Re: Question - G2 with in line lead

with the jig ball and stacker im mostly using a mono setup. i do have a one color setup i use sometimes with about a 60 foot leader and 6 to 8 foot tippet. the jigging board i use the trolling 150 foot fly line early in the year, swithched to a 3 color setup until a few weeks ago, now im speeding things up and seem to need wire to get it down to the depth i want which is typically 20 to 25 feet deep like john mentioned 3 mph plus and you need to put out alot of wire. all those setups have 60 to maybe 80 feet leader. i think the wire doesnt belly out like the leadcore after 4 or so colors. this is a strange year, water is really hot and im finding salmon right on top on the lake i fish

Actauly Mike, we have used mono quite a bit off the G2 Stacker, especially when running blades below the G2 Stacker (hot set up) but off the G2 ball we are using more and more lead core set ups.

The G2 Board we run 50 to 100 fet main line, 4 colors in-line lead and 100' of mono after that, same set up as Jim's Rod Pumper, deadly on both, even with a slow bite.

Are you still running primarily streamers ? Paul has a few new hot patterns, Orange Ghost, Congnac and some "no name" Orange Whiskers pattern, also one I thnk he calls a Perch Marvel (orangish in color) Not sure if they are all new, but they were new to me and I hit with them all, Orange (always a good color 0n spoons) seems to be better lately with the tough bite.

Have a nice weekend, I'm heading up this afternoon, not sure how long I'll be staying, depends on the bite. May come back Friday afternoon, lol.

Hope UPS and the Mailman bring some goodies before I leave today.

Re: Question - G2 with in line lead

orange and gold has been good for us, been using spoons and flies. been using some of those squid style flies that jim gave us a few years back with some success. havent used the ball much since getting the stackers, can run the short quick jig on the forward rigger and either the 4 or 8 on the back rigger, still not sure which works better, i think its a day to day thing
