Does anyone have some definitive information on the sink rate of 35 lb test leadcore line when trolled at 3 to 3.5 knots?. Some of the references I have seen say 4 ft for every 30 feet of line out(1 color) but they don't say at what speed. I can't believe this is right since it's greater than regular wire which is 10 to 1.Any help is greatly appreciated.

This for 27 lb leadcore - @ 2.5mph and 6 colors back a 1 oz super jig will run 20 feet. (1 foot per 10 ft LC + 2 FT for 1 oz of weight). With your faster speed and slightly different test you can figure it out by trolling in 15' of water, let out line until you feel the lure bouncing bottom - then you know exact amount needed for the lures you are using and your boatspeed.

tight lines,
