Good luck tomorrow! I went out to Zone 8-2 in Puget Sound (Everett) today. Didn’t get a single bite, were fishing for Kings. We limited on Dungeoness though. Just filled my belly with a crab boil I carried my FK2.Stay tuned. We will be leaving out of Oregon Inlet, NC tomorrow morning early. Going out with Captain West on the West Wind. Spending the day out in the Gulf Stream... For Mahi, Tuna and maybe Marlin. I will try to get some pics posted Tuesday. We are excited. I need a CPK fillet knife in AEBL to test out.. Nathan, I have some ideas...
I've used it. It's a good bait as far as manufactured baits go. Generally if I'm targeting trophy sized cats I'm using live or cut bait. Whatever is in the body of water I'm fishing. Around me bluegill and shad are the top two. If I going for flathead I'll use live bullheads. Another good bait is chicken liver. But instead of using it fresh, where it's a pain to keep it in the hook, pack it in salt in an old coffee can. After a week, it will have cured, and you'll have to cut it off the hook. Beef spleen works awesome, but it can be difficult to find.
Another trick to add to your setup, is tie a heavy weight on your line with plenty of line below it. Tie on your hook, and then tie on a good sized bobber at the very end. The weight will sink to the bottom, and the bobber will then pull your hook and bait off the bottom to whatever the distance is between your weight and where you tied on your hook.
