    So who all from the board was at browns point this morning? Didnt notice any wff hats. Seemmed like most were catching fish. I waited for a few people to leave and headed down to the beach. While I was waiting I must have seen 20 fish landed. I ended up landing two and lost 4-5.

    Anil,
    You've got the skizzle out there now? Sweet! I'm fishing in the morning. I thought you were going tuna fishing?

    Curtis, are you headed out there tomorrow? Let's hook up if you are.

    I was there, just down from the point between the launches. It was a great morning. I came back for the late am bite and caught a few more fishing with Leland.
    Watching the seal swoop in and take the fish from the guy next to me was was quite a site.

    I was up above waiting for an opening when that happened. I was there later also. I think I left around 10. This was my first salmon experience in the salt. I think I have been spoiled landing two fish my first time out. Maybe I should quit while I am ahead.

    I was there too. Lost WAY more fish than I landed. Fished along troutingham (paul) for a while. I was the one who forget his waders and just had rubber hip boots....

    NewB here... Thinking of headed down at o'dark hundred tomorrow morning to try this out. Any advice welcome! I'm an experienced river fisherman with lots of trout time and little salmon time on the fly. I'm hoping this will be a rewarding experience as it's about all that's available these days?

    Brown's point any good as well?

    Hey so I have never been to Brown's Point - going Wednesday - maybe sooner if I quit my job. I live in Gig Harbor and am thinking about buzzing over in my little duck hunting boat.

    It sounds like a total zoo. Any thoughts on weekday pressure? Are boats a good idea for fly fishermen or do you just piss off those who troll hardware?

    Any feedback would be welcome.

    If you have a boat, don't fish browns point, hit some of the other bays, points and shorelines in the area :) Weekday preasure isn't horrible if you can go in the middle of the day, mornings and evenings have been pretty busy.

    Thanks. I've been fishing this side (Olalla, Purdy, Fox Island) and it has been real inconsistant :beathead: . It seems like Brown's Point has been going off.
