    first striper strip planned for this week!! I have been noticing in the fishing reports that there are alot of big blues mixed in with the stripers. I plan on fishing bait and some plugging. My question is, since there are so many blues mixed in with the stripers, do you recommend using a...

    Ok I am trying to search but I can seem to get what I am looking for, the search function just refined my search words to "wire". That said I am trying to find a (reliable) way to attach the tie in pint and the hooks to a plug without a thru-wire. I have been trying free hand the thru hole but...

    Is it the speed of the jig related to the bottom, or the speed of the jig in relation to the current thats important? For instance, (using 1.5mph as the optimum speed for the sake of argument) traveling with the current do you need to keep 1.5mph ahead of the current speed or just almost drift...

    on bigger plugs, like ones tht take tht taller shape to mimic a bunker shape, how does the swivel reach the thru wire... on some of these plugs the wire apears to be straight thru but the swivel is a good inch or more from the middle. Is there a special type of swivel so tht the swivel reaches...

    I'm new to the salt and would like to give trolling with wire a try. I'm wondering which knots to use at the end of the wire. I know that I need to keep the wire from getting kinked and I'm unsure of how to terminate the wire without letting it get pulled into a sharp bend. Any suggestions?

    I saw the Canal Gathering thread, with the bike. It got me thinking. Next to the bike, one of the more important items for bait fishermen on the Canal is wire leaders. Buying them is insane. For relatively short money, you can make your own for years. All of these supplies are available at Red...

    I’ve decided to make the leap and purchase a wire line rod and reel for jigging in deeper water. Currently I do all of my trolling with lead core but it’s tough to keep the jigs deep. What I’m wondering is if any one has any suggestions on which rod and reel to purchase? I’ve done some...

    I am going to try wire line jigging down Cape Cod next week. I have fished like this before but never with my own stuff. The last question I have is this....Do most guys tire a heavy mono leader to the steel and then tie the jig to the mono..or...do I twist the jig directly to the steel wire...

    Well I'm back for those that remember me from last year.....haven't done much fishing this year but that's not to say I haven't wanted to.. I went over to Race Point yesterday in my 20' boat... NOAA said SW 5-10 kt seas 1 foot or less.... yeah right! On the way back across the bay at about...

    Most of the lure pictures have the tail hook open side down. Does it make a difference? On through wiring with preformed wire...Should the pre-formed eye end be twisted before placing into the lure? Is it better to have the eye perpendicular to the water or parrallel?

    does anybody else use this line for stripers. I use 30pound test with the width of 8pound test line. It casts so smooth, onlt problem is if u have real soft finger tips, when u cast it, possibilty it will slice ur finger open, and its not the greatest feeling in the world, lol. But i dont get...

    I've never used wire line before but plan on using it this year. Anyways, I'll be using a penn senator 114h reel. Again I've never used this type of set up before so how much will this cost me? Do I spool my whole reel with the wire or only some? Do I use a mono leader.....arent stripers "line...

    I am fairly new to boat fishing. I've been toying with getting a wire line setup for some trolling. I have an old pen convential rig that I can setup but I assume I need to get a pole that can handle wire line correct? I have an older pole that would be great, can a pole be modified to handle...

    I fish in maybe 30ft of water at the deepest and have been using lead core. I am setting up my new rod but not sure if I should try wire line. I do fine the lead very easy to work with but reading I have found many use the wire.

    seeing as wire plays a big part in fishing, weather it be in the form of wire line or wire for a plug, or general everyday use, working in a Hi-tech machine shop gives me an opertunity to see all these metals( and many others that most of you never have heard of) in use and being machined on a...

    Over the winter months, I'd like to piece together a set-up for trolling wire. I plan to fish a lot more in the Bay next spring and would like to be prepared for doing some trolling in deeper water. From what I've read, lead core only works well down to about 30 feet or so, because it's so...
