I spent alot of time researching before I bought mine and came to the conclusion that the Depth Raider and Sub Troll were the more popular units. There are pros and cons to both. I have a friend who has a Depth Raider and likes it but also have heard others complain about small relatively minor operational issues on other boards, that can be frustrating. Problem Might be in their set-up...I don't know. I have the Sub Troll and really like it. I have had it for two seasons now and have never had any down time with it....works great. I found Russ at MG to be a great resource for info...I could have gone either way with it but they had special pricing at the time on Sub Troll so went that route. Don't think you would go wrong with either one

Does anyone use the Cannon speed N temp? I see one of the of 4 or 5 bits of data it relays is % of light at the cannonball. Is it very accurate? It seems usefull! At what % would you use glow lures?Anyone know of any charts showing % of light versus lure selection?

Both Depth Raider and Sub Troll have coated downrigger cables. You take off your original and replace it with their coated cable. Signals go from the probe through the cable and then from an antennae mounted on your boom through a coax back to your unit. Not sure about Canon or FIshawk. The cable is not difficult to change.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
