    Pretty quiet in here...what gives. It's either really good and everyone's fishing or sadly very slow.

    Tight lines!

    Its a struggle out there...not the typical may fishing we usually see.

    Was out yesterday afternoon until the black clouds chased me. At 105' a big one took three long runs, that spooled the reel to two or three winds, in a moment of exhaustion I rested for a second thinking I had enough tension on the line. Tick gone. Wow what a rush! There are Big ones out there.

    Good crossing to Silva Bay yesterday even had time to go back out for a couple of hours around thrasher and mooched one Ling. Hi winds kept us in close to the islands today and got another. US coast guard was busy with distress calls. Tomorrow the weather looks promising, might even get some trolling in.

    Great day on the water this morning. Got my first tyee ever - 33 pounds! Also got a couple more springs around ten pounds. All the action came on irish creme and homeland security spoons. Quite a few boats out but the wind started to pick up in the afternoon. Hopefully today was a sign that fishing is starting to pick up.

    MAJOR! Congratulations on the Tyee TipUp and thanks for posting the report. I'm heading out of silva bay in the morning and will give those spoons a try. How deep was it?

    Today we headed out at 10. Had our Lings by 12 then tried trolling the rodeo and gave up. Calmer forecast for am.
