    I have a 18ft starcraft for my tender boat. I will mostly be hunting Lake Erie what color should I paint the boat?

    #2 Where and what kind of rope do you guys buy for your Longline set ups.
    Thanks,
    Jim

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Hey there Ducksdemise,</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">I can give more information on color and rigging.&nbsp; I have line that is much more durable than "tarred nylon."&nbsp; I have the same boat as you, used as a working boat and have many suggestions, too many to type here.&nbsp; I could also offer you some other options for decoy rigging and other stuff that pertains to Lake Erie gunning.</P>

    <P>anchor / mother line info: there is a vendor who does both pte mouilee and crane creek waterfowl shows who will have (arguably) the largest tents at either show. this guy brings hundreds of spools of all diameters&nbsp;of lines, ropes, braids, twists, tarred, dyed, colored, clips, clamps, tricks and weights and sells at some descent bulk pricing. if you like to handle the stuff before you buy, that might be the guy to try. trot line line clips are better bought at atagulf</P>
