    Those 2 on the right sure look like Chinooks to me

    Not the best picture to be sure, but they were pinks.

    Is one of the ones on the right clipped? Likely not a pink if it is clipped.

    Anyone had any luck with crab lately? Every pot I’ve dropped in the usual spots are coming up blank with bait untouched. Sounds like there may be a hatch on so they may have gone to deep water, anyone else having better luck?

    well, not quite.

    On rare occasions when we can keep unclipped fish, i've had the magic wand find a chip in the head of a fish with a clear adipose fin.

    They don't get them all. :mad:

    Out tonight from 6 to 9. Fishing was slow overall for us but managed 1 undersized on a no-bananas skinny g at 160 feet. Glass calm out there. Heard of a few coho being hooked.

    Decided to try for some coho yesterday morning 5am-12:30 (first early morning fish of the year for me, I just havnt been motivated for some reason...) we ripped out to entrance island and immediately found the bait! We were into chinooks thick for the first couple hours and easily brought 20 to the boat, lots between 8-15lbs and missed/lost lots as well. Unfortunately we only found one coho that was wild. Decided to jig for a bit but there was nothing out there. When we got back to the ramp seen this boat being held up by the motors... hopefully it’s not any of yours! On a side note I think I know why there’s no bottom fish. The ramp must have had 20+ ling heads and as many rockfish carcasses dumped on the ramp in just the area we could see...

    Every hook we put in the water caught fish. Fishing water depth of 100-250’. Running the riggers at 60-120’ as soon as you would get on the bait it was fish on.

    Must have been one hell of a good lunch special to miss the tide change

    Wow can’t say I’ve seen someone beach their boat that badly there before lol. Probably an out of town er that went and had too many brews at the pub, forgot there are tides in the ocean

    Serves him right for leaving the boat unattended on the ramp!

    I have had the same result. Not sure what is going on. Anybody else know? I don’t remember getting blanked so often. I am not even getting undersized Dungeness. Rock crabs - yes. Dingeness- no!
