    Rascal, when you say offshore, what is considered offshore? 45's 50's? It seemd that this year everyone was running "offshore" to catch fish. I usually hang out on the bank or run south to the projects.

    Okuma Classic Pro Glt ????'s

    I ran them last year with twill tips for wire divers. They worked great
  10. Does anyone know of any good reading material on understanding the currents and temperature? Fishing is always different every day and wind, temp and currents all play a role in that. I picked up Keating on Kings and it was a real good read. Any other suggestions?
  11. Because I now have two of them. The new boat I bought had one on it
  12. I used this one season on my old boat. Includes the probe, display, power and antenna cords. You will need to get new coated downrigger cable. Paid $550 new, selling for $400.

    Was out last Friday in the morning. 4 for 8 north of the point in 120 - 170 FOW. Had a nice king 25.5lbs on a blue alwife on a 200 copper. Went out in the evening and went 1 for 1 in the same area. Should have gone to the bar instead of fishing
