That's an excellent hold of salmon. Great catches.

All our fishies would like to hear the catching stories along with the pictures. please give your write up if you have some time.

When we read the stories, we just imagine ourself in the position of the hero in the story and feel the excitement.

Awaiting for the excitement.

Hi Keith
nice fish.
Most of the rods in the pics are so bent that it looks like as if the fish are on!! Or is it simply because you are trolling a deep diving plug?

The rods are bent because of downriggers, they used to take the lures/bait to required depths when trolling.

The first 3 pictures were caught during summer. This is when the Salmon and Trout are in deeper / cooler waters 50 feet +. We were using a fishing finder and using spoons with a downrigger to set the dept for trolling.

The 4 th picture is a Chinook Salmon - Male caught in late september. Once the water temperature falls the salmon come in hundreds from the lake to the river where they were born to spawn, they have a life of around 4 - 5 years if i am not mistaken, once they spawn they die. Fishing is only permitted from the mouth of the river till a kilometer or two upriver. After that its spawning grounds for the salmon.

Salmon are great fighters. The one in the last picture is a 20 LB catch. Gave me a good 15 mins of power bursts. Bait used were row bags (Eggs of Salmon or trout tied in a row bag). Line 12 - 14 lbs.

I lived in Canada for 7 years and enjoyed the fishing in Ontario - 1000's of untouched lakes and rivers and lots of freshwater species to fish. Now its fishing in Powai and a few times at the Cauvery River, Karnataka. Two great fishing spots.
