How to "soak" salmon eggs (Ship Creek)
I live out in the Valley and have always gone fishing in our local rivers when the salmon arrived (no bait allowed), but since I'm working in Anchorage now I want to try Ship Creek. I have been reading that "soaking" salmon eggs is typically most successful there. How do most people do this?:
- On a single hook, or a lure (ex: Spin n/ Glo)?
- What depth are you aiming for?
- Do you want it to drift, or to sit near the bottom?
I'm planning to go tomorrow (Mon) after work right before high tide (4:00 pm), so any advice is appreciated.
Thanks. I went on Friday and watched people to get an idea. Seemed like everyone had something different on the end of their line. Everything from flies, to egg beads, to spin n glos, to flatfish. I didn't see anyone with eggs under a bobber, so I wasn't sure if I'd be the village idiot tomorrow if that's what I tried, haha...
