Well, if you wait long enough there may be a couple or three of sockeye coming your way.

How did I know I would get your attention?  I've heard of snagging Sockeye out of Green mountain, but thats not till late September.

Thanks sir!!

 

I dry brined for 6 hours;  water rinsed lightly and then patted dry with towels and air dried for 14 hours;  I smoked with maple, and cherry with a touch of hickory for a total of 17 hours--did two seperate smoke batches.

 

Was an alllll weedend ordeal and so well worth every sleepless minute of it!!

As long as I'm here, I'm gonna bump this Awesome Thread.

 

There has to be a lot of people who haven't seen it, and would like to.

 

As for myself, I keep coming back to gaze at the pictures.

 

Even though all the pics look great, my favorite is the first one !!!

 

 

Thanks Rich,

Bear

Great pictorial to go with those nice fish. We got some on a Lake Ontario charter, but next up is the fall run.  I plan to troll in the 50 - 80 foot of water range here in about two weeks when they start staging, then come late September, early October, we'll be in the Salmon River and Oswego River catching them.



 



Those pictures have me chomping at the bit to get after the fall Kings in Ontario!!! I think the one your wife got is bigger than they get in Ontario.



 



Here are the ones a group of us got on a recent charter (there's one coho in the mix):
