2K,

I spool up Power pro backing, then tie on 25 or 30 lb Mono, then lead core, finally 25 lb Flurocarbon.

The reason for the mono is I like clamping my boards to it, the boards stay on better and mono doesn't chew up the pads on the boards as bad.  Also if you are putting on 1 or 2 colors of lead you can spool a bunch of mono on to fill up the reel in case you get a monster on. Just my opinion, but maybe it will help.

As for fishing, slow out of Kewaunee Sat evening and Sun morning.

Didn't bite great Sunday morning. Water was too warm 60° north of the light house. Fished 40 fow right by the north water tower to the TR piers. Water was 56-53°. Ended with 5 kings, only two were donkeys worthy of a pic. Go plugging!

Well they didn't bite great Sunday morning. Wanted to fish the plant, water was 60°. Should have turned circles in front of the TR pier. Picked up 5 fish. The two are only worth a picture. 40 fow right by the north water tower. Water was 56°. Good luck to all. Go plugging! Made a navy vet happy.

I only get out 2-3 times a year, Was out yesterday late afternoon for first time and noticed how most were trolling into the waves, is there a reason behind it? I only have a 18' and tried to but couldn't control worth a darn.

2k it means to run separate rods with only that many colors on and clip it to the power pro not good to clip it to the lead core line. Most common are 3 5 7 and 10 color rods. Went out this mornin for 2 hours went 1 for 2 with a 12 pounder on 5 colors dodger fly. Tight lines

This may be a dumb question to most but, my question is: when talking about leadcore such as saying:  "the 5 color 4 color 3 color....." does that mean you are just letting out that many colors of a full spool of 10colors on the reel?  And then clipping the birdie on the lead? Or does it mean ur riggin up just 3,4,5 colors of lead exactly, then tie a blood knot and run braid the rest of the way and then clip birdy to the braid?

thanks a bunch for any info

Whitefish have been very predictable this year.  We have done consistently jigging 100-120' east and north of Two Rivers.  Not limiting out but catching more than we could eat.  I dont like to freeze them.  1/2-1oz jigging spoon (fle-fly) on the botton and a #3 swedish pimple about 18" up tied to hang horizontal.  Minn kota spotlock has been been very helpful.  Idle around til you find them the stop and drop.  Much better tasting than the whitefish from the bay.  The whitefish usually disappear about the middle of July.  Tight lines.
