One of our topics that came up for discussion last night at our Tying/Building Night in Nanaimo, was setting up a single hand rod from a boat or kayak to get down fast to target Lingcod and other deeper saltwater species. Anyone have any experience with this.
Has anyone had luck with with a sinking line and a section of T material. I would be guess it would be rough to cast and it could potentially break a rod it too overloaded while casting.
I was looking at both Airflo's and Rio sites and the it looks like Airflo has the best lines designed to get down deep. I like the look of the depthfinder or the Sniper lines.
Airflow use to make a kaboom line it was 30 feet long but sank like a rock i use to add to my sink 7 when I fished for splake in Saskatchewan now I use snowbee count down 7 which has 50 foot head and 70 feet running line it's ok but not what u need I got a friend set up years ago with leadcore line and ran it on his fly reel with loops and it was colour coated he could troll +20 feet with it just some ideas for u

I was thinking of using a shooting line with intermediate sink and then adding sections of T material for the depth i'm hoping to fish. My thought is that it would give me some versatility to fish T-20 when i'm targeting 30'+ deep and something lighter when i'm fishing surface feeders (and everthing in between). It could allow me to change lines easily while on the water as well as well as keep them within the grain window of my rod. Thoughts and comments?
