From fish, to foul we have had a great first season. Hardest thing for me is figuring out the HDS9, and getting the structure scan working, since it hasn't worked since I bought the boat. The last few trips out have been producing a lot of shorts, a few legal, and a few nice fish shook at the boat. I guess I need to put my downriggers to work more, I try to fish 30' or less, and I have found my favorite gear is this crazy plug! Keep wackin and stackin boys!

    Badass, great photo spread. That plug is awesome but doesn’t act the same with single point barbless hooks.

    Nice, It appears I have the same-similar boat, & I did not understand why or how well it would work putting the down riggers on those back plates. It seems they would be out of reach?

    I was thinking that it would be easier to weld plates on the rail, so your close to them. Something similar to the NR. Does it work well, pros & cons with that setup is appreciated.

    Nice looking fish.... maybe I’m not seeing it straight but doesn’t that one have an extra fin?

    The pictures all range in dates from July to January, so nope no extra fins. Yea, with single size triple zero circle hooks, the plug has a real big wobble!
    As far as the boats rigger mounts, at first I was really skeptical about where they are, but it isn't bad, guess you just get used to it. Only thing I don't like about them is I think they should have beefed them up more, and since the boats aluminum, you always have to check your nuts, and not just the important ones, because they sure do rattle loose from the hulls vibrations.
