Some people say mono others say braid etc. Do you fill the entire spool from start to finish with say 10# test mono? Can I run boards on 10# test? Do I have to re-spool for summertime while using dipsey's? Any help would be greatly appreciated and I value your opinion. All advice from anyone will be much appreciated.
    10# will work but i'd go with 12# myself. you want to use braid for dipsies. mono just has to much stretch for tripping a diver. most people use 30# power pro for running dipsies with a 6' to 8' fluro leader. i use 20# seaguar premier leader. when spooling braid i use 150' of 17# mono as backer on my sg17lca reels then 300' of braid. never use mono for divers it just wont work. always use a mono backing for braid. if you don't use a mono backing you'll have a problem with the line slipping on the spool. you can use 30# braid for boards and divers. no need to have reels spooled with mono and reels spooled with braid. also braid will last for yrs. I've been running the same braid for over 10 yrs. mono should be replaced at least every yr.

    Eye, I know this is going to raise some eye brows but I have been running 17# strene for five or six years now. I just check the first 20 ft. or so for nicks and remove if found. Haven't had a break off yet. Knock on some wood!

    Sounds good! I've been to Crabby Joe's once and they had great food. Never been to Crow's Nest. I'll have to check that place out.

    Thanks Sherman, I will definitely put that info to use. I really appreciate all the help I can get being the "noob" on the lake!

    i fish the central basin and most times fish in rough water. if the screw is to loose all i get is false releases. i still get a few with the screws set tight enough so there not releasing all the time. and it still takes a pretty good jerk to trip a diver out 150' to 200' when the fish are deep.


    just want to add if its working for you then that's great. stick with what works, right? i don't really know what was used before braid for divers. but just because it works doesn't mean mono is better than braid. to each there own. i'll stick with braid myself.
