Here is what I first saw that got me interested in using kwik fish lures for springs...Alterations need to be made to the hooks and you may adapt the lures to suit your specific areas...
There's a new plug made by Blue Fox, called a Foxey Fish, that has a scent holder that we tried on the Skeena for Springs. We used the Jet Diver as the water was quite a bit deeper in early July. The dropper weight will work well on the Harrison or in medium flows on the Fraser but is it necessary to use a dropper line? Can't you just snap swivel on your weight (type of sinker will depend on whether or not you're back trolling or anchored) onto the swivel?with anchovy or herring oil applied
This is done mostly on the Skeena and in the States lots and I always wonder why not so much on the Fraser. I don't see why back trolling would not work on the Fraser if you have an oarsmen or someone controlling the speed of the boat with a motor, preferably electric. Of course you would need lots of juice/ batteries for a 4 hour trip. I guess it depends on the location.do you back troll it
both would work depending on the location and flow. For example, on the Harrison there is a bit of current to get the right action on the lure so you can basically anchor up and let your setup "sit there" as you say which is like bar fishing, only from an anchored boat.let it sit there??.or can i bar fish with it??
