One additional comment I would add is the amount of distance between waves. I have been on Erie in 6 footers and only had to slowly drive the waves because there was sufficient distance between waves. I have also been on Erie in 3 footers that were so close together that I had to get off the water.

Just remember the phone doppler will be lagging about 15-20 minutes. Sorry, that's all I can offer, these other guys give much better advice on boat driving.

Ok, I've just read this entire post and one thing I don't see mentioned is fuel consumption. When it gets rough and your constantly throttling up the back side of a wave and throttle down when running down, your going to use a lot more fuel than you think. Especially if your off shore and need to make any type of run. So always top off your tank before you go out and never use 1/4 tank to run to fish, no more than 1/4 tank to fish, and always keep at least a 1/2 tank to get back.

Tight lines guys...stay safe out there.
