got to the river at 6.15,surpisingly no one was the there.there were some fish breaking both up and down river.i fished downriver openning day,so i decieded to go above the bridge this time.it took an hour befor i landed a fish,had many misses,they were hitting very lite.i ended up landind 2 back to back and that was it.left at 8;30 to due some yardwork
Thanks for the help.last Thing if you dont mind .It says 625 cranking amps .Is that ok or should I get a deep cell instead. My question is do they both last about the same time and will the cranking amps affect anything. Thanks alot for the info
