  2. Set Gear at least 50′ behind your boat.
  3. Dick Nite Dodgers or Sling Blades are a must.
  4. 9-15″ leaders for Wedding Rings & God’s Tooth lures and 20-24” for Dick Nites.
  5. Try a double hook set up to increase hooking/landing ratio.
  6. Bait each hook w/ white shoe peg corn, Berkley Gulp or live maggot.
  7. Smear dodgers with scent: Kokanee gel, lotion, or DNA, also Anise oil, and shrimp oil.
  8. Troll 1 mile per hour, kicking it in and out of gear.
