I took a bunch of topwater bass plugs to Alaska this summer and the coho loved ’em!
Here’s a cool pic I snapped underwater of a Dolly Varden just after it inhaled some eggs and a Corky. I just got home from two months in Alaska, and it will take me some time to sort through all my photos and videos, but I’ve got some pretty cool stuff to share…including some fun video of silver salmon hitting Zara Spooks and poppers!
Sometimes everything can be right…the cast, the drift, the bait…and still the fish don’t get hooked. Here’s an interesting scene I shot on a tributary to the Togiak River in Alaska, where a nice Dolly Varden does a fly-by on roe cluster but doesn’t commit to the bait.
Okay, more from my Alaska files…Here’s a cluster of roe drifted down a run on the Togiak River loaded with Dolly Varden (some rainbows and jacks were in there too). I always cut the points off the hooks while filming (if a fish got hooked, it caused too much camera shake). This sequence is cool as one dolly rejects the bait and another comes out of the pack to eat it!
