  1. Ha ha, this has been a topic forever for the Stinger Spoons, especially on Lake Erie for walleye. The speculation was always that you would just buy more / new spoons, so why make the paint stick better (at least from Stinger's perspective). This is one reason I prefer taped spoons, they tend to hold up better. Maybe with the change in ownership the new spoons from Stinger will have better paint? Time will tell.

  2. Check out the blood run website. They have info on splicing copper. They recommend replacing copper with a splice, but they also sell line. I have run mine spliced for a couple days, but I only get a few shots a year at salmon, so I end up replacing it pretty quickly. 

  3. A few more easy fuel related issue checks:


    • Make sure spiders / bugs / etc. isn't clogging your tank vent. This can cause a vacuum in your fuel tank which is more noticeable when you try to run (i.e. draw more fuel.)
    • Make sure your fuel line isn't collapsing on itself and restricting flow.
    • Replace your anti-siphon valve. This should be at the tank. Sometimes they get gummed up / clogged.

    Would a jet diver be a good idea for running the chute rod straight down off the stern? I'm not that experienced with them but it seems that they would fit the bill.

    I used TrueTrips (like a Jet) on Erie. They have a trip mechanism like a dipsy to make the retrieve easier.. The 50 size certainly would get you down pretty deep, but I have never tried them for Salmon.
