I bought the cut plugs the first time I saw them. I didnt try them right away, but when I did they worked. A few years ago I was in Kodiak, and went to a tent sale at Macks, and they had the double packs for like 2.50. They were rediciously cheap. I bought more. The same year i was at the mouth of a crick up in douch harbor catching silvers, chum, and humpies casting spinners, and thought I would try something different so I put a cut plug on just to see what would happen...kind of a goofy way to use those things, but caught fish after fish just casting those.
Great video. We use cut plug super baits on other rivers and do very well on silvers, kings and chums. We rig them the exact same way except use a jet diver either a 10 or 20 on a 4in dropper and a single big river bait on the business end.
fished that set-up last sunday outside the port of kalama and was the only hook up we had all day... lots of marks on the finder, and threw everything at them but TNT!!! next trip it will be deployed again! hopefully i get the hooks to stick this time
