Topic: Minn Koda Trolling Motor

I bought a new boat last year and I had a new Minn Koda Ulterra trolling motor installed it is 36 volts 112 pound thrust . I am 65 and have had my share of surgery . The Ulterra will deploy and stow with the press of a button , It has all the bells and whisels . I love it the only thing is I see that the pros are not using the ultera they are using the one that you stow manualy . Why is this are the pros concern the auto deploy and stow will breakdown on them ? Thank you

Topic: Minn Koda Trolling Motor

The new deploy stow on the remote you wear around your neck has a lock button so motor can’t deploy . This will change the way ya fish it is awesome . I use the remote around my neck to run motor it is much easier than using pedal . The spot lock auto pilot go to way point contour track I pilot are awesome . You can raise and lower the motor without stowing it . You can go from point to point on lake and power fish without even getting out of driver seat . You just cast from the drivers seat to see if you can get a bite you then run the trolling motor with the remote talk about power fishing it is awesome . Thanks for your help !

Topic: Suspended Bass

On my home lake I see suspend fish in front at the corner of boat docks : Not sure if it is bass my question is do we know how many hours a day bass sleep .? Do we know if fish are like deer and feed more at night . What is your opinion about dock lights to attract bait fish .? I feel like having to many dock lights on a lake hurts the daytime fishing because when the lights come on it makes it easier for fish to feed on bait fish .

Topic: Skipping

Ya know I find of course it is easier to skip with a spinning reel I am sure you know this but I tell ya I have had trouble doing it I think it takes a lot of practice to do it like the pros . It so cool to watch them do it so well practice pratice . Let’s ask the pros how long it took them to really get good at skipping .

Topic: Braided Line on Fishing Rods

I would like to bring up a point that to me just don’t make since but it does with the pros . They tie a florcarbon leader on to the braid
To hide the line but the lure has has a hook exposed like a Ned rig or a drops shot with a hook they can see plain and the bass still bite it is this not had to understand or am I missing something .

Topic: Heavy Heavy Rain

I live on Smith Lake Alabama the lake was 48;degrees 2 weeks ago the heavy rain has raised the lake 14 feet in the last 2 weeks the water temp is in the high 59 . My question is could this cause the spotted bass to start spawning ? The lake is not real bad muddy on Simpson creek . I am really enjoying your classes being able to ask a question is way cool !

Topic: My question is Apple app for Weighing Fish

We should be able to use one cell phone in boat . Use face time to record our catch let the fish go right after you catch it . To many fish are being caught off the beds and hauled 20 miles back to weigh in we lose the spawn eggs when this happens . The app should only allow taking a picture of the fish one time you take a picture of the fish .

Topic: As far as fishing

My prolem with tournaments is they catch the spawning fish that is on the bed then haul the fish 20 miles to weigh in we lose those eggs . We need a way of weighing the fish and leting them go as soon as we record the catch . There should be some way to do it using facetime on phone .
