    Where is the hotspot for Silvers and Humpies in Area 10 & 11

    Picked up a nice pink at 60 feet in 540 feet of water between Maury Isl and Fed Way, on a little trolled spinner. No silvers in south MA11~~~are they just late? Dock fishers in Tramp Harbor are getting about 1/day, usually on the PM high tide, herring below a bobber.

    The seals key on a waving net, and the clicker on your reel. Turn that clicker off, stay seated while netting. Even then it may just follow your boat. Slingshots help keep them away.

    Crab Poachers MA-9

    I've had good results with soak time of 1 hour---but that's with a lot of oily bait and added "crab nectar". Get at keast 10# of weight in your pot, and add a big buoy to the red/white one, for good measure on big tide swings. 100 ft is minimum for the bigger males// YMMV

    First fish in the "new " Coho Special this AM, 57feet down in the Colvos Passage. Been very slow in MA11 this year, I'm almost ashamed to turn in my catch record. This guy fought like a much bigger fish, look at the tail and see why!!

    White Lightning CK on the west side of VAshon, green or purple haze hoochie on the east side, with mini-b2 a second favorite, 90=105 feet of wire out in 120 feet of water. Limited success in Colvos, fish on the small side---10 to 16#..the rain should make changes, hopefully bring the coho down.

    Not So Worthwhile Bay Blackmouth

    Duly noted, thanks. I got plenty of the Q-coves, too---great colors, wish they made one like the Gibbs Red Racer Moonglow UV: Gibbs now has a quick release flasher---the "Farr Better"--- that uses a little ball and chain gizmo. Doesn't look as good as Ken's quick release pin system.

    Converting Conventional Flasher to Breakaway

    John---I did catch one on a converted flasher, gotta post a pic:--the hooknose coho was caught early this month, with that ratty-looking plaid UV OKI flasher and white Coho Killer.
  286. kallitype

    Not So Worthwhile Bay Blackmouth

    Well, that's your opinion--you can flush it. Nobody's getting ripped off--I paid good money for those OKI and Hot Spot flashers. I have bought 7 of the Q-Coves, as well as 3 extra pin assemblies. If Q-cove is the only one making a flasher color---as I stated in the how-to---I got no problem...

    Converting Conventional Flasher to Breakaway

    The Breakaway flasher is a really effective solution to the leverage the conventional flasher gives the fish to throw the hook. The flasher is released when a decent size fish hits, the flasher pulls away from the lure and floats up the line---it is still captive to the line, but does not offer...

    Not So Worthwhile Bay Blackmouth

    Joel and I developed "Ter's flasher"---basically cut a slot in the bottom, taking out the rivet and swivel, then superglue in a spacer ring that will take the pin. I have a photo essay over on Captain Downriggin's site, I;ll copy it here. Costs about $3 for the pin assembly from Qcove, and 30...

    Knot Wars

    Thnks Dave ----I have switched form the "eye-crosser" (twice thru the eye with a 3 turn Uni) to the Spangler, as the Spangler consistently beats both the Trilene knot , improved clinch, and eye-crosser when tested head-to head . I tie the spangler to a 100# barrel swivel with an 18inch piece of...

    Field and Stream tip

    Some people have more of the amino acid L-Serine in their fingerprint residue, this is a potent repellent for salmonids, including trout. Wash your hands with Joy before tying up gear, not only gets rid of the serine (for awhile) but is fish-attracting by itself, as is garlic.

    3 downriggers no tangle

    It help to have a wide beam (the boat, not yours) and long arms on the 'riggers. Instead of running your gear back from the weight 20-25 feet, run it 6-8 feet. At that short distance, an 8 inch flasher might work better than an 11incher.

    Around Point Defiance, a noisy clicker calls in the seals to steal your salmon, kinda like a dinner bell. Savvy anglers do not use a clicker in Puget Sound. Damn sea lions also catching on.
