The Bounty Continues

With the red beads I scored three fish two coho and one Chinook. The Chinook was a fluke a fish I got but didn't hook.

It had been hooked five previous times I hooked the line that was attached to those hooks. But I got him.

Morning and evening

The 6mm red beads on a hook were hit like a spinner. Youngest brother got his first Coho.

I got two nice chinook.

My wife got her first Chinook.

Release wild chinook. This is a wild I released.

Knots I use

Here is an answer to a few guys that say they can hook fish but keep having them run off with the hook. These are the knots I use.

1. Run a line through the hook eye and down the shank of the hook. Form a loop below the hook with the line.

2. Pass tag end of line around hook shank and through loop 4 to 6 times. Keep wraps tight to each other.

3. Work coils down shank to eye and pull tag end and standing line to tighten.

This is the knot I use for tying my swivel.

1.) Pass a 15cm loop of line through the eye.
Lock the upper part between thumb and forefinger, making a loop.
2.) Make two more loops over the double part, holding them too, between thumb and forefinger.
3.) Pass the end through the two loops just made, plus the first loop made in step2.
4.) The formed knot can now be drawn into shape, and worked down against the eye of the hook or swivel.

Nisqually : I got mine

I went all week four mornings before work and one evening without a fish taken. I hooked and fought 21 fish and had a number within six feet of me but still lost them mainly to leader breaking. I upgraded to twenty pound test and still lost them. But today my streak was over one silver and one chinook mini jack.

This red bead set up worked to get the fish to bite: use a 0/2 gamakatsu barbless hook, 2 beads, 20lb mono leader about 8' long. Tie the leader to the hook then slide the beads on and run the leader through the eye of the hook.

The evening was a blast my friend also got two

My brother in law got two.

The fish is so chime it is reflecting the red from the car.

Nisqually brutes

This weekend we landed three bright chinook. All in the ten to fifteen lb. range. We hooked and lost a lot of fish.
This is my second chinook caught using my yarn balls.

This is my friend and he knows how to get a picture. It's his size not the fishes that should be noted. ( I'm kidding) this is a nice fish.
