    Default my style

    I use several different blades. #3, 4, 5 Indiana and #4 and 5 Colorado. There is smooth, hammered ( big dent and little dent ) and Hex. There are more styles but this is what I use. Here is a pic of one I used during June that was on my rod. I use single beads and stacker style for bead patterns. Red is normally part of my patterns for the blood look. I buy most of my gear from Janns Netcraft in Maumee.

    do you use fluoro as the leader? also what # test? i've typically used 15 lb berkely vanish but wondered if lighter line or fluoro would work better.

    don't really think it matters if the fish are on. I us Trilene XT in red 17 lb. Red vanishes in water depth. Catch fish on them and that is what matters

    Default line

    17 pound Vanish by Berkley. I use for casting and bb rigs. Used the same line for over several years. If you tie it correctly you wont have any problems.

    Default site has been good for me

    Just wanted to say i watch this site and because of it finally had a very good year for walleye,live in michigan but launch out of turtle creek-oak harbor,i really did well this year all the way through with reef runners,even early in muddy water.
    wanted to ask about the true trips and getting smaller fish white bass small walleye ,can you tell they are on? can you trip them?i have not used a diver yet just clip sinkers,they are simple and easy,the true trips look like they would pull hard?
    any advice on how to and what to use for a diver-i like easy simple ,have not used spoons yet and would like to try it,would clip sinkers and spoons be ok,
    also wanted to say the method of pulling the walleye fillets apart and pulling the bones and veins out in a quick easy couple of steps really is something and makes big difference in taste and bones.
    you ohio folks have the walleye fishing,no question about it hope it continues
