    I'm not sure how you are rigged up, but seeing as you are so new, it might be quite productive for you to search for bait balls , and jig. I know this sounds crazy but I have caught lots of decent Springs using this method. Go buy some point Wilson darts and sink them below the bait balls. Jig upward, and hang on. No promises, but good luck.

    Well my boat has downriggers and I must have about $500 in flashers, hootchies, spoons, and what have you. I was thinking and even going to try your suggestion Riverboy but unless everything stayed static- how would you stay in a bait ball with tides and wind and bait ball moving around? I think it would have to be dead calm??? I ended up trolling for about 4 hours with flashers - one purple crush w/ army truck hootchie and one green onion flasher with cop car spoon, I varied depth as I marked the occasional fish, trying to be a bit below them...up to about 200 ft. Nothing. Then when I was working the hump, I was marking a bunch of fish around 30-40 ft, are these coho as they usually are shallow, no? I tried at their depth with other combos but realised everything I had read was for Springs- I'm not sure how to fish coho! I was watching Youtube vids on the boat trying to learn quick! I was even seeing them jump a lot. Nothing again. Oh well, went back shallow and caught some flounder! Still had a great day an eventually will figure these things out!

    That's why it's called "fishing" not "catching". Keep at it, you'll eventually figure it out. Ask me how I know...
