I had quite a bit of gear up front Matt, 5 kilo anchor, a bucket with well over 10 lb of lead :oops: plus tackle.


Aha okay well the above advice is sound. Playing around with trim settings can make a real difference is speed and handling but they usualy offset each otger so the happy medium is best.


Think I'll have to have a play next time I'm out Matt. I'll be taking less gear next time so less weight to put up front. I forgot to mention earlier, I also had a full tank up front too...I'll have to spend a few minutes next time I'm out playing with trim before fishing...Should be out again in two weeks.
