We stayed and putzed around, trying (not very hard) for coho. Landed and released another 5 kings. (Around 10 pounds). And lost another 5. Based on what I saw, A10 is going to be lights out in a couple of weeks.
Wow. What an a-hole. Thanks for the report!Jeff head is heating up. Amazing amount of bait and krill on the surface this morning. got to see the whole food chain. small balls of krill were on the surface even bubbling/ jumping out of the water tiny things, herring were feeding, and salmon splashing and hitting the herring right at the boat. I about got splashed by a salmon when i was leaning over grabbing the downrigger clip as it chased herring arround the boat. Hooked into 3 kings, one 8# hatchery went in cooler. Another 6-7 # fish with a fin sent back and a good 10-12# plus king we had on halfway to the boat up at the surface untill some idiot decided to cruse by at 10mph to find a new place to put his rod in the water right behind our boat as we had a net flying and 3 people waving him down to stop. we were even away from the pack and several hundred yards from the nearest boat. He looked over then continued on and shrugged as he then ran over and drug our fish and line 100 yards and snapped. 🤬 Hope that braid eats up his prop seals🤞.Now there is poor fish swimming around with spoon, flasher and 100' of braid. $50 reward if someone catches and returns it lol. And it was my new favorite flasher☹️. Kids on the boat kept me from loosing my temper. 5 coho kept us busy and rounded out the cooler. Fun morning getting the kids on some fish and nice weather !
Honestly, probably the most effective thing everyone can do is submit a voluntary trip report after every outing. The MSF fishery uses a lot of assumptions and extrapolation… we can DIRECTLY influence the number of estimated encounters through our VTRs… that way they’re not extrapolating out crappy legal to sublegal numbers to every estimated fishing trip.Start writing your poorly elected representative's, the WDFW WTF salmon management folks and the incompetent WDFW commission. Fill their in boxes.
I was listening to the Meateater Podcast and a guy from Washington says he has begun doing that daily on hunting issues. He hates that it's come to that. I'm following his lead.
