Transducer sled in now working and working good. Pictured is blueball operating the sled. He is the official sled operator.

The sled is about 20 foot back in the picture. Blueball is searching for the lure and weight. The lure is a 300 Bandit and the in line weight is the torpedo type weighing one (1) ounce set out 20 foot aft.

In the sonar picture, you see the sled find both the weight and the bandit. When both the bandit and weight are in the cone angle, you see a solid line on both. The top line is the weight and the bottom line is the bandit.

When both bandit and weight are solid in the cone, blueball jockeys the sled to find minimum depth, thus giving the true depth of both the weight and the bandit. That sled is a complicated little rascal, yet simple to use.

It took about an hour to figure out how to operate all this stuff. We proceeded to chart depths and speeds for the one ounce weight. our speeds were:, 1.2, 1.5, 1.8. 2.1 These are nominal speeds that match the behavior of my trolling motor and my Merc engine.

We are just getting started and have already viewed some interesting characteristics of crank baits. What I discover here will also apply to pushing the crank baits. My TI 33 scientific calculator says so. I will be changing the angle of the poles to see what affect this may have on the baits also. We ran out of time.

Life goes on and the carp grow bigger.

Wow! Looks like a fish arch on one of the sonar pictures also. Thanks for sharing this with all of us.

So the crank bait is about 11 ft deep, right? Wish u had the speed instead of temp on chart..

Speed is being shown on the left corner of the map screen.

Got it, how much line out? Line size? Type?

Sure it took me a few minutes to wrap my brain around it, but that is freaking awesome!! Good jobs guys!!

Fantastic results on a great experiment! I am excitedly awaiting the final data.

For my applications here at Ky Lake, I will chart weights of 1oz, 1 1/2 oz and 2 oz. These weights along with the speeds should give me a good lure of chart. Brenda and I went out this morning "carp charting" and tried out some in line weights. I can make some fairly sharp turns without crossing lines up. What a relief.

I will continue charting when the weather cools down.

One thing we observed was ow the weight reacted with and without a crank bait.

FOR INSTANCE:

We had 10 feet of line out with 1 oz weight only going 1.2 mph. Depth of the weight was 6 feet at 1.2mph.

When we attached the bandit 300 with 3 ft leader, the weight climbed to a 4 foot depth and the Bandit 300 went to 6 foot.

What would you expect to happen if you did this?

This is an interesting project. Wish I were younger.

I would think if you had a grandchild in school somewhere they would have a science project that would blow teachers minds!! Keep it up crappie.com nation is on seats edge.

The projects actually transpired. ha.

One is now a music major from Memphis State and picks a guitar for a living. The other is in a minister and working on his PHD in Louisville at a preacher school there. Granddaughter owns her own business and is a mountain climber. They all fish!!!!!

yep. The line (10# mono) was let out 20 foot. The 20 foot was measured from the weight reeled up to the pole tip, then let out 20 foot. I use a 3 foot leader below the torpedo lead weight. The leader is not included in the line out calculation. 3 foot leaders seems to be a memorandum of understanding that floats the internet.

I have a lot of testing to do.

very cool study that you are doing. I await more from your research and testing

good job sir

He don't need to. He will just go out call Cane and have him tell him which weight and how much line to let out.:Rofl:Rofl
