nice job AP, its great to see some pics, what did you land those on?
Raw visions - Ap didn't land those he is just putting questions upon my picture, " it depends who you ask?", I caught them in lynden using pink dicks nights this morning.  Yesterday was way better fishing, but the next couple of the days should get better.

1/0 or smaller should do it,a open eye Siwash is easy to switch out on most of your spoons and spinners.

Ok, it's time to start shipping handwarmers to hell, as humpy fishing was sufficiently good around Lynden today that even Deli Dill, Grand Poobah of the Nooksack Chapter of the Order of the Skunk, hooked into a bunch of them, and even bonked a couple hens to bring home to the smoker. Saw a handful of limits today and fish were biting in waves throughout the morning on all three sizes of the pink/white DN. One rigging note: Put a dropper of at least a foot on your weight. I started out fishing too close to the bottom and had zero action. Lengthened the drop and bam, fish on.

BTW, I dunno if I've shared this here but my theory on pinks is that they only run in odd years so you have a year in between to forget how slimy they are. Cheers.

Hit the nooksack this morning near lynden ( frog pond) with my buddy and my son , we managed to get 9 pink salmon before we had to leave, date included in fish picture to authenticate this fishing report. Tight lines and keep them pink salmon coming!!!

Bigdog: You'll probably have better success drift fishing. Rig up a drift rig like the one depicted under "Articles" on this site, except (important) use a dropper line of at least a foot or so to connect your sinker, to keep your spoon off the bottom as it drifts. Use just enough weight to bounce along the bottom, not sit there. Fish a Dick Nite or other small pink spoon of your choice off of 3-4 feet of leader on that rig. Other people catch them with spinners and jigs, and of course, what you use and what size depends a lot on water clarity and flow.  Hope that is useful.

Thank you Steemer. Deli Dill is secure enough in his fish-sculinity to tell people to just take his word for it. (Plus, he has posted enough skunk reports on here that it would be pointless to start lying now.) Well, that and the fact that the pic he took of three humpies reading the front page of today's Bellingham Herald didn't turn out.
