  1. B-R-O-W-N for sure. Tail gives it away (atlantic is forked) Too many black spots on gill plate (trout normally only has 2 or 3 on gill plate). Mouth looks like it ends behind eye or close to it (trout has smaller mouth).
  2. NOTHING. I used to add drop weights onto my mono line to get some depth for trolling shallow in early season ... 1 oz, 2 oz, 3 oz does nothing to counter the drag ... you need much heavier to do anything ... then it becomes akward trying to hang all that weight on the line ... so the solution is TORPEDO DIVERS. Torpedo Diver – Angling Sports Cuda is 12 oz ... and the profile reducing the drag. You can attach using an OR16 clip (not on the copper ... you'll need to put it on the leader, or on a braid section). If you don't have downspeed and depth (Fishhawk) ... then just attach it all together with tackle but without the hook ... and go out and see where it bottoms out at 2 mph. Start with adding the cuda dive depth to the copper dive depth, and work your way in shallower until you hit bottom.
  3. Braid does attract fleas, at least the 30 lb stuff does ... you won't be happy with that in the middle of summer. I don't have experience on using 65 lb ... I believe I read that if the braid diameter is big enough, it helps with fleas ... just don't recall at what size. The other idea is to use 40lb mono ... fleas won't stick. Now, the issue will be line stretch, and elasticity, but perhaps this heavy gauge line and a short length of it to simply get around your storage requirements could be okay. You'll need to test it to see if it works. Now the question you ask is about the knot ... for braid you could use an albright knot, for mono I'd think you'd need a barrel swivel ... and then you have to worry about your top line guide ... whether you don't damage it ... twillie tip would help a lot. Anyhow, it's a good question ... it's not a simple solution, some trial and error required.
  4. Yup, large snap swivel to connect slider to the main line ... all you need that snap swivel to do is stop at the main line lure ... it can be fairly big to still do that!
  5. Ahhh, too bad doesn't ship to Canada!
  6. I've tried everything ... when it gets into the "middle" of that eissenglass ... forget it. Plexus will only take care of a tarnished surface ... but if the material is going through the thickness of it, it won't do anything. It happens, especially if water sits on it ... and the only thing you can do is replace the eissenglass.
  7. Black, don't get caught on the gimmicks ... I used to, then I removed that variable, by spray painting all my dipseys black.
  8. If I was a fish, I would totally eat that.
  9. I'd want a deep copper, 500'. I'd say 250' or 300' and 500' if you only want 2 rods.
  10. with the wind is going to be easier I suppose, but you'll need to be able to control speed, which may be difficult if the wind is hectic.
  11. Impossible to say any words that will provide enough support to help you deal with this loss. This is very close to the hearts of many people, on and off this forum. One of my best-friends lost his wife to breast cancer (spread to liver) just a few months ago. It hurts. I pray for you, that God will provide you with strength during these trying times.
  12. You'll need to research this, but i did do some king fishing in NC (close to SC boarder) ... it was incredible man! Hopefully June is a good time for them ... I believe my trip, which was over 20 years ago, was in mid-summer.
  13. Dude ... is there any end to your fishing knowledge? That is incredible.
  14. Yeah, if you want Goliath Grouper, you really need a charter that specializes in them. I wouldn't go to a regular Bob for that.
  15. The Gulf is VERY shallow, which means warmer water. You have to go really offshore to get into some really big game fish. Now, February water will be colder, so I've seen on occasion people catching smaller tuna, or wahoo. I've caught a 15 lb Amberjack ... that was a nice fight, but it was a few days after a huge storm, and that's what brought them in. I'd say you have to be pretty lucky to get one of these types of larger fish. Typically what is caught is red snapper, hog fish, grouper (check whether season is open for grouper) ... smaller fish are what you get ... around the 2 lb to 5 lb mark. It's more volume than fighting. The most fun I've had on the Gulf is booking a charter that took us to a sunken ship, and we fished Goliath Grouper (catch and release). What I've always missed, due to not being there at the right time, is Tarpon fishing. From what I recall, in the Sarasota area ... May is the best month.
  16. The info comes from the Associated Press ... but I can't figure out how to get the link ... it just shows as a summary on my Google Search. This one results ... but I see that the Dems here have 50 votes, but that includes 2 independent parties (which I assume are leaning Democrats). So I think that is where the Associated Press says it's actually 48 for the Dems, 2 Independent, 49 for Republicans and 1 vote for the VP (Dem). See here (to reiterate, look at the notes below the 50 count for the Dems ... it includes 2 independent seats). Senate Midterm Election Results 2022 | CNN Politics So there's only 1 senator seat up for grabs in Georgia?
  17. So, I'm looking at the live results ... Dems have 48, and Republicans have 49 in Senate ... Aren't there 2 senators per State? Is it only 1 up for grabs in Georgia ... or both? Also, it says Dems have 48 seats, not 50 ... ?? Or are they counting the 2 "other" parties as Dems ... why Dems ... are they just left leaning?
  18. Can someone give a current status on the midterms? High level? From what I see ... Republicans need 1 more seat to control the house, and that seems like a 100% certainty, so we can conclude Republicans will control the house? For Senate ... it's tied (Dem has one more if you consider the VP (Dem) vote). Georgia will decide whether the Senate is controlled by Dems or Republicans? Do I have that right?
  19. Perhaps we should change the question a little ... and I don't mean to hijack this thread, it is in an effort to perhaps better answer the OP's question. What is your favorite musky lure, and how many sizeable muskies has it caught you PER YEAR, on average?
  20. So ... basically there's no consistency ... everyone has their own best bait!
  21. When does the fishing season open in Vancouver? It will have just opened in Ontario.
  22. I agree, I think when they stage, they don't really care about temperature, and may sit in warmer water, although I can imagine if it gets too extreme due to wind bringing in warm water, they may move out deeper a bit. They'll then wait for the rains and cooler nights ... I believe the run is triggered by the temperature of the cooler river water when it rains.
