Pure underwater salmon bite mayhem! Watch the unbelievable reactions king salmon have to clusters of eggs.
If this doesn’t get you all pumped up to fish, you’d better check your pulse! Shot on my Water Wolf camera….
Here’s another cool underwater sequence I recently shot of a king salmon going hard after a cluster of cured roe. Again I used a WaterWolf HD Video Camera for the shots. It’s not intended really to be a photo camera, so the resolution of the still shots is kinda grainy but the video looks good. I just have’t had a chance yet to edit all the footage I have.
Plus, some of the bites like this one happened so fast on video you can hardly see them!
While on a fly fishing trip to Iceland’s Vatnsdalsá River, EC caught a 28-pound Atlantic salmon — the largest fish of the summer on that river.

While I watch California’s fisheries (and the industries they support) go down the tubes due mainly to water issues, we have this: “Having shrewdly maneuvered the backroom politics of California’s byzantine water rules, the Resnicks are now thought to consume more of the state’s water than any other family, farm, or company.”

I’ve long believed that, while they aren’t technically supposed to be eating in freshwater, King salmon “fall off the wagon” from time to time to gobble up something tasty like this glob of eggs. Case in point, check out this guy I shot with my Waterwolf camera. He swam about 20 feet across the pool to attack my bait…
After spending 3+ year out in the ocean eating everything that moves, it must be hard to turn off that instinct as soon as they hit the sweet water…
Down the hatch! If, as the old wives’ tale suggests: “They pick up the roe to put it back in the nest” held true, I wonder why this guy swallowed it? :)
Simply put: Kings love eggs!
