  1. Customer field testing pics, thanks again for sharing, helping us get the word out and helping other fishermen for sure! 🙂 Hope everyone's Trophy Trout & Salmon trolling going good this year. Kings running big this year again! Plant numbers down, water levels & bait numbers up, seems to be coming together for the fishery, good luck out there!

  2. Got idea for this rig from NW Pacific trollers - running #3.5 or #4 blade size trolling spinners behind flashers - made up some hi-vis UV spinners, combined w/ 8" SpinDoctors - maybe on to something here - were running this last July homeport Menominee, MI came in with a nice salmon & took 1st place in our local derby! am thinking the spinner adds just enough action to trigger strikes from fish that would otherwise just follow? okay, later - good luck this next spring!

  9. 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
  10. 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!"
  11. HeadHunterâ„¢ SuperGlow Spoons! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E51POrhTsQk HeadHunter SuperGlow Spoons!!!
  12. 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 -
  13. Great Lakes Trolling Flies! Great Lakes Trolling Flies! Big Trout & Salmon #BiteMe! Uber-excited about the new UV Hi-Visibility Fly Materials, from our friends at "PurpleTacoFlySupply.com"! Great Lakes Tackle & Outfitting (Anxious for spring too!)
  14. 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 -
  15. 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
