    Nice haul Gong show! You reaped the rewards of going out on a crappy day for sure. I need to learn some secret holes for when the conditions aren't ideal.

    Theres a reef at the north end of duncan bay boom chain 38'.Between the two reefs orange point dock north.Hali at 150' trolled duncan bay.june july i have found to be good time for this fishery,won't tell you what tide to fish but the opposite tide i fish copper bluffs if i can make the crossing in my small boat.When the mill was running guys were pulling fish of the dock with perkins . On there break they would always land one with there dropnet.

    I'm sure I've fished alongside you in a white 16' hourston and 19' grady center console. Not many people fish that area and the ones who do don't fish it well. This past summer we had great success in tight to the old mill pilings rolling bait. Got a few springs over twenty in less than 50' of water lines at 20-30.

    Thanks guys, We got that one on a cut plug herring with no flasher down 175'. Sure makes for a nice fight when you are not fighting the flasher and only the fish they seem to run way more!

    Great fish for sure Daurax. I bet he was a nice surprise for a February fish.

    I just saw in last Friday's local paper that a 31 was recently caught at the Hump.

    A Tyee in Feb is pretty darn good.




    Take care.

    What's the bait of choice for winter springs? Herring or Chovies? It's my first winter living here and first time fishing these winter springs.
