Re: Do fish react to fish finders?

I've sight dropped a lure directly onto a 10kg Snap under my yak in 2m of water, in the "wild" far north with no issues, sounder banging away. Elasmobranchs however... I've seen a bay of Eagle Rays scatter as I glided (glid?) in quietly with the sounder running. 2 meters of water, the cone of most ...

Re: Do fish react to fish finders?

Marc, some will say they do some will say not . I say no they do not . Commercial boys use them 100% . Mine is on 100% whilst fishing from 1 metre which shows nothing out to the 50 m mark. To turn sounder off you are now almost blind so what is the point of turning it off and on . I speak only for m...

Bag sits nice and flat , wind no problem, it all helps. a couple of hottie bottles from the red shed filled and in freezer do not over fill , they s...

Re: Weather limits

As, AW has said. But there are things to consider Even experienced can get caught out. That is regardless of thinking ahead. Wind can always be the problem is . Strangely it starts from a puff, lol.

Re: 400 vs Reload

Keep at buying your bits quite often the gear gets sold on here, or ask if a person has what you want you just never know your luck . The 400 is a very good craft. Read reviews on here. most is subjective but comes in handy.

Coastguard App.

Before I download App, I would like to ask those who are using this app how you are getting on with it ? Any problems to sort through . Easy enough to navigate for those not so great with modern tec, ect. $2.99 sounds cheap enough. Cheers
