Thanks for the questions.  The king candy 🍭 plug is designed to roll slowly.  When I saw your question Dommie I thought of adding some more information ℹ️.  It seems like our winter fish are spooky.  It just seems like we fish differently up here,  the water we fish is fairly shallow compared to offshore trolling and maybe flashy scares them?   We generally fish with 6-8 ft leaders.   And yes itís more difficult to boat 🚣 a fish, check your gear,  but itís generally the rule.

Recently the Blue Pearl whole herring has produced a Smiley 😊.
   Hereís the plug, complete w teeth marks.   Good for cloudy water 💦. Like when we get wind and a bunch of rain ☔️.

We fish the. Shore line  mostly, not open and deep r water.    Usually the locals if you could believe them  can be a short cut to your success.    Itís not  easy ,    Time will tell..

  Here is a little short clip of getting away from the house for a wintery spring morning.  The weather broke for a couple of days, and the boat was already in the water.   Here is the net result.  pun intended. Wink

Water is like glass, wow.
So you troll 2 lines, did you ever end up with a tangle?

I found the king kandy online and bought a few for my spring trolling.

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

Thanks ,  usually o rod on each side of the boat 🚣‍♀️ is ok,  we fish the rods about 90 degrees out from the boat gunnel this keeps the line s separate d as much as possible.  Of coarse sharp turns mean cussing.🤦‍♀️ 
   Occasionally a center rod can be used.   Three people onboard usually means it is a party 🎉🎣🤪🌚🍺🏀🏈.  I enjoy the serene atmosphere and a cool 😎 morning.   Then the work starts,.🔚

I was recently gifted a new color in the whole herring size.  It may work good in the cloudy water?

Thanks for sharing your questions.  The ones in your pictures are the smallest type this company currently makes, itís called the candlefish.  Then they make a cut plug, and a mini whole herring. The plug Iím using is the largest plug, itís called the whole herring.   I hope the ones you have work for you.  I think you will have to troll faster to make them roll.  Iím not really familiar with them for our kings here butt itís about the size of the feed coming out of a fish when cleaned.
   Testing them is always fun,  try the action of the lure before making any changes is my advice.🚣‍♀️🎣

Yes, you needs to look at what youíre lures doing in the water.  Then you will know at what speed you need to troll,  and. Get some time your lure.best of luck.  Usually you can make some simple changes and make a bingo .   🎣

Recently the point Wilson people introduced a mini whole herring, itís just sized down from 6 to 4 inch.
  Itís yet to be on my boat 🚣‍♀️,  we only have a couple of days left in our managed season.   Butt this little guy has potential for sure.   Just saying.   Coho season is coming.🤞
