The Northwest Coast’s main food source was salmon, thanks to the Pacific Ocean they had plentiful amounts of it. Fishing was usually done in the summer, and stored for the winter, but they were able to fish all year long. Although they did eat and catch other aquatic animals, including whales, salmon was the easiest to catch and the most convenient to store for long periods of time. The Pacific Ocean supplied the tribes with fish, crab, seaweed, whales, mussels, some sea mammals, and fish oil. The people had many methods of catching the fish, the most drastic one was by using harpoons. In order to do this, they had to stab the fish while in a canoe and put the fish in the storage section. This proved to be more useful when catching larger fish such as swordfish, or blue tuna. The most effective method of catching salmon was by using large nets shaped like a V to catch hundreds of fish at a time. This was very useful because one thousand fish could easily feed a family for a whole year. Another way fish were caught was by using traps, most commonly a weir was used. A weir is a structure built in the water typically out of either wooden poles or stone, and is used for catching the fish as they swim in the current. The fishers would use hooks made out of bone and wood to catch fish as well. This was very helpful because they were able to catch whatever size fish they would like. The bigger
Many people are of the belief that fishermen of bass are just as good as the lures he uses. While this is partly true for some situations, in real life, having an excellent lure for bass fishing a waste if one doesn't know how to put it to use. Say, its like a nuclear energy, used for the wrong purpose. People need to know where to use which bait, to catch the right stuff.
Use the proper gear. Try to use a medium - medium/heavy pole. You want a pole with good backbone to pull the bass out of cover, but not so lightweight that you set the hook or land the bass once you have got the strike. Try to use a reel with at least 3 ball bearings. You do not have to spend a fortune for good tackle ,but remember if you go too cheap on your tackle, you will lose fish.

These two types are live bait, and artificial bait. There are pros and cons to each that I will talk about. First I will talk about artificial bait. I like using artificial bait for many reasons. One of the main reasons I like using artificial bait (lures) is the amount of water that you can cover. I believe that the more water you can cover the more fish you can catch. Lures are made to attract fish. Lures can be built to make noise, create reflections or just imitate the movements of a bass’s natural prey. There are also different types of lures. These are topwater, mid- depth and deep water lures. The other way to catch bass is with live bait. To catch bass with live bait you will need a 3/0 sized hook, and minnows, frogs, crawfish or worms you can by most of these at the store. You will also need one or two split shot weights and cork bobber. The weights will keep the bait in the water and the bobber will tell me when I get a bite. I like using live bait because it is exactly what the bass would eat in the

It moves quickly through the water so can impersonate a small fish darting through the water.

Some may choose to go to a grocery store and pay for the things that are processed, rather than going and getting the freshest, free version of the same thing, in their own backyard. In cases like these, those who choose this method are not keeping any animals alive by doing so. They have to be killed first to get to the grocery store anyways. Even with that being said, many would see killing an animal to use as food as the cruelest thing a
