I might doing a trip to the Queen Charlotte Islands for 2 weeks at the end of May/beginning June. I was told by someone that fishes the area that he just looks for the fish crashing the bait right out of the water (off the beaches) and thats when he knows the fish are around. He told me is a whole scene where the birds get in on it as well. If he does not see this, he does not blind-cast. During that time, its all saltwater beach fishing.
He said he was successful from shore with jigs, like the stingsilda (I attached a pic).
Anyways, I was just curious to know if any of you guys have ever encountered such a frenzy where the cohos or Kings were crashing bait in the saltwater?
It might be more common in the SE. QCI is only about 100some miles south.
What do you guys in the SE use in the salt from shore?
Ive also attached a picture of the bait and was wondering if you guys thought this lure may work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmMYk9UNzBk
Kind of a weird thread with some odd questions. Discuss.
