What’s everyone using for their 500 copper setups? I have a few Okuma coldwater 55 reels that from my understanding I can get 500’ of 45# copper but only about 100’ of backer. Don’t feel like that’s enough for Lake Ontario salmon but I saw a 500’ copper on a convector 55 at fat Nancy’s the other day. What reel and how much and what size backer are you running for kings?
