so here goes,
Ive heard of people using these for halibut fishing when using frozen bait, ive only heard of them and have a slight idea of what they look like, and I'm wondering if any body has used them in this application and if so how did you rig it up? thanks for your input

Grendel, The R.S.K. works great, so does the protroll With the metal clip,and 2 hooks that are snell tied, as does the F.B.R. Franko Bait Rotater. just fish them with a 3 way swivel. use a 12-24" dropper leader for your weight. 16-24 oz torpedo works best. use light line in case of snaggs 10#-15# works great. then from the 3 way. tie on about 24" of 30# then a flasher ,then the R.S.K. troll at verious speeds . I start slow. You will want to tap, tap the bottom, Not drag it. Good luck, Jay ;)

What colors have they been using? I've always done pretty good trolling the red and clear RSK's but for salmon only. Has anyone used the green and blue with any sucess?
