To troll the SCR w BB and Harnesses what is a good speed to maintain. Also am I correct that in order to have a 45 deg angle would you multiple your depth x 1.66
Holy Cow!:SHOCKED: If I thought I had to figure that out to go fishing, I would take up golf! Wait --I do golf :tdo12: , but anyway, that is a lot of math for a relaxing fishing trip. You are probably right, but isnt there an easier figure, like 1 oz of lead to 10 ft water? and just fast enough to turn the blades. That seems to work for me.scubajay said:As for the 45 degree angle, that is correct, but, the formula that you use is from Pythagoreans theorem. That is A² + B² = C². Where A is the distance in feet from the tip of the rod to the bottom. Since you are trying to achieve 45 degree angle A = B. So, C can be solved by the taking the square root of A² + B². So for a distance of 25 feet from the tip to the bottom in order to achieve a 45 degree angle let out approximatley 35.35 feet of line.
:yeahthat: I went fishing last year with slick fishing (on this site) and this is what he did but he also paid attention to his GPS speed. I took what I learn from Slick and it help me a lot. I'm getting ready to go over to SCR soon to catch some of Slick's fish. Thanks again Slick.FishTales said:I would think if you just go fast enough to make the spinner turn, then let out enough line to tap the bottom, you should be good.
Leave all that figuring to the school kids and just catch fish. :lol:
I used 4 oz'ers. 3' to 6' leaders.BigDaddy said:Can somebody please help with the size of BB being used? How long are the harnesses? A picture or a PM would do wonders for a rookie trolling harness on the SCR. What about handlining with a harness? Thanks for any info.
Thats funny Newtothervr Gilly will love to hear you caught them on green because I think thats his favorite color:lol: Cya Slicknewtothervr said:The other day, we ran the Slick Special (gold beads & clown blades) on one side and green beads and blades on the other side. Green caught all the fish for us. But that's just me. Just check the pics in Slicks posts for proof of his set up. We stayed between 1.9 and 2.1 for speed and used 3 oz BB.
