  1. I spooled a couple of reels with 40 lb. Stren Brute Strength.It is fairly limp and tied a pretty good knot. Ran it on Seneca last Sunday-no fleas. Also ran 30 pound Flea Flicker that had fleas. I was never a believer in Flea Flicker anyway. And to me that proves it. Now if we could just get rid of the weeds. Ha-Ha. Troutman 87

  2. I have used jug rigs for years with great sucess. As for the "jug" itself the best thing  I have used is a 2 liter soda bottle.They are very light so you don't have to set your drag very tight. Take and spray the inside with flouresent paint so others can see it behind your boat. Troutman 87

  5. PAP  I make two torpedoes. One weighs a little over 12 pounds the other a little over 16 pounds.If you go through the classified I have a picture of my torps in my original ad. Yes they have a release loop on the back end. You will see it in the pic.The 16 pounders are $40.00 and the 12s are $30.00 plus shipping. I ship USPS flat rate which is $14.00 for two no matter which weight. Get back to me if you want some.Thanks Troutman 87

  6. PAP  I have four older Proos riggers that won't handle the heavy weights,so use 10 pound torpedoes off my two side riggers and 10 pound balls off my back two. I hardly fish more than 100 feet down here on Seneca and Cayuga. The 10 pound torps run very well. Plus I fish slow for lakers with them. Sometimes I use 8 pound balls off my back riggers and run them shallow.  I have never heard much about the pancakes. But the way they are shaped,you would think they would cut the water good and run without much blowback. You are probably going have to do some more expermenting with different weights. Good luck.

  7. PAP I don't run either of these weights myself,I just make them. Everyone that I have sold torpedoes to really likes them. And I have sold a lot of them. I believe the way the torpedoes are shaped it would seem less blowback than the fish. My 14 pound fish weights have a straight tail and putting a bend in them might be tough as they are kinda thick. The 10 pound fish I make can be bent easily. Also I don't think that you could bend the fin on my torpedoes. Hope this helps. Troutman 87
