I ran all large spoons on one of the Dipseys, no increase in size though… often that helps, not this day.My wife and I started straight out from Cranberry in 42’ Saturday evening and trolled back towards the lighthouse. Never turned around and had our 12 keepers about 1/2 way there. 1/2 the fish were 16”-17”, but the other 1/2 were nice fish, 19”-23”. All on dipseys with medium spoons, mostly moonshine, 50-80’ back.
If I had it to do over would have run large spoons. You had to check lines every 4-5 minutes or take a chance of drowning a 5” eye. Had one 5”er hit a stinger and when the dipsey (1 setting) tripped he swam over and hit the spoon on a 3 setting. Brought him in with two 4” spoons in his mouth.
