Hey thanks all, just picked up the inflatable is-12, last week couldn't use it out on Lake Don Pedro, Ca (knee injury
). But knee is getting better. I enjoy fishing Lake Tahoe. If you're fishing for Mackinaw,or Browns in the summer that will require some depth. I've looked at release clips, and various methods of getting down deeper. I'd like the capability to get to 200 feet. I can with 150 braid on the Scotty Lake Troller.
Here's the 64K question. Will the hobie mount, i purchased for the Scotty Rod Holder (the lake troller fits that mount
) stand up to a 3 or 4 pound ball hanging down by the braid on a troll?
I've emailed Hobie on the contact email on this, but thought i'd throw it out to anyone that does any deeper lake trolling on an inflatable.
Thanks for any info on this. Btw, i have other ideas i've seen on forums, old tuna rod shortened up, with a roller guide tip and a 2-3 pound ball, etc.
