I will be fishing offshore most of the time and will be handling 20 pound fish and occasionally freshwater. Is there a one size fits all rod / reel? Or should I get two rods? o didn’t know there were so many kinds.. jigging..spinning..trolling.. I need help.
Im going to Sanibel this weekend for a week I want to know more about refish and snook and what are the best and most effectvie ways of cathing them. Last year I used live bait, but id like to also try lures. If anyone knows some spots that would be great.
does anyone have this portable fish finder? Ive been having a little bit of trouble at times getting it to read even while in the water it does not show the depth. Also does anyone know the proper depth you should have the sensor below the float and how do you mount or troll with it?
One more thing. when it reads fish is that directly below the sensor?
I am planning on purchasing a 7 foot Ugly Stick for saltwater fishing. The pole says 20-40 pound line weight. I am planning on catching grouper, sand perch, snapper, etc. What would be the best size spinning reel for this pole? What size line should I be using?
I’m going Pike fishing in the dead stream between Houghton lake, MI and 127. It has murkey waters, with channels about 6-8 ft deep x 20 ft across, running through a flood plain thats almost always has about 2 ft of water in it. What is the best lure or live bait to use? What part of the channel should I fish in? Any tips or tricks? Ive only reeled one pike out of here before, and I took it with a pike minnow. I mostly just wind up with bass or dog fish on my line.
I forgot to ask this, should I use a steel leader, Ive had a few pike chomp right through 15lb line.
i would like to find a owners manual online for my King 4060 fis finder. this fish finder came with a boat i just bought and it is fairly old but i wanted to give it a try a couple times and maybe it will be good enough for me to not have to buy a new model.
the s/n is 1650 model#4060. it says the word Degauss and it is made in japan. the s/n plate on the back dosent include much more information
i tried to google it there wasnt enough infor for me to0 find out much….worst case ill buy something newer just vtrying top save a few bucks, i had it on todayt and didnt really know how to read it
