My neighbor and I took my sled out for a 51 mile tour of Izor’s, the Shoe and PV. Weather was as predicted with a breeze from the SE. We must have hit 50 or more spots for 18 bass to 3.5# and a short slimer. It was that slow. Temp was 58-59 degrees and you could not tell current as the SE wind was fairly stiff. Since the fishing sucked big hairy, smelly, sweaty donkey balls, I’m thinking there was no current. There must have been a memo or something saying the fishing was going to suck, cause we were like the only ones out there.

I did manage to map the new PVAR and identify most of the rockpiles.

Anyways the boat ran great and we didn’t sink it or get arrested or towed. It was a great day on the water.

Which nav charts u using? I want that. Right now I just use Google maps to pre game structure, then transfer those spots to my active captain manually.... but I'm pretty tired of it.

Navionics Platinum (might be platinum plus) with relief shading. Getting started isn’t intuitive though. Once you get the card, you have to then put it in a computer, log on to Navionics, download the relief shading to the card (takes at least 30 minutes) then tell your plotter to show photo overlay.

What transducer are you guys using? Looks very clear for a lowrance.
3 in 1, though I’m looking to add a B175HW for the up and down.

Thanks for the report. My last trip, fri, was for rockfish. Got 9 around but got beat up coming in. Took 16-24 oz weight and a large sea anchor to slow down the drift enough to stay down.

    You got out, you caught fish... I'm jealous!! Can't wait until the wind dies down, the thunderstorms disappear, and the water warms up. Thanks for the report!

    Good effort Kurt and we all know there have been worse days on the water.
