In an effort this year to do more precision trolling instead of just "that looks pretty good" trolling, I have a question for those in the know. I've got some Magda 30 reels that are the line counter type that I use for running dipsys and leadcore in the fall for Salmon. They are spooled up with 30lb big game mono and a few of them have a couple hundred feet of 30 lb braid for running the dipsys. I want to swap these reels over to my Walleye rods. I'm going to cut off the leadcore and probably even the braid because I know that doesn't hold well in the planer board releases. Is there any advantage to splicing a couple hundred feet of some lighter pound test on to the 30 lb? Bottom bouncers are what I'm most comfortable with, but I'd also like to start running a bandit program this year if that's what the fish want on any particular day. Of course these reels are a bit of overkill for Walleye, but do I really need to go out and buy 6 smaller levelwind, line counter reels? Thoughts anyone?
