  • Vibrax

    reading an awful lot about Vibrax...

    where what and when it really seems to be in heavy use.

    any particular color/size for different species?

    been fishing 55 years and still room to learn...did it all, I thought, not Alaska but I'm comin....end of this month Prince Wales

    My go-to lure for silvers is the #3 silver colored vibrax. It works everytime. Another favorite of mine that I've had good success with is the blue vibrax with the silver spoon. They simply work. I don't bother using anything else.

        Those are two great ckoices, but I would add a couple more colors:

        straight gold (brass)
        gold (brass) blade with flame bell
        silver blade with flame bell
        silver blade with chartreuse bell
        silver blade with hot pink blade

        Use the silver blades on sunny days, gold (brass) blades when overcast.

        Get rid of the trebles and put on the siwash.

        Break the barb off the siwash, then take a pair of pliers and curve the point toward the shank about 5 degrees from parallel, then offset the point 5-10 degrees from the plane of the hook. The offset helps you to hook more fish, the curved-in point will help you to retain them better during the fight, and the absence of the barb will facilitate their release. Especially since this is a pink year... you may find yourself sorting thru a dozen or two pinks for every silver.

        Carry a de-hooker stick and you can instantly release those fish using an elegant no-touch technique that can't be beat. It will make your life a LOT easier... and the fish's too!

          Great prescription Doc!

          Do you ever fish POW? Looks like I'm gonna be down around el Capitan this Aug..down River fron Bear Valley Resort.

          Be looking at land while there...start out with a camper, then we'll see.

          Any particuler size on Vibrax or assort according to tide etc.? Next year (or sooner) will haul my 19 Dusky from Baja to AK

          Appreciate the responses! Capt George

            OOPS! Forgot the link to the pic tutorial on using the de-hooker:

            I prefer the size 5's and 4's but in small or exceptionally clear water that you are likely to encounter on POW, downsizing to a size 3 may just be the ticket.

                how about for trout?

                My favorite trout lure happens to also be a vibrax #1. Or a sonic rooster tail which are the same lure pretty much just the rooster has some hair on it. Anyways.. try the same combos that the Doc suggested silver on bright days and gold on dark days and sometimes when you can't get them to bite on overcast days I even go to a black with black blade.
