Muskies can hide pretty well for their size, so finding them can be tough! Once you find them, you also have to stealthily move around to get into the perfect casting position. Let’s see how Pete conquers both of these problems:
Lowrance HDS-10 Gen2 Fishfinder/Chartplotter
The HDS-10 Gen2 has intuitively simple operation through the combination of an easy-to-understand menu system, plus programmable soft keys for instant display of favorite page views.
Available in a variety of transducer-pack options:
- 83/200 kHz for inland/freshwater uses.
- 50/200 kHz for deeper Great Lakes/coastal saltwater uses
- Also compatible with Airmar® in-hull or thru-hull transducers for up to 1 kW operation – for deeper, saltwater applications
Two waterproof SD card slots to load high-detail charting options. Users can also and save sonar and navigational data, and upload future HDS software feature updates.
MotorGuide Wireless Freshwater Trolling Motor
MotorGuide now gives you precise wireless control with complete freedom of movement. Freshwater Wireless comes standard with a Wireless Foot Pedal, the industry’s smoothest stow and deploy, four remote inputs, built-in removable mount, rough-water lower-unit cradle, and an integrated battery indicator.
The 200-kHz sonar transducer crystal is forged at 20-degrees to provide incredible detail and is epoxy-potted in the nose cone for maximum protection. Combined with a build-in temperature sensor, your motor is compatible with most Lowrance units.
Looking for strength? MotorGuide’s Wireless Edition composite shaft is beefed up with a larger diameter and is 33% stronger than competitor’s composite shafts. Bring on the open water.
