I use my terrova for that very thing in the Summer, works great and makes it easier to keep up with em. the cruise control and follow the contour are perfect for that type of fishing. I assume the xi5 has all those features as well. You will really love those machines

Liketofishalot, Absolutely! I've had great success with the xi5 live bait fishing at possum kingdom suspending perch in my rod holders. I anchor on a school and when the school moves I troll the contour and stop when I find them again, some of the biggest hits have been during my move from point A to B. Love it! Great for turning the non fishing members of my family into catchers because about the time it gets boring and they start moving around the boat their rod tip buries under the water surface. Also, I find the navionics boating app very helpful in conjunction with my elite7. I keep the elite7 on sonar, and my phone as my countour guide...sit nice and comfortable like on the leaning post while I let the trolling motor and baits work.
