I've always used the same 3 color that I fish for walleyes on Green Bay. My only problem is keeping SWR from getting in occasional fights with my pound ball / wire line rig. The longer length also has that lag time between the moment the release pops and ,when quickly reeling, you feel the weight of the fish and the rod bends again. Secret weapon rig is a stealth maneuver that puts the lure down and back from the turbulence of the down rigger ball.

The original SWR is 2 colors of leadcore. Some use other lengths. In addition to 2 color I also have a 3 color. This gives more separation if one SWR is working and I want to run 2. I run them on the outside riggers and 3 color the deepest. In a pinch when shallow water fishing, this gives me additonal shallow leadcores but not ideal to run Off Shores on med-light 8' Ugly stiks.

How much line do you put out after the 2core before attaching the line to the down rigger.
