i went out to try a few wrecks yesterday using various soft plastics and p-boy vertical jigs.we had plenty of fish pollack coalfish and whiting in 200ft of water.but what made my day was hundreds of porpoises/dolphins followed us everywhere we went.now i have seen them in the past but not in these numbers and they stuck around for hours.when we would stop they would head off and as soon as we would move again they came back.they seemed very interested in the transducer coming right up to it and touching it.heres a clip of them.

That's interesting, how fast were you working the jigs? I tried it and found you had to slow it up a lot with more emphasis on the flutter...

Nice one Pat. Vertical fishing is one of my favourites. It works in 30ft of water too!

When I bought my first decent sounder the salesman warned me that I would spend a long time looking at it during the first year, and he was right. It is time well spent though.

Ah good man ... look forward to that very much!! I am particularly interested in seeing how the structure scan performs in deeper water drifting wrecks etc.
