    need a new boat cover

    I replaced mine last year with a cabelas ratchet support system cover, I have not had problems with it leaking but it's a PIA to put it on with the supplied straps .it didn't come with support posts so I used my old one in the middle and up front I have a wooden bow across to support cover. Without them the cover pools water on it as the straps in the cover are not tight enough to support it. If I had to do it again I would get the factory cover copied by a custom shop
  3. they will start removing the boom tomorrow .

    Looking for a Navionic card

    i like the ray marime dragonfly as it has a wifi hot spot so i can link it to my tablet and have a second screen on the boat to have the gps on one and the chart on the other .it does not link to my bow mount but i don't find that a big deal .

    Looking for a Navionic card

    you can put the navonics ap on a samsung phone or tablet for 20 bucks for a one year subscription, on my tablet it works great and is alot cheaper then renewing my subscription on my ray marine . for some reason it is way more to buy for the apple version.

    Question:Jet divers off planer boards

    Yes you can run a jet off in line boards, I usually run 2 jets and a dipsey off Port side, just remember to have your shallow running jet out the furthest , then run the deeper one in closer and a dipsey in close off the back corner on a one set with no board even deeper . That way if you catch on the outside it will come in over the deeper lines without tangles. same goes for lead core off the other side . When checking lines just skip the board over to the middle and bring it in down the chute . When letting it back out just float it straight out the back till it clears the other lines and then set it and let it move In to position . I,ve been In teaching mode for the last 2 days with a buddy that's a bass guy wanting to transition to trolling pickerel we got his boat and tackle all rigged , had 6 Lines out today with no tangles he is on his own after today .

    Bow electric recommendations

    Just don't forget to budget for 2 good batteries no use having a great motor but not enough reserve power to last a day of fishing .
