  1. my best advice is to try and hook up with other local fisherman if you know any and get out with them to see how they do things. take pieces of everyones program and customize it to fit your needs.

  3. sarah, thank you for the quick response!!
  4. so what do i do as i try to go online now to sign up my boat to derby fish tmrw and when i hit the register now tab it leads me to a page titled "future site of something cool"
  5. 60F surface temp today. down almost 15degrees from last week. i had one probe at 30ft, another at 75. 43F througout the column. finally found a surface break in 360fow and moved rods there but with the blow today and tmrw it will get worse for sure and push em off shore
  6. crimps for terminations can cause fraying at the connection. i use the wire knot that alot of us use for our dipsy terminations and have never had a problem plus never have to buy a connector again. tie right to the blacks release and small heat shrink over the tag end
  7. okuma classic pro glt has dedicated dipsy rods in 9' and 10'
  8. victorinox breaking knife
  9. i took the average of the coordinates that most posted about that snag and put a skull and crossbones waypoint on my gps to avoid it. two weeks ago my copper got hung up on something and tore off. when i looked at my screen i was only .2 miles from the waypoint
  10. they are no longer in business
  11. dont need clinchers to attach the blacks release. strip some coating off the cable (burning it off and using sand paper to get it back to a sheen works best) and tie it directly to the release with the wire line knot many guys here use to terminate their dipsy rods. use the rubber tape to cover any exposed wire
  12. terminate your coated cable with a blacks release. the probe clips to the blacks release then a break away chain from the probe to the weight. the main line now clips into the release above the probe so even as the probe spins out of the water it doesnt wrap around the line
  13. i put hook bonnets on the trebles and then throw them all in a non divided plano box. easiest and cheapest i have found yet to do it
  14. the rod does not twist at all during the fight due to the ergonomic shape
