Rapala Linecounter help?

2 posts in this topic

Hello, I had previously posted this on the walleye board, which I realized is prob. the wrong forum:

I'm going to be doing some trolling of cranks, but my Daiwa is the model without the accudepth linecounter. I found a couple Rapala lighted linecounters on Ebay cheap, but they didn't come with any directions. Has anyone used these things? How do I rig the line, and how does the line release work? Is the tension knob for the line release?

Sorry if I'm being dense, but any help would be much appreciated! Here's what they look like:

Pretty simple setup. Attach them to the rod insert the line into the line counter by switching the off switch to on with the line inserted let the line out and start fishing. The line tension is for various line diameters. I have found that when fighting a fish or after a strike the line will pop out of the counter by itself so you can fight the fish unencumbered. Hope this helps!

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
