rip, for the leader pinch off 6"-8" lead, pull it out of the sheething, put the mono inside the sheething from the end and tie a couple simple granny knots 1-2" apart. I dont know what you call this knot.

btw, do you have the words rippin lips on the stern of your boat? may have crossed paths at big C...

I pinch off the lead and then use either blood knots or uni-knots to tie them together. Mono looses lots of strength if you don't get a good knot on there.

no words on the back of my boat yet going to put "ship faced" on the back soon though. I do fish Big C allot though. I found out that this knot is caled the carot knot thanks for the help.

I use Guderod leadcore and it has the knot I use on the package, It is a Albright Special. I tie this to a barrel swivel and use Fireline as a leader, usually about eight to 10 feet.

I second the albright knot, slips through the guides the best and is very strong as well.

I also believe that the albright is the way to go on this one.

I pull about 5 inches of lead out the tie to a tiny barrel swivel.

You have a fourth vote for the Albright. Never had one slip or break. I have left plenty of Balsa and Plastic on the bottom of many lakes or in the trees of the Missouri River Water though. frown.gif

Let me think?...Probably enough for a new kicker or that Lowrance I've been wanting to buy. crazy.gif

Albright is great, no messing with stripping back lead etc... Caugth several fish on lead over 15 lbs w/o an issue. The only other knot I like with lead is the Carot knot. Blood knots are only a 65% strength knot if I remember correctly.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
