NW Salmon Trolling

BY SPECIES
Northwest and Great Lakes salmon trolling can have some dramatic differences. Most often in the Northwest, salmon fishing is one rod per angler. In the Great Lakes it can be as many as three rods per angler. Downriggers are a far larger component of the Great Lakes fishery than in the Northwest. For this Northwest selection, we focus on herring rods for the bays, estuaries and large river fisheries.
Convector
Convector levelwinds and line counters revolutionized the fishing tackle industry, offering a powerful gearing and drag system platform previously unattainable at the Convector\'s value-oriented price. Today, the Convector has grown to a position as a staple in salmon fisheries from Alaska to the Great Lakes, and as the “go-to” reel for Striper and bottom fishing anglers. The Convector\'s no-nonsense design features durable brass main and pinion gears, stainless steel reinforcing side plate rings, and Okuma\'s patented Mechanical Stabilization System that maintains parts alignment over the long term. Line counter models are available in both right and left hand retrieve to serve all anglers.
