I decided to save some cash and start making my own shanks for handlining. Maybe Alex V. can give me some pointers. What length, size of clevises, crimps, positions of clevises, best crimp pliers? I hate bugging the guys at Lakeside with all the questions. Help is greatly appreciated, Ed K.

I have pics of the cooks shanks set up from their hand lining seminar. I'll post them when I get home, I'm hunting up north now and don't have my computer with the pics on them with me.

Here is a different version than what is typically sold, I learned from some long time handliners on the Detroit River. I found after making/using these I typically did not get any line twist. Or a lot less than clevis's. Depending on how you prefer to handline, you can make shanks that only have the 3 locations you use every time out, or like when I started, I placed the barrel swivels at 5 to 6 and/or 10 inch intervals so I could adjust my leaders height as required depend on if I was running 5/20/40 or 5/15/30 leaders. Just another option.
