Went south today and found a small pile of boats off Willapa at 280’. Too snotty for us to be productive and called the day short. Less then 10 trailers in parking lot today

Went a long ways north today, got 28 seabass, didn’t try salmon and fog was horrible so couldn’t find birds or bait. We left late though, after getting limits of steamers onshore

OK, here it is. Monday, foggy, windy, snotty. Plowed SW out to 200fow; stopped short of 300fow (where they were a couple days before) because of a good report & epic bait/fish on the screen (for miles!). Trolled with the wind; made several passes with absolutely nothing through noon (can Patrick still catch fish?!)...after noon & the beginning of the flood things started to pick up & a good bite started around 1pm. By 4pm we had 4 nice chinook & 4 very nice coho (even though I don't think highly of coho!). Interesting they were chewing on the mini squids days before & we couldn't get a sniff on that; once we changed to spoons, game on. Best chinook action at 100ft...coho on surface (herring). All fish STUFFED with krill & green label herring. Bait & fish marks again epic all day.

Day two Tuesday, much calmer & much less wind....fog disappears at 100fow or so & it's smooth sailing SW again. At 180fow we run into commies & charters & whales & birds & down we go...great king bite for about 2 hours & we get 3 fatties on the deck (biggest 23 gutted). Kings are so stuffed with krill hard to imagine them still eating. Coho come on the bite after king bite faded at 9 & we put on 4 nice fat coho (one over 10lbs). Got a smaller tule to get our king limit & day done at 11am....two days, two completely different scenarios. Skinny g's again were the ticket & all the chinook came at 60ft.

Shout out as always to Patrick...fun music playing, he's always working hard to get us on fish, uses a ton of ice to immediately clean/gut/ice the catch (mandatory in my book!). And then full service fillet/bag back at the dock. Highly recommend!

The strain of hatchery kings out there seems fat, happy & strong! Krill fed ocean chinook...not sure it gets any better than that. Fish on!
