4.5 INCH NEEDLEFISH SALMON HOOCHIE LURES
History of the needlefish hoochies.
British Columbia had a commercial fishing trolling fleet was a thriving industry from the early 1960's to the mid 1990's. The methods and tools used to catch fish had developed over this time to the point where conservation measures were required. The commercial fishing technologies of today are even sharper than in the prime of the good old days. Some secrets are passed on and others fade away. Today, the Skinny Boy can be the secret weapon in certain locations between spring to summer.
The needlefish hoochie was developed in the 1960's because commercial fishermen noticed that the needlefish and sand lance presentation worked well. Many salmon they caught had a red
belly caused by bottom feeding and abrasion. The theory is that needlefish and others spawn in the sandy ocean bottom in certain locations. The salmon cruise the bottom and target the needlefish that
are spawning just under the sand. When the needlefish school and spawn, the salmon and other predators rally and focus their hunting skills on bottom feeding. The salmon will pick the easiest catch
which appear to be a slow wounded prey.
