Tying short cores on mono reals

Recommended Posts

Curious if any you guys tie short cores to mono rods for spring browns? And then remove them after and go back to mono.

Yes. I run a lot of one and two colors on Ontario browns and Erie eyes. Leave my mono reels a little short. 1000 yd spool of stealth core handy. If you need a 1 color it’s pretty easy to rig up.

You should have a few short core setups always on hand. But a few snap weights can get depth on any rod. Few 1/2 or 1/4 oz ones could get you a few more rods in with your rigger rods.

I keep a few of different lengths coiled up on narrow line spools with a #8 barrel swivel at the end. a fluoro leader at the other end with ball bearing swivel and when  I want to employ them I just take off the existing ball bearing swivel from the mono and tie it on. I have them set up in 1,2,3,4 color lengths.

Guys stop it....short cores don't work!:smile:

Deadly for Browns a mid depths and Spring Kings

Keeping some short sections leadered up and wrapped on a an empty line spool ready to go as mentioned above is the ticket.

Double Willis knot for me.

Back in the day I used to have a bunch of old reels spooled up with cores on my boat and if needed I would start switching the reels around to the rods I had. I could switch them out fast if needed. Short cores are good all year for steelhead and some days a short core on a rigger is just stealthy enough to take some good fish. I've been trying to convince myself to switch most over to copper but can't get rid of the lead. I would like try a few 25-75 coppers just to see if I like it but will most likely start this season with 1-25 2-50 1-75 added to my 2-1core 2-3core 2-5core. Lead is just hard to beat at that depth. Drops less on turns. Can't wait to get out there. Brown trout fishing does not get the attention it deserves.

With limited resources I was just seeing if I was on the rite train of thought. Rather than taking 15 rods on my 19 fter figured that this would be an easy way to cheat. Thanks guys
