    Fish-Hunter, I've heard others hitting some sockeye out near Pill also. We were targeting springs around 80-100', but had one line up high with a sockeye set-up and had a couple on, but lost both...maybe we were lucky...

    Just back from a really good trip......

    Rolled into Meares on Thrsday evening at around 3pm. Trolled around for the first couple hours without a sniff, we were the only boat there. From 630-9pm was non stop action and we went 5/6 on springs to 38 pounds. Most fish at 80-90 feet on the rigger all on Anchovy. Released a couple in the low twenties

    Came back the next morning at first light and managed to 7/8 on springs between 5-9am, fishing was incredible with several tyees. The back rod in the morning at 60 feet was the most productive, all on anchovy.

    Headed out to 5 mile and dropped the anchor for halibut, non-stop dog fish action so we switched to the large circle hooks and got our limmit of hali in about an hour.

    Back to Meares the next morning and again it was non stop action 5/8 on springs with again the back rod being the most productive in the morning at 60. A couple of double headers. Tried dropping the anchor off of Jenet reef for some halibut but no action. Went back into Meares for the afternoon and managed twin 30 pounders.

    Hit in inlet on the way home Sunday to fill up on the sockeye and it didn't take long at all off nahmint.

    Great Trip!!!

    nog that day was awesome, was going to go to south bank and got blown sw just going across imperial eagle,, decided to stay at meares/austin and side of cree, great place to fishn hide!!


    all on lemon lime hootchie at 60 ft. multi fish morning trolled at 3.5 mph with long leaders ..fish sure where brighter than the august versions.

    hopefully the water stays cold all season would be nice to have inshore fishing like that. read 50.6 avg all over the sound.

    TT that is one heck of a trip! We were out there for the weekend and had a blast. On Friday morning we had Edward King all to ourselves and had four springs between 15-17 in four hours. All around 70 feet. Two on anchovy and two on a 4 inch party girl spoon. Saturday we moved over to Meares and got another few between 15-25. Anchovy was best at Effingham. Most of our fish all weekend came from 70-80 feet.

    To top it off we had perfect weather. Can't wait to head back.
