    WP Tuna Sept 20&21

    30# Andi pink, no braid or top shot. Not to say there might be one day per season where fluorocarbon top shot would do better than straight mono. However the other 99% of the time it will do as well and much easier to deal with when something breaks.

    Canning tuna

    2nd Lawrence's suggestion. Add anything you want after opening the jar. We just use straight tuna, the pressue cook for 100 minutes @ 11# psi. It is hard to screw up canning tuna no matter what you do (expect under cooking it).

    Scotty DR Power Cord

    For a small amount of extra money, use tinned wire as the splice wire. I have added extensions and they work fine, however even with the best sealing job over a couple of years regular wire corrodes to the point it will not carry enough amps to run the downrigger.

    I would second what Tinmanxx said. I have a 7000 and it is very accurate AFTER calibration (which is not hard). However calibration involves being able to get to the back of the instrument to flip some very small switches. Keep that in mind when mounting.
