Official name is Cercopagis pengoi. They show up in the lake when it warms up, usually from now through September. The problem they cause is they collect on your line going to the downrigger. Heavier line will usually help, like 30-40 lb test. I splice in about 150 ft of 40 lb test line and use a 20 or 25 lb test leader.

No they are aquatic bugs that goop up on light line when downrigger trolling, they will attach to wire line but come off easy on the wire rods, not so easy with light line less 20 lb. test, a real pain in the a$$.
