  1. Personally I am an Okuma guy and it takes a bit of backing to ensure the spool is full even with 1000' of wire.
  2. No problem. Launched my boat at the public launch last saturday. No issues in and out of the channel. 3'+
  3. Correct but look at total supply...
  4. My understanding is its all in effort to keep the possibility of flooding down. We still have record inflows so apparently they are trying to get ahead of it.
  5. Braid works also as backing but make sure you wrap the spool with electrical tape to keep the braid from slipping on the spool. FYI i have never experienced, seen, or heard of wire reels creeping because of mono backing.
  6. So the answer is... They need backing to make sure the spoil is full. Okuma 30 series require a bit of backing to insure that. If you spool only the 1000 ft of wire then the spool will not be full. I would suggest 200' of 20# mono and then attach to the wire with an albright knot and fill until the spool is full. A full spool offers both counter accuracy and operation my efficiency. Sent from my moto z4 using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I have 3, 5, 7, 10 colors along with 50, 100, 150 coppers
  8. For skinny water I run chinook divers. Size #2 in black (honestly not much of a difference with diver size and performance in less then 20 fow). I prefer to use my standard diver setups with 65# braid as opposed to wire this time of year. 12' fluorocarbon leader 10-12# test. And 99% of the time its a spoon on the money end. From rod tip to diver we will fish them 10-15 ft out.

  10. Sometimes but 99% of the time my flatlines get sticks. My riggers and divers get spoons.
  11. For reels... Okuma Convector high speeds are a great choice. They are virtually bulletproof! For rods... I love the Okuma White diamond series. They have specific models for divers, riggers, coppers, leadcore, Im also a huge fan of the Blue Diamond series and use the ML downrigger rods for early season.
  12. Save the date! The 2021 Sandy Creek Shootout is scheduled for Saturday July 24! Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/sandycreekshootout Website: http://sandycreekshootout.com/
