    Why use leader with Braided Line?

    I remember times that I have fished with a fluorocarbon leader and caught fish, and a guy standing right next to me using the same lure without a fluoro leader didn't catch anything; I'm not sure what the difference is but I always use a leader.

    Lowrance question

    Thanks for the responses; I tried taking the transducer off and hanging it in the water and that didn't work-You guys are right, must be the splice. It is a lowrance elite-5xHDI, I assume when replacing the transducer it must be the same one I am taking off?

    Lowrance question

    Thanks Dada, gonna try that next time out. Rusty do you mean the transducer should be angled toward the bottom (not parallel)?

    Lowrance question

    I recently changed trolling motors and had to remove the transducer from the old motor and put it on the new one. The new motor has a fin so the only direction I could point the transducer was towards the prop (I thought this might cause interference but didn't really have a choice). Also, I had to cut the cable (above the water line) and splice it back together. I am getting unreasonable depth readings and a blacked out screen. I am wondering if the splice is the problem or the transducer facing the prop? Any suggestions or input would be great, Thanks!
  5. Thanks for the responses, I talked my way back into the garage until winter:)
  6. Good News: I recently got a new boat and can fish again!!! Not so Good News: I have to store it outside; Anybody have any knowledge about a good, reasonably priced boat cover that will keep out the rain / snow? (BTW, the boat is a 16' fiberglass Center Console). Thanks
  7. Thanks for the info; someone bought it before i got to see it.
  8. I am planning on looking at a boat that has a 2002 50hp Tracker motor on it with 400 hrs. I have no experience with these motors so if anyone knows anything about them, please share. Thanks!

    Those trips make the best memories! I have a 15yr. old daughter that doesn't fish much anymore but we have some great and funny memories of being on the water together as a family.

    Went again last night from 6pm-745. Caught 4 stripers and a big nasty gar. Caught everything on the small shad colored fluke and jig head. The biggest striper was about 8#. Fun night!
