    Sorry to hear about your tubby. Interesting trip. We caught and released a 10 or so lb. coho on the fourth of September at deep water. Tried to turn him into a chum but no success. Lol

    Fished deepwater today, pretty slow for us.One undersized spring 7 pounds?? Saw one other fish released. Should have hit greensea . Thought there would be some chums around but never saw a fish jump or a net out

    Fished the green to red can today. There was about 20 boats out on a beauty day on the water. Saw a few nets out some did ok I think. No keepers for me. Kept changing depths and lures to keep away from all the shakers. Tons of bait showing. Kreel girl said not much came in lately. Think I might do Browns bay next weekend.

    Fished the Green Can and Francisco today. Very slow, a few shakers. Had one good one on and lost it. Didn't see much bait.
