  1. Our rigger is 120 down for 46 degrees Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  2. The release "fixes" the slider at a certain depth vs a "free" slider. Without the clip or a rubber band the slider settles at half the ball depth, which also catches fish. My buddy's personal best came on a free slider out of temp. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  3. Salmon are nuts. You won't want to mess with that red clip while one is going crazy at the transom. Rubber band snaps and removes itself. Usually. We had one jam in rod tip last summer and cost us a fish. Nothing is perfect, but it only ever happened once. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  4. Don't have one. Half hitch rubber band onto mainline. Pass snap from slider through rubber band, then clip to mainline. Make sense? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. #16 rubber bands work great for fixed sliders. Easy to set and allow the fish to slide down easy. Don't rule out free sliders. They work equally well some days. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  6. A Twilli tip or roller tip is required to prevent damaging the wire. The Twilli tip works just fine and is extremely easy to put on yourself. 19 strand is supposed to be much easier to work with and show weak spots before failure. I intend to switch upon respool. Put 1000 yards on no matter your choice. Run lines through a rag in your fingers for tension to fill tightly. Fill one reel, tie on mono backer, and fill to full. Tie mono backer to other empty matching reel. Zero counter. Wind on mono. Write down #. Wind on wire. Fill original reel with appropriate amount of backer using noted #. Any mono will do in the 20 to 40# range. Anything laying around. It's to prevent wire slipping on spool. Your in big trouble if you ever see it while actively fishing. [emoji44] Okuma Convector 30's and Daiwa Sealine 47s work fine for me. Friends with 30 Coldwaters like those. Everyone loves Tekotas, they last forever. We use 10' dipsy rod on outside 3 dipsy and 8' rod on inside mag dipsy.
  7. That's the whole point to run it and source of it's effectiveness. It finds fish as it swims around. Leadcore works great on Lake Michigan, but Ontario's fish hold much deeper, so copper is better. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. A 300 copper is supposed to be about 70 down when clipped just past board. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. A 400 copper is supposed to run about 90 down on a straight troll when clipped just past board. Hitting bottom on an inside turn sounds right. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. We only run one copper or core per side. Two sounds like a mess. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  11. Have an 18.5' boat. Run 8 rods. 300 copper, 400 copper, two size 1 dipsy set on 3, two mag dipsy set on 1, two riggers with 12lb balls. Fixed slider on one rigger. Free slider on other. Have been pulling the outside dipsys when resetting coppers to avoid tangles. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. What brand are those planer reel setups clamped to the rails? Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  13. Yes. From experimentation we've caught many fish on a 5 color with 6 oz added at backing, then another 130 to 160 let out. Works when boats nearby have their 300 coppers firing. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. We suck. 0 Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  15. Ouch. A lot of pain to go around! Hope all of your holiday weekends get much better. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  16. Great report and trip! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  17. Awesome trip. Thanks for report. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  18. Thanks for the great report. Hope to repeat your success on Sunday and Monday. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  19. Read the bloodrun link wallguy posted above. Will help a lot. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  20. Those clips aren't necessary with twisting on the pin. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  21. I only bent the arm and added Blood Runs' stainless pin. See no reason to move weights yet. I also was able to make a set of pins for a friend's board out of 1/8 stainless welding rod. Bent in a vise and cut groove with hacksaw. I'm also going to go back to the original clips that came with the boards. No need to mess with the yellow one when doing the twists on the back pin. Don't be afraid to bend the arm. Looks goofy, but works great. Completely takes away the flip and dive tendency of these boards. Keeping the rod low will seem strange too and also works well.

  22. DWB was very good to one boat this past weekend. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  23. Yes. You should have a field day. We couldn't keep them off. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  24. Some boats went out and braved it. Waited with my 19 footer until 10 am to go out. Wasn't too bad. Only went 2/5 with 2 steelies due to limited time. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
