Here is a sample of what's been happening on the fishing grounds so far this summer!
Off shore salmon fishing remains excellent. There are lots of springs around 6 mile and 12 mile. The bigger fish have been at the 6 mile reef. The 12 mile fish are on the bite all day, where as the 6 mile fish can be a little more tide sensitive. Fishing the flood and slack times on 6 mile will produce these bigger fish. Glow green/silver and glow purple/silver flashers have been working well. Hoochies and spoons are both working. I have been fishing a 6 inch g-force no bananas spoon witrh a dummie flasher on one side with good success. UV white terds, gator back hoochies and silver blue coyotes have all been catching.
Lots of big Coho have shown up on the outside waters as well. Some days almost half of them are hatchery clipped fish allowing us to harvest them. On the inside waters you may retain wild or hatchery. We have had fish up to 12 pounds on the dock with larger wild ones being released.
Halibut fishing has slowed down a bit. We are still limiting out all guests, but having to put our time in. I released another fish 3 days ago around 120lbs, and was able to harvest 3 fish in the 40-60 pound range. Salmon bellies and mackeral have been top baits.
We have 6 spots available August 17-19th. At this time the tuna should be within our reach. If this is something you are considering, give me a call to get in on this non stop action. I am offering a 10% discount on these spots.
