About Salmon and how to catch Salmon including all types of Salmon,
Coho silvers Fall Chinook upriver brights Summer Chinook Salmon. Pacific Salmon:
Salmon found in the North Pacific Ocean spawn only once, dying after
depositing and fertilizing their eggs. The best-known and most
valuable species is the Chinook salmon, which is also known as the
king salmon, Columbia River salmon, quinnat, chowichee, and takou.
Market specimens of this fish average about 9 kg (about 20 lb) in
weight, but numerous specimens more than 1.5 m (more than 5 ft) in
length and well over 45 kg (more than 100 lb) in weight have been
recorded. The Chinook salmon migrates farther than any other salmon,
often traveling 1600 to 3200 km (1000 to 2000 mi) inland to its
spawning ground. Its eggs usually hatch within two months, and the
young descend to the sea when 5 to 7.5 cm (2 to 3 in) long. The
sockeye, red, or blueblack salmon is another valuable species, as is
the Coho, or silver salmon, which has light pink flesh. Other salmon
in the Pacific basin are commonly known as the pink, or humpbacked
salmon, and the chum, or dog salmon.

PRO GREEN FISHING RODS
Pro Green rods were created for the more aggressive angler who is
fishing for inshore saltwater species. These rods are surprisingly
light for their power, yet sensitive enough to detect even the
Limit Out bait rig design produces a tight
spinning action resulting in aggressive strikes by Coho and
Chinook salmon. Our first product trial using our new Limit
Out Bait Rig was on an ocean fishing trip out of Depoe Bay
Oregon in 2007. We caught limits of salmon. The next day we
had over 37 hook ups in 4 hours of fishing, finishing with a
boat limit. We knew the special design really catches fish.
The Limit Out Bait Rig
worked great in salt water, but we needed further testing to
see if it would work in fresh water. In August of 2007 we
went to the lower Columbia, upstream of the Oregon
/Washington Bridge, to give this new bait rig a try on
upriver Columbia Chinook and Silver Salmon. The fishing was
slow but we put on a show. We had double hook ups and
finished the day with Chinook and Silver limits. At the
dock, many boats had fished all day and only averaged 2
salmon per boat while we fished only a few hours to catch
our 8 salmon.
The Limit Out Bait Rig
will catch limits of salmon, hence the name. There are two
models: the In-line Bait Rig and the Sliding Bait Rig. It is
available in four colors: Red, Blue, Clear, and Chartreuse.
For best results use thawed bait lightly salted or brined.
For something different, try adding two beads and a plastic
clevis with a #4 Colorado blade on the leader to convert to
a spinner bait rig.
We hope you have a
great fishing season with new Limit Out Bait Rig and Limit

Anglers fish for salmon with rod and reel, often using flies as
bait. Commercial fishing for salmon is done on a much larger scale,
employing traps and pound nets to catch the fish on the way to their
spawning grounds. Salmon canning is one of the major industries of
the American Pacific coast. To mitigate the decimation of wild
salmon runs caused by construction of dams and overfishing, the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service yearly deposits billions of salmon eggs
and young, propagated in nurseries, into natural breeding grounds
and constructs fish ladders for the upstream journey of mature
salmon. However, hatchery-raised salmon have aggressive feeding
habits-that is, they spend most of their time at the water's surface
looking for food unlike the wild salmon that spend most of their
time in deep water or under cover. As a result, hatchery-raised
salmon consume most of the food wild salmon need to live. At the
same time, this aggressive feeding makes hatchery salmon more
vulnerable to predators because they stay near the surface. Hatchery
salmon usually have less genetic diversity (see Genetics: Genes in
Populations) than wild salmon, which can lead to lowered resistance
to disease and other environmental hazards. The annual harvest of
wild and farm-raised salmon in the United States averages about
478,000 metric tons, of which about 60 percent is canned.
Salmon Recipe How To Catch
And then How to Cook Salmon
Place the fillet in a zip lock bag and marinate
it in Italian salad dressing for 45 min to an
hour. Place it skin side down on aluminum foil
and put under the broiler. Just before it's done
(about 15 minutes per inch of thickness)
sprinkle a layer of shredded parmesan cheese and
let it melt.
