Do you like cable or power drive?

Personally, I love my auto pilot. I can flip the AP on and walk away to grab a beverage, bait, help land a fish...and not drift off the structure or lose control of the boat.

Cable drive are very nice and boat control is much better...but you can't take your attention off of it in most circumstances.

I like the Maxxum for the extended battery life. I currently have a 55lb Maxxum on the stern of my little boat and I love it. I think when I upgrade boats this spring, I'll look to get a 80# 24V Maxxum w/A.P. and C.P. for the bow. Just my opinion. Good luck with your decision.

I put the Maxxum pro 80# u-sonar 24 volt on my 19ft Stratos glass bass boat last summer and I absolutely love it. It pulls the boat around fast enough to troll crankbaits for walleyes, and it cuts through the thickest milfoil without a problem. That is the biggest advantage I see over the AP. I went with the pro version just because if you are already spending that much money, the extra $ for the lift assist is definitely worth it. I can stow it with one finger.

      The mayflies are just starting in Frazier Bay.  We could see a few in the boat the last couple of days.  Then started seeing big trails on water yesterday and today.  I just got done cleaning 3 walleyes and they were full of them.

      Have the Mayflies started.  We are coming up end of July and trying to see what the time line for them are this year.  Not sure how the late ice out would effect the hatch.  Thanks in advanced.

      67 degrees today in big bay. No fish today for me.

      Just an update, walleye are still hanging on the week edges.  I caught mine in 8-10FOW again.  Lost one that was 4-5lbs.  Best part, I have yet to use livebait this open water season.  Basically the same technique as last week.     Only issue is finding the weeds that hold the fish.  Same as last week, just looking on SI, finding small transitions between weed edge, soft/hard bottom ect.     Once you find them, then you can spot lock/talon down and cast at them.     And, as before all fish were released.

      Saturday and Sunday were tough days on the water, NW winds post cold front. Got better yesterday and today. Took a retired friend out today and sent him home with 4, should have been 6 but I was off my game. Water Temps around 70. Unfortunately can only fish Thursday as I have to work a few days, this weekend. Safe travels on the Independence weekend!

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it
