    The water around Algonac is about a foot higher than last year for your reference.

    There were lots of fresh mayflies at the gas station in New Baltimore yesterday. Probably still a week to go.

    There have been no official changes to the existing rules in the SCR, at least on the U.S. side. The 200 foot from shore no wake rule for boats under 26 foot is being better enforced. The no wake...

    My Alumacraft Competitor 205 is awesome. Itís got a huge front deck with three seat bases set up for spider rigging, more cockpit room than a bass specific boat that works great for walleye, and...

    Pompeyos Mexican Grill is pretty good, and you can't beat the location right on Thunder Bay. You can eat on the covered porch while you eat, wishing you were out there fishing. There's a park with...

    An hour north of there is Spring Lake and the other Grand River Bayous. Largemouth fishing is excellent there. I don't know anyone who guides over there, but you might be able to hitch a ride with...

    Are those little bumps on the sides of the Xi5 base some custom mounted side lights? If so, I like it.

    I'm surprised it took all the way until the second reply for someone to suggest unhooking the transducers. Last night I finally got back on the water for the first time in a week. Running Genesis...

    Genesis Live Questions

    I finally started playing with Genesis Live on my HDS carbon units this week. It seems to work pretty good actually. But I've got a couple questions for the more seasoned users.

    First, does...

    I know it’s sacrilegious for a bass boat to troll, but when figuring out new water, trolling some jerkbaits and maybe a spinnerbait in the spread can help you find the good smallmouth spots. You can...

    It’s intermittent noises that spook the fish. Turning the motor will create an intermittent noise, and so will getting on and off the momentary switch. I used to do a good amount of daylight...

    You could pull the guts out of the valve so that it can restrict flow and add an old school vent screw to your fill cap.

    I got rid of the pole up front al together and put individual side lights on the rear most outside corners of the front bow platform. That avoided the pole ever getting in the way when stowing or...

    I have a 36V Xi5 that works reasonably well. Anchor mode works great every time, but heading lock has issues. It will set a straight course, but not always in the direction it’s pointed. It will...

    Putting a strainer on the aerator inlet can save a lot of trouble if you fish in the slop.

    Not all new boats use one. Rather it is only the ones with a pressurized fuel system. If your fuel system uses a carbon canister to meet evaporative emissions it won’t have one.

    I’ve got my transducers on a piece of starboard. But the extra offset from the transom means you have to trim up the engine further for a clear shot with these giant transducers.

    The software list the OP posted is not exhaustive. This week I "upgraded" my Carbons and SS3D all to the latest 18.3 to fix waypoint sharing issues. My SS3D was at version 54.1.85 and it was a lot...

    My desire would not be to actually navigate back to those waypoints, but to see how much fish have moved from where they were marked earlier in the day. When big river fishing, I might spend 20...

    Unless you are going to adjust the angle of transducer on the water multiple times a day for when you are at the helm operating at different speeds or you change the weight distribution by fishing...

    Split screen is a rough approximation, but unless you can zoom the map to the exact side scan width and synchronize boat speed exactly with scroll speed it would be very hard to fell if fish moved...
  23. Can you overlay waypoints on structure scan?

    Iíve been using structure scan on my Carbons to mark a lot of fish. It would be really cool if I could overlay waypoints on the structure scan view to be able to go back through an area say an hour...

    I updated everything to the latest 18.3 versions and waypoint sharing seems to be working now. Tomorrow I’ll get on the water to see if structure scan images are still as crisp as they were before.

    The biggest stainless ones that will fit in the mount. I used #10’s on my SS3D ducer. I don’t think you need a full 1” length, but check for clearance behind if you use ones that long.
