How to use a
Kwikfish to catch the big Chinook
By Erik Brigham of Erik's World Class Fishing
Kwikfish can be fished with out weight if the hole
isn't to deep 8ft or less. When fishing deeper holes
back bouncing and divers can added to create more
depth from the lure.
Salmon hit this rig with a vicious strike in fast
current. In slower pools and tide areas the bite can
be slow and steady. A sardine fillet is wrapped on
the underside of the Kwikfish. Sardines are use
because of their high oil content. Scent pads can
also be stuck to the underside of the Kwik fish and
saturated with sardine oil.. Your fillet should be
changed often, at least every hour or so. The
sardine rap is not mandatory for this set up, but
can really make the difference from a slow day to
Kwikfish come rigged with two triple hooks. The
center hook should be remove and replaced with a
bead chain swivel between hook and plug hook eye.
This will help prevent hook pull outs when the
Salmon rolls up in the line twists causing the back
hook to work against the front hook. Also replace
the triple hooks with large sized quality hooks that
are sticky sharp.
To fish this set up moving
through a hole
Position boat on current seam
Boat needs to go slower than the
Drop sinker to bottom
Lift sinker up as you drift down
Drop sinker again to bottom
Repeat until you run out of
fishing hole or FISH ON!!!!!!
You can also Plunk this rig from a
boat if you know the slot where the salmon must
travel to go upstream.
Make sure you increase your dropper line on the
sinker when plunking to 4 -5 ft.
Anchor boat upstream from slot where fish travel.
Let lines out.
Just sit and wait for the tide to bring in a fresh
run of fish.

Steelhead Tip by Kurt Ruden
Old school tap tap tap v.s. slinkie
slide tap slide. If your old school and like the
lead feel but hate the hang ups, and hate putting
those shots in the cord. TIP take 2-3 feet of cord
slide over a smoothed out end unrolled and
straighten (best you can) traditional lead
core, take DULL BUT GOOD LEAD CUTTER, cut 2-3 inch
chunks off thru cord, make sure to crunch a little
extra cord for melting seal. Seal both sides cut
small shot like sizes for slinkie cut into bigger
chunks for a more tradional tap tap feel when
drifting rivers for steelhead with at least 1/4 of
normal rubber lead combo without losing too much
feel .... MY 2 CENTS
