Thread: corky / squid rig for copper river kings?

  1. #1

    Default corky / squid rig for copper river kings?

    Seen this rig on a couple you tube videos, it looks pretty cool. How effective is it, what size squids are people using? What size corkies? split shot weight?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    This technique works. 3" squid, 1 OZ nana weight, and a corky of any size. I've gone with one of a larger size (I have no idea the size) and I've also used 3 of the smaller sizes. My .02.

    I've never heard of people catching kings in the Copper, with the exception of where the Klutina runs into it...Would one of you guys care to enlighten me?

    Jedi, I think it is your videos on you tube that I have seen? Pretty awesome stuff, revenge of the sockeye didn't look so awesome.

    Any colors besides yellow on the squid bodies?

    Is this fished by flippin?

    I've had a lot of luck with a green squid and orange corkies.

    Jedi and I have actually caught kings at the mouth of the Klutina where it dumps into the Copper as well as about a 1/2 mile downstream from the confluence as well. There is a prominent sand bar that runs along the Copper.

    YES, you are now enlighted

    1/4 to 1/2 mile downstream of the confluence.

    Casting as far as I could get it out into the current, I believe large bright spin n glows work better with yarn at this location. I do use a variety of plastic squids in fresh water for kings, however this location would have me lean towards the spin n glow based on the amount of hook ups I have had.

    A King, a large orange spin n glow, and green yarn. I think you are developing signs and symptoms of alzheimer's?

    Fish it strait up!!! No sauce needed. Rinse and repeat

    ANNOTATE YOUR FISH IMMEDIATELY AND DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT LIFTING YOUR FISH OUT FOR A PICTURE....HEHE!
