HappySnag- Nice job!. I enjoy your posts. Do you really count your casts? Slow retrieve?
it come to around 50 cast an hour..
it depend on wind how long is cast 90' is 30 time turn crank on the reel.it help when you fish in dark.you know when the lure will hit rock.if i do not tolk i count every cast my turns.
if my longest cast is 90',i cast and count the turns on reel.if i count 10 and have hit,i know the fish are 60' out,somtime it is single fish and some time it is school off fish,you have multiple hits..
if i do not count and i hit fish i start counting turns it tels me how far are fish.
when i cast i remember where i cast and hit fish,from 9 a clock to 3 a clock.
if you look in navionic map and locate structure,when i count i know when i am coming on structure with lure,and if i have hit i know if thet hit was before,on top or after structure.
when you look you can see only water,but when you count you can see in your brain 3D map.
