Hoochie rigs
      #328398 - 04/10/08 07:09 PM

How do you rig and fish your hoochies? I've seen some rigged with a spinner blade on the line, and even some right on a spinner shaft with beads, blade etc. Can you cast/retrieve those for kings, ho's, etc/ Thanks for the info.

I fish my hoochies with a single bead in the head and some tube/straw to match the hook length. Double hook set up, fixed. No cast/retrieve, down riggers. You really need to run a flasher with hoochies so casting would be tough. In some fisheries you may be able to jig smaller hoochies. I have not flat lined spinner/hoochies before so I don't know about that.

If im trolling I use a flasher with a hootchie on a double hook setup with a bead in the head.
you can cast spinners with hootchis on them for coho's and humpies. I have never caught a king casting one.
If your trolling spinners for kings in tidewater or the lower sections of the river they will work on a spinner.

Double Gami hooks and two twinkle skirts. I have used those small spinner blades that are on a prawn rig and those have worked well. Herring or Anchovie fillet and light 'em up with a camera flash. You can get a used camera flash cheap at a camra store. I got two used flashes last year at a camera store for 20 bucks.

There's literally a few dozen ways to rig a hoochie... Are you beach fishing? Assuming so, you can also add brass, tungsten or lead worm weights inline and then add some type of noise making device to the front of the hoochie. e.g., Mack's Smile Blades, spinner blades, or Spin N Glo, cast and retrieve. Throw in a couple "pops" of the rod tip every so often and hold on.
