The Buoy 10 Salmon season is one that anglers look forward to all year long. Thousands of crazed anglers from all over the Pacific Northwest pack into the mouth of the Columbia River to cash in on one of the worlds largest Chinook or King Salmon returns. This year we are giving the term "cash in" a monetary meaning!
While our XCC Kenai Kwik series of trolling rods are already the go to choice for guides and casual fishermen alike, we want to give anglers even more of an incentive to use our rods in Astoria this season.
One lucky angler this year will receive $1000 cash from Lamiglas for the longest measured Chinook Salmon caught on a Lamiglas rod within the Buoy 10 boundaries from August 1st to August 24th. The second and third longest fish entered will each win our ever popular XCC1267GH trolling rod.
Entry is free for this exciting tournament, but only submissions from anglers using Lamiglas rods will count!
All photo and video submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
