    We ran out at 0700 towards 15/15 only to find clearer and clearer water offshore. We turned around at 15/11 and put in on some marks at 15/9. Immediately we put in a 12 and an 18lber within a half hour of lines in the water on a watermelon coyote spoon 50otw. The bite died and a few hours later we moved inshore in search of browner water where found some and boxed a fish on a hoochie at 16/6. We metered some lines and worked the area for a few hours. We had a number of salmon jump around us to keep our hopes up, yet had nothing else until we left at 130. Sounded like most boats had 0-3, with the higher numbers getting in on the early bite at 15/9.

    it was gorgeous today...some points there was zero wind. It bumped up to 10-13 in the afternoon but it was still as nice as it gets for May!

    We stayed out til 4 and fished that 15-6 area with the fleet and it was flat calm like a lake out there...awesome. 20lber and a couple shakers, overall tough bite but awesome flat day on the ocean.

    Karl,

    We we out there too. Two shakers and a healthy 18lb'er found at 15 and 11. Soaked 6 pots for thirty dungeness crab and a half dozen rock crab. On the water at sun up and off at 6:00pm. Long day with three bites total. Looking forward to a better bite but couldn't ask for nicer weather.


    Nice going on a tough bite.

    Nice job getting some in the box. Did you mark much bait in that area?

    We found the biggest spot of krill I've ever seen around 16/9 with nice dirty water, two huge whales (blue or grey) about 80 ft long working the krill. Schools of krill the size of football fields the water was red. Tons of bait if you found the right spot, other areas had scarce bait. Wonder if we only got 3 fish because they are all choked with krill? They don't wanna eat!

    I heard that area was loaded as well. I'm surprised more fish wernt caught there. I saw way less bait today compared to the past 2 times I've been out. Last few trips the krill lines I found lasted for miles, but very few fish. I feel like I have less success on lines than I do on on the small pads. I also saw a good amoint of balls of some sort of fin bait inshore along the 6 line, most likely herring since the last fish we caught had a fresh herring in its stomach. That could be a good sign because I really didn't see balls of fin bait last year...it was all krill and squid.

    Karl, good work on the salmon, it seems to be drying up a little down here, but it seems the water is warming up, and what's up with the rumor of some albies caught off pt. sur? Early season coming? you've got to make it down and do a little exploratory with my bro and I.
