Full core rig is 10 colors of leadcore, 1/2 core is 5 colors, swr(secret weapon rig) rig is a 2-4 colors of leadcore off the downrigger. I typically will run 25' leads of my core setups. The upside is you get the bait 325+' behind the boat, the downside is that you do have folks that will troll through your spread at times and snag you. I will run a 5&7 colors off my outside boards and then run a full core off each side on my inside boards, a dipsey off each side, a swr rig off the corner rigger, a 16oz snap weight(pump handle) down the chute and a mono line off the other rigger for a full spread with three guys.

Hope this helps.

Sorry, about the lingo but I thought I'd throw the others out as well as you may come across some of these when looking at great lakes fishing. Pump handle is using a heavy snap weight off of a rod in the 8 oz to 20 oz range. The rod will pulse much like a down rigger rod and in essence it is the same thing, but with a smaller weight and can be varied alot more then a straight rigger set up. Down the chute refers to the center rod in the spread. With three guys I typically will run a nine rod spread and the last rod that isn't paired like the others in the spread goes straight off the back of the boat or "down the chute". It would also be the same if it was a five or seven rod spread with one splitting the middle between the riggers straight back it is down the chute. Hope this clarifies things for you, good luck and tightlines!

I will typically run the snap weights off of a mono line, have never realy tried it off steel. Yep, 8 oz up to 20 oz depending in the depths I am trying to get to. You can vary the length of the lead to the weight to any length that you want but I typically will runit 50-75' back to the ball and then freespool the weight to the bottom and crank it back up six to ten cranks to make sure the lure is going to clear. The other method is to use a line counter reel and lower the ball to a set distance down. Line counter is nice as you can easily replicate the set if you catch a fish on it.

I heard a story from a deckhand on a charter boat, of a customer pulling in a 1 pound ball, swinging it around and smacking another deckhand in the side of the head.. ouch.. yes, we have line counters on our wire,dipsy and board rods.. Thanks for the good info, I am leaving thursday night, and coming back monday..

I usually run spoons or J-plugs off of those. Green glow, black spatter back, pearl, wonderbread j-plugs have been good. Proking magnum spoons in pink alewaife, blue alewife, black/silver with glow ladder back, green alewife have all been decent spoons. Good luck out there lindy!

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
