I'm thinking of drifting a single Jensen egg with some wool, targeting Coho. How successful is that method for the Vedder? Also, what type of water is best suited for that type of presentation? Would you say that it is better, worse or just different for catching Coho than say a spoon or colorado blade? It was suggested to me that when using a Jensen egg you should target more rapid waters. Is that the case? One final question if I may, where should I place the egg; on the shank closer to the wool or at the bottom of the hook?

Thanks for any replies all and good luck out there! :)

Quite frankly, Ja, it doesn't matter much........A size 3 or 4 hook with a single Jensen egg and some wool is very effective under a float...But with that said and to answer your question about blades, and other stuff...Become a "quick change artist" and set up your gear so you can switch from the egg setup to a blade and back again really quickly...Work the water well. I usually run the bait first, then flutter a colorado or eqivalent thru the pocket water, then use a spoon for the deep stuff.
Also, IMHO the largest fish you will catch will likely be on spoons/blades vs. bait.

Try using scent on your wool as well, I give it a shot of anchovie juice or sandshrimp scent, this combined with a jensen egg can be deadly. Works well too in low clear water where you want a small presentation.

fish different from everyone else, if they are chucking guts, jensens or wool, throw on a blade/spoon, jig or shrimp, the different scent will attract fish.

i like fishing hardware fish because all the agressive fish will take, then there are plenty more that are willing to take a good natural bait.

I use a small piece of wool, usually peach colored and that's it. If I get desperate, I'll go to blades, roe or a spinner. I don't think there is any hard and fast rule other than you want a delicate presentation in low, clear water and more attractive stuff in deeper, off colored water.
