  1. Bahajoe - I think its 9 up front and 14 behind. I think as long as there is a 5" difference your good.
  2. Yeah! I ran Scotty's all year last year and never once had a ball bangin experience. But they sure are fast to re-set. Open the clutch ad as fast as they can fall they fall, and I have never had a lure come up and catch the cable. I have had weeds collect on the cable and move the beads. That sux!
  3. Single rod holders with a 45deg angle. $40 for the pair shipped. 4 rod rodholder. Great to store rods out of the way. $75 OBO Home made double for a cannon downrigger. $30 shipped
  4. Hey bro! AS much as I would like to stay with Daiwa I think Im gonna have to invest in Penns. Daiwas might fit up to 300' of copper with backing and leader.
  5. Tommy, R u guys using short or long sticks with this stuff? I am ordering the new Daiwa 7' core rods to replace 10' diver rods I was using.
  6. 2 of them in very good condition. Ued for core the past few years, and slightly used for mono dipseys prior to the core. $40 for the pair
  7. Pics available if interested. Would be nice for a hardtop or the back downrigger plate. Nice shape! $75
  8. One reel left and one heartland. The rod has a missing butt piece, but other than that is in good working shape. $60 takes it
  9. Thats part of a sexy boat next to the 288 in the first picture!
  10. Hey Rob, I dont know if Im going to sell you but I will let you in on why Im running it. For one I fell in love with lead core last year. It was 2 more rods in a stealth mode running in the strike zone. For spring and fall it was a great producer. A full core is 300'. I can achieve the same depth with 200' of copper. So for customers and tournaments that is 100' less we have to reel in. As for the 600' copper which has become popular in the Eastern Basin you can achieve depths of up to 130' with a spoon. Now Ernie marked the copper every 50'. Say your going along and you mark a fish at 90'. That would equate to about 400' of copper. You can run to the back of the boat and adjust your copper to 400'. If that King doesnt take your offering from the riggers and Dipseys this rig will come in all by itself a long time after everything else and possibly catch you a fish you would have passed up. This is critical during busy days when there are a lot of balls and dipseys running through the water. I am also going to make some diferent sections to pull behind boards. I would like to, and this depends on capitol to buy the reels, add a 100 foot sections for cohos and bows, im replacing my core with 2 - 200' sections, a 300' section, and a 400' section. If I run these off boards I can cover, stealthy, the water column from 20' to 100'. Ernie says at 2.7 SOG you can achieve 22' down per 100' of copper out pulling a spoon. So there ya go!
  11. Welland Canal! With the way the weather is going they wont be in America yet, unfortunately.
  12. U know, becasue your all cops! Or becasue Augie would have drowned the poor Sheriff!
  13. You two would have weasled your way out of it anyway! Your lucky if you were doing 15mph! Im fishing the Perchmaster classic with him Saturday on Seneca lake. Boy is he going to have a cold face when Im doing 65 in 40 degree weather . Any perch secrets you could give me?
  14. Go talk with Ernie from Fish Doctor Charters. This guy is a copper whiz! I just bought a Penn 345 with 600' of copper off him and 2 rolls of 600'. I plan on switching my full cores out to 200' sections of copper. You can achieve the same depth with 100' less line in the water. I plan on making me a 100, 2-200's, 300, 400 foot copper. I can stager these off the boards to cover a great deal of the water column.
  15. Anyone ever have any issues with these reels? Im looking to set up various copper rigs and this reel is made in a 57 size. I dont think the sealines are big enough or else I would go with those. I wish they would make a sealine that would hold a full core and have a better ratio than the Penn. Secondly, do ya think I can fit 3 and 4 hundred foot sections of copper on there?
  16. Hey bud, did you want me to hold that last pair of boards for you?
  17. Im not about to bring it here becasue I think some of the guys on this board are sick of our batteling, but we moved it over to the GLA board so go here and look for the topic: http://www.glangler.com/talkfishing.html
  18. Oops! I shouldnt of posted that here. Last time i posted that I got an e-mail from somone on this board telling me that as a responsible captain I should respect the speed limit in the bay of 30mph!
  19. I think your right Scott! C-ya on Senca Saturday.
  20. Well, after a long process trying to register this boat the last few weeks I finally got her legalized. If you plan to buy a boat in Tenn. or any other state that doesnt title boats and or trailers GOOD LUCK! So on the water around 4pm and off at 7pm. Zip, nada, zilch! I through pointers in the backs of coves (warmest water I found was 42degs), ran spinnerbaits down fallen logs, and through a trap around the first drops in the coves(you know that one that goes from 3-9fow). Nothing! I think the problem was I was too anxious to drive the dang boat! I ripped up and down the bay probably 6-7 times. Trying to get her over 70mph. Good thing for Fish Hedz! What a face saver! Maybe next time I will concentrate on fishing some more.
