    Yep. The LSS2 is still quite capable. It would be nice if I had a Garmin to compare with, but I think in this case the LSS2 would do better anyways.

    I wanted to make a clean run to get a good image of the Spiegel Grove off Key Largo, but too many dive boats and fisherman. That, and my own crew was antsy to fish as well. But in my single p*** to get to my buoy, got this nice screen shot.

  6. Black Salt Inshore

    Built a black salt inshore rod with a Shimano Stradic Ci4+ 4000. Looking forward to breaking her in! [image]http://www.mbcforum.com/fbbuploads/1423749081-IMG_2737.JPG[/image]

    No idea where you are located, but Mudhole is a couple miles from my house so that's where I get all my stuff. Mudhole Website
  8. Dual Batteries help

    With a house battery setup, you should have a dual pole switch. That way you keep the starter seperate from all your electronics and don't have a way to drain your starter accidentally. It will also cure the problem of your electronics shutting down when you start. The house battery can be charged from an ACR or you can add a wire from your motor and hookup the isolated charging output. The F150 has a pretty weak alternator.

    Very cool....explain to me the curving guides....first time I've seen this one Beautiful wrap.... dc Sure. For conventional rods the reel is up as are the guides. When a big brute of a fish is pulling, he pulls with a downward force. On a spinning rod with guides down this is a natural thing, but with a conventional rod the guides want to be down on the bottom because of the downward force. So if you leave the guides on top you get a force to the side trying to pull your rod around so the guides are on the bototm. With the spiral wrap you as quickly as you can wrap the guides to the bottom so the downward force doesn't cause any twisting. If you ask any rod builder to build himself a conventional rod, he will build himself a spiral wrapped rod.
