    I like the Seps release and clip it to the downrigger cable about two feet above the weight. I use Scotty cable pulls, which makes reattaching my line to the release much easier. There are times that I attach a trolling flasher to the weight but never the release.

    On a down rigger? How do you hook that up??? its connected to the weight???? or its connected to the break away. I am getting ready to put a couple DR's in the boat.

    Re: Different ways of trolling rapalas for trout

    GC check out this site http://outfittersontario.com/rapknot.htm There is some good info there.I use a duo-loc to attach my lures and troll at speeds up to 5mph and stay close to shore sometimes as shallow as 8 feet. do alot of zig zags and speed up and slow downs.sometimes it pays off and others ...well you know.I dont use any weights but I'll put them on a downrigger.Hope this helps.

    Different ways of trolling rapalas for trout

    i use a small basic swivel and attach the rapala, or the line straight to the rapala, i'll use a egg sinker to change dept. usually brocken back j-11's, and j-18's, i seem to have no luck. am i doing something wrong? it would be great if i could get a couple of tips on how to troll these properly, i've been told these catch the big boys, hoping im not just treading water. any advice would be great.
