i'm thinking of trying to catch some spanish macs this weekend
leaving out of dymer creek
wheres the best place to go and what lures shud i use
plus, on a #1 or 2 planer, how far back shud the lure be
Conrad my man, you have to go NOWHERE!!! I was at Dymer creek this morning and caught 6 and lost 2. When you come out the creek there is the N buoy get in 27' of water and troll between that at 35'. All mackeral today were caught on gold and blues on silver. Start early trolling at first light for by 9 they will slow down, but not go away, I got 3 when i hit the deeper water around 10am. Good luck when you go.
ps #1 planer good way back. i usually count to 12.
I went with friends out of little creek sun am for spanish, my boat used #1 and 2 planers and my friends boat used in line trolling weights. They caught 3 to every one on my boat with the planers, silver crippled elwys with yellow feathered stinger hooks number 0 landed the most on both boats. We slowed down and caught blues later for flounder bait and managed a few for dinner. Nice mix and food for thought on the trolling weights. They used 3 ounces early and went to 8 oz as the sun got up around 9 or 10.
