Brand new here, actually this is my first post. We, my brother and I live in NE Ohio. We walleye fish on Lake Erie, so not new to fishing, just new to the salmon game. Going to come over to Lake Ontario and need advice on tackle (reels, rods, line, etc.) to purchase. We plan on fishing down riggers, dipsy's and planer boards. Thinking an August trip or three. I know this is a loaded request as I'm sure there are many differing opinions and options.
Some of what we have been advised so far. Have to fish mono. Can't fish mono. Got to have copper. Don't use copper, wire is the ticket. Have to use 17 strand torpedo wire. Can't fish braid. Have to fish 45 or 55 size reels. 30 size is all that is needed. You see where this is going. So, give us a little guidance here if you will.
Thank you all in advance,
