  1. Les, You are absolutely right!! I saw a response on this page somewhere that they can fit 150yds of 50lb braid behind 300 copper on their 50 Saltists and didn't question it. I just knew the mono backer I have is not enough. I have a great excel chart that lets me play with reel capacity and line size. Here is what I found today when I played with the excel chart Based on the the reel capacity of 30lb mono 350yds thickness of 0.022" Here is what will fit on the Daiwa Saltist 50s that I have 300' of blood run copper at 0.033" diameter 35' of 30lb leader at 0.022" For backing it says I can get 750' of 50lb power pro at 0.014" and the reel will be at 96.6% full and at 825' of 50 lb power pro it will then be 99.5% full You also need to account for any mono backer you use to start the wraps on the reel as I don't tape my reels up or tie braid straight to the spool. With that said 700' of braid should fit nicely. I usually shoot for ~98% full on my reels That is a lot better, I have found the chart to be very accurate when filling my lead core rods and needing to know backing lengths. Les thanks for the kick in the pants to do my homework and not just rely on something I saw. People make typos or use lines of different diameters, say feet when they mean yards, or sometimes I just misread things! I continue to say this is the best site ever where guys are always helping each other. Tight lines Terry

  3. I have read the stickies on this subject which are great and many other posts but have a question still. I bought a few used Daiwa Saltist 50s last year already spooled up with 300 copper and they have mono backing. Had a few fish run taking me farther down the spool then I am comfortable and cranked up the drag to stop them. I want to change the mono backing out to 50# power pro braid to get about 450’ of backing. My question is when running a mast and large boards like otter etc... what clips should I use to attach to the braid? I have also read guys splice mono between the copper and braid, is this the preferred method for my set up. I have the large red offshore releases already and used them with no issues on the copper with mono but not sure if the will hold the braid.

  4. I have two Saltist 50s set up for 300 coppers and I think that is the limit the reels are awesome but your not gonna get 400 on there with enough backing Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Thank you everyone for the help I ordered the standard NE card as I didn’t see a need for the satellite images. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. That would be great please let me know. Also if your card is PLUS and version # Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. I wonder if the Plus version doesn’t have Lake Ontario but the regular one does? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Guys this is great info, I have had the HB 859 DI unit for 5 years now and it came with the Navioncs card which has worked ok. I just bought a trolling motor with Ipilot link and it requires a Lakemaster card with the Ipilot logo. I plan to use the Link to follow contours both on Ibay and out on Lake O when I fish alone. I did see that the North East card is the one I want for Lake Ontario, but did not see I-bay or Sodus bay on the NE card. Both bays are listed on a different card called Great Lakes. Yankee troller has confirmed that the North East card does in fact have I-bay and Sodus, but Sodus is not as good.
  9. I finally pulled the trigger on an ipilot link unit and its time to replace the Navionics card with a Lakemaster that will work with the ipilot. I am confused a bit not having used Lakemaster cards and looking listings up on HB site and reading posts here. It looks like for Lake Ontario I need the Northeast card, but Irondequoit and Sodus bays are listed on a different card. Can anyone with the Northeast card tell me if Ibay and Sodus are on there? My Navionics card gives me everything but wont work with Ipilot link. Thanks Terry Sent from my iPad using Lake Ontario United

  11. It appears there are two different styles the ones in pictures 2 and 5 do not appear to have a release mechanism and work like the tiny Big Jon disks that you would fight the disk and the fish. Might be a bit difficult with a 5" disk.
  12. Thanks for the suggestion that looks like a great spread and would give me a good range and versatility and a good use of the reels capacities. I really appreciate your help. Being newer to the weighted line thing I just don’t want to do things over and over if guys have go to set ups that I should incorporate into my spread.
