6 posts in this topic

Disconnect it and use your hand grin.gif Did you put that on your pontoon or is there a new boat in your driveway??

You will love the boat. I had a 619 before the current 620. The boat handles all types of water great. The only reason I switched was the whole bigger, deeper, wider, faster, guy thing.

Is your electrosteer going from post to post?? If it is, and you still think you should be getting more turning radius, you will either have to reposition where it mounts on the motor or possibly the electrosteer itself. I love mine. Wouldn't be without it for trolling.

Hey Opie!

Yes I do LOVE it!!!!

It does go from post to post, It just does not turn as sharp as I had thought it would. I had first saw the Electro Steer in action down at Treasure Island during a tournament, the guy who won is the rep for Panther, I was amazed at how fast, and how sharp it appeared to turn his kicker, and it just does not appear that it turns as sharp as his does!
As for repositioning the unit, that would involve more holes wouldn't it? I am a little leary of having more holes in the boat!!

Thanks for the tips!!

    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
    • We caught plenty of bass this weekend.  However most were small 12-13".  Deep fish were less than eager to bite.  Still seen a couple guarding nests yet. Small plastics fished slowly was by far the best tactic. Only found a couple decent fish, biggest being 19.25".
    • We called at about 4 had them as close behind the blind but never came around for the nephew 
    • What great fun on a 4-weight fly rod!!  Those are dandy panfish.
