  1. Why wouldn't you head offshore where the Kings are and try for them when they are biting??
  2. As long of leader as you can handle. I have never used a slide diver. My diver rods have a flasher/fly on them 95% of the time.
  3. I would bet this is a result of what we both have confidence in and what we run the most.
  4. Guys from late May to early August what are you feeling your Flasher/Fly/Meat vs Spoon catch ratio is?? I feel like our boat is 3/1 going to the flasher.
  5. Extra CV30DS reel, what to do?? I have 3,5,7,9 Leadcores, and 250',300',350', 400' Copper setups. With that extra 30 size reel do want a 1 color, or 2 color, or something different like a 10 color??
  6. Won't make much of a difference, going to be ice free by next week with or without boom removal.
  7. I've been doing this trout and salmon trolling thing since the 80's, just thinking today while looking over my rods how far things have come. Originally downriggers where the hot ticket with some bigger boats having 5 riggers. Planers got popular but really only for spring fishing. Zebra Mussels became a thing and tactics needed to change with long leads, coppers, big boards, leadcores, all this became the norm. Downriggers while most boats still have them are far less of the program. Long line stealth approaches that some of our Grandfathers used in the finger lakes are now the goto's, the more things change the more they stay the same.
  8. Always did best with FF on the Kings there in spring. I would not be afraid to run the meat rigs either.
  9. I have had great luck with Pete's Reel Repair for servicing and upgrading my reels. He is very reasonable on cost and uses only the best products from Lucas Oil, Cal's, and Dragmaster's. For a service he disassembles reel and cleans everything in an ultrasonic cleaner, he reassembles them using Lucas reel oil and Cal's grease, if you need carbon drag washers installed now is the time to do it, he uses Dragmasters mostly, some he fabs himself if not available from Dragmasters. Prices are very reasonable and turn around is usually pretty fast. Have a look https://www.facebook.com/petesreelrepair
  10. You guys liking it?? Do the normal dive charts work?? Is it much bigger diameter??
