Thread: More King questions...

    Default More King questions...

    Caught the thread about hook size & the other as well.
    I usually just use store (TW) bought pre-tied rigs (complete with SNG or cheater---what's the difference between the two?) or sometimes I'll buy the hook/leader rig and rig up the SNG/beads myself.
    What lb test do you guys like for drifting SNG/eggs (as in the leader)? I was thinking of maybe making my own rigs out of fluorocarbon leader; is the extra $$$ worth it on the glacial Kenai? Last time I drifted, we lost a couple of rigs from snagging; I think we let out too much line; I see guys cast out the rig from the boat and that's pretty much it? Maybe too much weight? Should be tapping the bottom regularly?

    I use 60# leader and 2.5 oz of weight. You should be tapping/dragging the bottom regularly. And no, you don't need to invest in fluorocarbon leaders... Kenai Kings certainly aren't leader shy.

    fishing isn't about life or death... it's more important than that.
