  1. I'm probably the wrong guy to ask. According to my wife, when it comes to buying tackle I need an intervention.
  2. I run the lead off the boards in addition to the downriggers. Also leadcore imparts an undulating action to the lure that no other setup can.
  3. Leadcore comes in segmented colors of 10 yds. Each. The more colors out the more line out and the deeper you are.the colors make it repeatable. 10'colors is all of it.
  4. 60 feet with 10 colors out at 2.1 mph. Light flutter spoon
  5. I caught accidental browns on the last 3 trips out of Mexico. 100 fow on a 10 color leadcore with flutter spoon.
  6. I think that is a self etching primer. As long as it,s suitable for aluminum I don't see a problem
  7. As a body shop owner for the last 28 years I,ll give my 2 cents, just an opinion for what it,s worth. 1) painting your boat does not put you in violation of voc laws,but you have to dispose of leftovers properly.2) I think 60 grit on an orbital is a bit rough.primer and paint probably won't fill the hook marks left. I would run over it with 180 as a final sand.3) rolling on rustoleum should work and since it,s a slow drying enamel you could roll a section then tip it with a quality brush( go over it lightly to remove air bubbles and smooth the finish) the fine brush marks will flow out , a little thinner on the brush helps. If you need anything just pm me, always glad to help a fellow LOU member.
  8. If I didn't,t already have them I would probably opt for boards over riggers but I have never found them to be a pita.Plus it lets me fly the American flag higher on Memorial Day.
  9. That makes sense.the boards are probably easier.on Oneida they make more sense because the mini divers don,t track to the side and the riggers give me better seperation
  10. No problem ,my mistake, I'm trying to figure out if the out rigger clips will hold full size divers. It adds 2 lines to the spread.on Oneida a full spread is downriggers, 2 mini dipsys off outriggers and 4 boards, would like to do the same on Ontario with 2 more divers of the side.
  11. X2....3 downriggers plus electronics.no issue
  12. Sorry, I meant outriggers, I assume you mean downriggers because I don't think black,s will fit on the outrigger line.
  13. On Oneida I run mini dipsys off the riggers and some days it,s the hot rod. Is any one using this setup on lake O and if so what release to hold the diver?
  14. Thanks guys. Just tried a double uni and it seems like it,s gonna do the job. I appreciate the feedback.
