2019-10-31T08:52:51-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer August normally brings epic silver fishing in South Central Alaska. We planned a trip months ago in hopes of filming several episodes of Pautzke Outdoors to showcase the state’s phenomenal late season silver salmon runs.

By: Andy Bliss During the spring and early summer the salmon on Lake Ontario can be anywhere. Normally, the majority are in the west/central part of the lake.

Learn The Perfect Brine for Saltwater Salmon

2019-10-31T08:52:51-07:00

By: Tim Bouchard For a decade I’ve been running charters to catch saltwater salmon. During that time I’ve always run herring paired with a hoochie. To be honest when the salmon are thick you can catch them on anything. However, when fishing gets tough brining baits and adding color can help catch rates skyrocket. On [...]

Salmon Season Reopened: Eureka Salmon On the Chew

2019-10-31T08:52:50-07:00

By: Gary Blasi This season has been whacky. We’ve never had a split season like this where we are allowed to catch salmon for two weeks and then it’s shut down for two weeks. And, we only have 61 days total to chase salmon. It’s been weird. While it doesn’t bother the salmon we can’t [...]

By: Todd Daniels This isn’t a great time of year for getting fresh eggs. Those of us chasing summer steelhead in the Northwest are likely using eggs from the fall or winter. In fact, all of my eggs were cured months ago in either BorX O Fire or Fire Cure. Finding fresh eggs is rare [...]

By: Chris Shaffer We’ve been monitoring websites from the piers in the greater Virginia Beach area for a few months now. Most advertised the best blue crabbing in ages.
