I've fished out of there for the last 4 summers and have always done well on the silvers with a few Chinook here and there. What, specifically, do some of you do to target the 'nooks? I've tried running 20-30 pulls down with cut plug, hole and coyote spoons with limited sucess. We tend to start out at the gate and work our way to the CR bouy. I know some of you do quite well targeting the big boys. Any help would be appreciated. email is [email protected] for any secret info. Thanks.

I did really well last year with my catch rate being 2 nooks to 1 silver. I like to fish just down from the Church in 24 feet of water. I run a Delta diver and a 72 inch leader. I use a large fish flash about mid way into the leader. I run the diver down until I can feel it hitting bottom. I reel up a few turns and put her in the holder. The spin on the herring didn't matter much for me and it caught probably just as many on a 4 inch coyote spoon. It is a pain to net the fish cause the person with the rod is usually standing on the seat but the long leaders worked well for me last year.

We did real well the last few years down by the bridge during an outgoing tide. We would let it carry us out to bouy 10, just in time for the tide change, than you turn the boat around and let the tide rip take you in.

Same set up Delta diver and a fish flash w/3'-4' leader line past the fish flash. We never plug cut our herring. We just use green lable and rig them whole.

If you go out of Hammond the folks and free willy know how to rig up for the troll. So does Linda and Gene @ tackle time. I don't know about the other side of the river.

Downriggers at 60 ft plus in the ocean. Was out there this Sunday and didnt have riggers but marked a lot of fish at 60 plus. Silvers were high and plenty but I suspect the deeper ones were the ones you are after. Cut plugs and big flashers worked pretty well last year. Even hootchies worked deep. At least you know your fishing and they seem to work as well on the kings
