July Fishing Report 2018

By Reel Obsession, 🕔Fri, Jul 27th, 2018


The past few weeks has been a great time to be fishing Esperanza. Chinook fishing has been very consistent. Offshore is producing fish on a daily basis. Yesterday we had 15 Chinook to the side of the boat before noon! Most fish are in the 15-25 pound range with a few larger ones in the mix. The best depths have been from 150-180 feet. We were getting fish as shallow as 50 feet though. The Yamashita large white terd and brown terd along with the 5 inch Bon Chovy G force spoon have been our top lures. The 602 glow and bloody nose Rys Davis teaser heads have the best offshore colors if using bait. Green and Purple Moon Jelly/glow and mirror combination OKI big Shooter flashers have been working great. On the beach, the no bananas and herring aid skinny G's along with bait have been producing the most fish. 22-30 feet are the best depths to be trying in the morning, and some days by the afternoon the fish will be down as low as 50 feet. Pin Rock and Rosa have been the best spots the last few days. Halibut fishing remains good in all the regular places. The whale tail has been exceptional for smaller fish.Salmon bellies are the best bait at the moment if anchoring. We have been trolling up a lot of our fish lately. The brown and white terds are great to drag on the bottom for halibut and ling cod.

We are sold out for 2018 and are already over 50% sold out for 2019, so give me a call anytime to discuss your next great fishing adventure.
