If you like to drift fish and have some tips and tricks to share, this is the place. Once we get into warmer weather and the Gills move to deeper water is when the fishing really gets good if you are a drifter.
Thank you Marvin I would be honored to be a friend on your friends list. Any time I can help please jump in and ask away. If I don't know the answer we'll find it out some how some where or if you just want to talk feel free I love to talk especially fishing.
Marvin;Keith Ritter;; lives real close to Reelfoot lake;; I am about a good 3 hour drive from it. i live just outside of Nashville Tn. Old Hickory Lake;; is about 2 miles from me !! I really hate that !! hahahahahaha I have at least;; 4 different places to put a boat in at;; in a 10 mile radius. my one and only real favorite fish is-- blue gills!! red ears ! sunnies ! crappie another great favorite; then come sauger;; wall eye; stripe. not a green carp fisherman at all ! ( thats a bass!! )
Marvin;; I was going to this week end;; then saw where bass pro;; is having their fall fishing event;; sept 26 thru the 28 i believe. any way;; thats when im going to get it. cant pass up a good chance;; of messing with the ( pro ) guys !! hahahahahahaha I;ll be taking a few of Dick Tabberts;; gilly worms;; jelly jigs;; several other things;; just to mess with them !!
Marvin;; i agree;; the price is a little steep;; but also look at it another way;; it will be the last unit you will ever need! kind of like buying a old clunker car;; then wishing it was a cadillac !! my suggestion is;; get a good unit;; and;; as for not being a computer genius;; dont worry;;; we have-- LEO !!! Leo;; has forgotten more than most people know about computers!! ( my personel oppinion is;; Leo;; was asimalated ; by a nasa computer bank;; which would make Leo;; a cyborg of sorts !! He has a computer chip;; for a brain !! a real terrific guy !! Leo has many post here;; to help guys with computers and depth finders ;; if its a gadget;; Leo knows about it!
Marvin;; Lowrance is having a type of sale right now;; till Nov. !st Depending on which unit you get;; you can get a chip for it;; free ! ( saving 100.00 dollars) that way you can download ;; or make your own maps and things. in just a few days I am going to get the elite 5 unite;; for around 500 dollars. ( wish it was cheaper). but a good unit;; will last a long- long time. colored screens;; are a LOT better than a grey scale
Marvin on fish finders they come in all shapes and sizes. I purchased a Lowrence with all the bells and whistles this spring for 199.00. It will do anything you need it to do. The downside is the screen isn't a large one but it does many things that my older unit won't. Its a good unit to start with and more. I'm surprised you never had a fish finder before its a mainstay to todays fishing. Remember it may show you fish but won't tell you if the fish are feeding or not and you will learn that with time. HYope this helps and don't be afraid to ask questions. The Lowrence I was talking about is posted on the FISHING ELECTRONICS group.
Welcome Marvin this electronic group . This group is for the person who wants just that little bit more out of there electronics or just has questions. A group of fisherman who know there electronics and those that want to learn.
