  1. Well after south trolls post about fish not really fighting I just setup another 300 45lb thank you both for the info. I only run the tx-44 on my 45lb so I couldn't imagine running 60lb off anything less.
  2. so did anyone try the 60 lb.? thoughts, ideas? would you reccomend it to a late july august fishermen?
  3. https://www.torpedodivers.com/scart/product_details.asp?ItemNum=V0010 $34.99 twili tips are like 8 bucks!
  4. I run all 45lb as well 300 is my longest have two of them best poles in the water after 10 o clock in july and august. I will be looking at this new 60lb when all the reviews and dive curves come back though.
  5. If the strip is firmer before brine, brine is not strong enough and your never gonna be able to use homemade strips for more than one fish. store bought strips are basically jerky they are salted so heavily, but that process also absorbs alot of the smell.
  6. I would bet its the releases if your fishing meat the hooks should be swallowed your not hooking up quick enough and something is happening with the hooks then. Like I said 3 years no problem. Or maybe if your running strips the hooks not being in the bait and just flailing around are it. They will work with one hook in the heat of the bite when a hook breaks off in the net i will run 1 hook meat rigs till I get time to retie.
  7. I have ran them for 3 years without a problem.Iif you get rid of 1 of the hooks it only stands to reason your gonna miss more fish with half the hooks. Are you running strips? maybe your not getting a good hook up at first what do you use for releases?
  8. I was gonna say Bass Pro but they dont have either of the things you are looking for!
  9. I use coho eggs for the color and toughness and Atlas mikes orange cure.
  10. good luck finding a hotel or campsite everything is usually booked by june.
  11. Do your meat rigs glow? That would be the only explanation I could thinkof for your meat shutting down prime time.
  12. I have problems with mics for some reason same antenna for 26 years 4th radio due to mics failing.
  13. :grin:Frank's Red Hot, I put that sh-t on everything
  14. solderinG a loop in the copper is the way to go it goes through the eyes and reel guides much smoother than the bailing wire twist .
  15. I think your overthinkin the walleye all this copper and leadcore is a waste of time for walleye. your fishing either saginaw bay or lake erie 2 of the most dirty bodies of water in michigan. I use inline weights for a dollar a piece and never have to put more than 40 feet out in saginaw bay, lake erie, or lake huron. when your fishin no farther then 40 ft from the boat there is alot less chance of some ahole cuttin your equiptment off because lets face it there are alot more aholes walleye fishin then salmon fishin. if your dead set on usin your copper you could always just use a snap weight too.
  16. um 45 is heavier than 32 this is blood runs dive chart for 32 25′ copper – 5 feet down 50′ copper – 10 feet down 75′ copper – 15 feet down 100′ copper – 20 feet down 150′ copper – 30 feet down 200′ copper – 40 feet down 250′ copper – 50 feet down 300′ copper – 60 feet down 350′ copper – 70 feet down 400′ copper – 80 feet down 450′ copper – 90 feet down 500′ copper – 100 feet down 550′ copper – 110 feet down 600′ copper – 120 feet down I would say the 45 is close to what you got. Thats also some pretty heavy leadcore you got.
  17. Never done the ball thing worked fine for 3 years now with same wire. usually your kinks will be within a foot or two of your crimp anyway so you wont lose much. its really hard for mr to let inexpierenced people touch my wire rods though I just cringe when they are free spooling them out. hottest 2 rods in the boat last year!
  18. we usually run 2 oz snap weights run the lure out 50' then snap on we usually figure with spoons and crawler harnesses 2' out is 1' down but if your putting flashers on they gonna drag harder your guess is as good as mine. put em on a downrigger then you know where they are just run the 50' lead.
  19. If its on a board you wont have to worry about it. I know alot of guys that shute core and they say they just move it opposite side of fish coming in, but I aint one of those guys nothing belongs in the shute except hooked fish.
  20. Yeah what everyone else said more abrasion resistant!
  21. I honestly dont see why they wouldnt work they have the same reflective scales as a herring or smelt their body is just wider but you can trim that up. They are probally fatter that herring or smelt so they should be smellier and greasier.
