    If you want to stay in the lowrance family, you can find the Elite9 with totalscan for under a grand and the Hook9 for about $700. Humminbird wise(which, in my opinion, is far more advanced in technology from what I've seen......and I'm a lifelong lowrance guy) you can find the Helix9 chirp for under $800. Not up to speed on Garmin or raymarine units, but I hear they're really nice units.

    +1000000 Steve!! Nailed it. Older engines (pre DFI all brands) can have VRO style oil tanks disconnected & run premixed fuel. Actually, this is a more reliable set up. However, there is a HUGE difference between a VRO oil tank & a remote oil tank on a DI model motor.

    Gotta be carful what motor you choose to do that to. Idk about the Venom, but like newer direct injected engines it would do more harm than good. Reason being is the fuel is not cycled through the entire crankcase, like it is on older traditional 2 strokes. No fuel through the crankcase= no oil through the crankcase. Oil is instead injected separately into the crankcase. Some of the older EFI motors were setup in a similar way. Fuel is injected with air into the intake port, so most the oil will get combusted instead of first making its way through the crank. Just a thought.

    I agree with everything you said, but i will add some to it. Chartreuse is a good color in any water color or clarity. Don't just use deep crankbaits for deep cranking. I will throw a 6XD in 5' or less. It makes them run very erratic & stir up a bunch of junk. They also deflect esp well in shallower water. Both of which can get a ton of bites.

    Its a bait thats made to fish slow, and in cooler water. Early spring when fish are staging up to spawn is when it shines.

    I personally drastically increased my percentages when I started casting parallel or angled to the bank, vs straight at the bank. I’m no expert, but I believe it keeps the bait in the depth range for a much greater amount of time.

    Loudoun is the easiest lake anywhere near Knoxville to fish. I love that lake. Of course I grew up on it

    I’ve never fished any of the Knoxville area lakes. Coming to Norris next weekend for the first time. I’d like to visit Melton and try to catch a musky.

    Loudoun is also my favorite hole, but since I live near Morristown now, I hardly ever get down there.

    Just read an interesting comment from a woman in Florida who asks why the 2nd Amendment hasn't been repealed in light of recent mass killings. Guns, in her mind, are causing all of these tragedies. Eliminate the guns and you eliminate the problem. She didn't mention anything about knives, explosive booby traps, landmines, or poisons . . . I wonder if she'll do the natural follow-up and demand cars be declared illegal. After all, drunk and inattentive drivers kill more people than shooters do. We should hold car manufacturers accountable for their blatant disregard for human life. And what about alcohol? It was outlawed once, you know. Why isn't alcohol being declared illegal again in light of so many people dying of addiction related conditions? Damn booze makers - we should jail them all. It's their fault. And then there are the drug makers. Drugs are already illegal (for the most part) yet we don't go after drug makers like the public is going after gun manufacturers right now. It is, after all, their fault people are becoming addicted. The doctors who prescribe them are complicit, too. So are the nurses, PAs, and rehab staff. Jail all of them while we're at it. Franklin Graham - Billy's son - had an interesting comment on this horrific event. His observation was nowhere in the discussion is the role of evil thought or impetus. While we charge off into the sunset looking to blame someone or something for all of this needless suffering we run right past the cause of it all - Satan. And while we scurry about dodging and attributing blame Satan just smiles.

    There are a couple different ways to peg a bait-weight combo and i know most folks use a toothpick, some use the rubber inserts and then there is the Florida weights which is my choice if and when I decide to peg a weight. I have never been much of a fan of the toothpick cause it puts added pressure to the line at that union. The Rubber is better but it but does not hold as well. I know the Florida weight systems cost a little more but no more than I use them I find it worth the difference..............JMHO
