In the rivers yet? Any good on the beaches?
Watch the Saltwater forum for updates on the beaches.
so far we have been slow in area 11. going to fish it again on Sun. no one has said much, just they are coming. will see. tight lines.
heard that there is a possibility of showers saturday and sunday. maybe that will draw some into the rivers?
meanwhile im going to hit the beach next week with my new setup (early birthday present):
Sage response 697-4
Hardy Ultralite DD 7000 reel
Rio Outbound Short WF6I
and a whole bunch of pink turds
Most rivers are still closed for them. I've been on the MA11 beaches several days in the last week. It's very hit and miss for me, with 30+ hookups one day, then 3 the next. This morning was slow with just being 3 hooked and one landed. Probably the slowest day for me yet.
cuttbow, yep, pink turds are the way to go. glad to hear your using em. sounds like a nice setup ya got there. Happy Birthday when it comes. now go get em. tight lines.
I find Evan's way of determining if fish are around rather refreshing........
I just got back from fishing up around oak harbor putting time in on the boat with my uncle. I saw one fish landed in 19 hours on a boat over the last week. There are a few getting caught up at deception pass but not the numbers we are all looking for.
Yeah, asking how the fishing was yesterday doesn't help a whole lot. I've gone out every day I can, and caught fish every time. Have a lot of coho filets and smoked humpies as a reward.
Oh for christ's sake. The freakin' Skagit is freakin' plum full of the damn vermin. I wondered down to the Gardner boat launch the other day and watch about a half dozen landed in 20 minutes. Went over to Mt. Vernon and watch from the reventment and seen another dozen or so caught while drinking my latte'. Go freakin clog up the rivers with your boats and your gear, take someone fishing that has never caught a salmon and have some fun. The freakin' pinks are everywhere.
I'm going to hit the Narrows after work will let you know if I see any or better yet hookup with some.
I have a friend who lives on the canal just up from Hoodsport. She said she has been seeing some there rolling through and the guys (tribe I assume) now have nets out in the water by her place.
Tickets have been issued to people fishing pinks in the Stilly. It doesn't open for salmon until Sept 1st.
From a MA11 beach last th fri and sat mornings there was no whooping and hollering heard coming from a nearby pier.
Few schools passed through.
When they did, fish were caught by a few anglers on the beaches.
Like that outfit. However, in looking at my crystal ball I see a WF7 line in your futue...
You are more than welcome on gardner bar just bring your own rock, the rocks that are there are all spoken for!!! TIP OF THE DAY--- use a pink wing bobber & shrimp
