    Question i Pilot

    I'm thinking about buying an i pilot TM and was wanting to get some advice. 99% of the time we vertically fish jigs over stake beds. Seems like the i pilot would benefit spider riggers the most? How well does it do at keeping you in 10 ft area in say a 10 mph wind? Would I still need to use marker floats?

    Thanks

    Within 10 feet? Not according to my experience. 20 feet would be more realistic. I'd yes to still needing marker buoys too. BUT, there are so many features to that motor that make it well worth the money.

    Should work fine. Mine does. If you want to verify it go with someone that has it and drop a marker and put it on anchor to see it work.

    Whether or not i keeps you in place so must while jigging isnt the issue, its what it does while your landing a fish, taking it off the hook, re-rigging, getting something out of the storage compartment, turning on a livewell pump, taking a leak and the list goes on and on. Once you get used to using your auto pilot and anchor features you will be wondering how you ever done without it.

    I just purchased a Terravo with IPilot already installed from Cabelas. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but according to the info that came with it, by using the spot lock feature it will hold you to within five feet of where you set the lock. Hope this helps
