What to do.....water so low

3 posts in this topic

This spring, I installed Lowrance 522C GPS/Depthfinders with Lakemaster chips into my 3 main rental boats that range from a 1600 Crestliner Fishhawk to an 1800 Crestliner Superhawk. In a normal year, we will go thru 2-3 props per boat and unsually a skeg or 2. This has been an unusually busy year for the rentals and we have yet to have as much as a scratch on prop.

I have to assume that the detail of the GPS is saving the day. So those of you out there that have a habit of trying to make sand out of the big rocks with your lower unit, you may want to use this argument with the wife to justify replacing the old (Or not so old) depthfinder.

But Honey, it will save us lots of money in props and skeg repair!!!! Who knows, it may work.

Sounds like a great idea!

For those curious, I checked the water level today and we are 17" below our high level from this spring, which wasn't that high. So, we are getting close to the low levels we had last fall.

      Took my daughter fishing today. Not unusual. She's 18 and has fished with dad since she was a baby. What was unusual was her boyfriend came with us. She grew up fast. Glad it's still cool to hang with her dad. Brought home a pile of crappies to boot. All had fun.

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.
