I fished the major out going tide Saturday 5/14/05 and picked up this year's first sea run cutt for me from the Snohomish Co beaches. Still pretty skinny from spawning; fought well, just not enough weight yet to really kick butt. A number of smaller immature cutts were cooperative too, as well as some small 6" - 8" coho smolt. I used a floating line, and went through the usual suspects of bait immitation without a hit until I used a 1" lime green over white, slender pofile, sand lance which did the trick. A few larger fish showed themselves in the rip tide out about 150 ft. As the weather looked crappy and was quite windy, I pretty much had the entire beach to myself. the wind died to zero the water got glass flat, and the fishes came out to play. Good to welcome the 2005 season in.
