    What's your favorite hoochy(s) color or profile. I have a few, although I am primarily a plug and spoon guy. :)

    Let's see yours! :)

    Here are some that have done me well over the years. Many of these are OG and hard to find now. Some are still easily obtainable. :)

    Very nice.

    No pictures but go to’s are pearl white glo, cop car, blue and green glo splatterback, army truck, and purple haze needlefish.

    Hoochies always catch fish!

    How have the ones with the small spinner blades worked?

    Very well...I can troll them on their own or behind a flasher or dodger, but I prefer a PAL #2 or #3 dodger. Luhr Jensen or Gibbs dodgers will work too but the PAL seems to be preferred by the fish that I get.

    My favorite if I had to choose just one is YAMASHITA Octopus / OG174R. It just kills it for Chinook!

    I will share a picture when I get home,, So far it has caught a dog fish trolling at 3 knots, a seagull while setting back, two chinook grills at the same time and some decent size feeder chinooks.

    How do you rig the big turd hoochies

    Lots of ways to accomplish this. There are special sized gum puckies to catch the spacing, or use two cuttlefish gum puckies, or use 4 to 6 8mm or 10mm beads to reach the desired spacing.

    Or put a bead in the head with a broken off tooth pick pushed in it beside the line. This makes the hook position within the hootchie adjustable and works the same as the tension tooth pick in a teaser head. I always rig them with one single hook attached to a small swivel and place the hook as far back as possible without any of it showing out the back of the hootchie.

    By far the most consistent I've ever run.
