I really like all of this feedback...great stuff Chris! I really need to try to invest in the Navionics maps on my phone, so I can do a better job about following the ledge. It makes it difficult when I'm not using a tolling motor, and I'm by myself. If I had a Navionics map, I think I may be able to pull it off.
That's a good thought about catching the cats Tx Tree. I would think those cats are always hungry. It's just a matter of having some bait for them. Definitely rather hook up on the stripers, but if I'm taking out some friends just looking for action, it's a solid back up plan later in the morning.
If anyone has any other good tips, keep'em coming...I like this thread!
