Very busy two weeks of catching!

The best Chinook season in many years came to a close with lots of limits and outstanding action. The sound is now full of Pinks but we have been focusing on Coho Salmon and releasing the Chinook.

This week we were graced with a pod of transient ORCA!

Sundays high tide seemed to push a large number of Coho into the system! Great action yesterday with most Coho showing off their acrobatic jumping ability!

Tough tides early in the week but today was fantastic!

Tough fishing Wednesday and Thursday but we managed to get a few. Today was much better! 8 Chinook to the boat, several black mouth and an Ocean Coho!

Beautiful weather and a great group of experienced fishermen on board made for a great day!

Amazing week on the sound!

Very busy week with visitors from Hong Kong, Chicago, Colorado, North Carolina, Florida, South Carolina, New Jersey, and more. I love meeting people from all over the world and locals too!

The salmon fishing is the best its been in several years. The Chinook Salmon (King Salmon) seem much larger this year! All trips have caught and released Chinook and Coho (Silvers) and yesterday we netted several Pink Salmon. Todays trip was a group in town for a wedding and we got into the Chinook on the very first drop! The groom caught three kings in a row. It was a very memorable day with perfect weather. Mt Rainier and Mt. Baker were stunning. The weather looks great for the next few weeks.

Chinook retention in Area 10 starts this week. I still have one day open on the 26th if anyone is interested. Several spots the first week of August. Great opportunity to bring home a 12-20+ pound Chinook!

The KINGS are here!

Great week of fishing! Chinooks are cruising the sound and aren’t shy. Fishing with light tackle and mooching is the best! Here’s one caught and released Friday the 12th at 3pm….its not only a morning game.

Chinook catch and keep starts the 25th. I have a few opening that will fill up soon. Call to book a trip or if you have your own boat get out on the water!


Been a busy month...

Been working on my house and helping my parents with their boat repair.…Not a lot of time to post! New roof is on the house which means its time to focus on Salmon Season.

The early season started off slow for the resident silvers but has picked up in recent days. The fish are small but fun and they only get bigger. The migratory fish will build over the month and July looks to be exciting.

Here’s a shot of a snapped shaft and of a blackmouth caught and released Friday.

New Gear for the 2019 Season

Wind Knot Guides has upgraded the Rods and Reels for the upcoming salmon season. These are G Loomis IMX6 and Shimano Tekota Reels. Love the new large handle on the Tekota A’s. Scored a seafoam green YETI cooler and some Costa Del Mar “Slacktide” sunglasses.
