Not me. I've only just recently gotten a boat with electronics in it. I was strictly a shallow water specialist fishing out of a 12 ft jon boat. Still managed to have pretty good success though.

i love hitting those 30ft drop offs wiyh worms or jigs
When you fish this deep area, what weight/size jigs do you use? What size bullet weights do you use on your worm? Last year I started fishing a deep lake and I had better luck with cranks in deeper water. I was wondering if I was too light with my worm rig.

JDIH, one thing i look at is the current if any, i try to stick with the lightest i can use, slow fall, just keeping the line tight going down, majority of my big fish i have caught never let it hit the bottom, i watch the line fall and if i see it change during the fall, im setting the hook!

most i have used in water with heavy current myself was 3/4 ounce, i try to stick with 1/4 ounce

One of the places I fish does not have heavy current but the other place does. I fish the Tenn-Tom a lot around Columbus and I started fish Bay Springs Lake last year. I can say I learned something new every time I went out on Bay Springs. I have always been a pond fisherman with plastics and I struggled going to a big lake at first but by the end of the summer I was starting figure it out!!
