    Not seeing any response to your question so, I thought I'd toss this link in your direction.http://www.dec.ny.gov/doc...e_pdf/pfroakorchrv.pdf  I have no idea if it has the answers your looking for but, it may be a starting point.
     
    Good luck.

    This drives me insane. Classic tightliner setup. Big red octopus 1/0 with a half ounce of lead below it. Love when I point out that this is nothing but a snaggr rig and the user looks at us like wer the ones in the wrong.
