1. Details: Pink Salmon

    While visiting family in Seattle I decided to hit the river for some salmon. Drift fishing and jigging was proven successful. Managed to land a Coho as well.

We were talking to a grandfather and his grandson who ...more were fishing the bank at the time. The grandpa was confused as to what we were fishing for when he saw the size of our baits. We told him "Largemouth Bass". As he was still trying to wrap his head around the concept it happened...BOOM!!!

  9. Fishing at night is like a box of chocolates! You never know what you gonna get. Sometimes you don't even see what you have until it's at the boat. Sometimes ...more you don't get to see the fish at all. Fortunately that wasn't the case this time. A tip of advice, if it feels like a good one, tell your net man immediately. It's better to cry wolf than to cry over losing the fish of a lifetime.

  10. Unless your fishing a topwater swimbait, most of the time your best off fishing the very bottom. On every cast I make sure I allow plenty of time to let my swimbait ...more sink to the bottom. That way I can just crawl it along bumping into structure. Just make sure you are using a bait that doesn't have hanging trebles, otherwise you'll lose a lot of baits fishing like this.
