KEY:

  1. depth of indication on fish finder                           
  2. trolling line length                                                    
  3. 40 #mono dia. .033                                                    
  4. wire dia. .020                                                        
  5. 35 #lead core dia. .033                                           
  6. 35 #Spectron dia. .0165                                             
  7. 30 # Fire line dia. .015
  8. 50 #Fire line dia. .019
  9. 30 # Spiderwire dia. .009
  10. 40 # Spiderwire dia. .011
  11. 50 # Spiderwire dia. .012
  12. 60 # Spiderwire dia. .013

The figures above include 2 of depth for a medium weight lure, 6 to 10 ounces and a 30 mono leader. Add 1-2 for a heavy lure, eg. A MoJo and subtract 1 for a light lure below 6oz/ Fine-tuning as components change, eg. 12 fluorocarbon leaders vs. 30 mono can only be done through experience. Depths are for a boat speed of 3mph. For 2.5 mph multiply depth by 1.3 and for 3.5 mph by 0.8.
