Hav'n got some fantastic deals on gear on the board before I figured to give it another try. I'm look'n to get 2 drift bags (1 for each side) to slow the Tank down. Anyone have 2 in the garage they want to sell?
All the Best,
Hows the GPS working for you?
Charlie, GPS works great. Thanks again,
try one bag on an 8' ski harness off the stern loops, works alot better than 2 off the sides,,,,at least on my boat
If you can,t find drift bags try a 5 gal.bucket with a big hole in the bottom on each side of the boat.
I use the 5 gallon bucket trick off the back of my 22' eastern, slows me down by .5 mph and puts me at my 2 mph area. Then bucket goes into cabin with my tools at the end of the day. I drilled a bunch of 1" holes in the bucket. It looks like swiss cheese. works perfectly.
I agree, The ski harness works great. An added benefit is when you have a heavy crosswind, the bag will slide to the windward side and stabilizes the boat track giving you more time to fish instead if fighting the boat/wind. I have a 42" bag, it reduces my speed about 1 mph when used this way.
I have a large drift bag you can have. Used it only a few times, but I can get my boat slow enough without it.
I live in Holderness.
Contact me of line if you are interested.
Thanks for the offer. I have one large bag I made but, as usual, I overdid it. **** thing looks like a parachute. Usually I fish alone and use a bucket with a hole in it off the stern but, especially if the wind is up, it's a hassle to take it in everytime I get a hit. The problem with the single bag is the same as with the single bucket. I figured two smaller bags, one off each side would be better as I could just leave them in the water and there'd be one less thing to do, besides keep the line tight, steer the Tank (which never goes in a straight line for longer than .5 seconds) and net the fish.
all the best,
