  1. How's it going Wayne?

  2. Page 26 shows the connection diagram for the data wire on the HDS 5 unit. Well at least the one I downloaded from lowrance.com does.
  3. The new one printed great for me. The old one comes up in 2 pages, and required to be changed to landscape format by the looks of it. Thanks
  4. No problems printing it this morning
  5. The have a forum section, similar to how GLF is set up for specific questions related to various models and the different carriers. They also have free ringtones, themes and various apps and accesories available. Its worth looking into at the very least.
  6. Try calling Okuma, Last I heard if it would fit in an envelope, they would ship it free. Okuma Fishing Tackle 2310 E. Locust Court, Ontario, California 91761 (909)-923-2828
  7. Its been pretty much debunked...the "DNR" officer in the picture I saw was not a michigan DNR officer. Please post the pics!!
  8. They are getting hard to find but the plastic Q-tip straws work great too...get 2 uses out of 1:grin:
  9. They do a very good job of holding the boat steady. Takes a lot of the side to side motion out, at least the quick jerky stuff.
  10. I have a pair of Dick's trolling bags and IMHO they way surpase the quality of the drift bags available at most stores like gander. I've used them on both my Islander and my 16 footer work great on both. Tie them off well forward and dont forget to tie of the trip cord and you'll almost forget they are there. As Frank said you may have to give it more power to maintain speed, but that also helps with manuverability. And No, I haven't noticed where they rub or scrape the side of the boats at all.
  11. I've used all different kinds but blacks or walkers are the best IMHO. My only thing with either is to check for nicks either in the face surface on the walkers or in the wire bend on the blacks.
  12. Several years ago I tied fire line on my rigger rods. Now first I have to say I did not use any mono backer, but don't think that was my problem... But I found that if my swivel locked up the fire line balled up and when I retieved my rigger teh fire line literally came apart in my fingers. blame it on the swivel..yea I'm sure part of it was that, but I stripped it off and went back to mono. Better line technology now and maybe better swivels, I may try it again to help with teh blowback and strech issues. just something to keep in mind.
  13. But have heard this is a nice place http://www.michcampgrounds.com/betsieriver/
  14. More smaller tubes increase surface area thereby increasing heat transfer.
