How to Rig Brad’s Kokanee Cut Plugs to catch more Salmon

On this weeks Tip Tuesday we are going over how we rig up our Kokanee Cut Plugs to catch more salmon. Over the past three years we have experimented with a number of different hook configurations to try an get the best performing hook setup. What we have settled on two different set ups that seem to give about an equal hook to land ratio. The first is a single #4 treble rigged behind eight 4mm beads, and the second is two #1/0 Owner Cutting point octopus hooks. The two hook set up is also rigged behind eight or so 4mm beads. The purpose of the beads is to set the hook just behind the cut plug, an to let the lure spin freely on the line enabling it to spin faster that it would if it had to spin the hooks an the lure. Check out the video below to get all the details on how we rig these awesome little lures. Also make sure to check out our other tip videos on how to make you a better salmon fisherman.

  1. what pound of leader are you using when tying up the cut plugs and the 1/0 Hooks? also running those behind a flasher? what length of leader between the leader and the flasher?? Thank you for your time 🙂 – Tight Lines!!

    1. on the kokanee cut plugs we run 25# florocarbon. We find that that leader really lets that little lure fish well, and seems to be plenty strong to deal with whatever bites
