Also it is based on 10lb mono. If you use braid it would probably be pretty close, but if you are running 20-25lb mono it's going to be different. Not sure what the conversion would be.

Note that the attached is for 1.5 mph speed, because weights are speed dependent, at salmon speed you'll need to let out more line to get the same depths.

I highly doubt 50 ft back on 2 oz weight will be 25 down.  Maybe at 1 MPH.  The Offshore chart shows to get 25 down with a 4 oz weight is around 130 back at 2 MPH.

With a 2 oz weight, you can use a 2:1 ratio.  30 feet back equals 15 feet down; 50 feet back is 25 feet down, etc.

I would use a 2 oz inline weight and trolling boards. You can use spoons and cranks with that set-up. You will need to experiment with how many feet behind the board but I would start with about 50 feet. Mrt.

Looking for some tips on trolling set ups for new boaters. I fish the piers often but don't have any dipseys or down riggers for going out in the boat. Will an egg sinker work for keeping spoons down while trolling? cranks? Please PM with any advice, thanks in advance and tight lines.
