Just saw this canoe posted my first canoeing trip in the member reports http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=90813 It was interesting! I've been bankfishing for catfish most the year and the canoe has Broadened my horizons. There are definite limitations, I hadn't appreciated but I am now convinced the added mobility and ability to cover the river makes it worth it. I was wondering if you guys could comment on some of the problems I was having...perhaps you have some ideas to share about them Snagging. my first and most annoying problem with the canoe was that Anchored the canoe swayed in the wind and current. With my carolina rig, if I was near any snaggish bottom- after a few of these moments the whole setup was snagged. I compensated by finding less-snaggish bottoms usually in heavier current. Pulling Snags. Was A pain in the Arse!:angry: A determined pull on the pole usually caused the canoe to swing. pulling hard, the boat would start to swing oscillate, swinging one way into it ran into the line and then pulling the other way. Usually trying to pull out one snag caused another one on the other pull. Reach. 14" of canoe yet I felt like I could only reach to 3-4' away before I had to come to a more upright position, which wouldn't have been wise in a laden down canoe, on the river, in the dark. I think I'm just going to have to deal with this one! Subtle bites. Are hard. you've got the swaying canoe... usually there a nice adventage for guessing what pole is about to go off and having it in your hands. also since the canoe gives, the hook site just isn't as powerful as on land. Does this mean circle hooks are even better when out on a canoe than on shore??? Anchor line. heres a dumb one, you've got to have like a lot of feet of anchor line to make sure you can hold in the deepest hole on the river. BUT on the other hand , a wound coil of anchor line seemed to inevitable twist into miles of knots. Then you've got like 6" of anchor line:tounge_out: is there a better way Light. ok, here's probably a bad thing to admit, but I pulled the canoe thing off with just a little flashlight. IT was really dark:smile2: and half the time the flashlight would fall in the bottom of the canoe and roll beyond reach. I think the rules actually require a light visible for 360° but a lantern on a canoe would be a disaster; as any little rolling motion would surely knock it over. So do you guys have mounts? well enough for now... I'd appreciate any insight.
