Get Reel Video Blog: Dead Reckoning
by John Brownlee

Twice a month, Salt Water Sportsman will post a new video blog from Editor in Chief John Brownlee.

The vids center around useful tactics, techniques, and tips relating to saltwater fishing.

You can see all the videos in one place at Salt Water Sportsman's video page.

In this post, Brownlee discusses Dead Reckoning, which you might remember from Captain's school. This perspective on the navigational term is more relative to fishermen — using the "old school" way to find fishing holes, from lining up channel markers with hotels to palm trees. It also pays to know this old fashion tactic in the extreme case of electronical failures.
