Took a buddy out after he helped on a house project. Paid out in full with an A10 unicorn, 36” long and 17.5# cleaned/gilled. So guessing even 20#, this made up for us tossing back some small 5-6-7 #’s on the opener and thus coming home empty handed.

Continuing with the >20# photo rule:

Nice fish!!

Was 2001 and I netted a 21# silver. Fishing partners that day wanted to shake off the “king” but I insisted on checking it…. Was a remarkable fish

The visible top on that downrigger rod holder is in the WORST spot!

great fish. Keep the 20+ pics coming.
Ha, had the exact same "double take" before realizing what I was seeing. That fish is a beaut, nice job and I bet your buddy was amped!

Are you getting that in the regs or in another source? In the regs I'm seeing:
Aug. 6-Aug. 9 (12:00 p.m.)

And interpreting that as "August 6th through August 9th @ 12:00PM". Also not seeing any prohibition on keeping two wilds.... but sincerely curious to here where you're getting your info b/c I've misread the regs before. And may have missed an emergency rule change. School me....

Sorry, I see where I was not clear—yes 2 Kings clipped or wild. But not good if you fish am is my point. I can’t fish pm hours unfortunately. Back in the day EB was always a great fishery…city in the background,trolling along the piers, etc. Old Seattle that is long gone…if you go I hope you slam them!

Folks, it's open all day starting August 6th, and then closes at noon on August 9th.
