150 & 210 #32  COPPER GETS YOU DOWN 41 & 55.9 FT AT 2.0 ADD ROUGHLY 8 FT PER .5 MPH DECREASE IN SPEED, SO ABOUT 49 FT & 64 FT AT 1.5 MPH IS MY BEST GUESS.

Tried one for a short period on Saturday during the tournament. Wish I would have put it out earlier. They really get down in a hurry and run well behind an inline board.

Hay JustFishin I have been using bloodrun 32lb copper for years now for walleye I very seldom run any lead core over 5 color. lot faster in and out and you can feel the fish fight more. 125ft 150ft 175ft are my best most days.  I run them off my church boards wit no problem. And I will also use them for spring salmon fishing on lake ontario.

300 copper is deadly on the eyes.  getting down 62-65ft depending on speed.  don't tell anyone....its a secret!   Auroralite big boards with three 300 coppers off each side.

I knew I should have broken out my 300 copper I use for salmon yesterday. Walleye were down 60 to 70 and 10 color lead couldn't reach them.

Blood Run Walleye copper 250 foot gets down past a 10 color.  The smaller diameter walleye copper fits on smaller reel than the heavier salmon copper- I have 250 ft with good backer on a Daiwa 57LC.

I thought the 45# 300 Copper got down to 80 feet?

To me lead core up to 5 colors is a better choice than copper.  Over 5 colors (150 ft of line)  copper has a place vs lead core so for depth minimum would be in the range of 30 to 35 fow.  I’ve run some short 75’ and 85’ coppers and gone back to lead core.  I get copper out when fish are down 50’ or more and 10 colors aren’t firing.  A guy could probably do ok by using copper in lieu of 8 and 10 color rigs.  For walleye I’ve used Bloodrun Walleye Copper with a smaller diameter than LO salmon copper.  If you have the larger diameter salmon copper figure your dive curve for the heavier copper.  I used the smaller diameter to stay away from the big reels like the Penn 345 I used for a 500 copper on Lake Ontario.  It’s fun to try different stuff.

Thank you. Yeah I was looking to try something different for walleye.   we also started to fish lake ontario.  Trying get stuff for their also.   The last two years for walleye we haven't had to go past 50 f.o.w  do our best around 32 f.o.w. leadcore/copper seem interesting.
