What size leader.trim knots ..sharpen hooks..what clarity is the water.
Rats your getting to technical here but just for shits and giggles I use a Fenwick '10 "6 rod with an Abu Garcia 6500 reel. For the Springs we use triple hooks and buy the mesh bags cuz roe is legal there. The water is crystal clear in Kitimat. No numbers game but really just timing
Fenwicks 1264 one of my favourites. What size/make of hooks? Make of line? Different lines show up differently, ..if its crystal clear then all those things i talked about earlier mean alot. What pound test? Leader? Nice levelwind easy control..try a silex?
maxima supersoft ultra green is great line
You nailed the line thing right on Rats. Berkley Trilene XL green fishing line works great, 275 yards for about 10 bucks at your local Canadian Tire store When fishing for steelhead I have a 10lb test, but the Springs require 40lbs test. I have heard but not tried this line but its a Fluorocarbon line and they say it's virtually invisible underwater it's called Vanish Transition by Berkley
Not saying anything bad about a Silex reel but I am just to comfortable with mine and will not change
