I'd love to see your setup too if you're willing to post it.

If not, I'd sure appreciate at PM as well.

Thanks,

Jack plates great, they have a lot of benefits, but I don't think installing one will be of much help when it comes to what you're trying to accomplish.

I'm not sure that adapter exists, I kinda doubt it, I don't think the Splitshot transducer would be compatible with an HDS unit. It's a single frequency transducer. Even if it does work, I'd advise...

I tried a ton of rods for jigging raps/shiver minnows before I found one I really liked.

Without a doubt the best rods I've tried are the Shimano Zodias series. They're not cheap, but the spiral...

Keeping them pretty is the same regardless of glass/aluminum or brand. They all take a few minutes and some elbow grease.

The only way I can see this being a factor is if you have a kicker with a tie bar to the Verado for steering. In that case, if the Verado isn't running but you're using the Verado power steering to...

Another vote for the Toro. The one handed chute control, steering levers, and over design/quality are all big factors. I love mine, it's been bulletproof and moved a lot of snow for 10+ years.
