    Caleb Sumrall is in my Phoenix

    I thought the fish weren't suppose to touch the carpet before release? Bobby

    Point 5 Area - 10/12/18

    Got out for a couple hours in the rain. Tried a couple of my favorite gravel points and found fish had moved closer to the bank, suspended at 20 in 30 fow in many spots but would not bite. Moved to some bluff ends and found fish suspended above the trees at about 25 ft. Caught a few all 15 inch Ky except for one short. Nice cool day with light rain. WT still 73. Bobby

    Is it typical for the bite to slow when the water runs? Thanks Bobby

    Kayak Tournament

    This summer I've seen lots of boats running with those blue UV? lights in the rub rails but no red/green navigational lights so I can't tell if they are coming or going or just standing still. I use my UV lights for fishing but turn them off while running.

    Today on the Upper End

    got hit with one last night as I was not paying attention, wave came over the front of the boat big time - the only funny part of this is that I had my 18 month old lab with me (training him to not be a pain in the boat for his first upcoming duck season) and he was in the front of the boat and got tsunamied. Couldn't fish much as I was dealing with the dog but did catch one short Ky in 30 fow on a chunk rock point - I noted that the bite was incredibly light. Question - Do you think that the new fish locators can take a soaking like the a wave coming over them - I may call humminbird. Bobby

    Indian Point Area - 9/17/18

    Got out this morning for a couple hours and trolled long gravel run outs after seeing fish on the locator at 30 fow suspended over depth as well as on the bottom. Used a Rapala DT16 shad color crank on metered line using a technique recently learned from a OAF member. WT 82degrees. Caught one Ky, two SM and a nice Walleye plus another keeper Walleye dropped off as I raised it into the boat. One SM came on a football jig around trees in 15fow. Bass were 16 in. plus and the walleye 20 inches. Bobby

    Swamped - almost

    I've tried different things - turning the boat around so the back end takes the hit seems to work best for me - a week or so back I had a wake boat decide to turn right in front of me and I wasn't thinking fast enough to react, the wall of water came over the front of my boat and came all the way back to the console - I was totally soaked - I get little concerned about all the electronics and electrical connections which in my case are mostly in the front of the boat. This has been so common place for me, I don't even talk about on the this forum anymore.

    Trolling Plate

    The hole in the middle allows water to flow to the prop for backtrolling. The springs are matched to the motor size allowing the plate to flip up and stay up at speeds greater than 5 mph - 7mph. I tried it and both functions worked on my 20 hp. Ebay cost $115

    Trolling Plate

    I just started trolling BS for Walleye and whatever will bite. I'm using my metal boat with a tiller motor which works well but at times depending on wave action and wind direction I can't get the boat to go slower than 2.5 mph. Other times it's fine. So I started looking for a trolling plate and I found two choices - 1) a plate that you deploy/pull up manually with a rope and 2) one that is spring loaded that drops automatically. I didn't like the first one because I will forget to stow it and something might break and didn't care for the idea of the second one because it can effect reversing. I found this on ebay - made by a guy out of Lincoln, NE. Comes in three version depending on motor size. It has a hole to facilitate reverse driving. It works well for me and I can now get the boat down to 0.5 mph. Thought I would share. Bobby

    Lure Identification

    Thanks to all for the help on this. Bobby

    electronics setup

    I love the Ulterra but I have to agree. The Ulterra does everything that I could imagine a trolling motor could do EXCEPT support the advanced transducers. Also it would be to their advantage to support down and side imaging somehow with the Ulterra because it would result in the consumer buying a more expensive sonar unit for the bow. Because I wanted/needed the self deploy unit there was no reason to buy anything more than the 2D unit but if the capability was there I would have bought a much more expensive sonar.
