Dissatisfied with the current selection of pre cut strips on the market Calumet Marine contracted the limited production of custom strips specifically cut to their specifications. They had them cut us a strip 2 to 3 times thicker then what they are currently producing because their current product would not come close to filling the larger heads that John King, Big Weenie, and a lot of other tackle manufactures are using now. It is much easier to get the right action when you are using the right size of bait.


Even though it is an earie dearie product and a lot of store carry earie dearie, the king stripes will only be available from Calumet Marine.

Order placed...do you guy usually soak these, or do you fish them right out of the tub?

Tiny,

I have been using them right out of the box; even frozen, and doing quite well.

Thank you for your business I really appreciate all the chitown orders.

Soak them, no. Put some oil in the tub when we open it to use it usually but it can be just as effective without. I guess its personal preference and weather you consider the oil to be worth the extra mess.

New to meat rig fishing, so please forgive the questions!

We have used the new strips a couple of times now, and they are very easy to use. It seems like when they soften up in the water, though, they get pretty limp. So instead of a nice shallow bend, the strip is pretty much straight with all of the bend at the tail (right at the hook). The "roll" still seems right, so I was just wondering if this was normal or if we are rigging incorrectly?

Good heads = good roll

Be sure not to curve the strips too much.

The heavy strip slows the roll down with the regular heads we all have been using for a while
the hooks need to kept behind the meat you can put some beads in there to space the hook back or just snip a little off the meat off
the strips are heavy enough that it wont effect the roll like others
if you have the smaller heads and want to speed up the roll snipping/trimming the meat is a good way to do this
one problem we no longer have with the new strips is the roll being to fast trimming is often needed jut a little bit makes a big difference

the smaller cases also is nice you can get a deal on a case and don't buy so much you cant use it before it gets old

HC: are you leaving both hooks trail? We have been hooking the front hook into the meat, and using that to adjust the curve in the bait. It sounds like you are adjusting the roll by trimming the bait instead of changing the curve in the strip...am I reading your response right?

Joel: We are only putting the slightest curve in the bait...from what I have seen on videos and such the "roll" looks right. Just trying to fine-tune the presentation, and we haven't had much success on our meat rigs thus far.

Trimming around 1/2 inch off the king strips give me a nice roll, do not put any hooks in the meat, you may be able to use a toothpick on the head to keep the hooks free. Also remember to rinse the salt off before you put on the oil.

I don't like to hook the meat but it does work its tough to get consistent results this way
i like to leave the hooks trail the meat and use beads to space the head fwd of the hooks this allows the head and herring to spin/flip on the line Independent of the line and hooks
seems like every one does this a little different and different on each boat there is no real rite or wrong the best way to do it is often different for different boats from different ports
The correct way is to play around with it till the drags starts screaming and some one is screaming FISH FISH FISH GET THE NET

THE HERRING HAS CONSTANTLY PUT BIGGER FISH IN MY BOATS
