60" Drift Sock

2 posts in this topic

I want to purchase the 60" Wave Tamer sock by Lindy. I'll use it for controlled drifts and forwards trolling with the main motor. I have a 1700 Fisherman with an F150 motor. I can only get down to about 3mph while trolling forward using the Yam. without the sock. Will the F150 put too much stress on a 60" sock?

Thanks

I cannot directly answer your question but I would reccomend that you check out Wave Tamer's website and look at the two bag system that they show. I think they reccomend 2-40 inch bags for your motor. I will say that the 2 bag system is very nice for trolling. It helps keep your boat from weather cocking in a cross wind, slows your boat and you can turn around on a dime. Sorry to take you off topic but I think you will like it for trolling.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
