  • Dipsy Divers

    I have a trip planned in aug. to Afognak Island, Paramanof Bay. We have the use of skiffs and I was hoping for some advice on dipy's or jet divers, how to rig, best rod, color, etc.. We will try to fish the area streams first but if the silvers are not in yet I want to have another plan to fish them in the bay. Any other recomendations would be much appreciated.
    Thanks Jeff

    You don't always have to troll. I'm partial to mooching rigs, run a 2-4 oz bannana sinker, ~36" leader to a two hook mooching rig that you've put a hoochie on. Also tip the hook with a gulp 3" blue/white shad, or a piece of herring. You can use that rig for both trolling and mooching.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.

      What he said. Simple is better. Not much science involved in trolling cohos. Find a place with some bait hanging out and get your herring down there. I've "chummed" cohos to the side of the boat while I was cleaning other cohos. They love to eat.
      I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
