    The past few weekend tons of boats going out of Pacific Playgrounds which is just south of CR. Fishing has been more on that off at Sentry Shoals. NE and SE side of the Shoals have been best. Spoons in glow Cop Car and Herring Aid seemed to work the best but some fellas are running cut plug as well with good luck. A few really nice early season fish coming in as well. 22lbs is the biggest so far that I saw but good average size fish. It was killing be because my boat isn’t quite finished yet so I didn’t even get a sniff...

    If the stars align I’ll be test launching at Pacific Playgrounds on May 10th to make sure all systems are a go and then heading up to Esperanza on the 11th to give it a real test. I’m already losing sleep haha.

    Pretty quiet thread, here.
    I fished the green can at Wilby this morning and picked up 2 nice salmon on spoons.
    Try 180 on the downriggers.

    Back to the green can on this beautiful morning. 4 fish in 2 hours: 2 keepers.
    Fished 140 to 180 with best results at 180 on the rigger with herring aid spoon.
