I hated slide divers forever.  Touchy, Finicky, tough to store, pain in the a#s!!........then I tried them.....its like lead core....maybe a bit of a hassle....but all they do is catch fish!!   They take a little getting used to, but after a while, you will love them!!  I only run 2 riggers on my boat and I usually have 2 deep dipsys inside, and a set of slide divers above and outside of them.  They are definatly worth tying! If you do, I would reccomend the "clear" version.  They are meant to be a "stealth" presentation so I dont think you want the extra color in the water!!..IMHO

I guess its just another arrow in the quiver......and I need all the arrows i can get!! :beer:

Mono or PP with the Slide Diver rigs?  I'm ending up with too many rods!!!  2 wire and 2 PP dipsies, 2 leadcore, 4 riggers, good grief.  All I need now are Slide Divers.

Nice morning.

I have everything but Slide Divers in my boat.  Sounds like another investment in gear I need to make???  Only 2 of us in the boat ( one on crutches ) yesterday so I ran 4 riggers(2 SWR) and 2 dipsies.

The family got me a Garmin 340C for Christmas this year and I'm still trying to figure out what it is showing me.  Never had color before!!!

The subtroll was showing between 43 and 44 at 40 feet.

We got 3 lakers and 1 small king yesterday.  The king came right at the end of the UH breakwall.  3 of the 4 came on Silver Streak Watermellon and 1 laker on a meat head with artificial meat.

This is Mike.  The Canon electrics and manuals that I had listed are gone.  Thanks anyway.

Great trip and great report Keith.

I think you hit it right on the head about using the mono leader.  Years ago when I first spooled up with some spider wire, I had the same experience.  Added the mono leader and a huge difference.

Brett, it's a material called Pellon.  Bought some at Ben Franklin.  Kind of like felt, but seems very tough.

Guys, I bought herring from Thills last year and made my own, filet, salted, and then soaked in herring oil.  It worked, but what a chore!

Going to try these this year.  Made them myself, added glow paint, and glitter glue.  Will soak in herring oil too.  It it works, will surely be a good solution.

I switched over to all Walker electrics last fall and have 4 downriggers for sale.  I was going to advertise them in the Mining Journal until I found this website yesterday and figured I would offer them here first.

2 older Canon electrics with 4 foot booms, ball retrievers, and swivel bases.  $300 for the pair.

2 like new Canon Uni-trol manuals with 60" telescoping booms, ball retrievers, and swivel bases.  $325 for the pair.

Highline, I called this afternoon and left my number.

I had a bunch of wheel weight lead here at the house I picked up years ago from Curly at Firestone, when they gave it away.  I believe you have to pay for it these days.  The finished weights have a slight pancake shape to them.  Very nice.

I bought a Do-It 12# mold this winter from Cabela's and have just finished making enough 12# weights to last the rest of my fishing days.  Paid $59 plus shipping, and will sell for $30 if anyone would like to make their own.  Holler if interested.
