Breakline
A line of abrupt change in depth like a large flat that drops off into a
creek channel or a ditch running through an otherwise level bottom. It
can also be associated with water clarity; the breakline would be the
point where you can no longer see your bait.

Break Line = Change in structure

I'm glad you posted lipripper, because we can have a whole discussion of what us anglers term as structure. Is it a hump, a ditch or a rock pile etc? Or is it a patch of milfoil, hydrilla or some other type of vegetation? Or is it both? Or is vegetation considered cover and a permanent year round "mass thing", "contour" or a "heavy fallen object" considered structure? so what's a breakline?

So many questions that need to be answered??? :exhausted: :oy:

We often have a tendency to over complicate terminology, the term "structure" simply means one thing, the lakes bottom, a breakline is also simple, it is the sudden change in an area that is otherwise uniform.

A breakline can be water, vegetation and or structurally oriented.

Porpoising
It is when the boats bow bounces up and down while on plane, it usually happens when the boat is over trimmed. If you start to experience it trim your motor down and it should stop it

Lake Turnover
Lake turnover is the process of a lake's water turning over from top (epilimnion) to bottom (hypolimnion). During the summer, the epilimnion, or surface layer, is the warmest. It is heated by the sun. The deepest layer, the hypolimnion, is the coldest. The sun's radiation does not reach this cold, dark layer.

During the fall, the warm surface water begins to cool. As water cools, it becomes more dense, causing it to sink. This dense water forces the water of the hypolimnion to rise, "turning over" the layers.

Lateral line
The lateral line system allows the detection of movement, vibration, and pressure gradients in the water surrounding an animal, providing spatial awareness and the ability to navigate in the environment. This plays an essential role in orientation, predatory behavior, defense, and social schooling.

The lateral line system is necessary to detect vibrations made by prey, and to orient towards the source to begin predatory action. Fish are able to detect movement, produced either by prey or a vibrating metal sphere, and orient themselves toward the source before proceeding to make a predatory strike at it

Offshore structure fishing = any area of fishing that requires a vessel to reach beyond the capability of shoreline angling.

"Rip Rap"
Piles of loose stones normally used around dams, bridges, stream beds to help protect against water an ice erosion.
It also is favorable place for fish to congregate because the stones hold heat and also offer places to hide.

Sorry Lip, I see you posted this one already but I may have added a small bit of embellishment to it

Leader

A short length of material for attaching the end of a fishing line to a lure. Mostly made of fluorocarbon because of it's invisibility and faster sink rate.
It is also helpful when attached to braid and fishing in deep water. If you get hung up or snagged, it will break off so you don't have to loose a lot of line.

Carolina Rig (c rig)

 A style of terminal tackle normally used to keep your bait or lure off the bottom (depth of fish). This is most commonly used with  plastics, but can be used with hard baits, such as crankbaits and other lures as well. A variety of weights can be use, depending on how fast you want the bait to fall.  The weight is placed first, followed by a bead, and then a swivel is tied to the end of the line. Once the weight, bead, and swivel is attached to the line, a piece of line generally 18 to 30 inches long is then tied to the other end of the swivel and a hook or lure is tied to this end of the line (liter).  The Carolina rig is excellent for fishing ledges, points, sandbars, and humps.
