  1. Jeff, ill bet if you called them, dont trust that they will respond to your email, calling works best, it may take a few calls to get someone on the phone, but ill bet they would send you a copy of instructions, they very good about customer support!!

  2. ive got i bunch of new rod holders and want to get them mounted. my question is when running the boards and cores is it better to run the rod tips up pointing more twards the sky or lower and more parallel to the water or maybe somewhere inbetween???? thanks guys!!!

  3. Jason, trying to turn your vessel running your trolling motor (locked dead ahead) and using your main as a rudder will not achieve the desired results. you maybe able to turn 180* in a mile or so but you will not be happy with the way it turns, your outdrive does not have enough rudder authority to turn the boat effectively. your boat turns mainly by vectoring the prop thrust and not using the skeg and the rest of the drive as a rudder. many i know use the EZ-steer and are happy with the results, GOODLUCK!!

  4. CHRIS,vectors if you get them you would be happy you did!!! ROCK SOLID tottally adjustable. ive got a line on some used triple super spreaders that i will install ASAP ive seen them and used them on another boat and as good if not better than the berts and traxtech.......oh before i forget here are another coulpe contenders to throw into the mix!!!



  5. one of the key puzzle pieces to find the fish is water temp, so thats why so many guys run some kind of temp probe to locate more productive water temps, kings generally hang in 42F-45F. after a long hot july you may have to get you DR balls down 50-70 fow in 100+fow to find more ideal water temps

  6. I bought all of mine at Captain Gary's in North Muskegon he has a ton of the Ram rod holders and sells them on Ebay as well. I had to modify them to fit in my Berts tracks. He was selling them for 35 bucks a pair at the Grandville swap meet and if you buy a bunch he might make a better deal. I have 10 of them on my boat and they hold real good and adjust to any angle. http://www.captgarys.com/ . For the price I can't find a better deal anywhere I ran 6 of them last year and added 4 more for this season worked fine pulling divers all season long.

    Jim, were they the 119 model with the 1-1/2" ball or the model 119D with the 2-1/4" ball........oh the question being, what is the model you have and will the rams hold up to the huge strain of a magnum dipsy?? thx

  7. I caught my first Walleye when I was four on a snoopy Zebco combo, over on the East side of Michigan.

    Ah the scourge of all east side walleyes', the deadly snoopy combo. my christiana got her 1st fish on her barbie combo when she was 5, now cant keep her from asking "when are we going fishing?" WELCOME TO THE SITE

  8. Sean, i dont know if your going to be trailering?? if yes, nick is correct in that some thru-hull transducers can be damaged or broken off during launching and recovery. one of the pluses of the B-60/SS-60 is that it is low profile and after speaking with a customer service agent at AIRMAR they informed me that the B-60/SS-60 was designed for trailered boats and it going over rollers or resting on bunks was NOT going to do any damage to the ducer according to the airmar agent. another concern of mine is that you said you may remove a old ducer and replace it with the B-60?? if yes the challenge maybe trying to open up the existing hole. i dont think a hole saw may work unless you some how plug the old hole with a wood dowel, as a hole saw uses a drill bit with a outer ring inter-changeable saw and trying to keep the drill bit centered in the hole can be trouble?? is this clear?? maybe trying a roto-zip the get the hole enlarged?? it does not need to be perfectly round as the ducer has a larger flange on it to make the seal!!! hope this helps


  9. i have a SS-60...with a furuno fcv-620. same as the B-60. if your able to compare the two ducers you will find that the B-60 is a better performing model than the transom mount, i took me a few hours to install. the hardest part was to overcome the fear of screwing up drilling the 2-3/4" hole in the boat!!! i used 3M 5200 sealant and its not leaked or loosed yet, another tricky part was to get a wrench around the large nut, but used a trick a shop teacher showed me in high school, as you may know and anyone who takes pictures for a living may tell you, a camera is only as good as the lens you are using!!! here more info and try gemeco for buying it i think they have good prices on most stuff!!!



  10. NICK, "Church also came out with a new release that is just like the original, but reversed so the line pulls into the release instead of out of it. I will probably try them this year." YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN BY TACKING IT APART, CLIPPING OFF THE LITTLE TAB AND PUTTING IT BACK TOGTHER, CHURCH THEMSELVES TOLD ME HOW TO DI IT BEFORE THEY CAME OUT WITH THE NEW ONE

  11. ive seen most glow stuff and not been to happy with it. i found these glow sticks and that last 10-12 hrs and come in many colors. in this pic i have not activated the stick to make it glow. after its done glowing it will remain the glow color, if i want to use another later in time i just retie the loop in the leader and slide another stick onto the fly leader, i like it and works well!!!


  12. the best thing to do is JUST FISH......i know its like drinking out of a fire hose but dont stress to much.......remember fishing is FUN!!! one thing to do is to learn by doing....take the books and try to apply a few things and experiment....and with more hours on the water it will get easier..and some days nothing will work.....but then again they call it fishing......if it were an excact science and a sure thing they be calling it CATCHING!!!!! HAVE FUN!!!!!!

  13. Great Video, One thing that should be noted; To all of you that are new to diver fishing. Watch this video, each time before the rod comes out of the holder, the drag gets loosened up a bit. This is a great thing to do when fishing with no stretch line (copper or braid)

    GREAT POINT!! also id like to add that to save your clicker from wearing out prematurely, once the fish is on, i turn off the clicker. sure it sounds great but i like to try to get my stuff to last as long as possible, its to expensive to be replacing GREAT VID!!!!
