Just bought these for full core set ups but every time we had a fish or tried to bring them in they dove and it was next to impossible to get them back up. How do you guys use these?
You would (or want to) have a different release than what comes with a TX-44 if you wan't it to release. With the weights moved forward on the 44's pull in easier and no diving problems.Set them so they release instead of having to fight a board to the boat. Then just Throw a bead above your bait about 5 ft or so to stop it from sliding all the way down. That's how I would do it. I still run big boards but if I did use them that's what I would do.
