Weighted Steel – VS – Copper Depths

Recommended Posts

Going to put some more time and effort with the Weight Steel the next couple of months.  Last year I had one rod setup with a 200-feet Weighted Steel and it was very productive.  Sometimes it was the only things that would fire on the boat.  So, I have a few questions.

First question is does everyone agree that the obtainable depths using copper can be obtained using the weighted steel assuming you are using the 19 stranded wire with the Weighted Steel?

Second question does anyone have a chart for the copper depths base on length?  I understand this is just a baseline as boat speed and what lure (flasher/Fly or spoon) is connected will make a big difference.  Looking for the following depths for these copper lengths: 50, 100, 200 and 400 feet of copper. 

If someone has a depth chart for Weighted Steel that would be very helpful and save me a lot of time trying to figure this out. 

Thank you for your time.
