  1. I’d save your money. Planers and dipsies (I only run magnums) are a no-go. Are you sure your dipsies are set on 3? You shouldn’t be tangling with your rigger with only 1 dipsy per one side of the boat. If the dipsy is loose and won’t stay on 3, super glue it in place. Nothing more aggravating.

  2. I’m with Sherman. Diawa Wilderness 8’ mediums for short leadcore (3, 5, 7) 8’6” medium heavy for Dipsies. 9’6” medium heavy for 10 color. Cheap and haven’t had a problem in 3 seasons. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thats what I did. Scotty release clipped to the ball. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yeah here is the terminal end and release (similar to the Black’s Release) that came with my Magnum Metalz Downrigger. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I agree with Force of One. Against the majority, I don’t like those Blacks releases because of the “crimping” of the brass tube around the cable loop that secures the terminal end. I don’t have any confidence in my crimps. I do like the Klincher or Big Jon terminal ends (identical). So, I go from my terminal end, to my Fishhawk probe, to a snubber, to my 15lb Shark. Additionally, and most hated by the Shark crowd, I drilled a hole in the rear shark fin to clip my Scotty release to. I know, sacrilege. It didn’t affect blow back and I like my clip on the weight. I also didn’t like the Scotty clip on the cable. I was finding cable kinks using those cable clipped Scotty releases. My fault, because I didn’t shut the downrigger off in time, but that will happen a lot with me. Wow, little off topic, but slightly related. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. There is No leader on my downriggers. Its 30lb Mono to a swivel. When I go Flasher/fly, I go flasher to the swivel (that swivel is the terminating end of the Downrigger line, and a fly behind the flasher (50lb mono). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Never seen, heard of, or used the big “00” spinnies. I take kids with me often, so I like all the action I can get. Sounds like a good piece of gear for tournaments for sure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Thats 20lb flouro Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. On all my leadcore rods I use 25’ of 29lb flouro. On my flies and spinnglows I use 40lb Big game mono. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. 10 or 12” flasher: I like 32” to 36” from flasher to fly or spin n glow. 8” spin doctor: I like a 24” to 28” length back to fly or spin n glow. 32”-36” also works from the snap on a cowbell to the spinny. Rule of thumb is 3 x the length of the paddle back to the lure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
