8 Rod Program Recommendation Needed Please!

Recommended Posts

There's guys that will tell you less is more. There are firm believers that having 8 lines in the water doesn't help you, it could actually hinder you.   I think it is a matter of being versatile and seeing what the fish want. If the bite it hot, then sure 8 lines might work. If the fish are shy ... sometimes less is really more.

I think I’m going to run 1 300 copper line off the big boards on each side, a wire diver on each side and 2 rigger rods one with a slider.

If I have enough help on the boat, maybe add another pair of wire divers but, the more I think about it, 6 is enough!

For late July trip, im thinking my initial setup will be:

Rigger 1: 11” pro troll paddle with atomik Twinkie meat rig

Rigger 2: moonshine mag spoon with smaller spoon on a slider above

Wire Diver 1: 8 inch spin doctor with fly

Wire Diver 2: 8 inch spin doctor or 8 inch protroll with meat head

300’copper 1: mag spoon

300 copper 2: 8 inch flasher with meat head

Do you guys prefer to run the meat heads naked behind the flasher on wire/copper or the setup with twinkie flies in front

I always run a flasher with my meat rigs.
