We caught two chums out in Lutak inlet yesterday, trying to sneak up with the sockeye. I was excited because I've never caught one before and the second one had the classic gnarly, zombie look to him which is just magnificent. Weird thing is, the other one, we didn't actually realize was a chum for a few minutes. You had to kind of have him at the right angle with sun and shade to see his faint stripes. Aside from that, it looked just like a big sockeye. We caught them in the same spot, but one was so wildly further along his cycle, and both in the salt. Anyone have a preferred recipe for zombie chums like this one?
Note: this is 2 pictures of the same fish. I didn't get a picture of the 'plain' one. Just love the coloring on the chums.
