I was down on the Kenai Penninsula this weekend looking around so I figured I would check out the Ninilchik and Deep Creek. There were quite a few folks fishing and ALL of them were doing the ol' flip and rip. Why?? A well presented bait of eggs under a float or drifted along the bottom would yield MUCH better results and reduce the number of fish that are brought in with a hook in their sides. Beating the water to death like that will shut down a bite instantly. I am assuming from reading the regs that bait is allowed untin Sept 1, so correct me if I am wrong. I watched a guy snag a beautiful chromer maybe 12 lbs and it took him 25 mins to land that fish that was snagged in the side.
