sounds pretty good... i have singles, tandems, umbrellas, i drag spreader bar teasers to draw attention to the surface on calm days, i drag spoons, rapalas and my favorite is a daisy chain!! my favorite spread is the one they are biting on!! you smack one in the face they bite like a cat with a feather on a string brother, good luck

Looks good except in my experience it helps to have a heavier lure closest to the board, the additional weight and drag makes it pull out much easier than a lighter lure combo.

Obviously a busy spread and I assume you have the boards out a fair distance. As the clips/bands pop the spread will change as you re-set lines. So on busy days the board spread changes quickly.

The first time you set it you might try a few tight turns to see how it handles those as far as fowling lines. Nothing worse than spending time untangling instead of fishing. Opening days there will be many tight quarter turns and a spread that can handle coarse changes is less of a headache. Many like a spoon/chute down the middle WWB on less congested days.

Good luck and let us know how it works out.

Instead of 6oz chutes behind the umbrellas put a 2 oz chute on the outside position on opposite arms. You might also change out the umbrella with 10 oz out 120 to a 6 oz back 180. That has been a good producer for me.

I just wonder why you limit yourself to non-tandems on the starboard side. I pretty much run ALL tandems except an umbrella or 2.

Watch the weather and wind. Nothing like a flipped planner board with 6 lines attached. ASK ME HOW I KNOW?doh:eek2::hysterical:
