    I have two handheld GPS units and use one of them in conjunction with the Lowrance as a backup. My eyes are not what they used to be and the boat is 20 ft long, so I can pick up the handheld and see what speed. Since my kicker motor is controlled by a Panther I can walk around a little with the controller in my hand with the speed set on the control arm of the kicker........Jetspray

I started trolling top line at Pyramid with a 100' set back and now I'm at 170' set back. Seems the more line I let out the more hits I get?

While setting up at the ramp my buddy realized that he forgot his fish finder. We had no choice but to fish old school good thing we know the lake very well. We pretty much had the lake to ourselves. Just a couple of boats and very few shore anglers.
    My buddy counted 28 and I counted 27 to the boat with a lot of doubles. When we found them it was on. The biggest was just over 6 1/2 pounds a lot of 4 pounders with a few little 19 inchers in the mix. It was definitely a spoon bite, they got 80% of the fish. We trolled the spoons on top set back 300' and 400'. On the downriggers we ran 3.5 mag lips, u20 flat fish, GVF draggins, and few other things. It was hard to take photos because when we got into them it wasn't just one. But I did manage to get a few.
