  1. Welcome Great Lakes Fishermen!  We run a small online tackle shop, GL-Tackle.com.  Each season we field test new stuff, the ones that catch the most & get the best feedback go into next season's production run.  Thank you for sending in the pictures and tips w/ setups & what worked for you, very much appreciated & helping other fishermen for sure!

    Okay, good luck out there and tight lines!

    Dipsey Long Leads?

    interesting question & comments - thinking behind the longer leads and slide divers is to add more stealth, but what about the opposite, short leads behind the dipsey w/ spin doctors/flys seems to produce too, anyone had luck more so one way or the other? we've hand lined quite a few - always exciting

    Non UV Spoons

    Hi JDH, one more thought, from your spoon pic w/ the ladderbacks, fluorescent,non UV, shows up very bright under blacklight - was wondering what this would look like down deep (what the salmon see?) Does anyone remember running fluorescent painted spoons before UV was available? sounds like a fun field testing challenge -

    Non UV Spoons

    Hi JDH - I thought maybe the gold & silver spoons reflected light more so than nickel plated spoons? Non-UV, but very flashy, maybe good to run during bright days? The pic is a std chartreuse Mister Twister tail under black light - really lights up, is this considered UV or fluorescent or are they the same? On same topic, notice many glow spoons seem to light up nice under blacklight too, so some UV properties here too? Thanks for starting this one, hoping for more to weigh in too! Fishknocker
