RUFF RIDER Sodus Live Report Aug 23 - Sep 2

Recommended Posts

I know some folks will think this is crazy but back in the early eighties this same thing was happening (the "short hits" nobody home) and I experimented and found that it was the salmon hitting the dodger itself (saw the teeth marks on tape) so I rigged one up with a hook on it (still have it in one of my boxes) and caught a chinook on it....only one I caught that way but it proved the suspicion.

Tighten your releases way tight and see if that helps. Do the same on your divers.

I started this trip out doing that... maybe a bit much on the one diver, thought the pole was going to break haha. Every boat is complaining about dropped fish. I think it's just one of those days.
