Got alittle extra money to waste...looking at buying a ultrex or a 12" graph. For guys that already have both which 1 do you think helps you catch more fish?

Best money invested in my boat was the trolling motor with the ability to anchor in place, mines an Xi5 but I’d say easily the ultrex over the graph.

Without a doubt it would be an ultrex.

you can't buy an ultrex for $1300. but if I were you I'd wait a couple of months and spend 3 grand plus installation and get a ghost.

and actually I am waiting until October to get the newest technology.

* spending money on things that bring you joy is not wasting money
Anchoring tm is more practical than 12” graphs

Fishing gear does start to go on deep clearance mid Nov to March

If you wait a little bit, you might be able to get both

Kinda depends on what you trolling motor and electronics you already have before anyone could logically answer that question.

If you already have a Terrova iPilot and a POS electronics id say 12"

If you have a 10" Solix DI and a POS TM id say an Ultrex.


GOD is good!

Depends on what you have to work with now. What kind of trolling motor and graphs are you currently running?

IMO the order of importance as far as helping ME catch fish:

1. Good Map Chip or software to stay on offshore structure
2. Spot-Lock

and a distant #3

3. Graph
