Thinking about trying some MC Rocket bait strips. Anyone have any luck with them? If so what colors would be good to start with I fish the east end of the lake. Thanks Larry

Love them. I use the white one the most. Have caught some big fish on them including the boat record at just short of 30 pounds. This spring it was my top producer for my trip to the Bar.

They are deadly and Mike is a great guy to deal with.  If I can remember off the top of my head #1,24, crazyfish, silver pearl in regular and mag will get you started.

do you put  scent  on them  like soak them in a bag or just run them out of the package  with a little bend to them ?

I run them unscented, slight bend and 60" behind an 11" paddle

I add scent 50% of the time. Place the scent between the strip and the bait head. Just a few drops.

I run them plain, but Mike gave me a tip on the #1.  Take a black maker and color the top of the spine. The contrast sometimes makes a difference.  But be aware that the color will bleed through the rocket over time and you will have a very different looking bait as time goes on.

I have run them scented usually in the clear brine with anchovies and non-scented out of the package both have worked behind an 11" paddle 60" lead. The bend will depend on what speed you are trolling and the head they are in. Some heads are pre-bent, I just follow the bend in this case, in the other heads I adjust the bend to my needs and watch it in the water - less bend fast speed more bend slow speed.

They work. Not all the time, just like all the other bait choices.

But they work, my biggest on an MC rocket is a 26 lb king.

 

I like using silver with black dots, and light green with black dots.

I always use ones with glow.  I have caught on purple with glow as well.

 

Work well behind an 11 inch paddle - all silver.

Do you guys just attach the Twinkie rig with the head right to the paddle or tie an additional leader length? It seemed short when I ran it last.

I don't run twinkies, just a straight leader, per conversations with Mike.

I got the ITO rigs and came with a snap on the leader. I'll have to measure the length.
