    Hey guys, rook to the site, and I know I read a recent post w/in the last 2 weeks about a temp break map. I tried searching the forums, google, and so forth to no avail. Went out last week our recently purchased 2301 striper only to find the tranducer has no temp. gauge, so I'm here begging for a temp. gauge map for when we go out tomm. to get some BFT, Albies and YT hopefully. Thanks in advance.

    Rather than begging for a temp map, which will probably change by the time you get out on the water, why not take that new boat back and beg them to fix or install a temp gauge and/or a proper sounder? You'll be much better off and more effective.

    You could always go the cheap route and get a swimming pool thermometer and put it in the bait tank.

    Terraffin is a subscription based service, but the maps are totally up to date, and accurate. www.terraffin.com is how to find them.

    Well, that is the most logical answer to my question, however, there are 2 problems. Boat was purchased from a private party, and if it were purchased froma dealer, we are leaving at 2 tomm. morning, so time is a concern, thanks for all the great responses guys, i think i will join terrafin. thanks again.

    Damn it! Jim beat me to it. Throw a Jaquerzy thermometer in the bait tank and check it that way.

    You can get cheap temp gauge designed to be placed on transom. BUT, you are a boat owner. That means every other week you are going to have to fix something expensive. Buy a new transducer. If you can't afford to then you can't afford a boat. This is a must have piece of equipment.

    Two week old sea surface temps to go fishing is like 2 week old weather forecast to decide what to wear to a football game. You need both a temp gauge on the boat and the sea surface charts.

    I love terrafin because you can get both temp and chlorophyl so you can overlay them.

    Good luck.

    Temp maps are a vital part of finding fish. Yes you need a temp gauge on the boat but these maps help to locate breaks, where your gauge can fine tune the exact location. Also, the chlorophyll maps are really nice to check water clairity in areas before spending tons of cash driving there and finding green water. tempbreak.com has some great shots from today and the breaks are really apparent. I hope they get a chorophyll today. I print copys of the maps whenever I go off shore. Terrafin is even better but it is a pay service. This year so far has not been as important for temps because the rat yellows are everywhere but when the albies are around they are very helpful. One drawback-clouds mean no maps...

    I think we are gonna pick up a new transducer asap, but for the equipment it's kinda tough to find.

    ps. thanks for the avatar comment, i thoroughly enjoyed finding it.

    Good luck tomorrow, I hear they are calling for some VERY strong wind! Be wise and get your boat working in proper order. Gale foce winds 60 miles out is the forecast, it is most likely for up North but I have read reports of guys out today who said it was a washing machine. Good luck

    Definatly Terrafin. I live by it. Clouds suck but when there is a good shot for the day you can pretty much figure out where the fish are.

    Be careful tomorrow!

    Buy a pool gauge, and don't go offshore at 2AM tomorrow in a 23' boat!!! Trust me, it's going to suck, or at least check the weather reports for the area your going to, I believe you'll pass and wait for a better day!!!
