On Day 2 of our Sund’s Lodge, BC TV shoot, we decided to start a little earlier around 5am to get to the grounds where we knew we could hook into some trophy Chinook salmon.
The excellent mixed-salmon fishing started by landing a few nice Coho salmon. These fish average 5-12 lb., they hit hard, fight hard and taste excellent! We decided to use the Rapala Classic Mooching rods & Rapala Classic Mooching Reels as well as the Rapala North Coast Mooching rods & Rapala North Coast Mooching reels all loaded with Sufix Seige monofilament line.
After about a 1/2 hr of trolling we hat several hits from Chinook salmon that did not get hooked, than all of a sudden, one of the Rapala mooching rods started pumping and the drag stared going out…..we had our first Chinook on. After an excellent fight that included several jumps, Aaron landed this trophy chinook.
It was nice to see one of the guest (and our friend), Jeff landing the largest Chinook which turned out to be a “Tyee” weighing 33 lb. Not only did Jeff catch the largest salmon of the trip, but he also did it on his birthday!!
