In less than two weeks we’re going to be kicking off our seasons in Alaska and British Columbia. With it comes the year’s return of ocean fresh chinook. So, in light of their return we offer a simple tip practiced by most experienced chinook anglers..
When you land a nice fish, celebrate, but get back out there!
After landing a nice fish, the usual response is to head back to the boat, grab a cup of coffee, and look through your photos until your hands start shaking. Don’t! Get right back in there where you hooked the last fish.
Often times, these big fish travel together, and your next cast could be another monster. So, when you land a nice fish, by all means rejoice.. But then get back out there! Or, you know, let your buddy fish on through.
