  5. Hate to say It has been a grind last few days. Most boats reporting very little action. That could change but catches of 0 to 1 or 2 fish has been the norm for most.
  6. If running spoons for the fixed cheater the red clips are the way to go IMO. Typically we will run the bottom spoon set 45-65' back and the top spoon 10' or more in vertical separation depending on depth being fished and target species. When the fish hits the cheater it will slide down to the leader swivel & stop, reel to the boat and net the fish removal of clip not needed. If the fish hits the bottom spoon removal of the clip is quick and easy. Fish on the bottom spoon will still be far enough back from your transom. If you had 50' set back & 10' vertical separation that fish will be 60' behind the boat when removing the clip.
  7. If the Big Jons are electric they use a "bead" on the downrigger cable for the auto stop. The bead will not fit through the Cannon pulley on the retro-ease. However the bead will probably fit through the Scotty version of weight retriever. Had a pair of Big Jons on an old boat, didnt care for having to tip up the boom to set the line in the release either. My current boats riggers are also tip up booms but dont use a bead, I use the Scotty pulley on these with no trouble
  8. You could use any small box or container type item. 1" foam pad to surround sides & bottom. Cut line grooves in the foam on a table saw at ½" depth. These will be the grooves to press the light strip into and also to hold spoons & paddles while charging. 12V water proof light strip from "super bright led's" website wired to a 12V plug with built in switch.
