3 Salmon Fishing Techniques You Should Know About

Catching salmon can be challenging. However, you can make things easier on yourself by knowing what techniques you should use. Below are three salmon fishing techniques you can try. If you implement these salmon fishing tips, then you could end up catching a lot of salmon.

1. Hooks Should Be Sharpened- A good technique for catching salmon is to sharpen your hooks before you head out to fish. This is because salmon are known for their thick jaws, and if your hook isn’t sharp, then catching them can be that much more difficult. It’s important to use hooks that are as sharp as possible. You might be surprised at how many people actually don’t fish with sharp hooks, but if you want to increase your chances of catching salmon, then always make sure your hooks are sharp.

2. Overcast Is Key For Success- One of the keys to catching a lot of salmon is knowing which days to fish on, and days that are low in lighting are the best days. This is because low lighting conditions are preferred by salmon, so consider going fishing on days that have an overcast. If you do decide to go fishing on sunny days or days with no overcast at all, then you’ll want to fish in very deep water, but don’t expect salmon to be as active as they would be on a day with overcast.

You can cure this type of bait on your own or you can buy it from places that sell live bait. If this type of bait doesn’t work for you, then use minnows, as they tend to be another good option to use when you want to catch salmon, as well as just about any other type of freshwater fish. The best thing to do is to use both types of bait and see which one works the best.
Using the right bait can help you catch salmon. So can fishing on days with overcast and making sure your hooks are sharpened. With that said, if you implement the above techniques and the tips, then you will increase your chances of catching salmon. Give those tips a try today and see how they work for you.

What Are Some Of The Best Fishing Spots In Alaska?

Fishing in Alaska can be a little different than fishing in other places throughout the US. It’s one of the most popular pastimes to enjoy while staying in or visiting Alaska, and there are things to think about when you’re deciding on a place to fish within the enormous state.

What type of fish are you wanting to catch?

salmon fishingSalmon fishing is definitely popular in Alaska. As you decide on a fishing spot, one thing you need to consider when it comes to locations throughout Alaska is whether or not they are easily accessible. Especially if you’re new to the sport or new to the location, you might not be ready for what you encounter. You’re going to find that many locations are quite popular and easily accessible, and then there are those locations that just aren’t frequently fished.

What if you were told that you had over 800 locations to choose from for your next fishing adventure? As mentioned, Alaska is a huge state! One of the popular salmon fishing locations is Kodiak Island. The only thing is you might be able to guess why it’s called Kodiak Island. Are you willing to be on an island fishing for salmon with a bunch of gigantic bears? In all seriousness, Kodiak Island is quite popular.

Surely, if you know anything about fishing in Alaska, you’ve heard of Bristol Bay. Bristol Bay is not only the best place for fishing salmon in Alaska, but it’s also the best place for fishing salmon in the entire world. Maybe you’re not wanting to fish salmon but instead get out there and see what else you can find. There are some great spots for fishing halibut in Alaska.

One of the halibut fishing locations is Homer. Homer is where you can charter a fishing boat and get out there to see what you can catch for the day. Are you wanting a place that is a little less crowded? If so, then might head on over to the Copper River Delta, which is located in Cordova. This could be your new fishing spot where you can enjoy your hobby without being bothered as much.

If you’re looking to catch giant, trophy rainbow trout, look no further and head on down to jasons guide service fishingthe Kenai Peninsula and fish on the Kenai River. We don’t fish the Kenai, but we highly recommend hiring Kenai River fishing guide, Jason Lesmeister. His company Jason’s Guide Service will take care of you and get you on the fish! We have referred many clients to him and have only heard good things.

Of course, once you discover even more hot fishing spots in Alaska, you’re going to want to visit all kinds of places. I would advise starting somewhere more common, even if you’re an experienced fisherman. Once you get up there and get familiar with your surroundings, you can partner with locals and go elsewhere.

Surf Fishing in Alaska! 7/27/17

Surf Fishing in Alaska! 7/27/17

Fishing off the beach in Homer, Alaska for a variety off bottom fish. The fishing was insane, getting fish on just about every cast for the two hours we were there. The fish in this video shows about 1/2 to 2/3 of what we actually caught. We were using strips of dead squid for bait, starting on a low tide and fishing through the incoming tide. It was an awesome experience and we got to check out a few new species!

Fishing in Alaska: Part 1 – Salmon fishing on the Kashwitna

Fishing in Alaska. This is an Alaskan fishing trip I took to catch fish and visit family. I grew up in Alaska and spent most my life there. So it was a blast taking my sons and showing them the fishing holes in and around Anchorage, AK.
In this video we flew from Dulles Virginia to Anchorage Alaska, then I tie up some salmon fishing rigs. Demonstrate corkies and spin-n-glows and how to tie a silver salmon rig. Then we drove to the Susitna valley and fished the Kashwitna river for silver salmon and rainbow trout. Fishing for salmon in Alaska.

King Salmon and Halibut Fishing in Alaska | Sitka Sea Roamer

King Salmon and Halibut Fishing in Alaska | Sitka Sea Roamer

If you want to experience fishing in Alaska, watch this. We caught so many fish, saw some whales and sea otters, and had a great experience!

Isa and I went along with some family on a boating adventure in Sitka Alaska with Captain Mike on his Sitka Sea Roamer. We caught King Salmon, Halibut, lingcod, and pacific cod. It was an amazing trip and we had SO MUCH FUN!

**This is NOT a sponsored video. All opinions, excitement, and general enthusiasm is real and my own. I’ve been out fishing (and hunting) with Mike a few times before. I love his boat and we always have a great time so I asked if I could film what a charter experience looks like on the Sitka Sea Roamer.**

Fishing with Mike is fun and lighthearted. He’s a great teacher and he explains everything thoroughly (I’m unashamedly a city boy to the core with no real experience) and he makes sure everyone has a great experience.

Personally, I think Sitka has some of the best fishing in Alaska, but I’m open to hearing your thoughts in the comments below. Have you been charter fishing in Alaska? Where do you think the best fishing in AK is?
