I will be fishing Juneau 29 July-7 August 2011. I'm really interested in catching some chum/dog salmon. Last summer, I saw them by the thousands... hundreds of thousands at amalga bay on the right side of the dock and on the back side of the peninsula to the right of the dock. Even made my way around to the waterfall on the right. Couldn't get the chum to even look at my baits. Tried Flying C, pink spoons, silver spoons, rooster tails, meps, and every bait I brought from the lower 48.
I do know that the treble hook unbaited works-lol-cause I saw tons of locals using it at DIPAC. Like I've written before-I'm not a snagger and I'm not going to start. Would love any advice on the chum. I keep reading about how tuff they fight and I really want to find out for sure. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you don't want to broadcast your mojo secrets. Really would love to hear the advice!!
