Still a few of these big Columbia River Summer Chinook (June Hogs) sneaking down the coast. I picked up this beautiful fish last week 9 miles out front of Westport fishing in 230 fow. This fish had undeveloped milks sacks and was full of fat, a real quality Chinook, not like some boot Tule hanging around the GH that you can smell before they hit the net.

This fish hit the scales at over 30lbs, and is my largest ever ocean caught Chinook, and is 10lbs bigger than the season leading Chinook on the Westport Charter Association leader board.

Now I'm hearing its Tuna Time...does Westport kick ass or what!

Had a pretty good couple weeks for URB,s this summer when they opened it up mid June around Skamokawa on the big C, focused on Tuna now, running trips later next week.
