This guide is a comprehensive book on fishing for salmon and albacore tuna from Washington to California. Trolling tactics, mooching methods, and jigging approaches are covered from A to Z, including terminal tackle, imparted action, what works for each species and more. Chiok, chum, coho, pink, and sockeye salmon are all fair game, and author Bob Mottram covers it all, up and down the shore, as well as the burgeoning, red-hot albacore tuna fishery. Mottram also covers boats, motors, and the vast field of fishing electronics to help you get into the gear you want and need. Recent reports indicate that fish numbers are well above what they've been in the past, and well above expert's forecasts - some of the best numbers since the 1930s. Now is the best time to track down and land the salmon of a lifetime.
