Luhr Jensen Rogue Rig
The Luhr Jensen Rogue Rig is designed to increase the effectiveness of live bait trolling rigs when trolling for salmon. The Rogue Rig, named after the Rogue River in Oregon, is used for trolling live bait such as herring and anchovies when fishing in rivers or offshore for big salmon. The Rogue Rig contains a small spinner blade to add color, flash and vibration to a plain live bait trolling rig. Luhr Jensen's Rogue Rig comes with simple instructions on how to most effectively rig the live bait up when using salmon trolling techniques. The Rogue Rig is constructed of 30lb monofilament line, a #6 blade, and a #2 round bend treble hook.
