For Reveals Easy Cure For Fall King Eggs


By Brad Wagner | 10/23/2013 I’ve been working on egg cures my entire life. However, the new method I’ve been using may be my effective ever for fall run Chinook. It has been out fishing my other egg cures 5-1 and is simple and quick. Rather than waiting on powder cures that can take longer [...]

Huron Steelhead On Fire Early In The Season


By Josh Choronzey | 10/18/2013 I love October. Not for the same reasons as many of my West Coast American friends, however.

By Bojan (Bojangles) Zivkovic | 10/16/2013 This year’s charter season has kept me busy out in the blue zone almost every single day, which has made for less time spent fishing for early season Chinook salmon on the piers and in tributaries throughout Southwestern Ontario. As much as I love hardware chucking, trolling, and watching [...]

Chartreuse Eggs!


By Andy Bliss | 10/15/2013 When Pautzke introduced their line of Fire Brine I, like most of you, thought it was made to color and brine "fish" baits. When I was told that Fire Brine could be used to cure eggs, too, it opened up a whole new world of opportunities! Personally, I started using [...]

Oswego River Salmon Peaking Now


By Kevin Davis | 10/14/2013 The last few days on the Oswego River here in Upstate New York have been a roller coaster. Last Tuesday Syracuse got more than three inches of rain, which pushed the river from 1,800 to more than 12,000 cfs and drew lots of salmon to the dam. However, the awesome [...]

It’s Chetco Bubble Season Time!


By Andy Martin | 10/11/2013 One of the most anticipated salmon fisheries on the West Coast in early October is the so-called "Bubble Season" at the mouth of Oregon's Chetco River.

Warm Water Forcing Anglers To Use Lighter Colors On The Niagara


By Ted Kessler | 10/03/2013 Our Niagara River salmon season started out really good, but we had a long stretch of warm weather and it’s slowed down a lot recently. It’s turned into feast or famine. One day you get two or three they next you get six. The high sun and warm temperatures is [...]
