  1. Orange and reds down to 50 ft or so . Then blues ,greens and glows deeper than that . Try the pearl / mirage bottom left for high Sun days. A Mirage Atomic has been a good one for me high Sun at all depths . Also try a little green mix with white They look good . My best all around Spin Dr is a double crush glow white . Followed by a white green dot .
  2. I consider slow is as the flex of the rod starts just above reel seat . I have a few rods with slower action that I use for spring Brown's that I put away when I'm after kings . But I used them for years and got kings on them . What you have are designed by Okuma to be downrigger rods so they should be perfect
  3. I feel that a lot of the newer super glows are to intense . Especially in low light and early morning situations . For example , I like the older Glow green J plugs compared to the newer super glow models . Side by side I do better with the older . And it seems they do better when they are in the water a while after the initial light charge wears off a little . It's dark down there and IMO a subtle glow will show up fine where an intense glow maybe scares fish away . Mid day high Sun could be different story . But I still feel any light penetration to those deeper depths hits that glow and makes it attractive as I've done well on those days with glow . Which is why UV works well mid day high Sun foR same reason .
  4. I use Rustolium.from.Lowe's . It works OK.
  5. When I do glow , I paint the spoon or flasher white first , then glow , then I mist over the glow with the color I want . I just did a few with florescent green . Then the base glows through the green and makes the green glow . Then I spray lacquer over . I
  6. Great deal for a guy looking to get into fly tying . I had to look twice at that hand with the finger pointing upwards .
  7. Which is why I bring my boat to Tommy. I would think you have points . I had Tommy put an electronic Ignition in mine . . I get about 1/3 better gas mileage . Money given to Tommy is money well spent .
  8. Albright knot Summer Flea season I run 30# Big Game then 25 ft( my usual lead from.the ball ) of 15# USUALLY . . I have 2 dedicated flasher rods with straight 30# no leader. Never a problem , see no reason to change .
  9. I have a Black and Decker electric a good friend who use to Ice Fish a lot who passed away left to me . It works great. Any of you guys know Chipper ?
  10. Preferably long arms . Working or not .
  11. I have an NK mag that has been real good . Also a Dreamweaver 28 size . Both have black dots on a silver blade .
  12. Watermelon was great last year mid day
  13. DEC said that upwards of 47 % of kings were Nat Reproduction . That is nearly half , no small number . With all the cuts and concentrating the pen sights it remains to be seen what will happen . But to get back to the spring king question , there are a lot of factors that will influence it . Water temp and more importantly color. . Wind direction to name a few . There are years we have had terrible spring kings but great summer fishing. So wait and see .
