    Thats one one thing I wish I could wrap my head around. Stripers do hit Salmon plugs (Kwikfish, Flatfish etc.), but hours per fish compared to trolling striper plugs (Rebels, Yozuris, Rattle Traps etc) is 100:1 difference. Stripers like a tight vibration and aren’t much for the slow wide wobble. They don’t like spinners much either. That used to be my theory until folks started using swim baits and glide baits. Now I’m at a loss again.

    In any event, keep trying new things. That’s one of the true enjoyments of fishing. Taking a technique from one place, tweaking it a bit and finding success in some place new. Good luck.

    Outside the Box thinking.... .gotta love it .. I'm sure it will work but you probably want to use a flasher of some kind , just scale it down ...not so dang long ... Maybe 4 /5 ft total , forget the 10 ft rig .... I've caught them on my landlocked salmon set up ... Dodger / hoochie / anchovy chunk quite a ways above Colusa , I troll spinners like they do on the Delta and catch them in water nobody thinks you can troll .. ... I have very little water to fish with a prop , I fish it a lot ...and know it well ...Once you know the water you fish (depths and snags) you can get away with techniques that work and few are willing to try ..... I try anything different than what everyone else is doing .... unless you can fish the jet water between Hamilton bridge and Red Bluff .. .early in the season Salmon fishing on the mid section of the Sac is tuff , it definitely doesn't hurt to think outside the box this time of yr , once the fish get here in numbers lots of stuff works ....
    Good fish n to ya ...

    Re: Cut plug above colusa

    I’m sure they would. My question would be, do they work better than whatever else you might use (plugs, spinners, roe etc.)? I would expect that so long as you can run them at the proper speed efficiently, they will.

    Sure wish I had the time to put in and find out. Could be the next big thing.

    Imagine the sight of guys running them in the Barge Hole or Outlet Hole. Ok, maybe that might not be a good idea, but there’s a lot of water up that way to experiment in. Good luck.

    Cut plug above colusa

    Has anyone had success using a cut plug bait without a flasher, on the sac say above colusa?
