Does your fish finder help you catch salmon in the salt? If your fish finder was actually only able to show you the bottom, depth and maybe speed but couldn't show you any bait or larger fish how much worse do you think your performance in Puget Sound would be? My fish finder has always been bad--doesn't seem to work properly, shows bait sometimes but almost never bigger fish. (I've sought help, lots of help, done with that). Despite not ever seeing large fish, I seem to catch my fair share of salmon relative to folks who also fish semi-regularly. I strongly suspect that lousy fish finder/sticky sharp hook will result in as many fish as great fish finder/sorta sharp hook. What do you think?
