  1. I'm setting up 4 copper rods for the upcoming season. Can anyone help me with what I should use for backing? And it was suggested to me to put it in 100 ft increments with mono in between to allow me to use different lengths? His anyone heard of that? What kind of knots or crimps for the copper? Thanks as always to everyone on here.
  2. As always I'm leaning on you guys for help. I have managed to have a free weekend and would love to get on big water one more time. Would love to chase steelies,browns maybe salmon. I was thinking Holland but willing to travel. Any ideas where to start? What do I use? Or should I grab the aluminum boat and hit the rivers? Thanks again to everyone in here that shares info and knowledge!
  3. I am looking to upgrade 6 rods in the off season. I currently run 2 leadcore and 2 mono divers and 4 rigger. Can anyone tell me how to set up 2 wire rods and 4 copper? Or how would you set up? Thanks to everyone.
  4. I have been tied up and will miss the rest of salmon season but was hoping anyone could fill me in on tips for open water browns. Any I usually fish out of Ludington. Any tips about where what to run would be helpful. Thanks!
  5. What troll speed? Also, awesome fish thanks for the updates!
  6. I have two rods set up with 1 full core on each. Can you use these with planers? Any idea on how to fish lead core would be greatly appreciated. I'm kind of a gear goober and have the stuff just don't know how to use it.
  7. I'm thinking about heading to Onekema the first weekend of Aug. can anyone give me any insight? Is it a good time of year? If so any tips? Thanks in advance !
  8. I have 2 spreader lights that I leave on but I don't catch many fish so it's like a nighttime boat ride.....
  9. Grant, As you can see by my tag I have no idea what I'm doing. When you say spring tackle what do you mean? Or anyone? I have spoons,flies, is there anything I'm missing? I have never fished the spring. Thanks
  10. Have a newbie question. I have been connecting my lures directly to a quick connect. Is there any need to directly tie the lure to the line? Any input would be great. Thanks!
  11. I just picked up 2 this week. Although I haven't used them yet. They seem to be good construction although still a polymer body. It's a step up from the magda reels. Hope this helps.
  12. Thanks to everyone who has replied. I am looking forward to to coming spring. Last year I accidentally caught a few salmon and would like to improve my odds this year.
  13. Thanks for the info! It is greatly appreciated. I'm chomping at the bit to start fishing.
  14. I am fairly new to salmon fishing. I have a Lowerance elite 5 sonar unit. I was wondering if anyone can tell me if/how I can see the thermalcline with this unit? I have read all of the literature with this unit and can't find a definitive answer. Any input would be great.
