    Default The fish that will haunt me

    I went to the Eklutna Tail race today, and after losing two fish, and fishing for hours. Me and my buddy finally figured out what they were hitting on. Once we figured it out we were getting hit about 15 seconds after casting our line in the water, on almost every cast. I hooked into something that was fighting really hard but hit like a silver. I fought him for about 45 seconds when he got off. I really wish I could have seen if it was a king or a silver, maybe a chum....Now I am going to lose a lot of sleep over this.....stupid fish.

    I'm sure you were getting some silver bites mixed in with the dollies that are in there. There's alot of bait stealing dollies that make it hard to set your pole down, but the silvers don't really bite any harder. Bring lots of eggs and set up hard every time. That's my motto.
