went to minter creek with my dad and brother during high tide. so many cohos you could walk across the river over them! we brought out bass rods spooled with 8lb test (I know, a bit light for coho) I was using a mag lip UV pink and purple, brother was using blue fox vibrax spinners firetiger and fad was using original floating rapala hot steel we snagged a few times but released them (can't keep snagged fish) diddnt catch any in the mouth though but still had a blast until dad fell in the river! he was okay I pulled him out. drove home in his undies!
