Salsa they used to make a 84 inch which I have 2 of. I have been searching for a matching one for a while. On Sunday my blazer bay was .5 to .6 . I imagine your sea cat would need more.

Been debating on what to get and glad I waited. Heads-up that Cabela's has the Pro Series on sale. Savings almost paid for both harnesses.

Ok got another question. It's obvious that most people use big socks. Is it possible to go too big?

I always hear you need to be drifting at .5 mph or less. So I would think the bigger the sock, the slower you will drift, the better. Am I right?

I prefer to drift between .5 and 1 mph and sometimes even faster. The fish don't have any issues catching up to the bait and I like to cover water. I prefer multiple drift socks so that I can use just enough to slow me down to the speed I want.

Gotta figure out what the fish want!! I drift right at .7 to .8 when i drift. If im running .5 or slower i turn my trolling motor on and lock it to the straight-line course to get me up to speed. Not saying it doesn't work but 1 mph and over seem too fast
