Fishing Techniques
(Fresh & Saltwater)

Look at this amazing fish! It’s a native springer Chinook that was caught using a drift-fishing technique of mine called “Seam-riding”. This newly created fishing technique garnered the hard hit within two minutes of using it. The gorgeous salmon was running deep enough in the slot of a pool that traditional drift-fishing methods did not inspire it to strike. The reach of water it was holding in was about a hundred yards long with visibility less than three inches due to it being a glacially fed system where turbidity prevails most of the year.
After using other profiles that offered sound, scent, size, and color what got this fish to bite was the ability of my spinner being able to dart in and out of seam at the head of the hold drawing the attention of this salmon with pigment, acoustics, and profile presentations of the lure, which varied dramatically from all the others. The different combination of these four elements was too much for this chrome-bright salmon to pass up…but most fishermen don’t know about these critical constituents that get fish with lock-jaw to bite. That’s what this site and all the information is about; getting reliable fishing data to those anglers who want to be in the know. Each premise of these fishing methods is easy to appreciate without insulting the intelligence of anyone who wants to understand advanced, yet simple, fishing techniques.


37 Fresh & Saltwater Fishing Techniques

Baits and lures can be intermixed with various fishing styles; however, anglers should be constantly aware that baits often fall apart after a few casts or nibbles from smaller species of fish. Care can be taken to ensure that baits last for an optimal amount of time when background research is applied e.g. herring, smelt, shrimp, eggs, worms, and crayfish. While some baits will last longer with each discipline, more than others, it behooves anglers to use this general rule of thought: the harder the cast is the sooner you’re going to lose the bait.

As a side note, take care not to confuse what’s a bait versus what’s a lure. If the lure you’re fishing with offers any kind of natural physical presentation such as scent, fur, hackle, and feather then it becomes a bait, for instance, lures that have scent applied to them become a bait due the olfactory attraction of fish. If ever confused about what is a bait versus what is not then consult a regulation handbook to be crystal clear. In many areas the determination is set locally and supercedes all other regulations.
