  1. I dont think it matters personally. Ive done well on anything from plain lead, black, green, orange, chrome, shiny reflector tape, no tape, coated non coated. As mentioned above, its a delievery devise, not the main attraction.

    Coated black is my preference though if i had to choose one. I agree with the above, its the delivery devise, not the main event. So, having them look at what you want them to bite isnt a bad thing.

  2. I agree, never hook onto the core itself.

    For best results you need to dedicate each rod to x amount of colors.

    No matter what length core or copper i have, i always back it with Power Pro and put on a 30' section of mono between the braid and copper/core simply for attaching to the board as mono is more forgiving on the releases and the releass flat out grip better to mono. This allows me to have flexibility when setting my lines. I can hook on just after the core/copper, 10' past, 20' past 30' past the core/copper to fine tune depth some. Ive seen days where that subtle difference makes the difference too.

    Lastly, if your lead core gets damaged say, in the middle, all is not lost. You do not have to scrap the core and use it as two new segments. You can simply splice in a piece of 30# power pro and your back in action. Use a double Willis knot and your good to go. I have a ten color with a splice in it cause a king screwed it up. Never had an issue with it fishing this way.

  3. Dang, thats a bummer. I lost a spoon the other day to a rambunctious steelhead with my mom on the rod. He went under the starboard rigger over the diver then came back out the same way he came and got into the port side rigger in about 3 seconds. I grabbed the line, got the net under him just as it snapped. Got the fish and main line spoon, but my Elberta Clipper Free Slider and Standard U of M frog is long gone....lol...Not so bad compared to you cats...OUCH
