Nice fish, John. Congrats on the PB...and to think, on a night that you weren't even thinking of going out. Just goes to show, time on the water is everything!

The ability to skim over some sandbars sure didn’t hurt us last night. We ventured to a couple of spots that I would basically classify as prop unfishable.

Man I gotta get an RP (or equivalent).

Saturday....Jordan....that could have been me.

Thanks guys. The forked whisker was pretty cool. Let's see if we can get that one again soon.

Nice hog WWG. A fish that was brought in for the Franklin tourney had the same type of wisker that split in two and his other wisker was missing. I went out with a friend Tuesday night from a proven shore spot and we got skunked. One run right away that dropped the bait in a snag. Otherwise dead sea from 9-12:30 so we called it quits.

Oooooooooo.... Could it really be....its the mythical Y whisker... How many others out there have gotten one with a forked whisker....

Dtro... that couldn't be the one from a few years ago could it?!?!?!

John.... Congrats on the big one... I'd give it a 50

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
