    Planner boards for copper line?

    I threw my z boards away and don't run the tx 44 boards I own. The z boards false release too much and the tx 44 boards are too hard to reel in with a big fish on. I run 5 boards on each side. Weight all the way forward on a walleye board will pull a 600 copper fine. I run3 dipseys on each side. Only time they ever tangle is if someone lets one out too fast. I do run a mag diver on inside rod. Number ones on 2nd and 3rd rods. I run rings only if I need depth. I do have 8 foot,9 foot and 10 foot rods and the holders are in a 4 foot long track. I use great lakes holders and have each rod at a slightly differrant angle.
  3. Chasing walleye in saginaw bay this week end. Salmon slowed down a bit right now.

    One More Setup

    Make sure drag is tigh enough to hook the fish but loose enough for it to take some. Also attach a dipsey and let most wire out and reel it in. This will tightly spool the wire. A 1lb ball will do same. Wire that isnt tightly spooled will pull into itself and bind. Wire dipseys are by far my favorite fish catching set up. If enough people on my boat I run 6 dipseys. 4 being wire.
  5. Frank,

    I am staying in the Econo lodge this Thursday through Sunday in Augres.Keeping boat in Marina in Standish. Going to try walleye fishing in the bay again. Lost your number through multiple phone changes some how. We will stop and have cold one with you if you get me your number. I am sure I could find the house but dont stop places un announced.

    One More Setup

    I have taloras with swivel tips. I have fished taloras with out swivel tips. The swivel tips are a pricey addition to a great rod. But if you need longer than 8 foot its your only option. I run mag divers and have never had a problem with talora rods. Before I decided to spend the buck I broke 4 okuma blue diamond rods. I would suggest you save money by buying one rod. Eat the expense and be done. Shimano rods have a lifetime warranty that I doubt you will use. Convector reels are ok. I prefer the smoother tekotas though.

    Strategies for 5 fish tournies

    I have found if you are catching small fish go deeper with your lures. I usually place well in tournaments because I fish near the bottom. I also fish out of the pack of boats. I have never told someone I am running long lines on the radio because of my fishing out of the pack. Deep dipsey divers produce big fish. The Dreamweaver is a great event with a great charity. My fish were all caught in 150 to 200 fow 100 plus down. Smallest of my allowed 15 was 11.5 lbs. Highest line was a 300 copper. Thats how I fish weigh 5 best tournaments.
  9. I run 45lb Morgans. I prefer the standard copper because the super copper frays and is a bigger pain than letting the standard copper out. I run lead on one side and copper on the other. My long lead cores are best producers on my boat. According to my fish hawk td probe my 17 color lead goes deeper than my 450 copper. All charts and people say differant but I have checked them many times on the same troll and day and speed. Copper is necessary if you want to expand your opportunities to catch fish.
  10. Atlantic Salmon have a v in their tail fin. That fish is a brown trout. Still a tasty treat. Good job.
  11. Yes I went out this morning. Ended 6 of 17. The kids onboard had trouble landing the fish but they had a great time.

    Frank I slowed my boat to 1.5 mph in 4 foot seas and my raymarine sport pilot 5r could only keeps its course with the waves. I didnt put a bag in the water. That probably would have helped. I told you I would try it so I am giving you my report on it. The wind does catch my hard top. Now at a 2.5.troll it will keep its line in 8 foot seas all directions. Keep catching those fish Frank.
  13. Whitehall has plenty of fish. Nice job. I see I am in your picture at the cleaning station.

    What to do when your not catching them...

    I prefer to fish away from the croud. After sun rise it usually takes long lines or dipseys away from the boat. If the fish disappear go deeper with your lures. If that doesnt work go to deeper water. The fish bite all day. Usually an hour lul and they feed again.

    Kevin, next time the fish shut down go out deeper. The temperature is warm to the bottom in 100 fow in Whitehall right now. I have been catching alot of fish in that warm water. But I know 160 to 200 fow has active fish all day long. Send dipseys deep. Like 200 feet back. 60 to 100 down is producing fish.
