    I was out at Epsom last night for a couple of hrs. Landed a nice 12 to 14 range on a homeland security spoon. Put down the Turd on the other side and hammered a good size fish right away, went straight to the bottom and sounded for about 5 mins and then took a huge run. Got him to the surface and was fighting with him up top and he threw the hook. Got the blood flowing.

    Fished Epsom on Sunday with Eriks from the forum. We got into some nice fish, but the real highlight was watching a pod of orcas take out a seal. Watch carefully and you'll see the seal in the middle of all the orcas attacking it:

    Spent Friday night and Saturday morning tweaking on the boat trailer and installed some fresh bearings with a buddy. Got out in the afternoon to Lesquiti to reward our hard work before the chop came up and tied into 3 keepers including one nice 18lber. Unreal battle with no flasher, did an awesome tailwalk and made my Trophy Tyee scream!

    PS - No more algae! woohoo

    At Epsom last night, it was a dead zone patrol for me. Saw a hali landed though.

    New power working well? I thought it may have been you at the pilings on Sunday ?

    It has been working great, huge fuel savings and performance boost. We were at the pilings for a couple of passes.

    Out last night from 630 to dark picked up a 15lber and that was it. Much slower than on Saturday for me.

    Nice 15 lb red at Epsom tonight on a chovie. Fishing in shallower water, 110 ft, 99 down on rigger. Released two legals as well. Current was tough to fish, it was ripping. Tons of slime as well, that can go any time now.

    Picked another one up last night. Exactly the same as my post above. Add lots of wood around, be careful.

    Thanks for the reports.
    We will be in in the area next week (Wednesday-Friday), first time fishing this location.
    Hopefully we will have something to add to the fishing reports.
    I've been following this thread trying to figure out where to fish.
