Each plug is made out of wood, hand turned on a lathe. The plugs are then sanded, sealed and hand painted.
The plugs were originally designed for Kamloop/Rainbow Trout, and then were found to also attract Lake Trout, Bull Trout, Salmon, Bass and Pike.
Plugs can be trolled behind a boat with no weight. They can also be trolled using planer boards, and down riggers.
Ideally you should troll with the plug 100-300 ft behind the boat. Always remember the calmer and clearer the water, the further back the plug should be from the boat.
If fishing in deep water the plug can be closer to the ball, in shallow water the plug needs to be farther away from the ball.
Yes, bait can be attached from the front hook and scent can also be applied to the plug.
Yes, if the plug is tracking only in one direction, and not the other, you can tune the plug by turning the eye in the opposite direction that the plug is tracking.
The speed of trolling depends on the species of fish being sought. For Rainbow Trout I suggest trolling at 1.5-3.5 mph, for most salmon you need to troll at 1-2.5 mph, Lake Trout 1-2.5 mph. Trust your instincts, you are fishing, don’t be afraid to switch it up.
On bright days, try bright colors, and on dark days try dark colors. Don’t be afraid to mix it up. Try to match your colors to the bait fish. Sometimes it’s not just the color, it’s the action of the plug.
