Trolling with Deeper Divers

New Tackle
Since the robbery I have been buy ordering and organizing my fishing equipment. In getting ready for fishing for Lake and Rainbow Trout in our South Holston and Watauga Lakes. I now have four sizes of the Deeper Divers as shown below:DD1 This range of sizes will allow us to troll from 10-15 deep all the way down to 90 feet with great accuracy. Here’s how they are rigged.

This shows the way things are set up when we are trolling. We use 50 lb. braid to the diver. from the diver to the lure we use 17-20 lb. mono line.
After a hit and during the hook set, the pin is released to allow easier retrieval of the fish. DD3

We caught some nice trout last year using this technique. Some of the Lake trout we approaching 10 pounds. We hope for even larger fish this year.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
I’m not a politician, but one thing seems rotten to me is that bills before Congress have all these riders and additions to the bill that have nothing to do with the bill. All these “extras” are usually pork spending and “bribes” to get the thing passed.
What about a law that says a everything in the bill has to relate to the bill’s basic purpose with no pork!

Joke of the Day

An inmate on death row was scheduled to be put to death by firing squad the follow morning. Throughout the day, the prison guards were being very nice to him. But when they asked him if he wanted something specific for his last meal, he didn’t want anything special. When they asked if there was something special he wanted to do, he said nothing. It went on like this all day.

Finally when he was put before the firing squad, the guard asked if he wanted a cigarette and a blindfold. No, the inmate said, just get it over with. Well, is there anything that I can do for you before you go? said the guard. You didn’t even want a special last meal!

The inmate thought. Actually, he said, Music is my life. One thing I would really like would be to sing my favorite song, one whole time through, with no interruptions.

The guard nodded and told him to go ahead.

The inmate started, One billion bottles of beer on the wall…
