Using a Chart Plotter to Control Your Drift
Capt. Billy Harbaugh studied the chart-plotter screen before committing to a second drift. On our initial, fishless pass over the live bottom in 180 feet of water in the Atlantic waters off Islamorada, Florida, the combined current and wind swung the boat wide of prime fish-holding area. Having missed the spot, Harbaugh made note of our drift track on the chart plotter, calculated the proper adjustments, and motored to a new starting point.
