    Planning on fishing out of Edmonds tomorrow afternoon. 1 or 2 humpy trips a year is about all I can handle... ;) If you can chip in for gas, great. If not, great. Maybe run to Bush Pt or just fish closer.

    Thanks to Irafly and my buddy Jack for one of them outings..... They did all the hard work by hooking up first so I knew there were fish around. Then I could just plop my stuff out there and be on the back end of the double or triple. Had a few triples, lots of doubles and enough singles so nobody knew how many we actually landed. I can legitimately claim to have caught the first fish without even making a cast....

    Good times and thanks again!

    Ugh, wish I would have seen this! Sounds like a great time!

    Fix your boat so we can go chase some pinks Nick!

    Love to get back out there with you sometime. Had a great time last year. Been taking myself out on my uncle's boat mostly this year, but as the season wears on, he's using it more, so my opportunities are becoming less.

    I'm thinking about a trip to Neah Bay in the next couple weeks. Wouldn't mind a couple WFF'ers meeting me out there. After all, someone needs to pay that ferry fare.

    Weather played a big roll as did a bunch of fish coming thru. The jumpers always show themselves but the finners were out in full force. Wouldn't have spotted the numbers we did if it had been choppy.

    Man, a second Neah Bay run this year would be excellent. Not sure my bank acct. would support such an outing. I'll have to look in to it.

    Let me know if a trip to NB gets going . I just picked up a 19' Arima that, while in the shop at the moment, would love to head up there and could definitely have an open seat or two as well

    PT's first fish was just wild. He hadn't even yet pulled the actual fly line out of his guides and had just set his fly in the water to pull line out when a Pink showed up and investigated his fly right at the boat. He noticed it and dropped the fly a bit and the fish inhaled it! Awesome to watch, just awesome. After that, I landed 4 fish that I watched eat the fly, very cool stuff. We hooked most of our fish by moving around finding concentrations of fish and casting into them, but the odd blind cast fish kept me casting.

    I was a bit hoarse by the end of the trip from all my whooping and hollering. I think that some of the gear guys thought we were a bit off our rockers. Really, it was mostly just me. I also think we did far better than the gear guys based on our observations.

    Yes Nick I could see myself becoming a bit obsessed.

    Chasing and sight-fishing pinks sure beats trolling for them and flies certainly seem to be more effective than most hardware, with twitching jigs coming in at a close second. Evan and I had a blast doing just that off Whidbey last Saturday.

    PT- I work right next to the ferry terminal and am always game to fish, plus I bring good food (steak, venison, jerky, chocolate, etc) and am not shy with gas money :)

    I would think that this wouldn't be good news..... To those out there who happen to be school teachers ;)
