Default Re: Shooting heads??????

Bear,

I agree with Rip, I used shooting heads to fish salmon in Lake Ontario, managing the running line will be the problem. What I found was that it was such a hassle I felt foolish. I kept asking myself, why not just use a spinning rig and make the cast?

Now days with all the new running lines available maybe it is easier. I was using flat mono in 26 - 34* temps and it was always stiff. It worked (the system) but like Rip said someone new to the system may founder.
