Kyuquot Underwater Salmon Striking Video

Hooks Removed

Hello fellow fish fans,

  • Its an amazing few minutes of underwater footage of both Chinook and Coho Salmon Striking at a hootchie being trolled behind a flasher.
  • Fishing between 30-50 feet using a modified Troll Pro harness with a GoPro inside.
  • The hooks have been removed to allow for multiple takes and re takes..
  • How many bites do you see happen in three minutes?
  • Look closely at the 1:13 mark, there is a monster Chinook that does a ghostly cruise by from right left corner and away down the center, hard to see. You can just see its fins and tail, along ways apart. Ghost Salmon!
Hooks are on:

  • In this video a different lure is used. We experiment with a number of configurations to study their effectivenes
  • What is amazing in this video is how many fish continue to follow the downrigger ball once the gear is hooked up with another fish.
  • A long standing practice of our guides has been to leave the ball where it is at and adjust the other downrigger to its same depth. We often get multiple hook ups this way.  This video validates our theory that the school of fish continue to follow the cannon ball!
