I like a a tackle system. I makes tackle shopping more efficient, and cheaper!

However, I don't have a system for buying components to build Colorado spiners. Not sure what size split ring and barrel swivels to match with certain size blades. My preferred overall blade is a size 4 French blade, however I'm not sure what size components are big enough to do the job but not too big to overpower the blade.

Do you have a system for blade, ring and swivel sizes?

I have had a blast sock fishing over the last 2 weeks and have met a few great guys out on the river.

Crappie are pretty rare around here.  Pretty much only found in a couple lakes around here.

There used to be a large number in Mill Lake until the Pike started feasting on them. I guess that's a plus on one sense.

Ya I know, I have 2 other bait casters1 for my lake fishing, one for coho and they work amazing but there both Abu's this is Delta and I dont know if its the line or what, but it sucks at casting and everything is set perfect. I put a 1 oz weight on the line in the park for practise for this one too and it wouldn't go further then 10-15 feet

My baitcaster wont cast anything with 2 oz and below. I put a 6oz just to see how far it would go and I was only getting around 40-50 feet. Has 50LB braided line..

That doesnt sound right at all. 50 ft max distance and you need 6oz? and you cant cast 2oz? Are you sure your cast control etc is set right?

Lighter line should increase casting distance but it sounds like something else is wrong ...

Looked at a 300D at Pacific Angler and it felt good in my hands. Probably will go with the 300 but still want to hold a 200D for comparison.

Lead was banned from Shotgun shells years ago and maybe it makes sense to do the same for weights?

Not really.  There is lots of lead in shotgun shells. You just aren't permitted to use lead shot in shotgun shells when hunting migratory waterfowl because the lead shot settles in shallow bodies of water and is ingested by feeding waterfowl. In most cases you can use lead shot for upland game birds.

As typhoon said, lead in the Fraser isn't a huge risk as waterfowl aren't likely to ingest a 3 oz betty from the bottom of a large, swiftly moving, river.
