    Have you ever trolled a surface iron?

    4 to 4.5 knots. If you know you will be trolling them then you can put on a ball bearing swivel, and 60-80 lb leader. That eliminates twisting the line, and the speed will also help then to not spin. Keep them in the water. Trolling works best with heavier 6-7 inch models regardless of make.

    closed lakes rant

    It amazes me that they close the parks, which bring in income and keep people from actually working for a living, but keep the entitlements going out to people who don't do shit. Kind of a funny way to run a business.

    MLPA: Bad for Fishing, Worse for Bait Harvesting

    They (environmentalists) don't care if you have bait to fish with. They hope you cannot fish at all. That is their goal. It does not have to make sense if you know what they are truly after. And that is you sitting on the sand and looking at the water. That's it

    When trolling a jig the leader allows heavier line to be used. Chaffing on lighter line (20, 30, or 40?) could severly weaken the line as it goes through the head. Heavier line also provides for more strength where the line could rub on teeth, gill plates, fins, and body. If casting jigs...

    Squid do not have a swim bladder, and no bones. They do not show up well on your sounder. They look like blue fuzz when on the bottom. Blue specs when suspended in mid water. They are not the blobs of red that schools of baitfish are. Try buying and watching the DVD from Pacific Edge...
