Fishing Tackle / Gear

 
  • Bring medium to heavy weight spinning system.  Casting distance and accuracy are very important, the better you are at this, the faster you will catch your limit.  Most of the time you will be spot casting to jumpers or schools of salmon swimming by (from boat or shore).  Bring a good quality reel.  five days of fighting six or more Salmon a day will wear hard on a reel brake and gear system, also, if a seal lion decides he wants your fish, you are in for a tough fight.  The Salmon may or may not take a lure, probably depending on how long they have been in the bay, and it seems to change on a daily basis.  Click on the highlighted links below for more information on the lures.

  • We’ve had very good success with #4 & #5 spinners, Blue fox – tiger pattern.

  • Spinners with painted blades are good, fluorescent orange or sometimes black.

  • Some good success with diving plugs, like the Wiggle Warts, medium size, metallic pink and fluorescent orange.

  • Pixies don’t seem to work at all.

  • The one hot spoon is the Mepps Syclops, #3, it is the only spoon that seems to work.

  • Snagging is legal and always works.  Use a weighted (2 oz) #8 treble hook. (Bring plenty) (we will have a few for sale if you run out)
