Here’s your answer…
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’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!
RIP Okuma Water Wolf Camera….On a recent ocean trip, I had some amazing footage going of lings, rockfish and cabezon eating live herring on camera.
I kept telling myself to quit while I was ahead but getting killer shots with those cameras is so damned addicting. So, I dropped it down with one more herring.
That’s when big mama ling came out and grabbed my bait. I had her up off the bottom three times before she made one final run and dragged my gear…camera and all…into the rocks. The braid snapped like cobweb and there went the Water Wolf…and all that awesomely cool underwater video. :(
Here are some videos/pix that I shot before the camera got eaten:
Denied! Here’s an underwater pic shot on my Okuma Water Wolf Camera today of a striped bass giving my lure the equivalent of the middle finger.
He followed for about 10 feet and then decided something just didn’t look right. The interesting part of this shot is the fact that my lure has flipped upside-down…right at the same time the fish rejected it. In previous frames, he was right on the plug’s tail…and the lure was running true.
I had no idea the plug had any roll to it, even after tuning it next to the boat…and yet here it is “flying inverted.”
