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..

oh, about the 1 pound balls, you running spoons with those? flashers? flys?

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!

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.

    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
