I'll try one out. What is your suggestion for fishing this rig? It almost looks like it would be good for trolling too. It might be good to add a squid strip to the hook.

Gregg sent me a tube lure to try out as well.

Would that only be for fluke or could it be tried on other species as well ?

That thing would work for Halibut on the West coast. I'll be glad to sample some for you. We have a Halibut Derby coming up in April. A brand new truck to the person that pull out one over 55lb.Shocked

I think 30lb would be the maximum that I would need. The Halibut barely get to 60lbs maximum, divide that by preset drag and float tube and you get a whole lot of fun.

The Halibut really have no structure to break you off with since they are mostly in the sandy bottoms.Cool

A 55lb halibut on a float tube ? I suspect you won't need to worry about any preset drag if you're on your tube when one of those hits.

You are looking for some serious fun ... aren't you ?

Post up photos when you get it and be sure to describe the experience too.

Well, if you don't get enough flounder/fluke anglers to test those out, I'll be glad to try one out on a few other species that I'll be fishing for - I can be your official "weird-case-scenario" product testor.

I was actually going to try them for flounder and for trolling. I think the rigs will work well attached to a Boone spanish bird or by itself. It would have to only be a single blade rig, and it would need to be attached closer to the lure because of the short strikes associated with the target species. They would work especially well made with flourocarbon or Yo Zuri Hybrid. Cool

Ok you two ... You've got me convinced now. I am gonna pick some of that Yozuri up to make some good old stiff anti-ejects. If it has the memory you guys have been bragging about, I'm sure it'll work for keeping the hair of a rig inline.

What color squid do you have?? Are they the Hoochies, or B52s or something else?? Inquiring minds want to know.

I need some plastic squids that will hold up to the fish. I have been through all the colors of the P-line squids. Some get better reactions than others.

I have hooked them up on the trolling rigs but I do better with some big game when I string them up with a 1 1/2oz diamond jig inside of them and cast them in the Kelp. They are bound to get hit good as long as I use the color that they are looking for that day.Cool
