Ok, so it's winter and I still have 5 months to go....
But to keep us occupied, I thought I would pose a few questions I have about backtrolling for kings. I have had excellent results backtrolling kwiks, but terrible luck with glo/egg setups.
My first question is about setup when trying to backtroll eggs with a diver. What length/type leader seems to be the best, size diver, size glo?
Next question regards rod placement and how far back to run behind the boat. So most of the time if I have 4 people fishing I try to run two kwiks and two egg/glo setups. My goto amount of line while running the kwiks has been 7 passes of the level wind. This seems to work, and like I said...Iv'e had pretty good results. So the big question is, when running kwiks and glos where do you place the rods with the eggs? For example...do you run them straight out the back and put the kwiks out to the sides or vice versa?
And lastly....what's the best setup to reduce line tangles? Should the inside rods that go straight back be closer to the boat, or should the outside rods be closer? Or should they all be the same distance? Iv'e tried different scenarios and haven't found the best setup yet....I keep getting tangles!
