I run flashers and flies or meat on coppers. Treat them as big fish rigs or you will kill tons of small fish.

Pick a starting point.... say meat and if you cant generate some strikes after a couple of color changes, by all means, go to a spoon or Fly n flasher.  What gives you confidence is the best thing to run, just don't run it all day with no strikes that stubbornness.

Interesting Gambler! Do you think you are more apt to catch the smaller Kings on a spoon, than you will on a flasher/fly, or meat rig? I assume this is what you are saying. And I assume the reason it will result in killing the small ones is because of the long fight, or dragging them without knowing. Is this correct? Thanks.

I find more often skippies and small kings will hit a spoon over a flasher and fly.  I don't want to injure fish of the future and I don't want to waste time reeling in small fish on long coppers.  I have dragged small fish around on coppers and found dead fish on the end of the line after a hour.
