View Full Version : Flat fish w/ filet tied on

Any body out there,

Try the flat fish with a filet of herring tied to the bottom? Seen it on TV
when fishing for salmon, Anybody try it for trout? I'm going to give it
a try this weekend :), for cut throat, sense the ones up here go out to sea, they should be familar with the herring sent, and try that planner board with it.

I've used it for salmon during the fall run. Have not tried it for trout. The big thing is getting the filet trimed right so it doesn't unbalance the Kwickfish, it may be difficult to get it right on the smaller ones used for trout.

You might have to down size to sardines for the smaller plugs?

You are going to use smaller sizes for steelhead & trout right?
As long as you cut & trim as called for things should work out fine.

I would also "long line" for maybe better hook up ratio's. Down rigging is good, but I have found the more distance helps with the educated
"big boys".

Maybe a little "pro-cure" will give you a little edge also ?
Go to their .com and check out the scents....some good stuff there.

Good luck Ed

I think I saw the same show you are talking about. Was it salmon fishing on the Sacremento River? I think the owner of Pro-Cure scents was a guest on there too right? I bet it would work for trout if you could get the fillet small enough. Let me know how it works if you end up trying it this weekend.
