    I won't say that my spot lock has paid for itself, but it will in time if I don't master pulling cranks. Spot lock is just the ticket for holding the boat steady as I deploy the lure knocker to retrieve snagged lures.
    I just might have to book another trip with M R Dux to learn "cranking 102", having graduated from the 101 course.

The TM head will, of course, rotate back forward once it is settled. I find this technique very helpful allowing me to approach quickly, slow appropriately, and be on the waypoint (or brush) without undue turbulence from the TM prop, all without taking a lot of time to do it.

    There is definitely an art to starting up the spot lock function. Like you said it works best to creep up on the spot. I have an Ulterra with a Cable Saver from Cornfield Crappie Gear. It'll try to tie that cable saver in a knot if I don't do it right. I did figure out when it gets all twisted up to "unlock" then once the head turns back to the normal position, to hit spot lock again.

    It doesn't like these all metal pole and roof floating marinas when it is in anchor lock. It went from calm and staedy to insane and trying to ram the dock. Glad I had the foot pedal attached. I smacked the anchor lock button and disconnected. Stuck my foot out to push off the dock when it came up. Wooden docks are golden. Guess maybe I got the roof between me and the satellite I was locked onto. It was an insanely widny day and I would not have shot docks without it.
    :I would like to thank the builders of docks for giving me a place to fish and lose tackle
