Got the HDS8's mounted and fully wired.
The ethernet and NMEA2000 setup really works sweet.
Also got the FishHawk mounted and wired and one downrigger wired before the sky opened up.
Supposed to rain thru the night.
Hopefully we can get that last rigger done sometime tomorrow.
I loaded up all of the rods into the truck.
I will restring them all this week at home.
I gotta go out fishing before I kill something.

A few recent pix
Almost ready to fish
Coming back on Wednesday night to finish up that last downrigger and mount the 2 bank charger up in the Cuddy.  Will need to pull 4 wires to the transom where to main batteries are but we pulled a fish when we pulled the transducersí cables.

With the new (old) boat, I decided to restring all my trolling rods.
So I brought all 19 home yesterday.
So tonight I went out to the garage, turned on the tunes, and got to work.
Did the 2 new downrigger rods with 30# braid and 30' of 20# flourocarbon for a leader.
Did the leadcore rods.
Two 6 color rods and two 4 color rods
Each gets 30# braid, then 27# leadcore with a 30' leader of 20# flourocarbon.
I use uni to uni knots as they are very strong.
I'm getting pretty good at typing them.  lol
Tomorrow I'm going to tie up 2 leadcore rigs, one with 2 colors and the other with 1 color.
These will be for browns in the spring or if we ever decide to send out some lines high for a few steelhead.
They can also be used off the riggers too.
That little bit of lead causes a really nice undulation to the lure.
Charter Captains call it the "Secret Weapon".
Will also need to string up 2 dipsey rods.
Straight 30# braid on these.
And the rest will be strung with 30# and a 30' of 20# flouro for the leader.
These will be used as flatlines and I can add snap weights to them when/if needed.

Got the rest of the rods restrung tonight.
Next day or two I'll retie all of our snap-on leaders.
Making progress.

However, we are putting off finishing the boat till Saturday because I cannot go fishing Saturday.
Our room and roof for the new place is arriving this Thursday and Friday.
They will be installing it on Saturday and Sunday.
Donna wants me around.
So there's no sense running out there tomorrow night to finish the boat as originally planned.
I can work on the boat while our room is being constructed.
Fishing waits another week.
Sigh!

I blew my knee out last night.
My "good" one.
 :-\


I might as well winterize the darn thing now.
I'll never get out in it fishing this year.

What does that mean? ďYou blew out your kneeĒ

What did you do to it?
