    Harness making

    The wire I have is so light and flexible it will be about the same as mono. Last longer, more zebra mussel resistant and easier to store. IMO

    Harness making

    I have a bulk spool of Sevalon 27# test coated 7 wire.It is copper colored stainless. I think it will work very well.Very flexible and holds a knot well.I would trade wire for some finished harnesses.I have been using it for years for wire divers.

    2018 Ice season

    Was a short but sweet ice season on the big lake.Last trip was last Thursday.If the open water season is anything like the ice season was it's going to be a great season.Pull that ice boom and let the games Begin.
  4. Fished solo out of the Catt boxed 5 and a couple of shorts.85 to 91' all on harnesses.A rainbow crushed a harness while I was lowering my downrigger. it jumped at least 6 times behind the boat before it spit the hook.

    Hybrid lures???

    My guess is he is fishing and not painting.
  6. Fished out of the Catt with a friend from 10-6. 85 to 95fow 75 to 80 on the riggers. 200 to 240 back on Dipsies 1 and 3 setting. box 8, couple throw backs,dropped a couple.
  8. That is correct. The rings come in 2 sizes.If you are running 2 dipseys or 2 slide divers on 1 side of the boat you can run the larger rings on you inside rod so it dives deeper with less line out.Smaller ring on the outside with more line out.Gives you a better spread and less tangles.
  9. The performance rings in my link above will also fit Lure Jensen dipsy divers.
  10. I don't think it's for stealth.It's hard to get a 3.5in. dipsy threw a1/4in. guide
  11. You can buy a larger rings for more depth.It's got to be easier to deploy and not have to hand line.
  12. I fished solo most of the summer.It can really be challenging,I really kind of enjoy it.Yesterday I switched things up a bit and went to Ontario.Fat 10 lber.can be a handful but not as much as a 30lb king especially with a dipsey rod with long lead pulling a flasher fly.I really had my hands full.Hope you find a net man good luck.
  13. I had a nice limit fishing Saturday working the deeper water to the West of the Catt.Only had one in my limit under 20" one about 5 another about 7lbs.but I had to work for them.
  14. Fished solo out of the Catt.headed West. Managed 7 eyes only 1 short. Lost a couple at the boat. All fish caught form 85-94Ft. 75- 85 down on the riggers. !75 to 200ft. back on my dipsey. All on harnesses Copper watermelon and black and pink.
  15. Fished off the Catt. 9/5 short solo trip 1-4. Fished from 80-90ft. Only managed 1 good Walleye about 4lbs. Was pulling harnesses caught about 8 Perch.Every time I checked my riggers I was pulling a Perch or a whitey or my bait was gone.Tried sticks for awhile to no prevail.
