Default Sculpin VS Goby

Ever notice how much all the Goby imitations at BPS look like a Sculpin?

Has anyone tried drifting these thru deep holes in any of our big freestone rivers like the Colorado? I was thinking maybe a 1/16 oz to 1/8 oz jighead and Goby imitation drifted thru the current might fool some big Browns? Isn't that what a Muddler is suppose to represent?

I have done this with very positive results on the uncomphagre and lower gunnison river system. In the right area you would be shocked at how well this can work. Here is a couple more great sources for these as well..... http://www.snakebite.net/4Sculpincolors.html

That 4" Weaver Hypertail would do the trick! If you used Floroclear line you could get away with heavier diamater line and maybe control the drift better? Maybe keep your jig drifting just off the bottom?

The only complaint I have is finding a bigger sculpin representation like 6-8" models. The sculpin we used to catch in the North Fork near Hotchkiss were usually about 6-8". My first exposure to big trout on big baits was south of montrose on the Uncomphagre throwing the biggest baits from a "banjo minnow" kit. This was way back when they first came out and you could only get them on t.v. Almost landed the biggest bow of my life on one but it spit the hook.(didn't let him eat it long enough with the hook placed in front of the bait) Maybe I shoulda rigged up some kind of stinger. Was shocked to say the least when I saw this leviathan rainbow shoot out of a seam and inhale that bait. I think those big banjos were about 8" Proceeded to catch a bunch of browns on them, even the smaller 2-3# browns would eat the biggest size. Wish I were back over there to try it again. Good luck and let us know how you do. You ought to try some mouse/rat style baits as well, maybe even some that are intended for topwater us and rig them on a bouncer rig with "pencil" led like the steelhead guys use. There are alot of shrews(at least there is on the west slope) that swim underwater all the time and I bet you would get bit. When I was a kid we used to "shingle" big deer mice in the Uncomphagre and nail the big browns. Never thought about going plastic with that in mind, would be interesting to try. Also big plastic craws like the YUM crawbugs would probably get you some fish as well.

I have thrown tube jigs in the Roaring fork and Colorado with success, never any giants and mostly all browns. But they definitely will go after them!
