You will be amazed at the number of fish you will find once you switch over. I bought an 1199 when the prices dropped so low.
One of the best things were the "stumps" that I had fished in the past that were actually old 50' 'trees' laying on the bottom. You could see where the fish were positioned on the tree, before a jig ever went in the water.
The first 5 days after the Weekend are the Hardest.
