And another this morning. I went fish-drunk, broke the net on the first attempt when it got snagged on the downrigger (I usually move them out of the way but we had no idea it was a good fish till it was at the boat - odd fight), then had to hold the hoop in my hand while on my knees to scoop this one up. We had no business getting this fish in the boat - damn thing got wrapped around everything it could twice. Here here to 5/0 double gamas on a hoochie. It was pinned as well as fishably possible. Second pic's the MacGuyver fix.

Nice fish! I was out today and caught a lot of fish (dogfish, dabs, rock fish, a true cod) but no Chinook. Checker at shilshole said it was a slow day so doubly impressive you got one two days in a row!

I think the lesson that we should take is that to catch a fish in A10, we all need to fuck up the netting...

    I was out today and caught and released one black mouth. Very little bait on the sounder and I tried lots of combinations of flasher and lures/hoochies /hi flys, to no avail.
