For, I'm Eric Granstrom. When I think of fishing, there are a few sounds that come to mind that are unmistakably "fishing" sounds. Of course, the splash of a fish jumping or it thrashing around on the end of your hook. The growl of an outboard motor propelling a boat across the water. Or the whizz of a reel complaining about relinquishing line to an unyielding fish. But there's another sound I don't hear very much anymore. The sound of pop gear or a gang troll. Does anyone use it anymore? The last time I saw someone using pop gear, it was not on the end of a fishing line. Instead, a very wise man who will remain unnamed attached his pop gear to his downrigger ball while fishing Kokanee in Lake Chelan. The idea is to attract the fish who love to school but not have too much weight on the end of your rod. Kokanee have such soft mouths if you put too much weight on your line, you have the chance of them shaking off. I know Mack's Lures puts out a wide variety of gang trolls or pop gear. I can't wait to hear it work. Until next time, Good Fishing!
