Electronics can really make a big difference for boat control and finding fish. A good example is using a Raymarine Axiom to locate a “hot-spot” and then holding right on top of it with a Motorguide electric using its “GPS anchor mode”!
The feature image shows the tracks left by the Motorguide while in GPS anchor mode. You can clearly see how tight the boat was on the structure that held fish.
Every once and a while we would move the boat with the electric just enough to cover a different section of the structure which consistently put us on fish.
Forget about using several hundred feet of anchor line and fighting wind and tide to get close to a spot. Using the Motorguide and Axiom you can do it “easy-piesy”!
