  1. I AM A MAN.I AM AN AMERICAN I do not choose to be a common man It is my right to be uncommon... If I can. I seek opportunity... Not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, Humbled and dulled by having the state to dream and build, to Fail and succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the Guaranteed existence; the thrill of Fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence Nor my dignity for a hand out. I will Never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud, and unafraid; to think and act for myself; enjoy the benefits of my creations; and to face the world boldly and say, "This I have done with my own hand, I am a man. I am an American. By Dean Alfange

Top speed by GPS is 49 mph with 2 guys and all tackle., you can slow her down to 1/2 mph if need be with the trolling plate on 150 honda or use the kicker motor... Rides great in ruff water.

  9. Hank You made another trip around the sun with out any problems this year...Happy Birthday Hank all the way from the left coast
  10. This only happens to me when I am using the 15 Lb weights...This time of the year we are fishing at 150' to 180' down
  11. Mark Told you going west will always get you fish. Sun shine, sandy beaches & bikinis Another great day on the water driver
  12. Another day on the big blue wavy highway and some a bloody deck to boot. Sounds like you had a good time Mark.....
  13. I used the RC-95 for years and have found I like the RC-90 with the extra cable. Bit more money , sure saves time on splicing and crimping
  14. $ 14.95 Cold water tackle, is the place I get mine http://www.coldwatertackle.com/black-marine-products
  15. Think I have tried every release on the market to date. But when it comes to fishing deep ( 150' ) below, can't beat the Blacks. I for one hate to stack rods on the same rigger, There is just to many ways to get lines to depth and away from the boat today than thirty years ago.
  16. About time Driver... Been waiting to read something besides a log book for the past 6 mos. Getting the daughter on a good tug had to put some smiles on. Keep it safe Mark, see you from the land the sun sets.
  17. At what surface speed ? At 4 mph surface speed, the copper will or should rise or it kills all the action
  18. The original post/question "Anyone know at what surface speed, copper loses it's action ?"
  19. It moves in a slow wiping actions the same as Laeadcore as it rises and sinks at slow speeds. Have someone go to the bow of your boat and let it out, while your at the fantail of the boat, you can watch it as it sinks to depth.
  20. Sounds like a heck of a day on the water Matt, especially for the young when the TUG is the drug of choice
  21. All my copper rods are set up with Braid to 9' Mono to Copper to 25' leader
  22. I was thinking that as well as it just became a straight piece of copper line with no action. Our Mono lines only had one split shot 6' ahead of the spoons at the 4 mph surface speed
  23. We have been trolling copper for a tournament last weekend. During our Pre -fishing 95 % of our fish came off Big boards with copper at 2.5 to 2.7 Mph surface speed . Kicking surface speed up to 4 mph by GPS, the bite we had on Copper was gone...it turned into a Monofilament bite only. Anyone know at what surface speed, copper loses it's action ?
  24. You should have taken up Golf before you get in to deep...
