I have not done any summer hog hunting before. What are some of the techniques? Should I put the kwik fish away and break out the Alvin's? Should I head for deeper colder water? Any advice appreciated as long as it is not telling me to go to Albertsons or the like.

By-the-way this was my first springer season. I have not gotten a fish yet but I still have Saturday(to be an official spring fish). Although, I have taken a few others with me and they ALL have gotten fish. After I set them up using the advice I learned on this board. It's a good thing I realize it is fishing and not catching.

I did pretty good last year with Alvins in 30 to 40 foot of water. It reminded me a lot of fishing for URB's. Matter of fact, on our first trip last year trying it out for the first time we caught two.

I tried them two years ago with no success. Mouth of the Sandy in a hog line. I was out there 4 or 5 times. Kept telling my wife we would be having salmon for dinner. :blush:
Where should someone target at the season opening for a good chance at one of these hawgs?

I cought two of them my first trip out last year too. But, unlike Chris, I fished them just like springers - kwikfish in 18 feet of water. They ate just like springers - I'm guessing I cought late springers and Chris cought some early Tule bucks. :grin: :grin:

They were both nice fish - one 26 and one 28. Saw several cought that were about that size or bigger so I do believe they are the "June Hogs" that the old timers talk about. I fished for them at Sand Island in front of St. Helens. I'll be back out there again for the opener this year.

What classifies a salmon as a true "Summer?" How would I determine whether the fish is a late run Springer or a Summer King?

We've hooked these chinook on spinners, small/steelhead size Flatfish, Alvins and bait wrapped Kwikfish in water anywere from seven to 30 feet deep. Just choose a place and method you like and go get 'em.

They have to be fin clipped.
