    Indian Point area - 8/15/18

    I got out from 7 pm - 9 pm last night. Since I was short on time I just went to one of my favorite gravel points and started looking near the roll-off. Saw plenty of fish on the locator on the bottom at 28 ft and suspended in the water column over the abyss at this same depth. Managed to catch a few including this nice SM using crawlers. I moved to swallow water near the bank and found lots of bait fish in less than 20 fow and caught a few on the slab spoon. The drop shot bite just ain't what it was as Bill B . has previously noted. The cooler weather and a slight breeze made it a very pleasant evening. Water temp 82. Bobby
  5. I received the Final SMP postcard for Bull in the mail Friday. Apparently the workshops are to learn the final deal for Bull. So does anyone here know what's going on with TR SMP, particularly the solar power requirement and the buoy deal? Thanks Bobby

    Just Kicking and Stewing

    Recall that I often say I'm pretty new at bass fishing and new at TR. I understand that pretty soon I'm gonna have to stop using that as an excuse when I can't catch fish. But as some of you might recall I have been doing very well all summer on the drop shot even to the point of it was almost getting boring or at least not challenging so I haven't bass fish for two weeks and then I asked Randy to teach me some about walleye for which I'm very grateful. So another one of my kids from Colorado was here for a couple days and we went out from 6 - 10:30 am today. I worked pretty hard at it as I wanted him to catch fish. He did manage 4 and I fished just a little bit so I could help him and I managed two. But I marked fish all over the gravel points at 30 fow and they just would not cooperate and I was using crawlers. Bobby

    Live bait rigs and mid week kimberling report

    I found that the trap makes all the difference for me. The smaller traps you can get at Walmart never produced much. I bought a bigger one from a bait store and it would be full of large crawdads. I would drop it in 15 fow on our dock.

    COE Private Boat Dock regulation change

    Boat lift power draw is minimal compared to charging bass boat 24/36 volt systems. See my estimates above of cost based on charging 5 bass boats at anyone time and the occasionally boat lift plus lighting. It's probably a moot point because I think the COE is going to give up this very bad idea. Bobby

    30 July on the Upper End

    Randy, Thanks so much for taking me fishing and showing me how to troll for walleye. You are a true gentleman. Bobby PS -- He even cleaned the fish for me. Excellent guide.
  11. Got out at 7 am and fished until 10:30 am. WT 85 deg. Haven't been out for a few days - confined to the house with cold/allergy grud. Tried my favorite long gravel runouts and found fish at 28 fow on the bottom. Caught a few and wasn't bothered by the blue gill today but decided to try to find new places to fish. Looked at the map and went from bluff ends to short and long gravel points that were close to the deep drops. Found fish at nearly every spot, caught one or two and went on to another new spot. Didn't see lots of fish on the locator in any one spot but sometimes they would sudden appear when one of their buddies got hooked. Most locations did show bait fish and a couple times the graph went dark with the bait fish. Sometimes the fish were on the bottom and sometimes suspended over depth usually close to the drop off. Fish were still biting when I left, maybe because it was overcast, maybe because mid day was the prime solar lunar period or both. Very pleasant morning to be out. Caught mostly 14 - 16 Spots, a couple SM, one really nice SM. Bobby

    Indian Point Area - 7/27/18

    The boat traffic/skiers wasn't too bad this morning, probably because the overcast made it feel kinda cool. I understand what you mean about just a few SM for me today. There is an area my neighbor's call Smallmouth Point (you probably know the place) and rightfully so but all I'm getting there this year is Spots. Last year I bought the black light you recommended and fished at night allot. The light really works well to see the shore and the line movement. Only went out at night once so far this year as I usually am ready for bed about 9 p.m. The one time I was out recently I almost ran into a wake boat with no lights. Was thinking about getting one of those remote controlled search light to mount on the front of the boat.

    either "frontitis" or another depth change

    Thanks for the report. How would you expect the upcoming full moon to effect the depth or the bite? Bobby

    My neighbor (about my age, old) was in the Marines as a young man and told me that he saw these used a couple times for transport and they were death traps then.
