Silvers from the beach
« on: September 27, 2021, 05:40:51 PM »
We had such a blast with the pink run this season from the beaches both on Whidbey and the "mainland" that I am hoping to follow it up with Cohos - graduate to them silvers. Any tips, advice on gear and the where's and when's (and what-have-youse...) is most welcomed. I am just starting to look into how to approach this fishery. Thanks!

Whole herring under a float.  Wing it out and let it drift along. Retrieve SLOWLY and don't lift that herring out unti it touches gravel. Having a simver bust it in a foot of water 2 feet away is awesome.  Google possession point bait company.

Anyone know if they still operate and sell herring at their stretch of beach?

8-2 (possession point bait company) is closed.  Area 9 closes the 30th.  Maybe Golden Gardens (Area 10) still has some fish.  I hear they are are catching silvers on the Puyallup, drifting corkies on 12 foot leaders  :rolleyes:.

You could try the Snohomish river.

Technique for saltwater beach Coho is usually buzz bombs, rotators, Mackís sonic bait fish (heavy jigs that casts a long ways) Ė let it sink, then a fast retrieve.  Colors are usually greens, blue, purple.

Iíve caught resident silvers off the beaches down by Tacoma narrows.  Caught them with a fly rod and a surface fly. Sooooooo much fun. You donít have to cast a buzz bomb a half mile to catch them.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
