That must have been a bunch of fun pulling that fish in! Nice job on the early springer!

Were you using a sideplaner? I'm interested in knowing how you rigged the kwikfish assuming that you were on the bank that is....

I'm needing to pick up some k-14's. If I was to get 2 or 3, what colors would you suggest?
Thanks, Ed

I really like the green-chrome-yellow tigerstriped with the touch of orange under the first hook... I can go out and look and get the actual name of that model. But I have come to rely very much on the chrome and green combo for any king salmon Im chasing. The fish today was just dumb luck.... even a blind squirrel, occasionally finds a nut!:rolleyes:

fickle pickle
the grinch


There are the color names of 3 proven nook killers.. good place to start.
