When using Gibbs Dog Tail Dodgers and Bling Blades, it's important to select the right bait to attract Kokanee. Corn is a popular and affordable bait for catching Kokanee while trolling, but adding a scent like Delta Garlic Bloody Tuna Oil or Gel and Delta Kokanee Special Super Gel can make your bait irresistible to Kokanee. By threading a kernel or two of corn onto your hook and adding a small amount of scent, you can increase your chances of reeling in your limit of fish. You can also pre-mix your corn and scents in small resealable containers, freeze any unused portions to avoid spoiling. With the right technique and a little bit of patience, you can enjoy a delicious meal, maybe even a few!

When fishing for Kokanee, it's important to have patience and pay attention to the water conditions. The best time to fish for Kokanee is typically in the early morning or late evening when the water is cooler. Trolling is the most common technique used to target Kokanee and effective speeds are normally around 1-1.5 mph. When targeting Kokanee, it is important to vary the depth of your lures until you find where the fish are feeding. Kokanee are known to school together, so once you find one, you are likely to find more in the same area. Pay close attention to your rod tip for any subtle bites, as these fish have small soft mouths and the bites may not be as obvious as with other species. Once you detect a bite, set the hook quickly and gently to avoid losing the delicate fish.
