Hey whats up cuf, so iv been out to sc twice
This year and iv limited each day within 3.5hrs!
I dont have downriggers so I troll with engine on
Set up is as follows:
Weight release w/ 2-2.5lb ball weight then about a 2.5 ft leader attached to a large 12''n flasher
Clear, green w/ plaid design. Then2-3ft leader using different lures. Go with a 4.5in kettlefish/squid hoochie white in color or glow.
U can also hook an anchovy behind the hoochie. Remember only circle hooks and barbless
Or an FBR, ROTARY KILLER, SPOONS will work.

Ill be fishing monday out of sc. If u dont mind let me know how u do saturday...big k

Just an FYI for you guys, you don't have to run circle hooks while on the troll, they just have to be barbless.

Might want to pick up a regulations book before heading out.

You don't really NEED a flasher or Dodger, but if you choose one remember the bigger they are, the more water resistance/ interference to a hooked fish! Every time a hooked fish changes directions, that big surfboard causes the hook to turn and increases and decreases tension on the hook. salmon have soft mouths, and combined with barbless hooks, this can be an issue. With a bait holder rig like a rotary salmon killer, I prefer a small flasher or dodger, say in the 6" range, while if I'm trolling a Hoochie, I will use a big flasher. Rarely does flasher color matter, silver or chrome works as well as anything else.

Question is: are Pro-Troll EChip SpinRay Flashers compatible with RSK or FBR?
All of them are rotating while the trolling. Is direction of rotation the same? Could that rotations cause a tangling? How Pro-Troll ECip SpinRay Flashers necessary if RSK or FBR are rotating also and also have own EChips? May be it is too cheesy?
Thank you

ING, more gear, more water resistance! Start off simpler, with less junk on your line! Got binoculars and no fog? Watch what other boats are doing and catching! If the guys who are catching are using a bunch of cheesy junk on there lines, do the same!
