Northern Michigan Sporting a Hot Salmon Bite

By: Kyle McClelland After a few very poor big lake trolling seasons it’s been close to a normal year on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan. It might be a little below average if you account for the low numbers in June and early July, but now that August and September are here things have [...]

Valdez Lingcod & Rockfish Providing World Class Fishing

By: Chris Shaffer While it took two hours to run from Valdez Harbor to the Gulf of Alaska, it took less than a minute to catch our first lingcod. And, literally a minute more to catch our second, third, forth, and so on. The lingcod bite was so hot that after two hours of nonstop [...]

Puget Sound Expecting Big Push of More Pinks & Coho This Weekend

By: Mike Ainsworth While some of our North Puget Sound rivers are loaded with pink salmon right now large numbers of our migrating fish are starting to stage in The Sound to start making their runs in all the tributaries, including Lake Washington.

Eureka Salmon Around – If Headed to Cape Mendocino

By: Gary Blasi It’s been a very odd year on California’s North Coast. This El Nino has things weird. Conditions have been changing hourly, which has made the salmon go to the bottom, them go away and then come back. Everyday has been different. There hasn’t been a pattern we can follow. Basically, there’s a [...]

While running straight herring is popular, and always will be, there are alternatives that are getting play, too. Personally, I run Brad’s Super Bait and Super Cut Plugs and have been doing [...]

Valdez Alaska Silver Run Back On Track

By: Tim Bouchard Fishing for silvers was terrible out of Valdez last year. However, this season things are back to normal. One of the best silver runs in Alaska is back on track. We’re nearing the peak of our silver run and things are looking good. Meanwhile, it’s been a weird run. The silvers came [...]

The Cure For Pinks: Learn To Cure Pink Eggs

By: Duane Inglin Every odd year we have a great opportunity in the Pacific Northwest. Pink salmon (humpies) return to our Puget Sound Rivers by the millions. Right now, this fall more than seven million our on their way. That equates to approximately 3.5 million reasons not to discard humpy eggs into the river along [...]

Snohomish Pink Salmon Already On Fire

We’ve been expecting an enormous run of pink salmon in the North Puget Sound. In fact, more than six million are expected to return. Our pink run on the Snohomish River opened on Sunday and it’s been very good since the minute it did. Action is already incredible and the numbers of pinks are building [...]

Learn How To Make Wraps For Your Salmon Plugs

By Luke Haman When running plugs you are going to catch more fish with scent regardless of where you are, be it in Alaska, the Northwest or Great Lakes. Adding scent to plugs is no secret. Anglers have been doing it for decades. I’m simply going to share what I’ve been doing the past 17 [...]
