I fished with a guy last summer that had a hinged rig that opened up and he packed tuna fish in it. It had an o-ring that slid over the back end that
held it closed. He ran it about 36" in front of a spoon. It caught the only fish that day.
Has anyone ever heard of this gizmo? Who sells them? What other scents does anyone use? How do you run these with dodger/flies, spoons or
anything else? Thanks for your information. Dave

we have one that you put near a downrigger ball and will disperse a scent. Its shaped like a football. Haven't ran it yet but it has small holes in the front and rear of it and spins, it takes herring oil. We always run meat rigs, so they are dispersing scent as well.

Sounds like the Brad's Super Cut Plug.

I have never heard of anyone running it in front of a spoon before, but I guess it works. I ran it clean and behind a flasher, and both ways caught fish (I did better without the flasher). I tried Shamrock, Watermelon and Glow Wonder Bread. All were stuffed with tuna mixed with herring oil. It worked for me on downriggers and leadcore. The factory-supplied leader length is good, just remember to use a bead-chain swivel. These things are constantly rotating and will twist up the line badly without the swivel. Good Luck!
