We only fish for Wild King Salmon also known as Chinook Salmon. Ever get a chance to play tug-of-war with an ocean fresh salmon? You will never forget it once you’ve landed one of these fine eating and highly prized fish.
We troll (boat is constantly moving forward) from two to four miles per hour depending on the bite, with up to eight rods in the water simultaneously. When we hook a fish the quick release automatically releases the “hot” fishing line from the gurdie cable and the angler is now connected directly to the hooked salmon. All the remaining rods keep fishing and often one or two other rods will pop their release with fish on! We have had multiple double, triple and even quad salmon hookups using this technique. It’s controlled chaos, it’s wild, and it’s fun.
Each angler is allowed two salmon
Usually we come back with salmon varying from 4 to 30 pounds. Our biggest went 42 pounds!
