Hello Italo, haven\’t send you a message in a while, but glad to see you still helping fishermen every where how to catch fish and you are always the best at it. I searched the web a few days ago and a fellow wrote something about flat lining and lead core. I thinking it has something to do with trolling techniques, but not quite sure since he did not specify. Anyway, can you tell me what they are and what they entail? Thanks a lot Italo, have a Merry Christmas.

Hi Nay…Thank you for your kind words. Many anglers who need to get lures deeper without the use of downriggers or diving devices such as Luhr Jensen Dipsey Divers or Jet Planers use either stainless-steel or lead-core line. For example if you let 10-yards of lead-core ine out, the ine wil sink about 5 ft. Lead-core line come color coded so that anglers can roughly know how much line to let out to get their lures down to a particular depth(every ten-yards is a different color). Today, many flat-line anglers will use a “counter” baitcasting reel to help them in knowing how much line to let out. Counter reels work well with lead-core line. Rapala also makes in-expensive line counters that clamp-on any rod and can be used with any reel. Merry Christmas and hope you have a great New Year…God bless you, Italo
