Duck Enemy #1
Anyone know where I can pick up snubbers in the Akron Area? Now that the Steelhead are biting I would like to keep some of my tackle intact.
How far does the snuber stretch? I run a 6ft 20# fluorocarbon leader and with the 6ft of leader I don't have much more room to net fish in my 19fter. I could buy a longer net I guess. I like what Ez said also. It helps with the lazy or younger rod realers. My 12 year old has a habit of "pumping the rod" when realin in fish. He has lost a few pretty good size ones when he drops the rod tip. But hes learning lol
Lundy,For salmon with wire line dipsy's I use a very loose drag setting but use a release just above the reel. When the salmon hits it pulls the line free from the release and then you have the fish on a loose drag to allow you to remove the rod from the rod holder. If you have never tried to remove a wire line dipsy rod from a rod holder with a 25lb + king on the other end you just can't appreciate how difficult that simple little task can be.
