question for the Group
Ok, I am slowly becoming less of a novice fisherman, but I still have questions. So here it goes. I am out on Pelican slow trolling for the Kings with about 75 other boats the other day. I see some of the commercial guys going in circles and they have some pole contraption hanging off one side of the boat. I figure it is a teaser of some sort but am curious to know what that thing is. I see these guys using handline and dragging in fish after fish while I only boat 1 of 9 hard strikes. The ones i miss come back stripped of bait but no hook up even with double hooked Bally or stinger rigges Bally. So, enlighten me, those with more experieince, what is the contraption and what tactics do you prefere on these bait stealing little Ba%$#@ds?
