Are you still fishin "blind", if so you still don't have a clue what's under the surface. So when in Boston, "dodging the traffic", head down to Bass Pro and do some shopping for GPS/Sonar, lol. It will realy make it allot easier for you, however you will still have days when there are tons of fish and bait, but no takers. But at least you wont waste much time in water with no fish showing and you'll have a better idea how fast you are going. Make sure a unit is on Santa's list. But I think you can do pretty good on E Bay.
I have a seat for you Saturday if ya want to fish the home lake
Thanks John, the sonar/gps is first on my list, hopefully by next Spring. In the meantime, I've been going more and more with streamers per the advice that they are a little less speed sensitive (relative to a spoon anyway). I do look forward to a seat on the Barge again someday soon but I'm on baby duty this weekend. BTW, I was out waterskiing last night on the little lake and saw the the Barge in non-fishing mode. Looked like folks were having a nice time but didn't see you. If you were there, I was the Lund buzzing by (at a safe distance, of course) towing the kids (big and little).
For what its worth, I was talking with a marine patrol officer once about the 150' rule and people's disregard for it or inability to know how far it really is. He told me as a rule of thumb, to someone with average eyesight 3" block boat numbers are distinguishable up to 150'. If you can read the numbers, you are inside 150'.
