    Dominator or Apollo this weekened?

    Thinking about giving it a shot this weekend, anyone else going on either of these trips? Do I need to buy rockcod rigs or can I just tie dropper loops? Also, how deep do they fish and how much lead am I going to need to get down? Any comments help, thanks.
