  3. Three people can be tricky. With guys who know their job, it's doable though. Driver keeps driving. Guy hand lining only worries about hand lining. Now comes the tricky part. Who nets? The guy fighting the fish. He has to drop the rod (or hand it off to the driver) and grab the net. Much easier with a fourth person but it's still manageable. Good luck!

  4. 18-24ish feet. Handlining is the downside. There are days when I run long leads off the ball. Slide Diver makes a diver to make long leads easier. All because there are days when the fish want longer leads. Why wouldn't long leads be an advantage? Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman mobile app
  5. My first preference is Tekota 700LCs. Daiwa 47LCAs have also worked really well for us. The Daiwas are now our high divers Sent from my iPhone using Great Lakes Fisherman mobile app

  8. I realize this post is a couple months old and you've probably already developed a solution For anyone else considering the same in the future: An iPad, iPod, phone, etc. still needs wifi or cellular signal for gps. Otherwise it has no way to communicate with the satellites. You could possibly use your phone as the signal source though.
  9. Awesome. Thanks. That's what I'd expect.
  10. I have a Raymarine a98 MFD with no network at this time. The radar is connected via wifi directly to the mfd. I am now looking to connect a Simrad AP24 pilot and would like the two to talk to one another, likely via NMEA2000. The question now is whether to use the Raymarine or Simrad network as the backbone? Theoretically there shouldn't be a difference but am not wanting to buy one and should have gone the other direction. I have not asked Raymarine or Simrad only because I expect no support for trying to attach other mfgs equipment. Any thoughts or experience on whether I should use the network from the AP mfg or the MFD mfg?
  11. Correct. Do not attach a board to your lead core. Unfortunately this isn't a "buy one reel with 10 colors and fish every depth" scenario. If you want to target multiple depths, you'll need multiple setups. I have six: 2,3,5,8,10,12 colors. Then there's copper...
  12. I'm not sure I fully understand either. You don't want to attach your board to the leadcore, only your backing. I think what he was saying was some people like to clip the board on right after the lead core but he likes to let more line out before clipping the board on to allow the lead core to sink more and to get the board away from the knot. I do the same thing for the same reason.
  13. It's a good starting point. Don't get wrapped up in thinking temp is a hard rule. Your link is pretty good info though.
