Sunny skies and calm seas greeted us today as the fog dissipated and the fish arrived on schedule. What a great opening day, a lot of smiling faces and happy guides.
I managed to fish all day with no boat company, in flat seas finding Chinook 19 to 25 lbs in some numbers in the Boulder area, then moving out west and grabbing Chinook on the ebb late afternoon. Most of our fish were on weighted rods today, shallow mooching the cut plug herring. We battled three sea lions and lost all confrontations, only reeling in part of a corpse, quite exciting for the guests, a bit on the ikd side for me. Yes, the lions are on patrol.
I hit the dock at six thirty and took note of what was caught. Kory sprinted for the truck so I am thinking small kings, I saw Chutter with a nice tote of Jacks, a familiar snort as he packed his fish by my boat. Kui snuck a 25 lber in from Coho point, said there were Jacks or smaller Kings on the bite in numbers. Hans and his guest grabbed a 25 as well, so that is the three biggest Chinook of the day. From what I gather the boys hit fish every half hour all afternoon, with the over 20’s, being the nicer fish.
The weather continues crazy good, we will have some halibut tomorrow for sure, no swell out west at this point. We look good into next week with sun and mild temps. Boat traffic is light, making the experience all that much better. I hope to have a dynamic report tomorrow, Bud has arrived on scene and his boat will be on the tack tomorrow. Kory promises a big Chinook tomorrow for his guests, and things are shaping up for a great week in here at the Clubhouse, standby for tomorrows update!
