Fishing Methods for Big Salmon

Vancouver Boat Show
1:15 PM - THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2017
Room 2

Seminar Details

Some fishermen consistently catch average sized salmon while other fishermen may catch fewer overall but their salmon are often quite large. Tyee (salmon 30 lbs and larger) behave differently than smaller salmon in the same run travelling to the same spawning gravel. Their migration timing is different, they swim at different depths, have different eating habits and often rest at different locations. Bill will explain why big salmon behave differently and discuss fishing methods tailored for tyee including cut plug herring, whole herring, “butt” plug, teaser head herring, Pro-Troll herring, plugs and spoons....
