  1. I've only ever used a scent once and that was because a customer insisted it would catch more fish. I picked out two good identical lures, put the scent on one and the other clean and put them down to the same depth. After the first three fish on the clean lure the customer threw his scent over the side.
  2. I can't complain the top dog in my box has been a 5.5 Apex either Rocket or Popcorn running five feet above and behind my two Agitators running in tandem off the ball. This system has even beat out a flasher & meat!
  3. Glow spoons are great but what you have to remember is they only stay charged for a short time whereas UV spoons remain charged throughout the day even when it's somewhat cloudy and that's down much lower than any depth I'll ever be fishing!
  4. Chas it's not a matter of being a "Woos" what it comes down to is when you're younger you don't use your brain as much as you do when you get older and your muscles don't matter as much.
  5. I have four Scotty electrics. I've used both electrics & manuals but other than the speed & ease of the electrics the one great thing about them if you're fishing alone it's easier to get the cable and balls out of the way when bringing in a fish!
  6. As for reels if I never had to use a level wind again I'd be happy. I've got four Islander mooching reels for my riggers. Pretty well all the boys out west use those reels and since I started using them I'd never want to go back to level winds. As for riggers I've used a number of makes over the years and I wouldn't change my Scotty's. As for me they're the top of the line!
  7. All a black box is designed to do is prevent the wrong charge going down the riggers. Before you spend your money go on the Scotty website and it will give you direction on how to check the charge on your rigger. Scotty were the originators of the Black Box. It is not designed to attract fish but to prevent the wrong charge that will spook the fish.
  8. I bought two of them years ago. Used one & it drove me crazy. The rod kept coming up as if we had a hit. If anyone wants one I'll direct them to the dump!
  9. As said before fish that are getting ready to stage aren't feeding they're just aggressive! Had the same thing happen to me & when I checked the meat rig I could see all the teeth marks were on the side not near the hook. That's fishing!
  10. I've been running Apex on Lake O for 40 years. They were the first salmon lure I ever bought and to this day the most consistent lure I have in the box. Having run a charter for over 30 years I've had just about every color & make of lure on the market. For Lake O my top colors have been watermelon, Rocket, Popcorn, Chartreuse Haze UV and Glow Jelly UV. I run both 4.5 & 5.5 sizes. As for Pro Troll, they're just a knock off of the Apex. They used to be the US distributor for Hot Spot.
  11. I've been running two Hot Spot Agitators in tandem off the ball for the last three or four seasons then running an Apex or spoon 5ft above and behind the last Agitator. That's been my top producer since I started using it.
  12. I've always used 11" Hot Spot flashers with meat. My top colors have been Bullfrog, Weasel and White Lightning. As for fly I use the 8" Hot Spot. First thing in the morning either Bullfrog or Weasel once it's sunny switch over to the Green Haze UV
  13. Ha! that's a good one! Hey guys the only reason I put that in I don't want to tick anyone off thinking he only talks about those products just to promote them. If I didn't believe in them I wouldn't mention them!
  14. Being prostaff for Hot Spot the spoon I run regularly is the Hot Spot Apex. I normally run the 5.5 or the 4.5 and I can run them at pretty well any speed. Since they're plastic obviously they're light. The only size of Apex that has a problem with speed is the size 4 which shouldn't be run any faster than 2.5 mph because of the shape of the mouth of the spoon.
  15. I've had my Scotty's for over 20 years and never had a problem and I was running charters for most of that time. Still using all four of them.
