  1. 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
  2. Very Cool Andy! I forgot about that fly w/ the purple beads - we have some new stuff for 2017 coming your way, made up some custom spoons w/ your boat name "No Guarantees!"
  3. HeadHunter™ SuperGlow Spoons! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E51POrhTsQk HeadHunter SuperGlow Spoons!!!
  4. Downrigger Weights Poured some downrigger weights for our boat "Team Busch" 16oz cans ended up 10lbs ea., next time might try the 24oz monster cans? Tip from "How-to" article in Great Lakes Angler magazine -

  6. 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 -
  7. 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
  8. "Still getting clean kings!!! GL-Tackle red headhunter spoon and fireflies jellyfish still catching." "Team meals on reels getting on the kings while setting lines!!! Here is my sister with a nice king taken on a GL-Tackle zombie apocalypse." FireFlies Aint No Joke Productions Thanks again Nick! Awesome catch! Tom S. - FishKnocker - GL-Tackle.com (pike pic from Eagle Lake, Ontario - were field testing, this spoon outfished our daredevils & husky jerks 6:1 - Joey caught (10) pike or so)
  9. Nick put this one to video - pretty cool! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E51POrhTsQk
  10. Nick Hutchinson w/ Ain't No Joke Productions fishing out of Racine, WI: "Went out tonight with 1 purpose and that was to catch kings!!! GL-Tackle spoons did all the work! UV DepthRaider, Zombie Apocalypse and HeadHunter SuperGlow did most of the damage. These spoons are awesome!" "Six kings in 53 minutes - was a little chaotic!" Thanks Nick!!!

  11. The green Headhunter spoon even catches Cisco. I've caught lakers, kings and now Cisco on the green. Red has caught kings and lakers. Great spoon from GL-Tackle.com Craig Keller at Daydreamer Charters, 8-21-16 Thanks Capt. Craig! Tom Schultz, FishKnocker
  12. Just wanna say u got 1 heck of a spoon there. All 3 of the big fish were caught on them. 2 on blue, 1 on green. We caught 16 that day (plus some salmon) and the majority were off them. Very impressed. I already order another set and I'm sure a few of my buddy's will be in future. John M., fishing out of Ontonagon, MI trolling towards Porcupine Mtn's Thanks John! Awesome Catch!!!

  13. Sorry about that - I agree w/ the comments, sometimes we get pics in from customers w/o the details, conditions... still excited for them, put a nice king in the box w/ one of our lures! Also, spoke w/ Chad Lapa, he set us up w/ a link to update the banner ads - should be up now for here & Lake Ontario United. And I agree w/ the donations & support, we have spent a lot on advertising and tackle giveaways for tournament sponsoring, we do not always see the return in orders, but is part of the business & getting the word out, mostly enjoy the feedback when we are helping someone put fish in the box!

  15. hang in there, you will be hooked up soon! lot's of good tips above, 2.9gps speed works good for salmon, run that one flasher behind the dipsey at all times, I think the flasher gets them in from quite a distance - some guys laugh, but we've had some luck running dipsey, flasher & spoons - NW Pacific style, 42" leader to spoon. we haven't had too much luck this year w/ downriggers, seems like all the hits lately on the dipseys. I agree w/ the early morning, 120-130' back on #3 settings, working out to 240' or so mid morning to mid afternoon - sometimes turning will trigger the followers, s-curves or big figure 8's if not too many other boats, then remember the angle when you get the strike -
