  1. Got idea for this rig from NW Pacific trollers - running 3.5 blade size trolling spinners behind flashers - made up some hi-vis UV spinners, combined w/ 8" SpinDoctors - maybe on to something here - were running this last July homeport Menominee, MI came in with a nice salmon & took 1st place in our local derby! am thinking the spinner adds just enough action to trigger strikes from fish that would otherwise just follow? okay, later - good luck this next spring!

  11. http://www.lurepartsonline.com/Online-Store/Liquid-Topcoats/Seal-Coat.html this clear coat from CS Coatings works good, clean tape 1st w/ alcohol, if it is very shiny may have to rough it up 1st w/ fine sandpaper - also to get the tape edges down, can use a little superglue or clear nail polish -
  12. thank you! I think from field testing, the spinner blade actually acts like a rattle, banging against the treble hook shank - not sure if this is triggering the strikes, but definitely gets more hits than spoons without it - little extras I guess (even works for whitefish!)

  14. of course a guy has to drink the beer 1st -
  15. Downrigger Weights Poured some downrigger weights for our boat "Team Busch" 16oz cans ended up 10lbs ea., next time might try the 24oz monster cans? Tip from "How-to" article in Great Lakes Angler magazine. FishKnocker - http://gl-tackle.com/home

  20. Just wanna say u got 1 heck of a spoon there. All 3 of the big fish were caught on them. 2 on blue, 1 on green. Plus some salmon - we caught 16 that day and the majority were off them. Very ​impressed. I already ordered another set and I'm sure a few of my buddy's will be in the future. John M., fishing out of Ontonagon, MI trolling towards Porcupine Mtns, 8-17-16 Thanks John! Awesome catch!!! Tom Schultz - FishKnocker​ GL-Tackle.com
