Sacramento River King Salmon 10-14-2017

New client Bob and his son Spencer were onboard on Saturday October the 14th to see how and hopefully catch some king salmon. instructions were first on what happens we get a fish on ,and on the first pass that happened. It was Spencer’s idea to take his dad fishing, so it was Bobs turn first, and when he was fighting the first fish of the day as it neared the boat and few swift maneuvers around the boat, the fish came undone Ugh! but that happens in this sport, however this would not be the only chance of the day. Spencer did not get a turn but his dad Bob did and landed his limit of Sacramento River king salmon. Turns out Bob went to the same high school I did, he was a few years ahead of me and it was great catching up on the past. A great day with great people. Thanks again guys!!!

Sacramento River King Salmon

Returning client Butch brought along his daughter Jeannie and her husband Tony on Friday October the 13th. The morning was very cold in the high 30s, but when you get a fish on, on the first pass the cold goes away quickly and that’s what happened, this was Jeannies first salmon fishing adventure and she did great fighting the fish. The day was a tough day as we did not have to many chances, and close to the end of the day when everyone was quite and not expecting anything to happen, all hell broke loose as the starboard side rod was POUNDED hard, we cleared the rods and this fish was burning line off the reel at a fast pace and finally Jeannie got a handle on the big fish and after a few good runs I was able to slide the fish into the net. A great day with great people. Thanks again everyone

Sacramento River King Salmon 10-12-2017

Returning client Bob brought along his buddy Jerry and turns out an old classmate of mine from high school. It was great seeing Jerry. The morning was cold and after some instruction on what to do when we had a fish on it wasn’t long before a rod was hammered and Jerry was into the first fish of the day, and very quickly I was sliding the net under the fish, after getting the rods back out and snapping a few photos another rod gets pounded and some line burning off the reel, Bob is fighting a good fish and soon another fish is in the boat. After heading back up river for another pass and by 10:30 we were done with two fine limits of King Salmon from the Sacramento river. A great day with two great guys and it was great seeing Jerry again. Thanks again guys

Sacramento River King Salmon 10-11-2017

Returning clients Mike and Charlie were onboard to hunt down some king salmon on October the 11th with me, after the great day we had on the previous day I was hoping for continued great action. These guys always take turns and Mike was up first, half way down on the first pass a rod goes down Charlie and myself clear the other rods while Mike is reeling on his fish, then moment later I was able to net his fish, on the second pass Charlie landed one for himself, then a couple passes later Mike was able to land his second fish of the day, and by the day’s end, we just could not get that last fish that I call the devil-fish. Still a great day with two great guys on the Sacramento river. Thanks again!

New Clients Larry and Jim were onboard with me on October the tenth. After setting the rods, and explaining on what needs to be done when we get a fish on it was only minutes when one of the rods goes down, we all did what we needed to do and Larry was doing his part by reeling in the fish and in short order we had our first fish of the day in the boat. Before the end of the run Jim had his first fish of the day in the boat also. By 11:00 o’clock they both had their limits of King Salmon from the Sacramento river. Thanks again guys for the great day.

Sacramento River King Salmon 10-7-2017

Returning client Dennis brought along his family of six on this day. I set out four rods and not even half way down the run the portside rod goes down and Jeremy grabs the rod and we soon had our first fish of the day in the boat, great we got the skunk off the boat and during the same pass we had a solid grab that didn’t stick on the next pass we had yet another grab, however it didn’t stick either and on the third pass the same thing again, UGH!! Finally on the last pass of the day, we get a second fish. This was a very tough day of fishing for us. A great group of guys. Thanks again everyone!!!!!!!

Sacramento River King Salmon 10-5-2017

Returning clients Mike and Chris were onboard with me on October the 5th. On the first pass we were half way down river when one of side rods goes down, so Mike grabbed the rod and after a good battle we were able to put that King Salmon into the boat, I hurried and put the rods back in hopes of another fish coming by just as I got the rods back out 50 yards and BAM! another fish on and Chris was able to put this fish in the boat. After picking back up and heading back up river again, half way into the second pass one of the back rods gets hit and Mikes turn again and he lost it, Its okay I told him, and 50 yards later BAM! again another fish on, Chris was able to land this fish. On the next pass Mike lost yet another fish, the mood in the boat seemed to cool down as Mike was frustrated with himself, I again told him it was okay, as the day was looking like we would not get the last fish and I told them that we just need a go home fish and BOOM!!! the back starboard side rod get slammed so hard I struggled to get the rod out the holder as I did Mike was there ready for battle, and battle we had, many great runs and a lot extra of coaching this time, because I knew this was a great fish, then when we did finally see it, WOW is all we could say and finally it was in the net, as I sat there for a moment with the fish in the net on the outside of the boat. I lifted the fish over the rail and we were amazed at the size of this fish and as fresh as could be with scales still on it. I weighed it and it was over 25 pounds and then it measured 36 inches long. A great day on the river with great people!

Sacramento River King Salmon 10-4-2017

Returning clients Harry and Forrest were onboard with me on October the 4th. I set our rods at the top of the run and not even 20 minutes into it, BAM,BAM a double hook-up and they both were into their first fish of the day, and after a great battle I was able to put both Kings in the boat. A great way to start the day, on the same pass we would get another salmon and Harry was done for the day, Forrest would lose one. Then about 11:00 o’clock one of the rods goes down and Forrest was into his last fish of the day. LIMITS!!! Awesome morning with these two. Thanks again!!

Sacramento River King Salmon 10-3-2017

Returning clients Bill and Linda were onboard with me to try and catch King Salmon on the Sacramento river on October the 3rd. During our first pass one of side rods goes down and Bill was first up, after a short battle, I was able to put a fresh king in the cooler, up next it was Lindas she did loose the next fish, this day would prover how hard it really is sometimes to land these fish. Linda did get a very nice fish on one pass. This day we would have 7 fish on and only landing two fish. Still a nice day with this couple. thanks again!!!

Sacramento River King Salmon 10-1-2017

 

Returning client Steve brought along his 13-year-old daughter to try for her first river king salmon, the pressure was on as Steve has taken his daughter many time to no Avail. The morning was nice, but breezy, but very fishable, half way into our first run one of the back rods goes down, so I grabbed the rod and handed it off to Shelby, I asked Steve if he would help her and he said no as he wanted her to reel it all the way in by herself, and after a great struggle by her and the fish, shebly one the battle as I was able to slide the fish into the net, after some photos they both elated as mission was accomplished. The second pass yet another rod goes down and Shelby again battled yet another salmon and now this young lady had her first ever limit of King Salmon, then we focused on Steve and getting him a fish after a couple passes with nothing and with the wind really blowing now the starboard side rod was slammed hard, Steve grabbed the rod and was in for a really tough battle, as this jumped twice close to the boat and we got a great look at this fish, after some good runs I was able to put a 21 pound  King Salmon into the boat, after resetting the rods it was getting near the end of the day, when all of a sudden one of the back rods goes down and it was looking like Steve would have his limit as well, however, the fish came unbuttoned half way to the boat. A great outing was had by all on the day. And great memories for these two. Thanks again!!!
