    rubber bands for copper

    You can use size 32. In rougher conditions or pulling big paddles you may need to double them up Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Life Jacket?

    It is a 1940s military lifejacket that was loaded with shark repellant. “ The Bureau of Ships issued interim specification R51S48 (INT), Shark Chaser (Life Jacket) on 15 June 1944. The Packet designed for individual use consisted of a 5 ½ oz. cake of repellent in a cotton bag protected by a blue outer envelope made from a vinyl-copolymer-coated fabric. The unit measures 8 ½” x 4 ½” x ¾” with cotton tie tapes to attach to inflatable life preservers and a lanyard with safety pin for use with kapok type life vests. The unit functions in the same manner as the dye markers but the chemical bag can be returned and secured by a snap fastener on the outer envelope. The chemical cake is composed of 76% dyestuff, 19% copper acetate, and 5% soluble wax binder. Specification R51S48 Shark Chaser (Life Jacket) was standardized on October 1st 1945. Until this time the shark chaser was considered experimental.” https://pilotsmanyourplanes.com/Page_75.html?no_redirect=true Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Third downrigger location?

    I would mount on Port side opposite of transducers. A swivel base makes string easier as you can swing it sideways if need be. Be careful with a 3’ boom that there will be enough clearance if the current swings the downrigger cable towards the motor it will clear the prop. The only time it may be an issue is when you encounter big waves which cause your cable angle to change drastically Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Natural color spoons.

    Gold backed spoons, smaller in size, extra long leads, stickbaits in black/silver and brown/gold are my go to for clear water. But as stated above clear water is TOUGH Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Meat

    Use Kosher salt. dump the salt in a ziplock bag and then put meat inside. Make sure it’s coated extremely well. It will toughen the strips up. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
