  1. Too much pressure is my guess. You should barely have a good grip of your sharpener when touching the hook. I can't stress enough how little pressure you should use. You'll be amazed at how fast and well this does for you.
  2. In a tourny, blood loss is weight loss. Thump em!
  3. Dreamweaver SS target tip NBK started to fire a lot the second half of last season.
  4. mongoose, green dolphin, gator, nbk, and my new favorite, the black fin. The fish liked it so much, a king decided to bite one off this past sunday!
  5. Use a type of loop knot so the action of the j-plug is at it's maximum. I've done this for the past 10 years or so and my catch rate on them went up a bunch.
  6. My new favorite is the Dreamweaver 8" super glow green spin doctor w/ a super green glow fly (self made). It's been killer the first half of the mornings and on cloudy days. You Michigan guys might want the blue one though.LOL I'm going to start giving time to the chart. edge glow spin doctor and I'll let you know how it does.
  7. We do very well with the Hammerhead cowbell and a med. size spin-n-glow w/ 4 beads between hook and spinner about 27" behind. BTW: Why do they call it a spin-n-glow if most of them don't glow? Should it be a spin-n-GO instead?
  8. I think your voltage looks fine. You just don't want the negative kind.
  9. As far as last season & and so far this season, Magnum Dreamweavers are catching just as many fish on my wires as my spindoctors do. Those spoons run awesome even w/ faster speeds.
  10. I don't even bother w/ braid anymore. All wires for me. I get a lot of bows & coho's early in the season with them deployed 30-60' out. Them fish are out of the water before you can say "fish on!".
  11. Fast speed/more action. If I have leaders under 22" then I use them w/ the slower action hole.
  12. Guys that are running outriggers, I was wondering what your using for holders? I have gimbal mounts now and when the outriggers are deployed, they are quartering way too far towards the bow and I don't like it. I want to put on deck mount holders so I can be a touch more forward than perpendicular to the boat. I know of a couple guys running dotlines. Any suggestions? Thanks
  13. We got an X-4 last season and what a difference in the 2 probes! If anyone needed to purchase a down temp unit, that is the one. Why anyone would choose to buy the one w/ coated cable is beyond me.
  14. I have found that running the dive bombs half way up the lead works the best for me and taking them off during a battle is literally, 1 second. I have 2- 3 color cores and 2- 10 color cores. I have also never had a problem using offshores clipped on the lead.
  15. I put some in the gallery. I'll put them in the photo section when I can get to it. Thanks guys! Hi Robbie!
  16. Hello everyone! Been fishing Ontario for about 25 years now and hopefully if the asian carp don't come through then maybe 25 more years to come. Looks like a great site and will share and take info as often as I can. I will post some Salmon pic's soon over in the pic's section. Have a great season, Scott
  17. If you have fly leaders on the shorter side(under 22" from end of loop to fly head) you will have no problem getting fish on the less action hole of any brand flasher. Over 22" you should be on the more action hole. Just my 2 pennies.
  18. Stingers here. NBK or frogs. BTW: What is up w/ Michigan guys using so much blue? Here in Ontario, you couldn't catch a cold w/ blue. Once in a while I throw them out and still nothing. Must be water color or something. It just blows my mind!
  19. 12# Big Game the first half of the season and 15# the rest of the season. 50# Big Game for all fly leaders. Everything happens so fast under the water that I'm not convinced that floro is a lot better than mono. Mono is more limp and "I think" that my spoons run better w/ it. Just my 2 cents.
