    Did you wrap the wire around the hook eye? We know those blades work great!

    I used small crimps, the wire is just soft single strand wire. The blades rock but I couldn't keep them from cutting the line.

    When you catch as many fish as nofish and I do, it's all about ease of release. hahaha. At Flaming Gorge, trailing hooks only last about one or two fish anyways before they get broke off.

    That's a little confusing to myself. One or two fish on trailing hooks before they break off (hooks). We all fish different as long as the main results are fish in the box. I fish tube flys with 12# flor Pline never had a trailing hook break yet. Good luck tight lined.

    I think it has to do with the size of the fish at the Gorge. I run10 too 15 pound leader and the back hook just won't last. I upsize the hook and don't miss many fish.

    I wish I had that problem. I use 12# Pline flor on my leader 8 to 10 inches on a wobbler. Spinner 24 inches. Large hooks 4 . We had one lake up here Wickiup that had extremely large kokes.17 to 21 inch some bigger some smaller. Mike Hall from up your way hit it on the head. I pick up in one of his video. There jaws are under developed and soft. The hooks were pulling out not coming unhooked. I use custom rods 5 weight fly rod blanks made by wraptor rods. I added a snubber. Then I heard oh I use this rod or this rod. Running 85 to 110 ft back was loosing too many fsh. I added the snubber was like I added super glue. That me. The fish are ripping off. Them larger fish made for a different challenge. One guy at Odell came up with he called a mysis shrimp it is micro in size . A small O or OO size blade in front some Glow beads. It was a killer. So slot of us reatandlly down sized are baits. ( Kokanee Kid). I fully under stand every lake fishes different.

    Default Shrimp

    I was thinking about using some pieces of shrimp instead of corn with scent. Anybody tried that? Did it work? Shrimp and krill scent from Pro-cure seems to work well, so I am thinking I might try actual pieces of shrimp. Thoughts?

    We used to catch Kokes at the Gorge with little pieces of sponge soaked in scent. Truth be told, I donít think that Kokes are all that bright. Shrimp would surely work but an expensive way to deliver the Pro Cure scent.

    Default Shrimp

    I was thinking about a bag of frozen shrimp and just putting on a small piece. It might stay on better than corn and maybe even get more than one fish.

    I think shrimp is as good of a possibility as any. I would opt to purchase the can shrimp since its sealed within its own juices and smaller pieces. There would be enough there to create a couple of recipes to try using dyes and some different flavors of pro-cure. Since Utah now has legalized the use of corn thru out the states waters I now have a couple of recipes that has work catching kokes. I'm willing to give the shrimp a try too.
