    I have the newer high torque motor and have a 40amp fuse on 12gauge wire. Never blown fuse. Remember the heat generated in a wire is a factor of both the wire gauge and return length. If you scotty lines aren't very long, which they shouldn't be, and they are at least 12gauge or better, you should have no problems with a 40amp fuse.

    After 15 years of river fishing, this ocean geography is new to me.
    Where are "the falls" and "grace" ?

    Falls are just north of tunstall along the west side of Bowen. Grace Islands they’re referring to. Southwest corner off Gambier.

    Windy app lies... today at least. I’ve got occasional water coming over the bow between the North Arm and Bowen because of a beefy Howe Sound outflow. Steep waves with a quick frequency = gross. Probably going to turn around. Stay safe out there!

    Thanks for posting. I checked windy also and was just about to hook up the trailer when I checked this.

    Stay safe man. Definitely a washing machine though that stretch with the right wind and tides. Should die down after lunch.
    From what I can see on windfinder that looks about right IMO.

    Fished waterfalls and around Defence today. The Orcas came and put on a show at the waterfalls but that was the closest we had to a fish to the boat. We moved and spent the afternoon at Defense..marked huge bait balls and did our best to stay on them but left without a sniff. Still a beauty flat calm day on the sound!

    Well there is lots of chovies out there in WR for sure and they have been there for 6 weeks. Quite the show. I work out there and there is more people down these days to see the show than the nicest days of summer go figure.
    The area these schools are located in is really shallow only 1-3 feet deep so I dont there there are too many salmon around . Perhaps there a few out past the drop off who knows
