    Ive been spending a fair amount of time standing waist deep in the water before work and I've been doing pretty good. Point No Point has been producing some decent fish just after first light. last Friday I walked away with 2 Pinks, Saturday got me a decent sized hatchery silver. Plenty of native silvers that have to go back but still fun to catch. Haven't seen many kings landed but heard they're catching them in the evening. Brined herring is the sure fire way but throwing Brad's and hard baits have been getting bites too. IMG_2231.JPG

    funny thing is I do have a boat, 2 of them actually. Its just easier to get up a bit earlier for work, sneak over to either the point or to salisbury and toss herring or lead for a couple of hours. Went out this morning in the fog, caught 2 unclipped silvers before 7am. Always bitter sweet landing a native.

    Might try an army truck buzz bomb in 3xh. With a single siwash hook, of course. Caught many fish from a beach near sekiu with one.

    Looks like a good way to extend what season we have in A9. After kings it changes to a shore fishery.

    Lots of small to medium silvers along the beaches in A-10. Been making up for the lack of kings by employing the bug rod with good success. They have been hard charging on small herring in shallow water, actually saw a nice silver marooned on the beach by a tanker wake the other morning, he had to wait for the next wake to wash him back off!

    Its not bad during the week in the morning. I usually get there by 5am. that still gets ya a good spot. Mornings a chill and quiet. The folks out there all play well together so its not combat fishing.

    Try it with tandem octopus tied about 1" apart. Slide a pink mini hootchie over the top hook for the pinks, then run whatever color the coho like for the lure. Zak Attacks over Buzz Bombs.

    In my 20 years of beach fishing I have done my share of wading. But at No Point, with due respect, wading out waist deep makes no sense unless you are soft tossing cut plug herring or whipping flies and can't reach the dropoff. I'm a jig guy, and with a 9 or 10' rod I can cast way out there. It's best not to even put a toe in the water. The fish will follow your lure right up the water's edge, and all you accomplish by wading out is to scare them from striking. I do all I can to avoid the stinky pink rats, but have hooked and landed many silvers into the teens, and my share of kings to about 25#... like this chromer about 18# from ten years ago. 10398503_61899511705_4372806_n.jpg

    And if I had waded out waist deep I would not have ever hooked this 10# fat ocean-run silver, which charged in and hit my jig just a few feet from the water's edge. This one gave me an awesome fight, made a bunch of runs and went airborne about a dozen times before I played it out and was able to beach it.

    Agreed with the above. Wading deep is a big mistake on almost all beaches IMO.

    Throwing flies off the beach is my absolute favorite thing to do.

    Awesome. Do you have any numbers. What was your average speed over ground. What's your fuel burn How was the water 3 foot swells with 2 foot wind waves. How was the bar crossing
    What did they charge you to launch and park. Good job

    Totally agree about not wading in as I have had many fish strike right at the surf when fishing off the beach. I have been fishing the same beach off Camano for 40 years and have a lot of great memories fishing there. The simplicity of it is a major draw for me. Not much in the way of tackle is needed and you never know what you will catch. I even landed a large skate once. Another time I was cutplugging for dollies and hooked and landed a 23 pound chinook. Way to get after it men!

    Everyone has their way of doing it. It depends on tides, crowd and water conditions. Each has its effect on how I fish the Point. If I'm cutting plugging you're damn right I'm in the water, its the only way to get the bait into the rip. If I'm hurling lead then I can stand further off the water. Strong out going tide you can float a cut plug from the east facing shore right over the drop off. Incoming tide, they like to hold up in the small eddy that forms in front of the light house. Got to have more than 1 tool in the tool box.
