Took the new auto pilot trolling motor out on Coralville this morning. My wife's uncle and I caught 17 nice channels with a big of 6+ lbs. The auto pilot makes trolling so much less stressful. Just point it and go. I can even do things like tie hooks and sinkers up while trolling...which was about impossible before. We had bait in the water by 5 am and caught 9 channels on our first troll. By 8 am it was hot. By 10, it was unbearable and we gave up. The surface temp was 87 degrees by then. I think the fish were pretty much broiled as they quit biting as well. I don't know if I'm going to try in the morning or not. Mike.
