Gonna keep it short, cause it’s past my nap time and I still gotta clean the boat out. Caught this morning on the incoming tide. Didn’t measure or weigh, I’m guessing 12-15 range. Dime bright and fat.

Damn, that seems to be the consensus. These fish are starving down here. The tides are not too bad, just no feed. Yep, we're screwed....shorelines of stone. Can't get the feed going, everyone needs their perfect waterfront beaches.


Please watch....

Don’t mind at all. I remember years ago when I would go fishing with my dad in area 11 as a kid we would catch fish and they would be absolutely stuffed. Not so much anymore it seems.

I'm pretty new to the fishery, but: I figured that all the ocean chinook had empty tummies because once they're this far into the sound (MA10 & lower), their brains have switched from food to other things, and they're eating spoons because we manage to drag one in front of their faces?

here's my king from the clay banks Saturday, I've never seen as many herring as I did that morning, there was a rip halfway between the point and gig harbor that was a mile long and 100 feet deep and wide with herring.
