  1. I just found that the line twisted badly if I didn't put another snap swivel on it. I ran one a couple weeks ago clean with no flasher and caught a nice king, also. But for whatever reason they were working well with spinnies Sunday. Yes r-6 foot behind the spun doctor. Also they worked best after the sun came up! Glow stuff before Sun was awesome!
  2. We caught fish on leader lengths from 4 foot to 6 foot. The biggest king came on the shortest leader and the smallest king came on the longest leader. I would suggest using a bead chain snap swivel to attach to your spin doctor. Otherwise the line twists badly! Also the single hook presentation caught the biggest king. It was a long fight (20 minutes or so) and never once did it look like he would shake it!
  3. Used them yesterday behind spin doctors and every one took a fish! I actually put herring in them just like a meat rig. We started with tuna (in oil) in them and had nothing until I switched over to the herring then both dipsies went off at the same time less then 5 minutes after I switched to herring. One with our biggest king to date!
  4. I did not have to do a single thing and I received my first issue of GLA this week! I was pleasantly surprised with the content. Mr. Keatings contribution is really good! I will be in Holland with a buddy on March 9.
  5. The steelies (and kings), if not hooked up solid on a treble can use the other hooks on the treble itself as a lever to release the one that is lodged in their mouths. I agree that 3 hooks will most of the time catch more fish than one, but when it comes to feisty steelhead and big kings I would rather not give them a fulcrum to work their way off. Just my opinion.
  6. 2 weeks ago I was on the Kalamazoo river and I drug up some bottom, in the form of a rock. The crevices of that rock were filled with small larvae that resembled a small wax worm in shape and size. Only thew larvae were darker colored. I'm sure that a more experienced river fisherman could tell you exactly what larvae they were. We did not have a hookup that day, but the weather sure was nice!
  7. "Salmon, Trout, Steelhead" is an awesome publication! That is good news, hopefully! Thank you for posting. Reading this makes me want to get my drift gear out again and chase some steel!
  8. Bite has been tough here, Dave. But the fish are just a bonus to a week off of work! We have picked up some decent fish when we mark them by lifting the sinker off the bottom and almost jigging it. The weather has been nice enough so we can keep our lines right under the boat without a whole lot of work. The Minnesota inland fishery is incredible. Been coming here for 15 years and it does not disappoint! It has always been a great end to the trolling season in Michigan.
  9. Nicely timed post! I am in Minnesota right now Lindy rigging for walleye and this article brought up some good pointers for me to remember! Thank you, Dave.
  10. Convector 30's with line counters will work awesome for you. I am still a fan of the old green Swan roller rods. 9 foot for the outside (high diver) and 8'6" or 8 foot for the inside (low diver). Any wire will work, but the thinner diameter the easier for everything.
  11. The retailers are great and Okuma is great also! They are always very receptive on how to better their products and they seem to keep the costs down and the quality up for those of us on a budget.
  12. Last weekend I heard from a reliable source they were getting them in 70 fow. I did noy bother to ask north, south or straight out. Hope that helps you narrow your search a little.
  13. Yes what Frank said. We have been catching them for years with warts and it does not affect the meat at all, or the fish for that matter. Nothing to be concerned with.
