    downrigger to spoon length?

    Usually the deeper you fish the shorter the lead. If you are fishing say 60' down around 20'-25' lead; say 100' around 10'. My 2 cents worth, and some days you can throw this out the window. But, like fishing bud Sea Eagle says with SWR riggers you have to let out the lead before you connect the release to the line. So no matter what depth you would be at least 20' back for 2 color SWR and 30' for 3 colors. Have a great 2019 season.

    Do you catch fish close to your boat?

    Thanks for that, Jim. Funny that you say that about the old boat. I was explaining some of the concepts to a chap not long ago and he commented; Maybe that's why the old timers claimed that if you hung your catch over the side on one of those metal clip fish stringers that you would catch even more fish. I had not made that connection, but the ones I used back then were zinc coated. As long as they were in contact with the aluminum hull, you would change the hull's voltage signature, just like adding a small amount of zinc to the hull. Al

    Do you catch fish close to your boat?

    Thanks For The Information I have read a few articles on this subject. Your article and the one authored by a Ollie Rode have always bothered me because I am sure that I do not fully understand it. So what to do and I am sure that there are others out there like me!. I am going to print off a lot of notes and then this coming spring I am going to ask a friend of mine who is an electrical engineer for assistance using his multi meter. Then we are going to go over my aluminum boat to get readings. I suspect that I need a second anode as used in my previous aluminum boat and I am going to replace a busted wire on the outside of the shaft of my Honda which I understand connects the zincs. Why I am doing all of this? I have a wonderful memory trolling in freshwater. Eating my wife's prized chocolate oatmeal cookies. Catching lake trout. One after the other, on the surface, close to the boat - IN MY OLD ALUMINUM BOAT ! Haven't had this happen in my new boat, a Lund. I understand that it is bonded properly. I am also going to measure the ion control in my Cannon downrigger. I have never used it. jim

    trolling rods

    I use 8’-6” Wilderness medium action rods for my riggers. For dipseys 9’-6” Okuma medium heavy action. For lead and copper Wilderness and other rods with medium heavy action. 8’ up to 10’-6” (10’ & 10’-6” are old dipsey rods. Use braid on dipseys and braid with mono leader on riggers. Braid on riggers (and super thin SS rigger cable) reduces water drag and blow back when fishing deep. At Ultimate Fishing Show in Novi last Friday, got 2 8’-6” Wilderness medium heavy action rods for $25. Had to get them. Franks Outdoors always has good deals at the show. Used one to replace medium action rod for 200’ copper.

    trolling rods

    I like 7 footers for my deeper running rods and 8'-3" for my higher mono rods. I use all Ugly Stik rods on my boat. I pull Church walleye and 44 boards mostly, but I have the offshore boards as well.

    Trolling at night lights on or off.

    Here are old photos of the inside of my 16' sylvan after finishing the LED install, could not wait to finish cleanup prior to testing them. I was able to use some friend supplied printed circuit module LEDs that are from GM rear view mirrors. The red lights cannot be seen outside the boat and there is no loss of night vision even after looking down at your feet. I also love UV lights for night time mono tying and to illuminate the rods to see a hit.

  27. Does anybody have experience using mangum metalz downriggers? Quality? http://www.magnum-metalz.com/ Thinking about outfitting my boat with a pair.

  29. I switched out my nav lights to LED's few years back and my stern LED which is mounted in middle of my transom lights up the entire stern and can easily net fish just from that light alone. I upgraded my nav LED lights to the 2 mile rating which are brighter and nice to have when fishing the demolition derby at Ludington at night. Be aware of nav rules which will prohibit any red light being visible other than one that is designated on port bow. In cockpit is fine but if can be seen by another boat CG will have problem with it. I put these in my boat recessed under my gunnel such they are indirect lighting and are great for rigging or unhooking fish after dark. I turn off when not needed. Walmart LED truck bed lighting
