 What kind of depth finders do you use? I use HT 1 1/4 ounce unpainted lead sounder.

I made my own outa 1/2 copper pieces about 3/4 in long. Alligator clip used for electrical and poured my own lead. They are heavy and sink fast.

Cool, has anyone heard of the fish shaped depth finders?


Yeah, my local bait guy has them most of the time.

I use old snowmobile plugs. I had a sled that used to foul a lot of plugs.
