Suggestions for set up


Recommended Posts

White Moose Lake - Atlantic Salmon

Bait
Small Minnows or Large Minnows (they also like Shiners too).

Setup
I used a Feeder Rod setup when I was there and using bait;
Big Alli 450 Rod
Hornet Swarm 4000 Reel
Hook Size #6/0

Note
My best results were with a Casting Rod setup using a Crankbait 3.5m, #2/0 or a Narrow Spoon 21g, #3/0

Now I’m using (rod big Ali 450 ,reel hornet swarm 4000,braid 0,22,hook 6 and large minnows ,and there is a problem.the rod big allí 450 has no lure option.

The Big Alli is a feeder rod, which requires bait, and in Alberta, spawn sack works for the lake trout and Atlantic salmon.  Your rod however is too light for the trophy fish.

Try a Brutus (float) or Heavy Chaser (bottom)

Good catch Tonto. I meant 100g Feeder Cage, not lures. That should give an optimal cast on the Big Alli.

Thanks Tonto.i was thinking of buying Brutus rod 300 can you suggest a complete set up with is rod.

You need to put a similar weight Reel on the Match Rod.
Match Rods use Spin Reels.

Brutus 300
Line Weight Max - 16Kg

ThunderSpin 4500
Max Drag - 16Kg

Fluoro Line 0.55
Test Weight - 15.8Kg

I'll let you figure out the bobber and baits. ;)

 What Spug says above is fine.   Later you will swap the reel for an ExcelSpinner 5000.

 

btw, there aren’t many Greeks in this game.   I am currently in Athens, and scheduled to return to The US when flights open again.

 

cheers
