I read that was illegal here, so I went with the sponge method.young gun said:I've got a video i recorded of sport fishing BC where mark back trolls the kitimat. They used herring strips wrapped around the kwickfish.
Instead of the sponge, you can also use adhesive backed velcro (the soft side) and stick it to the underside of the quickfish. It holds the scent and is easier to hide. There is a couple different methods you can use with quickfish. You have Backtrolling and Hover Fishing. We usually drop our quickfish and use our kicker to swing us into the hole and backtroll through the hole. With Hover fishing you use your kicker and stay in the same spot not moving down stream.Lund-lubber said:I read that was illegal here, so I went with the sponge method.young gun said:I've got a video i recorded of sport fishing BC where mark back trolls the kitimat.

The 3-way swivel with fixed leader lengths. I'm going to try the slider next, as pictured in Luhr Jensen's techsheet: http://www.luhrjensen.com/techreports/561KwikfishforChinook.pdf.skagit3 said:Were you using a 3 way swivel or a slider for your weight?
Yeah, like coralling them almost. It's funny how we always try to think where the fish will be, but in my case, they never are.Steelie Trav said:Rib and I did a little bit of back-trolling during the fishout. I used a large hot-spot with a shaker inside and rib was using a bright pink kwikfish. We used 4oz banana weights tied to a 24" leader and bounced it through a channel while anchored. The channel was about 25ft deep and only 15ft wide, seemed like a nice spot to find a spring but no luck.
I'll be trying this method probably every trip out. Good way to keep yourself busy after 7 hours of barfishing with no bites!
