Here's 3 consecutive screen shots, (check the time and boat location on each shot), of how great the Lowrance OEN 200kHz transducer is now operating.

This fish was ever so curious. I got him there with a Sling Blade but he didn't want my bait.

Edd,

Love screen shots, especially one's that identify what is going on down below. that is sweet. let me ask a few questions about what I see.

assuming I am seeing 4 riggers, if yes, what kind/size of downrigger balls?
any ball flashers?

Let me guess if I may.....the port rod has attracted the mark?

What i see on the gps is telling me this, not what i see on the FF. this of course doesnt mean it cant be the starboard side. I am speculating the turn to the port i see as dictated by the black arrow on the gps stopped and dropped the offering enough to put the fish on it (kind of like adjusting speeds up and down, or neutral for a second then back in gear.) just a hunch as to what was going on down there.

Edd,

This is awesome stuff. What do you do when you get a follower for 2-3 minutes like that? I know that a lot of folks slow down, but I've found that bumping the throttle for a sec to speed up a little, like the bait is fleeing, sometimes educes them into striking.

Perfect theory but it was the starboard (right or green) side boom rigger. Not 4 riggers, but 3, and at about 10 feet you can faintly see the Dipsy Diver.

@ Wes, we tried faster and slower. I almost had enough time to bring it in and change scent :grin:. From experimenting I have found the double line shows the weight and the Sling Blade, but I can't remember which line is which. Seems that, in the lower case, 45' is the weight and SB is above it. I almost always fish at 5' breaks like, 25, 35, 40, 30.
