Went out with a buddy the other day and when I ran the cable out of the DR it would start humming. It also seemed to be vibrating. Anyone had this happen or know of a way to stop it?

Switch to braided and most of the hum will leave.

Sockeye,
I bought some braided line from Cabelas and really like it. My 14' aluminum would really sing until I put on the braided stuff. Much more quiet. The only problem was the sport troll down riggers I have use a line indicator at the boom head. The cable was too slick to make it work. I bought two spool line indicators that fixed the problem but cost about 40 more bucks.
