Sacramento River King Salmon 10-18-2017

Returning clients Mark Largent and Mark George were out with me on October the 18th to hopefully catch some king salmon. We started our pass in search and after nearly ending our run the starboard side went down and Mark Largent grabbed the rod and quickly brought the fish to the net and I was able to scoop it up, so we headed back up river for another pass and this time we almost made it to where we caught the last one the port side went down and Mark George grabbed the rod and quickly brought it to the net for me. After making several more passes and nothing at 1:30 it was looking like that’s all we would get, when the starboard side went down in very shallow water and Mark Largent landed his second fish, so I hurried and got the rods back out fishing and as soon as I did I was bending over the boat bleeding the last fish as I looked up at the portside rod it was pulsing hard over hard at me, so Mark George grabbed the rod and fought the fish and soon it was in the boat and limits were had. A great day on the Sacramento river with two great guys. Thanks again!!

Sacramento River King Salmon 10-17-2017

Returning client Vince brought along his buddy Bob to chase down some river salmon on October the 17th. I set out the rods and gave some instructions mainly to Bob as he was new to this type of fishing, is wasn’t even a few minutes and we had our first take down and Bob was into the first fish of the day and in short order it was in the ice chest, so I headed back up river to our starting point and started over again and we had another takedown and it was Vince’s turn to land his first fish of the day, we headed back up-stream again, this time we made it past the area where we caught the other fish, well into our pass and almost to the end we had another take down and soon Bob had his second fish of the day and his limit, and by ten o’clock they both had their limits of King salmon. A great short morning with two great guys. Thanks again.

Sacramento River King Salmon 10-15-2017

Returning client Jeff Kennedy brought along his buddy and his son in hopes of getting Fritz his first river salmon on Sunday October 15th. We headed out and this was all about getting this young guy his first salmon as his dad was there just to watch. We headed down stream on our first pass in search off, after getting half way down we had our first take down and Fritz was reeling on the first fish of the day, he battled the fish for some time and after getting it close to the boat a few times but not close enough, it went under the boat and back out then the fish was gone along with the lure as it was chewed off and you could tell that’s what happened. We re rigged and starting fishing again and within a hundred yard stretch we had three fish hooked up and only one of the fish made it to the boat. That was it for the day. We still accomplished what we set out to do, just would’ve been nice to have four fish. Thanks again guys.

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

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.

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!!!!!!!
