Time of Day
King Salmon adults bite early dawn and late evening, not necessarily so for Blackmouth as lots of the best bites occur in the middle of the day. Tides and currents play a very important role in concentrating the bait fish and making for good Blackmouth Salmon fishing.

I like Plugs when they will catch the Blackmouth.
Plugs work best when fished in and around lots of bait fish.
Flasher and Spoons are very productive for these fish
Spoons can be fished by them self or behind a flasher or dodger.
Best Luck is fishing them 38 inches behind an 11 inch flasher.
Gold Star king fishers are good producers.
Many colors will work, but some green in them has been best.
