[20:06:19] nail: indeed

[20:07:34] nail: set up and fine tuning

[20:07:39] Team Dunn (MWT): use VMC hooks, on either body baits or harnesses,

useing the 50-50 method off of the Offshore Boards(in-line)

[20:07:54] ebijack (mi): i know you don't have anything to do with where the releases

are sold, but we find it hard to locate them at local stores, so maybe you could push

bruce into getting them out more

[20:08:10] Team Dunn (MWT): Magic, what are using the Reds for that they will not


[20:08:39] Team Dunn (MWT): Ebi, thats is mostly up to the distributers

[20:08:48] BIG I 2: ya get them to more stores that would be great:}

[20:09:15] Magic Marker: heavier snap weights, and on boards in waves

[20:10:19] Team Dunn (MWT): Magic, the new releases we are designing for the

superlines will hold heavier snap-weights and boards in waves

[20:20:59] Mud Duck: spinners or cranks any preference

[20:21:11] ebijack (mi): team dunn, so you prefer to troll mostly? and do you prefer

cranks or harnesses

[20:21:12] Team Dunn (MWT): 2old2, still mastering them

[20:21:25] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, spinners

[20:21:50] Mud Duck: bouncers or snap weights

[20:21:55] nail: banana head hair jigs in a blue will always be my favorite

[20:21:58] Team Dunn (MWT): Ebi, yes we troll mostly, harnesses primarly

[20:21:25] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, spinners

[20:21:50] Mud Duck: bouncers or snap weights

[20:21:55] nail: banana head hair jigs in a blue will always be my favorite

[20:21:58] Team Dunn (MWT): Ebi, yes we troll mostly, harnesses primarly

[20:22:24] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, Offshore Snap Weights, of course :)

[20:22:49] Mud Duck: of course are their any other brands????

[20:22:49] ebijack (mi): team dunn, do you modify your cranks at all, and do you make

your own harnesses

[20:23:18] Team Dunn (MWT): Ebi, we make all are own harnesses, and we change

the hooks on the cranks, to VMC's

[20:23:32] nail: larger hooks?

[20:23:46] Drift'r: do you use colored hooks?

[20:23:49] Mud Duck: have you guys tried Lindy's new X-change bottom bouncers

[20:23:58] Team Dunn (MWT): nail, primarily the same size, the VMC offer that Sticky


[20:24:06] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, no

[20:24:07] nail: ic

[20:24:28] Team Dunn (MWT): Drift'r, some times, the bite calls for it

[20:24:55] Woody(MI): Team Dunn, what do you think of the 99 MWT schedule?

[20:24:59] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, what?

[20:25:17] Mud Duck: how long a snell do you use on you spinners

[20:25:43] Team Dunn (MWT): Woody, smaller bodies of water than we like to fish, but

thats what tournament fishing is all about, fishing new places

[20:25:53] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, 36" minimum

[20:26:03] Woody(MI): should make for an interesting year!!

[20:26:12] Mud Duck: what about blade size

[20:26:37] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, depends on the water conditions

[20:26:39] nail: ever use full once jigs with 9 inch lizards on nesting eyes

[20:26:55] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, smaller blades clearer water, bigger blades darker


[20:27:10] Mud Duck: when you say 36" our we talking 36" from snap weight

[20:27:14] Team Dunn (MWT): nail, no

[20:27:33] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, no snell on the harness is 36 inches minimum

[20:27:56] nail: they loose there minds when you drop one in on them never seen a fish

hit something so hard

[20:28:10] Mud Duck: how far from snap weight do you run the spinners

[20:28:18] Team Dunn (MWT): nail, we'll have to try it in april

[20:28:30] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, 50 feet

[20:28:54] Mud Duck: color preference on blades?

[20:29:06] nail: even in shallow water one of tommy skarlis old tricks i tought him

[20:29:09] Woody(MI): Nail, are those LIVE lizards??

[20:29:15] Woody(MI): lizards

[20:29:22] nail: no

[20:29:32] bob (oh): why do you need 1 ounce??

[20:29:32] nail: plastic

[20:29:35] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, again depends on water conditions

[20:30:08] ^2old2^ (mi): 1 oz for fast deep current

[20:30:09] nail: heavy weight rally scares the fish triggers a fantastic reaction

[20:30:36] nail: no when there nesting shallow water

[20:30:40] Mud Duck: give me some generalizations i need to learn to be a better

spinner angler

[20:31:37] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, Cracked Ice blades, Blue Blades w/ Blue beads,

Copper Blades w/ Copper beads

[20:31:48] Woody(MI): Team Dunn, what do you use for the suspended walleyes

[20:32:09] Mud Duck: is that for stained or clear water

[20:32:14] nail: spoons?

[20:32:37] Team Dunn (MWT): Woody, using the 50-50 system with in line boards

[20:32:42] Drift'r: do you always match your bead & blade color

[20:32:43] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, clear water

[20:33:17] Mud Duck: chartreuse and oranges for stained

[20:33:20] Woody(MI): what do you figure a 1/2 oz. snap weight runs at that set-up?

[20:33:35] Team Dunn (MWT): drift'r, no a blade we call Jungle Bunny, with orange

beads, green beads, yellow beads, has worked also

[20:33:48] Team Dunn (MWT): Woody, depends on your speed

[20:33:56] Woody(MI): .5

[20:34:24] bob (oh): have you tried the may fly harness during the hatch?

[20:34:25] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, generally

[20:34:59] ^2old2^ (mi): have you ever done any Hand Lining

[20:35:04] Team Dunn (MWT): bob, no, we have had some of our best bites on

Crawler Harnesses during Hatches

[20:35:07] Mud Duck: do you guys use fire line on your snap weights

[20:35:14] Team Dunn (MWT): Mud, no

[20:36:04] Team Dunn (MWT): 2gold2, (Paul) yes

[20:36:07] Mud Duck: what blade size is TOO big

[20:51:54] RUKO: thanks

[20:52:16] Team Dunn (MWT): hyde, who says that three is legal?

[20:52:57] hyderipper: when i fish the detroit river, everyone said it was legal, and

everyone was doing it

[20:53:38] ebijack (mi): it is legal , but you don't have 3 poles,

[20:56:29] ebijack (mi): tean dunn, do you prefer long rods for your trolling?

[20:57:10] Team Dunn (MWT): Ebi, we prefer a 8 foot Trolling rod

[20:57:45] FishinMagician: What type of divers do you use, if any?

[20:58:00] ^2old2^ (mi): do you ever use the superlines for jigging

[20:58:52] Team Dunn (MWT): RUKO, 6 foot 6

[20:58:57] FishinMagician: I have never heard of Slide Divers, how do they work?

[20:59:34] Team Dunn (MWT): Fishing, they slide down the line to a speed bead when

tripped, they are available at Frank's Bait and Tackle, in Linwood

[20:59:44] nail: you use a 6 6 jigging rod

[20:59:56] Just Look"N--MI: slide divers are great once you get them out.bait 50 ft

[21:01:10] Team Dunn (MWT): nail 6 foot rods, and rods 6 foot 6 inches

[21:01:31] Team Dunn (MWT): Woody, depends on how tight the situation is
