Sorry dave I thought that was the second time you told me that i was wasting my time without sonar. someone else told me to go home if i didn't have sonar but i thought it was you. i wasn't trying to insult you personally i just know that from experience that you can still get into some fish without sonar. if this was true then how did people fish without it before it became available for us to mount it on our boats and find them? also it is my personal belief that it is kinda of lame if a person isn't willing to fish just because the boat isn't outfitted with sonar. I plan on trolling for fall chinook on the siusla this year probably without sonar and i think i will do alright. My dad used to do it all the time in the early 80's without sonar and he did alright. This winter i do plan on giving my boat a serious makeover and sonar is on the top of the list. I've just been getting really s***y cards delt to me in life since december and can't afford sonar now but i'm still going to fish. And i do appreciate all the advice you guys give. I deffinantly going to be doing some casting. I seen some areas up there last time that would be great to try that in. This is a method i have tryed many times in the local lakes when i see a good opportunity for it or trolling isn't working out so well. and we don't want this to turn into a thread like that other one.18406ej said:Gentlemen, a lot of times an off-the-cuff comment can be misinterpreted, as I hope is the case here. I am sure that Thuggin4Life did not mean his comment to be as rude as it sounded. We don't want to start sounding like the participants in other fishing forums, do we?
Fishtopher said:Right on man. Cards, cruddy cards, or no cards at all, (or no sonar at all), fish like theres no tomorrow! Good luck out there!
