Thread: Homer lagoon silvers

  1. #1

    Default Homer lagoon silvers

    When typically is the peak of silver fishing in the Homer Lagoon/fishing hole?
    Any tips on lures, techniques to use there?
    Last year, we fished there for a few hours amidst the crowd on the incoming tide; was pretty tough. I did get one silver on a Vibrax, but the guy next to me had the system down pat: we were both standing on rocks right where the channel is. On the incoming tide, he had plug-cut herring that was already to fish (had a small plastic container of them pre-cut) and once the incoming current was flowing pretty good, he just tossed that herring in the current and ended up with 3 silvers in about 15 minutes. I was standing not 2 feet away from him trying to get the fish to hit the Vibrax. I think this year I'm gonna be better prepared!
    How about doing the same thing but with a bobber? Just put a chunk of herring on a hook below the bobber and drift in the current? Would have to keep retrieving/casting in that situation compared to just keeping the plug cut bait in the current, letting the current do the work.
    Thanks,
    Jim

    ever done the 'legal snagging hook'? may not be legal now but at the time it was and it hooks fish in the mouth. PM me if you want to know what it is..

    Discussed in depth here...and it is listed as "ILLEGAL" in the regs.

    Just an FYI.
    When all else fails...ask your old-man.

    what time of year was that when you were there? I will be heading up in July next year and will be staying in Homer with a friend and plan on hitting the lagoon a few times.

    bout the snagging hook, im dead honest here, I have NEVER tried it. I was at the hole and the guy next to me was killing the silvers on it, i used eggs and couldn't land a fish to save my life. herring does ok but its mostly a matter of how many fish are in there.
