My dad just bought a cabin on a lake north of us a ways.
We tried fishing the Lake Trout this lake is known for and did OK.
Especially considering this was our first time fishing Lakers in the summertime.
Caught some decent fish and lost some bigger ones.
My dad found some old spinners in his tackle box that did real well then were lost to the deep.
So I ordered the parts to replicate them.
Ordered several sizes so I can experiment.
These will have #3 and #4 french blades.
10# Lakers here are fairly common and fish of 50#-60#+ are know to be in this lake.
It also hosts some big burbot and grayling.
Knowing this is .035 wire going to be enough or should I opt for .041?
I can do up to .041 on my Hagen's and my Twistech.
Here's a pic of my biggest catch of the weekend 27" and roughly 8#.
