Thanks OGF guys for the posts with great info!! We had a great day on our 1st trip east. Best quality bunch of eyes in the cooler ever #6-7 only 1 #3. 14 for 17 only 4 others..colorados 3oz in lines 135-145' 1.4-1.8mph & dipseys 3 105' back..small pods of fish three times hookups on rods next to each other. Your posts were key to slowing down usually trolling 2.0-2.6 after May and been struggling. Should have been using the tattle flags as the big fish were swimming with it checking lines and fish on. Anyone having issues with the quick change clevises slinging the blades off before netting the fish?? Lost 4 blades on the 1st 5 fish...Tks Again TC
Nice job on the fish. The tattle flags helped us alot. We had a few hit hard, but half the bites all we saw was the flag down and back end of board drop a little. Don't be afraid to make your own, its a lot cheaper.
i had the problem real bad last year with losing blades. i get most of of my harnesses from galeforcetackle.com and all the ones i had got were tied with the quick change clevices. and we ran out of the good ones fast. then we just improvised. but when i reordered i told him about the problem. he replaced all the blades i lost plus gave me a few free samples. and made up all my new ones with the solid clevices. which is no big deal as he ties all mine up anyway. he doesnt list tandem rigs on his site but he will tie them up tandem if you ask him to. and i get all mine in tanden with solid clevices and no leader. just the harness, its just much easier to store them this way, then just use whatever length leader i want.
he also has this new harness, its got an attractor above a harness. these are just awesome looking rigs. they have spider webs with spiders on them. he sent me a few samples. a blue one and a red one and this real awesome green. but i dont know how to post pictures on here. but you can ask him to email you some pictures of the eyeliminator rigs. i will try mine out on the 8th or 9th depending on the weather at geneva.
