  1. This year I have went to 30 to 40 ft leaders on my divers and I am landing more fish than ever on my divers. Yes you have to hand line em and make sure the diver rod is in position to re engage the fish should you need it. But for sure this has helped us out a lot this year. I run mag diver with mag ring on wire I have found that color really has not mattered for myself. Currently I am running a black one and a clear one. I run 50lb Ande for my leaders and DS3 swivels. About the only bad thing I have had happen is the leader gets wadded up in the heat of the moment and it takes a minute or 2 to straighten it out. Hot combo for us has been Kevins Girlfriend 8 inch with Kevins meat rig. Grizzly

  3. Was wondering what everyone uses to store there trolling flies in?? I have been using swim tubes with a box setup but always ends up a mess. Grizzly

    Holland 7-21

    I put a 50 lb chunk of mono around the base of the reel and tie it off to a release clip. I back the drag down and clip the release on the wire. Works well for me
  6. Not sure what brand I get. But the riverside fly is my goto. I tie my own with 50 lb falcon mono. They work great. Grizzly
  7. Looking to find some 7.6 1100 BWD Ugly Sticks. Having a heck of a time finding them. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Grizzly

    Wire Diver tips

    Seeing as Wire was just added to my spread over the last summer i ran into a situation where i was only landing about a 3rd of my hookups. The fish were coming off right off the bat and the drags were not set loose enough. Well after messing around for awhile and constantly tightening the drags i finally found some old releases in the boat. I wired them up to the real seat and took the pinch pads and placed them on the wire just in front of the reel. Loosened the drags and my percentages went up to about 75 percent. It made a big difference for me. I have Okuma convector 45's and granted they are not probably the best reel for this application but they get the job done. I am running wire on both sides of the boat now and really like feeling everything the fish does when fighting them. I have one roller rod and one converted 10.5 ft ugly stick with a twilli tip and it works out great. Grizzly.
  9. The unit has sold. Thanks Grizzly

    Good Ole Reliable, The Downrigger

    Awesome post. Grizzly
  11. OK, Price reduced to 225.00 plus shipping. Unit has all hardware and cabling to put the 4000 receiver anywhere on your boat. Grizzly 989 615 1665
  12. I have a 3500C Lowrance Global Map with a 4000 Lowrance Antenna to go with it. It works perfect. I won a HDS 7 and no longer have use for this. I am asking 275.00 for everything plus shipping. Grizzly. Phone: 989 615 1665

    Wire line Rods

    Last year i added a Okuma 10.5 Tournament Series to my spread. It's a sweet setup. Last night i just put a twillitip on one of my 10.5 ft Ugly Sticks. Put a Convector 45D with 1000 ft of 7 strand torpedo wire as its all i could find locally. Also added a slide diver rod into the mix as the charter i was on last weekend ran 2 of them high and back 225 to 300 these took alot of hits for us with lemon ice on both of them. So good luck with your entry into the world of wire. Flat out wire catches fish and your gonna love feeling everything that fish does. I will post my results with my modified Ugly Stick setup. Grizzl
