This underwater video I shot in Alaska will blow your mind…watch how you can get “slack line bites” from salmon and not even know it!
I took a bunch of topwater bass plugs to Alaska this summer and the coho loved ’em!

Holy hatchery hawgs, Batman! Check out this ad-clipped 26.2-pound coho salmon caught by Kirby (R) while fishing with guide Bill “Swanny” Swann of Swanny’s Fishing.
Kirby was tossing a 1/2-ounce pink Roostertail Vibric spinner when Moby came calling. If approved by state officials, the fish will top the previous mark for silvers of 25.27 pounds, caught back in 2001 by Brad Wilson on the Quinault River.
Here’s a pic from a trip Reilly and I took to Alaska a hwile back. Sure, there were plenty of silvers on the creeks that were less remote…but NO…we had to go find bigger and more chromers way out in the woods. As soon as we got to the river, there was a fresh steaming pile of bear scat on the bank. On our way out, we found some humpies that had their brains eaten out…right on the trail.
Ah, the things we do for fish… :)
As promised, I am going to get a little more into last week’s Alaskan adventure here…starting with the awesome diversity of species you can catch armed only with a spinning rod, rental car, a handful of lures and a healthy sense of adventure!
We obviously didn’t get our mitts on everything that swims around the island — not even close — but we did pretty well considering we had no access to a boat! Here’s a look at some of the critters we caught…Click here to read more…
