Adjusting sat. dishes

3 posts in this topic

Is it very hard to dial in these dishes out on the lake? Do you have to dial them in differently all the time? Are they worth takeing with?

It's not that difficult. You just need a compass. I use a sat finder signal meter that goes in line between the dish and the box. With the sat finder it makes it much easier to find the sattelite. You can get them at radio shack. You need to know the correct direction and angle for your area. My box tells you this if you enter a zip code. I think most do this. I use 187 degrees and 37.4 degrees angle to start for around the metro and even mille lacs and then fine tune from there using the sat finder. It usually takes me less than a minute to have it setup. I use an inverter with mine so I don't need a noisy generator. Definitly worth taking with IMO.

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.
