I'll have to try the method you've described and see if we can't eliminate missed hookups......
    Al, let me know how this works for you, I'd love to get some feedback on it.

    Jack, for sure. We should start hittin' it hard starting next week if that water comes down and clears. I'm definately going to give it a shot. Seems like a really good concept to avoid missed hookups.

My best, and biggest Springers that eat Herring, come on whole Red, or even Green labels. Ive got a BBQ skewer method to get them to "kink" for that alluring Chinook slayin' roll. The thing I like about whole Herring, is that it acts like a Kwikfish. It has a "skip beat action" like a plug. So every rotation is a little different... I dunno, it seems to work for me anyways!
    GREAT SECRET that few use..
