Heard a good report from 7/11 evening bite at 46 52 x 124 17. Started there with 1 wild and lost one. Pretty slow. The ocean was as flat as it gets so we made the 30 mile run to 47 17 in 270 FOW with a small fleet of private and charter boats. Not much better. We never had a bite but did hear reports of a random fish. In no way worth the fuel. On our way north at 25 mph we hit a 6'+ blue shark, I thought it must have been a log or crab pot but when we went back to look there was an unhappy blue wrapped up in the motors. No damage but a pretty good pucker factor for a minute or so. Just one short rant, I am getting tired of slow fishing and I can't help get the feeling that the agency in charge of WA fishing is some what to blame. The only thing worse than slow fishing is not being able to keep the one fish of the day for dinner due to a fin that is far more likely a tribal fish or missed clip hatchery fish. If all the fish with fins out there were wild they wouldn't be endangered. It would be nice to accept applications for new management due to poor past performance. If that seems like a reasonable rant its because I edited it to avoid ending up on more suspected terrorist watch list. Regardless of fishing success rates I will be out there, always an adventure and what a cool place.
