I'm taking my son up to Granby on Sunday. I am going to be trolling with
leadcore. Can anyone tell me what kind of spoons to troll with. I will probably be trolling in Arapahoe Bay and off Rocky Pt. Thanks!
We went up last sunday and caught 11 from noon to about 2:45. Trolling leadcore, 6 1/2 colors with about a 15' mono leader trailing needlefish #3 in rainbow. They were biting soft and missed quite a few hits too. I changed my single hooks over to trebles just to hang on to them.
I'm going to try to be up there also on Sunday. Like Jay mentioned in a recent Granby report, Downriggers or leadcore is not the only way to get down to Lakers. 6 and 1/2 colors is supposed to equate to 30 - 35 feet down with about 200 feet of line out, while a 4 oz weight will take superline down about 40 feet with 100 feet of line out.
I like big spoons, thin flutter type. I just posted a list on another tread. They work.
I say what Terre says on spoon selection. If your having a hard time finding the spoons she listed, just buy some BIG krokadile spoons. They aren't my favorite but you can get them locally and they will work.
I internet order all my spoons at the beginning of the season so I'm not sure what's available locally.
