When using 8" spin doctors I just use them out of the package. If you're using a larger paddle I believe they need to be lengthened a bit.

We run meat a far amount of the time but usually are using the strips and rigs designed for them. Most of the bait shops have a pretty good supply of rigs. We always run it behind a flashers, either Spin Doctor, Stinger, or Big Weenie.

Coppers usually get the most meat rigs but last year we experimented more with putting it on a wire diver and it was our best set up at times.

Get a kayak, Robbollio! Although, I used to be able to point to gas prices as a big reason to fish from a kayak. There goes that. The thing I like about fishing from a kayak, is that I get to fight every fish I hook up with - I'm selfish that way.

Brads cut plugs. So much easier. I run them naked. I gotta get a new boat....

We had good look with meat rigs on wire dipsys this year. Usually get the meat from Lake Michigan Angler but Jalenkys is suppose to be selling some this year too.

Well in my experience with meat rigs, which isn't a whole lot, but have been using them for a few years.

Make sure you have a good roll to the meat, experiment with different colors (one day it can be blue, the next day green or red) and try meat rigs on different rod set ups (dipsy, riggers, 10oz etc..) One year the rigs were hot on our dipsy rods, the next it was a clean meat rig/no flasher on a 300 copper.
