As the salmon enter into the Inside
Passage during the summer months,
they feed on herring and needle fish
along the shoreline and kelp beds.
With a bright flash the salmon hits
the bait fish.
For a real challenge, use a
light tackle rod and reel or
flyfishing gear to fish for
You cast your fly or spinner into
the bait fish and start to retrieve.
Slow at first, working it as a
wounded herring and then faster as a
needle fish trying to make its way
out of danger.
Suddenly a school of Humpys (Pink
Salmon) come out of the deep green
water, hot on the tail of your hook.
One of the hungry salmon
strikes...you set the hook and the
fight begins. It takes several trips
around the boat before the tired
salmon is finally brought close
enough to the side of the boat to
net. After removing the hook you
cast again, waiting anxiously for
the next fish to bite.
Will it be a single Coho this time?
Or maybe even a King Salmon? You
never know, since all of these fish
feed on the bait fish.
Sounds like fun? It is!
fishing for Halibut, Rock Fish and
Ling Cod in the Inside Passage is a
lot different than fishing on the
outside waters. Our seas here are
very mild. Many days the water
is so calm that you might think that
you were fishing on a lake.
Halibut can weigh up to 250 pounds
and is fantastic eating.
