Copper Question

Recommended Posts

New to the copper thing. My questions is approx how deep will 45 lb 300ft copper run at at 2.6 to 2,7.  with a NK 28.  shallow crankbait  and a  deep diver crankbait Trying to replace what we do later in season when running 400-450 ft of 15 lb single strand with a deep diver to reach the Walleye on Erie in the 60 foot range

What  Vin said is right, we run 32lb. Blood run copper for eyes and at a speed of 1.5 a 175 copper is at about 50 ft to 55ft  with a worm harness. with a crank bait it will most likely tag bottom. copper like lead is very speed dependent so the faster you go the higher in the water it will run.  300 ft of 45 lb copper  in 60 ft of water is overkill for sure.

Blood Run Walleye copper 20lb rated probably a better choice for eyes.  I run 250 ft on Daiwa 57’s  at 2.0 to get down about 55’ for late August/September.  The smaller diameter walleye copper fits smaller reels than the 45lb you need to get down at faster salmon speeds.
