There's a lot of these creeks that dump in and these are all great fishing spots for salmon look at all this for the big red ones are silvers the red ones are silvers the gray ones are pinks they call them pinks because their meat is pink not because their skin is pink the ones that turn pink have red or.

There's one right there oh there's a bunch right there i mean they're only in 10 inches of water i mean you don't need to cast out far deep to get into fish this is gonna be awesome all right we've been here five minutes and nathan's socks are already wet.
That's pretty standard fired all right you guys having fun yeah number one bait for salmon salmon eggs they love to eat their own eggs it's got like a number two hook with i've tied an egg loop knot this little retractable reusable loop go and.
We're gonna hook this on put it around there pull it tight there we go got my rod sitting here in a fork stick and i've got another stick right here in front of the reel to keep a fish from stealing my rod hits already do this hold it hold it he's taking line.
Look at that toss how's that there you go well there we go that was about an 18-inch rainbow trout man that was pretty nice drink it jerk it drink it hold on this is a wonderful truck oh there he goes he popped off.
Yay all right just to mix it up i've got some eggs underneath the float no lead slightly bigger hooks so we might miss some of those trout we're gonna check that out there and see what happens yeah he's pulling some drag oh nathan nathan that's a monster.
Keep that run up keep it right over the air buddy don't let him pull your rod down there you go oh keep that up that's a silver buddy that's not a big rainbow look at that oh look at him look at the mark he's got on him that's like where a seal bit him.
Did you find the big rock if you can't find a rock daddy's got this there we go that is a lovely silver look at this oh it's another beautiful silver he devoured that oh my goodness it is on fire we have gotten two silvers in five minutes i need to get myself a stringer to keep.

Here walk over here walk to shore walk to shore oh walk to shore okay don't reel anymore just walk keep pulling pulling along the shore pull up on the shore there we go buddy you're you're first silver well the boys are saying they're hungry.
As they should be it's a little past lunch time and i put the rod in the rod holder with some bells and uh we're gonna get them some snacks i've got soft lemon cookies and cherry strudels and we are having a very unhealthy but delicious lunch got one buddy.
oh i think you might have a dolly here oh we got an oh look at that dolly that is a beauty that that is a beautiful dollyvarden it's a member of the char family those dots hold them up they have so teeth okay you pick him up.
Oh that's the tops of my boots well all three of the nickels boys have gone over the tops of their boots so there's no help in it we're all wet so we're gonna wait out here a little bit further and see if i can't reach that far bank there's a bit of a shadow forming that's usually a good place to hit.
Oh that's a perfect one look at that here holy what a beautiful trout oh you got him buddy you got him keep that rod up keep the rod up in the air oh oh that's a big one i can see him he's gorgeous oh look at him fight oh he was crazy hey walk him all the way up hold him.
Right up pull him right up high five that was a heck of a fight nate another beautiful dying bright silver is look at this this is just amazing what a wonderful place to fish let alone.
Camp huh we got a heck of a night ahead of us jerk it hard jerking hard what you got there oh now he's a beautiful trout yeah he's a rainbow yeah he's kind of great he's awesome nathan what you got.
Oh nice dolly nathan's tearing him up he's got two dollies and a bunch of trout he popped off right at the shore and i had to use some old football techniques well guys i'm gonna be eating barbecued fresh salmon with corn on the cob but my.
Boys are a bit more particular so nathan's got his favorite cup of noodle and tommy asked for steak so we got a little bit of everything for everyone dancers so now fresh alaskan salmon is one of those.
Fish it's hard to screw up hands down my favorite recipe is melted butter and brown sugar smothered all over a filet and grilled oh so good there you go a slab of fresh grilled salmon and corn on the cob man oh that was so good.
I ate that entire fillet by myself i'll tell you what guys i am absolutely having a ball if you're thinking of coming to alaska and you're on a budget the phantom river charter drop-off service should be number one on your list of things to do it's probably the best deal around for catching a salmon and if you're not.
Confident enough to do this on your own what i would recommend is go with their charter service their normal guided trips at the beginning of your trip figure out what's going on get some confidence figure out what gear to use what rigs to use and then come out here and do this on your own at the end of your trip.
Kids settle down to bed all right guys lay down and go to sleep the boys are to bed it's gotten dark and so i started fishing again and really wasn't getting any action so i just wandered down the bank a little bit and i don't know if you can see this but there are just tons of fish just.
Piled up right up close to shore so i i think that's the key i just need to go downstream a little bit there we go nice almost every single silver we're catching has scars from either gill nets or seals or orcas or something.
These fish everything tries to kill them well there we go folks we have officially limited out on silver salmon i just might do a little catch and release fishing there's another one in like five minutes there we go that's another gorgeous dolly garden.
I don't know how this day could have turned out any better but uh i'm gonna go catch some sleep and i will see you guys in the morning oh well good morning i think i'm gonna do a little fishing so this right here is a pink salmon and.
There are thousands of them right in there okay all right hit my first peak there you go i switched to lures to try to catch some pinks and there you go i caught one but it's hard not to snag them i mean there are literally thousands of them right here in front of me i don't know if you can.
See this but there's easily five 600 salmon in front of me just piled up in crystal clear water all right this is why they call them humpies the males get the big hump on the back and there's just thousands of them there we go another pink these pinks are just in here thick i'm.
Getting hit almost every cast but i should get the fire going and get breakfast made so the boys have something warm to wake up to good morning dad yeah you got we got a little sun on the old back waking up to bacon egg sandwiches um you know i packed a clean shirt and i.
Could have swore i packed a clean pair of pants but apparently i didn't so i'm wearing my uh thermals i think it's a good look for me all right our boat's here let's get loaded up we put our bobber out bam bam bam got three as soon as we as soon as we.
