  1. Also when I find a current were bottom speed is .4 faster I have it and stay straight then it's gone doesn't it stay the same for a while or what?
  2. I tried to calibrate it Saturday morning on pigeon lake and it kept on moving speeds on me. Went from 2.4 to 3.1 and couldn't keep it steady. Does the driver has to keep te boat perfectly straight or is that normal it moving speeds like that. After getting on the big lake it changes speeds a lot also at the ball and boat speed. People who have fosh Hawks do you have the same thing happen?
  3. Got up saturday morning and was the first boat at port sheldon launch and there were alot of cops and news station trucks with the accident so were not able to get in the launch. waited about 10 minutes while they towed the damaged boat away(very sad). after getting out we set lines at 60 fow going on a sw troll and took a quick hit on a 5 color on a mixed veggie. it was a steelhead and snapped off. right after that two riggers went off within seconds of eachother one 33 down on a white moo moo meat rig and the other 50 down on a spotted dick meat rig. had both to the boat and AGAIN both came off. went out to about 95 fow and no hits so we decided to go back in shallow so got nothing going NE until we were about to turn going south 70 fow and had the rigger 50 down again go off got him in about a 9# king on spotted dick. in conclusion we had 6 rips on meat from 33-50 on riggers. two on dypsy blue dolphin 120 back on 3 setting and carmel dolphin 75 back setting 3 and one a 5 color. ended 4-9 two kings and two lakers
  4. That will work I've done that but I switched to using a Albright knot its smaller and one less Knot you have to tie to worry about breaking.
  5. How do you know I you are in a current or how to find one
  6. DR hook how would you know if your in a current by the down speed and top speed difference correct?
  7. how do you know if you in a current and what speed seperation is what we want from top to bottom for good fishing or currents
  8. WOW!!!! JDH thank you so much really appreciate it and also BOSS HAWG. I didnt know you had to calibrate it. when we wer fishing sunday it was going all over the board and was hard finding current
  9. Thanks alot so not only looking at speed also look at how the left and right side of poles bend. basically should have them bending the same?
  10. I bought my first fish hawk and was curious when fishing how to know when you in current. lets just say you are trolling at boat speed of 2.1 mph and the prob 50 feet down is 2.5. should the speed at the ball be faster than boat speed or opposite to catch fish? PLEASE HELP. thanks,
  11. went out of port sheldon last night around 3 and fishing until 7. fished from 25-60 fow. 40 ft seemed best all on a north troll going 5/8 2 keeps one nice 13 pound king on dypsy 3 setting 50 back on carmel dolphin super slim. one on a rigger 15 down on pink with colored spots rapala. two on 50 copper uv mixed veggie and one on 25 copper on monkey puke. Not a bad first time out. alot of bait fish were just north of the pier heads but be careful there is alot of trash and logs out there
  12. getting a new fish finder and was wondering what the difference is with 50/200 or 83/200 transducer. will be using for strictly salmon fishing the big lake. thank you

  15. Thanks everyone for the reply. This has been driving me nuts on what to do. Im likeing the braided with floro but not sure what #. I like the lower lines like 20# braid with 15# liter or should i do 30# braid and 20# liter to be safe?
  16. Need to respool all my lines for this upcoming weekend trip. Any suggestions of line lbs mono/braided color?? anything would help. Ive been strugglking this year on catching the fish and trying every little thing. thank everyone for your help
