I hear everyone having a lot of luck fishing copper. I have a few poles rigged up for it but have never had much luck. I’m sure that I am fishing them wrong.

 

Can anyone give me some pointers on how you do it.

 

-how long of a leader off of the end of the copper. Mono or fluoro?

 

- how much line do you let out once all of the copper is in the water? Does more backing in the water equal greater depth( I have braided line as a backing on all reels)?

 

What type rigs work best? Flasher flies, meat, spoons, etc ...

 

Any other considerations?

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

I will be coming up and giving it another shot 8/11 - 8/18. We will be trying the Fair Haven area this year( usually at the Lighthouse Marina in Port Ontario).

 

Thanks,

Andy - Double Tao

Mine are 50ft of leader,  mag spoons and spindoctors work great.. all depends where your getting your hits or marking fish.. it’s the same as leadcore some days you wish you had more rods rigged and some days it won’t get touched at all

Doubletap Rob's post on the coppers is one of the best on LOU. It will give you a great grounding in copper setups..

Wow, that was a great read! Pretty much sums up any question you could have on running copper. Thanks, can’t wait to give it another try!
