I didn't have much luck on the Gulkana last year. I was using roe.
What do you guys do? I am fishing with a Cat from Sourdough.
Can anyone set me straight on what to use?
Also, what spots do I look for to fish in? In the main current of the river?
Any advice and tips would be appreciated
Anyone do it like this?
What kind of bait or lure should I use for Kings?
The best bait to use is fresh or cured salmon roe (eggs) rigged with a quarter sized orange "corky" above the hook. Sometimes a second hook is tied above the corky so chances of hooking a King are increased. In order to increase fishing time by decreasing rebating stops red or orange mesh material is used to contain the eggs in a pouch. Above the top hook 18-24 inches we attach a barrel swivel, to prevent tangling and twisting of you leader. Above the swivel we attach a piece of pencil led using a large rubber band. The swivel prevents the led from sliding down to the bait. Another lure that we are very successful in catching the mighty King with is the Magnum Wiggle Wart, that is a lure that is very obnoxious under the water and the Kings hit them hard!
