Lure / Bait used: Lure | UV Glow Back Mini Brad's Super Bait Cut Plug


August 9th, 2011 Sekiu, Washington - After fishing several different baits, we used a Super Bait Brad's Mini Cut Plug (UV Glow Back), in 469 feet of water and running 35 feet down with a green and silver e-chip flasher.

After catching at least twenty five native fish (Chinook and Coho), finally landed a 14 pound hatchery Coho, the largest hatchery Coho salmon that the Washington Department of Fish and Game had seen all year so far. The largest Silver Salmon I have ever taken came in on a Brad's Super Bait Cut Plug - Will never go back to using natural bait again.

Thanks to my boyfriend and Captain, it is a trip that I will never forget and the pictures will last forever - as the salmon will not - on the grill tonight! All I have to say is "thanks" to Brad and his team, the best bait ever.
