Sacramento River Salmon Season Opens Saturday

By: Scott Feist The fate of the Sacramento River has been blown out of proportion. Yes, we are dealing with a drought and we don’t have any high releases, but it isn’t like you can walk across the Sacramento River. There’s a lot of water still coming down and one third of the river still [...]

Some Big Salmon Starting To Show On Lake Ontario

It’s been a weird spring and summer on Lake Ontario. We had really cold weather to start, then tons of wind and now it’s extremely hot and humid. Similar to last year our salmon are spread out and while we’ve been getting them, we’ve had to work harder than we like. Finally, the last few [...]

Learn Slammin Sam’s Secret All Inclusive Egg Cure

By: Sam Baird Having a great egg cure in the Pacific Northwest is vital from spring through fall when we are salmon fishing. I often get asked how I cure my fresh eggs depending on which run I'm fishing. People want to know if I cure my eggs differently for springers, summer salmon and fall [...]

Catching Niagara Lake Trout From The Bank

By: Bojangles Many die-hard river anglers already know that the Niagara River boasts an amazing fishery for both warm and cold water species within an hour’s drive from the GTA. Between king salmon, brown trout, steelhead and lake trout, these species can be targeted nine months a year. In fact, after the long winters we’ve [...]

The New Great Lakes Cut Bait Brine

It’s salmon season in the Great Lakes and we have a strong bait bite going on. After a slow early season there’s enough salmon around now that we can target them specifically with meat rigs. On the Great Lakes we typically run our cut bait rigs behind 8 and 11-inch Pro Troll Pro-Chips and 13-inch [...]

Astoria Ocean Salmon Bite On Fire

We’d only been fishing roughly an hour when Steven Theel saw one of our three trolling rods pegged over. He grabbed it, battled a 20-pound Chinook, brought it alongside the boat and guide Mike Barksdale of Fish Extreme swooped in with a pair of pliers and released it. “Another damn Chinook,” Barksdale said. “I don’t [...]

The Hot New West Coast Bait Brine

By: Gary Blasi It’s no secret we’ve used the Chartreuse Fire Brine for the last three summers up on California’s North Coast. In fact, the entire fleet out of Eureka is using it. This summer has been no different for most. However, I’ve found a new twist for my brine that I’ve been using daily. [...]

Puget Sound Crabbing Exceptional

By Mike Ainsworth We are only a few weeks into crab season in Puget Sound and so far we’ve found a lot of full pots. We’re setting our pots on the way out of the marina before we fish and it’s been limits when we return. In fact, limits have come within the first couple [...]

Multiple Species Available on Southeast Wisconsin Shoreline

By Kyle Deavers I’ve been fishing daily on the west shore of Lake Michigan since April and fortunately the trolling bite has improved this year from last year. We’ve had a very good Coho bite because the bait is staying in Southeast Wisconsin. We have a very good lake trout population on this part of [...]

Fishing Deep For Washington Coast Kings

By: Sean Orr Thirty years ago before hi tech downriggers, braided line and other essentials for deep water trolling were designed Washington’s coast was vastly unexplored for Chinook salmon by the private angler. Meanwhile, in the last 20 years these depths have been exposed and what we have uncovered is fascinating. We all knew Chinook [...]
