I have data that looks like

Year,Recruit,Spawner,Mtempcv
1958,4532,775,0.24125
1959,22996,2310,0.16319
1960,628,2990,0.46056
1961,879,1400,0.33028
1962,14747,1130,0.22618
1963,13205,790,0.20596
1964,31793,1195,0.19229
1965,10621,981,0.20363
1966,22271,870,0.3452
1967,8736,1104,0.27511
1968,8761,883,0.10884
1969,18885,1421,0.17799
1970,10098,1198,0.2106
1971,3394,760,0.22098
1972,1697,1354,0.39461
1973,25159,1308,0.19696

[truncated]

with program

#Ricker Curve
mod2=nls(Recruit~(Spawner*exp((delta+echo*Spawner)+(foxtrot*Mtempcv))), data=box48,

    start=list(delta=4, echo=0, foxtrot=-7), trace=TRUE) plot(Recruit~Spawner, data=box48, pch=19) mod2a=seq(369, 3000)
lines(mod2a, predict(mod2, list(Spawner=mod2a)), col="red", lty=2)

R has no problem finding a solution to the nls() model (only 7 iterations are needed), but when I try to plot the line on the requested plot, I get the warning message "Warning message: In (delta + echo * Spawner) + (foxtrot * Mtempcv) :   longer object length is not a multiple of shorter object length."

R tries to plot the line, but it appears as just a mess of vertical lines that get more dense where (I would imagine) the actual line is to go. Any ideas what may be causing this issue?

Thanks for your help,
