When using Diver and Bait in Rivers such as the Cowlitz, how long should my leader be? What size hook? Thanks

I would suggest a 4-5' leader and use a 1/0 or 2/0 hook. play it out about 45-50' behind the boat.

How deep is the water?

If it is less than 10 feet, I run Mag Hot N Tots( Brads now).

If it gets deeper that I run a 30' jet diver 50 feet behind the boat.

As soon as I can get the line away from the boat I run 50' jumbo jets.

The shortest lines possible make control easy. 100' out is real hard to keep everything in check.I try to keep my lines close to 50 feet.

Mark and the dog.
