Fish floating to surface when powered up?

Tue, 2021-02-23 08:47

 

  Thats a big bit of kit , but realisticly with 2-3kw trans , 16 inch screens , ipilot electrics holding you on spots and 19 types of bottom meats

 you can only feed so many sharks up north and with new trial laws coming in , bring home 10kg of demersals fillets , which off most good Nw spots 

 is still achievable with a 1kw and some basic rods and reels. ( we all like toys but have we reached max tech were fisheries will simply offset newer 

 and better tech with smaller seasons, lower limits and the like?)

 Love the 450hp tho, thats how you beat the seabreeze!

Local dealer too at a guess....seriously does a boat that size need a 225hp let alone 2 off.

Good luck to him!

Wed, 2021-02-24 07:38

Guessing the outboards at 30k each.....boat 20k...plus electronics it would go close to a 100K run about!

Boat

Wed, 2021-02-24 19:12

Edencraft will be a lot more than 20k. 

Waiting list type of boat if you want to get one built.

Would probably be mid 20's foot long too

Nice bus I think it needs more power.....

Tue, 2021-02-23 04:12

Interesting how the GPS antenna is sitting on top of the tranny pole. I suppose they want the exact location of where the lump is?. Most modern gear these days does that for you though, I can scroll back through my sonar history and mark spots. A bit of sunshade over ones head would be nice too.

Silly QuestionBut how does

Tue, 2021-02-23 07:17

Silly Question

But how does that not cause turbulance and hence poor readings at any speed. Looking at that I can see it would only read at low speed.

Or am I wrong with the massive power negating turbulance under the transducer.

 Correct, you only drop it down when hunting turf/fish.. deckies job to pull up before any steep take off.. It's an elite way to get clean water

Looks like it was requested to be taken down.

Wed, 2021-02-24 04:29

Being a free society I can't see the reason why a picture taken in a public place of the rear end of someone's boat should have to be taken down?. I understand there are some nefarious people out there who could possibly want to steal the transducer but that would take a fair bit of detective work to find out where the boat lived based on this one picture. Unless someone chucked a sicky to go fishing!.

Question for you.

How effective is the GPS receiver sitting directly over the transducer?. I'm thinking it would be deadly!.

 Yeh it's mint cobba! It's a Gnss receiver, so tracks about 28 plus sats with clear sky view, so holds a calculated sub 0.8 meter horizontal position accuracy. Can I drive the boat good enough to make that worth it... probably not! Hah

 I know sometimes I move only 100m or so and current is heaps different, but that's on shallow reefs chasing snapper so can understand why.

 Speaking of Snapper nailed a beauty yesterday, along with a nice Duie and sharks. Within the 4 boats out yesterday there were 12 Sharks raised. We had 4 alone, make you wonder that the problem's heading south.

Welcome to Fishwrecked. That's an interesting bit of kit you've got there, have you got it slaved to an autopilot?. Don't be shy to post some stories and pictures of your boating adventures. I'm shit at fishing but at least I'm having fun !.
