Well, other than the hot weather, it hasn't been too bad. I moved down in 2010, have had to endure 1 hurricane since I have been here and the worst part of that was cleaning up the tree limbs from my neighbors tree's that blew into my yard. There are a lot of places down here to chase bass, really what I do miss is the change of seasons we used to get in Maryland- unless you live up near the panhandle we don't get much color change here in Central Florida. I don't miss the winters, usually February is when we get winter here and even then the temp is still in the high 60's low 70's and there is NO snow to shovel!

No problem, Bud. A little almond extract rubbed on your body and you can easily pass for an arab. I teach you enough Russian to order vodka and buy drinks----everybody will love you. Once the vodka flows, no one can speak well enough to be understood anyway. You could live there for years on just those few phrases. lol

I've only fished alewife water one time. There are probably anglers on UB who can tell you about alewife movement through the day and seasons. The dense band was the school. If you have your electronics on auto-----switch it to manual. Scroll through the settings leaving them as they are except for signal strength. A bait school's edges are poorly defined as the school and individual bait fish are constantly moving. By changing the signal strength you can eliminate clutter. This will help define the school's shape for you. Wish I could help more but I've run out of alewife wisdom. By the way, I do agree with your thoughts.

basss  I think you need to pay a little more attention to the Dobyns rods designations. 

Both of the rods you are asking about are spinning rods. A SA 702SF is a 7 foot 2 power medium light spinning rod. The "SF" stands for spinning fast action taper.
The SSM 702SF is a Savvy micro guided 7 foot 2 power ( medium light) spinning fast action rod.

If you are looking for a rod to match up with that JDM baitcasting reel I suggest you look at either going with one of those spinning rods or look at a Champion XP series DC 702C.  That is the lighter action rod.
I know lots of guy that throw weightless stuff on a 703C as well.

Before I spent a dime on any Dobyns rod ( and I love them) give Gary or Richard a call at the factory.  Tell them exactly what you are looking to do with this rod and follow their advice.  They love to help customer and they know their product.

Ugggh ... you're right. I ordered a spinning rod for my baitcasting reel. When it rains ...

Thank you for pointing that out, I'll take another look.

Awesome!!!!  I can't thank you enough, I was planning on spending the weekend dragging the batteries to the bow and playing with jumpers until something worked!

I have the 4 pronged plug and no switch, so the 24V it is.  So, maybe, I'll get to spend part of the weekend making sure it floats instead of chasing electrons!

I was able to go fishing last night from about 9:00-2:00. One of my primary goals was to try to identify large forage schools in the main lake channel.

I believe I found two big schools of baitfish (most likely alewives). They appeared to be a very dense band right along the thermocline.  I had difficulty finding the edge of these bands; however, I could definitely tell when I was over the most dense portion of the school. My front unit would sometimes show a reading of 22í while the graph was marking the bottom at 70+ feet. I assume this was due to the density of the baitfish. There was  with a thick red band at 22í . I could occasionally see arches below the red band. I tried vertical jigging spoons and a ĺ oz fly, but no fish.

I donít know how deep these fish were during the day, but as noted in the post above, they probably rose up to the thermocline at dark. Also, I think it is possible the thermocline could have been a barrier for the baitfish to rise any higher in the water column (bait fish are known to be sensitive to thermal shock caused by drastic temperature changes). Typically, the temperature just below the thermocline is in the mid-70ís. The temperature above the thermocline last night was in the mid-80ís. I have notes saying that about 77 degrees is the maximum temperature for adult alewives. So, Iím thinking the bait fish rose, but hit a temperature wall.

Iím still trying to figure all of this out. Please agree or disagree with anything Iíve written.
