HOW TO playing hard to get I have not found anything as effective as a threaded night crawler. To rig a threaded night crawler, I start off by snelling a No. 6 bait holder hook on the end of a 36 inch 10-pound test fluorocarbon leader. Next I take out a night crawler and slide it onto my worm threader. If you’ve never seen a worm threader, it is a simple wooden handle with an 8-inch section of fine diameter metal tube imbedded in it. The tip of the tube is cut off on a sharp angle. Once I have the ‘crawler impaled on the threader, I slide it down to the handle. After that I place the hook tip in the end of the tube and pull it down tight by gripping the leader against the wooden handle. The final step is to slide the ‘crawler up the threader, over the bend of the hook and down the leader. A night crawler threaded like this can be fished a number of different ways. You can tie the leader to a swivel knotted to July 20, 2019 the end of your main Rattlesnake Aversion Training Includes: line and pull it from • Dog training takes place in a natural .50 to 1.5 miles per controlled environment • Rattlesnake scent, sound & sight hour.

North of Sacramento 3814 Raahauge’s Rattlesnake Aversion Training $80 PER DOG By Cal Kellogg continued from page 10 Trolling For Spooky Trout Holding Near The Surface Side planers are a highly effective tool for presenting lures to fish holding near the surface without spooking them. While they are used extensively by anglers in the Midwest and east, most west coast anglers never give them a try. Almost every serious west coast trout troller you meet has downriggers, but I’d be surprised if one in ten of them had side planers. I’ve experi- mented with side planers enough to know that if we used them more we’d find ourselves putting more trout in the boat. The uninitiated are probably asking, “What is a side planer and how does it work?” A side planer is a piece of wood, plastic or foam that when attached to a line, travels away from a moving boat based on its shape. These devices skim along the surface and track along from 50 to 100 feet beside the boat with 20 to 100 feet of line tipped with a lure or bait tailing out behind them. This enables the angler to present the lure to trout without moving through the area where the trout are holding with the boat. There are many different types of side planers available to anglers these days. There are small inline models that are efficient, inexpensive and easy to use. Sep’s Pro Fishing offers the Pro Side Plainer. This inline plainer can be adjusted to track either to the port or starboard. To employ this type of plainer you let your offering out the desired distance behind the boat, attach the main line to the plainer and then free spool the planer out the desired distance to the side of the boat. When a trout is hooked the plainer partially disconnects allowing the fish to be fought with minimal resistance.
