Mark;

The Rochester Gander Mountain has no FAMILIAR BITE, must be herring. They aren't currently interested in frozen bait since the bait you saw sat for quite some time. Some of the Ganders are starting to order FAMILIAR BITE but it's the managers call.

Here's a shop out of Rochester that came recommended by our Pro-Staff Capt. Ken Biemiller (Off the Hook Charters)

Salmonite;

Narby's will have our RIGGED and U-RIG FAMILIAR BITE Bait Heads by tommorow afternoon. We appreciate your patience and plan to have NY stocked as fast as we are able. Soon, FAMILIAR BITE "Triple Tango" Daisy Chains will be available on our site. We will be filming an instructional HOW TO VIDEO and offer a HOW TO MANUAL for your viewing at shops selling our products or e-mail us and we will be glad to send one out in PDF.

There's not a better designed baithead to match our FAMILIAR BITE alewives than ours. This is a whole alewife trolling system that may -at first- require patience and adjustments but is certainly worth the effort for catching the "BIG ONES"

As you may know; Todd & Carrie Choate (another of our Pro-Staff) won the Summer LOC with a 31.14lb King and here's another 31lb King recently caught aboard BUC-A_ROO Charters (one of our Pro-Staff) out of the Oak . http://www.bucaroocharters.com/

I've had good luck with it as well.

Walt, one question.

what is the standard/stock leader length of the daisy chain setup? I had a bite off (must have been a knick in the leader) right in front of the head a while back. I didn't lose the 3 flies so I rerigged another setup using the flies and another chart bait head, but since then the bite on it seems to have dropped off quite a bit.

I wonder if it might be a length thing. I know with the old cut bait setups, leader length was important when targeting the big boys vs numbers of fish.

Thanks,

Tim

Mark;

Very rearly will they not hold up and NO BRINING NEEDED (Fresh is Best!) The herring I've tested all needs brining whether cut or whole and some of it disinigrates even after brining - go figure.

At first most anglers over shoot the proper curve (arc) in bait for proper roll and they spin like a top - causing them to explode - like being in a blender. Your looking for a 1 to 2 cadence per second or a steady spiral roll. Too slow will produce a delayed rolling effect and to fast will be like a tail spin, just right gives a continual smooth spiral. Sounds like you got them rolling right, I'm really happy to hear your satified. We were out yesterday and let me say BIG Steelhead LOVE them too! I see several guys have an interest in our "Triple Tango" (Daisy Chains) and Narby's will have them by wednesday, if you care to check them out. See reply to FishStix for Daisy Chain tie measurements if you wish to tie your own..

Attached HOW TO RIG; poor picture quality but if you click again on the full sized image (after opening) it clears even more.

Again thanks for your patience as we slowly release product. We should be locked and loaded for your FALL LOC DERBY!

Each years harvest cycles different size baits. The Red labels are (5" to 6") and the Green Label (6" to 7"). Good News is, this years harvest has produced large - thick bodied Red Labels (averaging 6") and thick, Yummy!

New York (Lake Ontario) Tackle shops and some of the Gander Mountains will be getting this years harvest shipments starting this week 8/5/08, along with our rigged FAMILIAR BITE baitheads. I've created a dealer list for NY Lake Ontario Anglers (scroll down):

Another tip on the whole herring rig. I twist on a small piece of monel wire onto the eye of the treble. After inserting the treble, I wrap the wire around the body of the bait then continuing around the shank of the treble and end it with a twist onto itself. The idea is to keep the treble from slipping out, and maintain the proper angle of the hook.
