The last two times we have been to SE Alaska we trolled strips of herring for pinks and silvers. I have been looking at some of the lures in the catalogs and wondering what most of the people up there use. We are coming up again for a self guided trip the first part of August and hope to catch a few again in 2009. Has anyone had any better luck with the lures or flashers with the E-chip or are they just there to attract fishermen. We have done fairly well with what we used, just always looking to do better.
