I use one of these http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00004XSC3/002-6156529-6162465?v=glance It’s a standard kitchen thermometer. It works well. My only complaint is it’s easy to turn it on by accident. I just found mine with a dead battery.
The same thing just happened to me, dead battery. Luckily I had a REI keychain thermometer that I used to complete a survey. I guess I’m still in the market for a thermometer (doesn’t have to be digital). I don’t want to wonder if the thermometer will be turned on by accident.
I’m happy to announce that using single hooks, stronger line, better-placed casts and smarter retrieves have all resulted in fewer snags. Thanks for the advice.
Surprisingly, the biggest impact is the Curtis Raft. When I get hung up, I just paddle to the opposite side of the snag, pull and I’m free. I love this thing. Not only do I get better access to fish and a relaxing time on the water, I save money on not having to replace lures.
Thanks for the help. I placed my order yesterday.
“Thanks for the good advice. I'm going to replace the treble hooks with singles and will try the fly/bubble technique in addition to using lures. If anyone has any tips for fly/bubble fishing, please let me know. I'm also thinking about experimenting with the Fireline. Brian, please let us know how it works out for you.”
