Plug Bite On Fire

Yakima Bait Pro-Staffer Randy Wells, his son DJ and Capt. Kyle Miller of Fish Seward Alaska Inc. just returned from four days fishing the Situk out of Yakutat Alaska. Randy says the water was low and clear and the weather was nothing short of wet, windy, and cold. Randy took a plug box full of MagLip 2.5, 3.0 and 3.5’s; He says the plug bite was on fire and they landed over 30 steelhead that were over 30in and two over 40in. Randy says that the water was only 4ft most of the time and clear. He was sending the plugs out 60-80ft and just crushed the fish. The darker plugs worked best and the take downs in that low water was beyond exciting.

Randy stated that the Situk is a “do it yourself” type of river with plenty of bank access. However, he rented a drift boat from Glacier Bear Lodge and recommended doing that for the best results . Most anglers were fishing beads and jigs with a few fish a day, but with plugs Randy had double digits almost everyday.
