Why do people prefer Coho for the smoker?

Recommended Posts

Related question: if I want to target cohos instead of kings, how would my presentation vary in terms of depth, lures, speed, etc.?

i like them because they are smaller and not so thick..... thick 25 30 lb salmon is like a burnt raw tire in the smoker because it just sucks up the smoke like a sponge

Fish summer Coho similar to Steelhead with orange, reds and blue colored baits.  Slightly higher in the column than Kings, but slightly lower than Steelhead.  Around the thermocline is a good start.  They like flashers.  Often are more offshore than Kings.  If you can find an offshore area of cool temps and YOY alewives you will find them in big numbers otherwise they are mostly incidental catches.  Spring is time to really target them......they are voracious, seek warmer inshore water,  and easy to catch.
