I have the honer of taking one of our fighting men, home on leave from afganastan, salmon fishing this fri. Plan on being on winnie at 5am and fishing the broads will be running 6 lines. Have just bought 2 g2 stackers, any suggestions on how best to set them up. Lures? flys? can I fish a short line close to spinners or do I need to drop back with in line lead? Where best to set them up in my spread? What speed seems to work best? I would love to get this fine young solder into some salmon, even tho he is an officer, any advise would be great!

I'll e mail you in private, sometimes I talk too much about products here and lately G2 has got plenty of ink. I asked them to answer you directly, Paul said they would, but I'm not sure if they will do it here or in privtae.

But briefly if this guy has only a short time to fish, I'd go with what you are familiar with and play with the G2's another time. They can take a little playing with to get it down pat, enjoy the day.

They can be run close above blades, far back if yu want, mono or in-line lead, etc. etc.

I sent you an invitation to fish Squam on "The Barge" and I'll run you through all the G2's, Jim Rod pumpers, Digitrol IV's, etc.

Good luck tomorrow, post your results here.

Hi Bob-
The G2jiggers are simple to use and with just a little practice you will get the hang of it. Plus your fishing partner will have a trip he will not forget.
If you are using lead core let out 4-5 colors and then clip it into the release on the jigging cable. Lower it in the water 3 feet or so and observe the jigging action so you get a feel for what is happenning. Now lower the stacker 10-15 deep. This puts your lure at 25-35 feet down depending on boat speed. Don't worry about boat speed just don't go to slow. Salmon like fast. The G2 increase the lure speed to 1.5 times the boat speed every cycle and then stops it dead imitating a wounded fish. As you lower the G2 be sure to let line out of the reel, you don't want it to tight and pulling up on the jigging cable. If you dont have a fish on in 30 minutes change the lure.

Let us know how you make out.

Re: Advise needed
