website doesn't work? but it seems like it's probably simpler to just plug cut 'em. Which works. Fantastically well. Unless you don't know how to plug cut proper, and butcher the poor little headless herring...in which case...well...maybe this is the answer.

I took a look. But IDK. Why would you want a "tight" roll w/ your herring? Everyone that I've ever fished w/ or talked too about trolling for Salmon all agree...you want a slow and "wounded baitfish" look to your herring.

But, I'm open to other thoughts on this.

I have never seen anyone use them, seems like they're trying to reinvent the wheel. There are some pretty deadly techniques already available that put a lot of fish in boats.

I picked up one of these when I was in Seattle for something like 3 or 4 bucks. I was skeptical but for that little money I figured "why not?" It actually works really well for cutting your herring, and there are 2 different sets of slots for a slow roll or a tighter, faster one. Perfect cut every time. (nice if you have a couple beers in you) I saw them at Fisherman's in Jantzen Beach but the exact same one was 8 bucks there.

Yeahhhhh I have one of those yellow guide thinger things. I personally like a tight roll every now and then. Changing it up a bit sometimes does the trick. I especially appreciate that little guide after a few beers as well ;) it can save the life of your fingers!! Trust me.

Agreed. I got one years ago, around 3 or 4 bucks (at shop in Tillamook). They work quite well.

Chaging it up w/ a tight roll, is a really good idea Jeanna! Nearly everyone else will be using a wider / slow roll...and the fish get used to that. So a change up, just might get you some fish...when the other peeps don't get any hits.

The picture looks a lot like a mitre box I have for cutting wood.

Iv never used one but i saw a study on salmon where they where trolling with one of those and a camera on the line to see how many salmon where in the water in norther cali I think. and they had a lot of fish coming up to it and seeing the camera and taking off. but it was a fishing guide using it. not a bad thing to look into trying. It could be that little thing that makes the difference.

Limit Out had a buddy use one while I was down on the Rogue estuary he had 3 to my 0. I now own a dozen, works better on springers than fall fish on the OP rivers and Skagget.

ive used them and they work.. but just about anything put past a salmon works... sometimes.. I have found that nooks prefer left handed cut herring over right handed. I think way too much though is put into the cut, and not enough thought is put into the speed of the presentation. Mooching proves that the actual spin speed and action mean very little when fish are around. I watched 4 guys with a combined total of 135 years of king fishing expirence who argued all day about propper cuts and spins.. lose all day long to a kid using a luhr Jensen flasher.. so the answer is... sure, mabe, no, of course.. never, always... pickin up what im putting down?:rolleyes:;)

Just saw this thread. I've used a similar product but never really did well with them. Went to plug cut and started hammering them. If you get a cutter like was shown above it's really easy to get a good roll. Look to see what guides are using you'll just roll with the plugged herring..

I think these rigs can work but you need a higher speed than what is normally trolled at in the bays. Maybe better for the ocean?
