Whether sailing or motoring, your displacement hull pushes a lot of water and much of it is piled into a mound behind the boat. That is the wake. That wake follows us whether we tow our dinghy, or...

However, I would encourage you to check out the site. For generic Ericson issues, it's a great resource. I just wish there were more 34-T materials.

It depends on when you're there, but when the salmon are running, you can't miss them. Some days you'll get nothing, some days you'll limit out.
