    Waterdog: I have done well in the Past with them. The 1/4oz ones in All White (Body, Blade, Feathers) Also the Firetiger have done well up there!!! Crane Swivel about 4' in front will do just fine. Just find what speed you like. Run it next to the boat. Don't remember the speed i used to run... Getting Old. Lol Robbie

    Trolling weights with a bead chain are you friend trolling spinners. 12# florocarbon leaders don't twist as bad and the trolling weight saves your mainline for the most part. Doesn't have to be heavy and you can speed up a little if you want it to fish shallower.

    Fun part of trolling spinners is bass and crappie love them too, so it's kind of potluck fishing.

    Condolences, it's hella rough. That's the reason for a new pup I couldn't take not having a dog around. My last golden got cancer at 8, last one went 15. Always wanted a chocolate, and damn is she a spitfire. Like having a 5 year old all over, she rides shotgun.

    Correct! She's coming up on her first bday, and we hunt it Sunday, praying for rain. Just getting into waterfowl, it's amazing. Cami is ready!

    One of my friends trolls them using trolling swivels to Ford Fenders with a 2 and 1/2 liter to a swivel and another 2 and 1/2 liter to a snap swivel. He swears by them but I have not tried it yet.

    Swivel then another swivel, add two more swivels, and a swivel for good measure, lol. Line twisting machines they are!
