Pretty much a Chum show now on the Big Quil. There was some silvers moving through, but they were small and not aggressive. Had a great time hooking 10-15lb Chums, they went aerial a lot! Started at 6:30-done by noon.

chums have been in since before labor day weekend, ps you are not suppose to target the chum, they are a protected species and if you are caught purposely fishing for them and or taking them out of the water, it can be a really pricy day.

I was definitely not targeting chum. I was fishing a deep hole that just happened to hold some. But thanks for the info, it does not say that anywhere in the regs. I don't think with all the snaggers down there I would have looked mischievous with my manufactured barbless hooks and ten pound line.

I was up there the other day and it was near impossible to avoid the chum... Got 1 silver on bobber and jig after 8 hours of trying.. maybe 20 chum hooked on the same setup.. just too many of them.. will not be goin back there this year because its to hard to avoid the chum.. You gotta love the setup of the trebble hook with the lead wrapped around it that I saw there.. Where are the game wardens when you need them.
