blood-run-tackle-copper-fishing-line-2One of the reasons for so many lengths of 32 and 45 pound lines is that these lines are most popular AND it is highly recommended to spool entire line on the reel, without knots or connections of any kind.

When making a trolling rig, just add a good swivel on the end of the copper line, followed with good fluorocarbon line (don't go cheep on this line!) and, of course, your favorite lure or bait.

Copper fishing line trolling depth depends on the line thickness and trolling speed, but generally, Blood Run Tackle Copper Fishing Line depths are:

- 20 pound copper line - 8 feet of depth for every 50 feet of line released at 2.5 mph (2.43m of depth for every 15.3m of line released at 4km/h or 2.2 knots),

- 32 pound copper line - 8 feet of depth for every 50 feet of line released at 2.5 mph,

- 45 pound copper line - 9 (2.75m) feet of depth for every 50 feet of line released at 2.5 mph,

- 60 pound copper line - 11 (3.35m) feet of depth for every 50 feet of line released at 2.5 mph.

These estimates are for buoyant-neutral lures, but highly depend on many things like currents, waves, lure or bait drag etc.

This copper fishing line can be used directly off the boat stern or using trolling/planer boards.

Long story short - 'copper wire trolling', experienced or not, after trying this or similar lines, you will never look at the copper lines the same way again. Sure, their test breaking strength don't mach other lines, they are not as sturdy as stainless steel wires, they are much more visible than nylon mono lines (not to mention fluorocarbon lines!), but trolling on various not-too-big fish using copper lines can be very successful.

Since this line doesn't stretch, good rod and reel are highly recommended.
