Depth estimates vs weight - coho rigs
Used Jason's point in another post about speed… 1.8-1.9. Notice it doesn't take a bunch more to get the dodgers spinning.
I use the light line, as I'm using my walleye stuff. I did by two more reels (Larger), and will spool them with Lake MI varieties of line for the future. Just getting my feet wet.
I think I'll go looking for one of Jason's schools in the future…. my learning curve could use the help. Having fun so far though.
Not trying to tell you you can't but I'd bump up that 12lb to at least 15. I run 20lb on my rigger rods and they double as my Coho board rods. You can do it...but if you have a nice BOW or KING take a rip on that set-up...you're probably gonna be out the whole deal from the board back. I run keel weights of 1 1/4oz for surface fishing. I'll run my outside boards leads back 50' and inside boards at 75'. Keep your weights close to the dodger...5-8' ahead of it, and then let your line back. IMHO the dodger acts a little better and a bit more consistent action as well.
