My Story

I fish every year with my Dad on Veterans Day on a local coastal lake that receives a healthy run of fresh coho salmon. This year the trolling bite was slow so we decided to change it up and cast spinners near the bank. My dad was casting your Orange Flying C spinner with a treble hook and bam, fish on! That day he landed 2 beautiful fish, one of them being a 32" buck. For the rest of the trip we only used the Flying C spinners. On the last day, in the last hour before going home the same thing happened for me. Bam, fish on! I caught the biggest fish of the trip and my personal best, a 33" buck coho. This was the best father and son fishing trip I could have ever asked for. Please also watch my video that shows the lure buried deep in the coho's mouth. Also, I would love to share the more detailed photos I took of the coho and lure. Also, if you wanted to do a story and present both mine and my Dad's photos together I would be pleased to share them. Thank you.
