[20:20:20] SDWA: Is the larger gas tank it's only advantage, or is bigger better, what about weight?

[20:20:49] sleeper: sorry woody, dont know how

[20:23:23] *** Jim(Alberta) has joined Walleye Central

[20:23:30] *** steelchaser has left Walleye Central

[20:23:48] clay(wy): That lets you mark the fish before they have a chance to spook and you can cover alot of water?

[20:24:30] Walleyed Mike: Dale, when rigging do you use a plain hook most of the time, and do you use floater rigs?

[20:24:31] *** Ranger Man has left Walleye Central

[20:24:47] HPS: DD were you happy with your pinpoint in the manual mode??

[20:24:51] clay(wy): bye ripper

[20:26:26] DD: Hook sizes 6, 4, and 2 depending on bait

[20:26:40] rabbit(wi): DD, do you find it makes a difference, to use a colored hook when live bait rigging?

[20:26:54] *** bob (oh) has left Walleye Central

[20:27:15] DD: Talk to locals based on time of yr. for locations

[20:27:25] *** Dennis has joined Walleye Central

[20:30:25] sleeper: how do i get your email address ?

[20:30:45] sleeper: sounds great we talk about that all the time

[20:30:50] fishncrazy: DD when you run bottom bouncers and spinners in 12 feet and less do you long line or go to a heavier bouncer and

fish close to the boat?

[20:31:16] *** Jim(Alberta) has left Walleye Central

[20:31:27] *** blane (wa) has joined Walleye Central

[20:31:29] DD: Mike, Yes works better because both are compatable

[20:31:29] *** Jim(Alberta) has joined Walleye Central

[20:31:48] rabbit(wi): DD, when live bait rigging, do you use floating beads, or standard beads, or none at all?

[20:32:20] DD: To avoid spooking fisk use lighter weight & fish farther from boat

[20:32:32] fishncrazy: thanks

[20:32:51] Walleyed Mike: Dale, what is your favorite way to troll cranks deep off a planer, snaps or leadcore?

[20:32:55] DD: Live rigging use both at times

[20:34:57] DD: the PinPoint motor & sonar are made to work as a unit

[20:35:17] *** sampson has joined Walleye Central

[20:35:22] fishncrazy: DD when using a natural presentation with a LBR do you fell more confident with just a hook or do you use a bead

infront for a little added attraction?

[20:35:39] *** sleeper has left Walleye Central

[20:35:56] DD: Yes bottom bouncers will stay below the boat & be more vertical

[20:36:06] *** Jim(Alberta) has left Walleye Central

[20:54:54] *** Woody(MI) has left Walleye Central
