As I mentioned in another post Tim (Yukon_Cowboy) and I went down to Montrose harbor this morning to meet Capt Bill for for info on power lining. Due to Car problems Capt Bill was no able to make it down. We did however meet a very nice man named John from Des plaines who was willing to show us his set up and explain how every thing worked. Here are a few photos that I took to show his set up.

I would like to thank John for showing us the ropes today and look forward to him joining the Chitown Angler site.

Thanks Bill, John was very good at explaining everything to us. We did throw lures for a couple of hours with no results.

WOW! I have never seen a contraption like that. You have gotten me inspired to make something similar. Where did you learn about how to make it? Is there a resource you would recommend me to check out in order to learn how to make one? Thanks!

interesting. I've never heard of powerlining before, at the risk of starting an argument, is this type of fishing "looked down upon" by most fishermen, or is it just another tool in the bag? granted i've never done it, but it seems that it would remove some of the sport out of fishing? (and how do you fight a fish with no pole, just use heavy test line?)

to the powerliners here: please dont take offense, I'm just a newbie trying to learn, apologies if i come across as judgmental, not meant that way at all.
