perch fishing used to be sweet in dumbass bay
Did my own recon at DP tonight and can basically add my voice to the chorus of "not yet's." I was on the water in my pram for about four hours and didn't see a single sign of pinks in the area, so you can rest easy if you are worried about missing out on the front end of the run in the next couple of days IMO.
Did catch a nice little resident coho while I was out there, which was a nice surprise....
Got a couple last weekend, here's a few from the weekend before. . .

Hit Brown's Point at lunch. A few gear guys already out. Didn't see anything... and talked to a couple of kayakers who had just come down from Dash Point. They saw one small fish jump but other than that nothing. Nice day, though. Can't complain about that.
What time are they opening up the launch and parking lot at Redondo?
Thinking about going out and rowing for Kings.
All quiet at Kayak Point this evening right before high tide.
Well, things werent going so well on the beach for me... So I went out and bought a 190 montauk tonight, It must be the boat that catches fish right? : )
Dang Jesse! Now that is one grand solution to your problem. Congrats!
Oh yeah buddy! Now you'll be a rocking!
Hit Southworth for a while this morning. Saw a few fish jump but they were quite a ways out. LOTS of salad in the water.
Spent the day at Kayak Pt.. no pinks, sea run's... lots of people, tons of people as the day progressed!! Was there about 8am and stayed until 4pm or so.. Big exchange on the tides. Lot's of crabbers and it will continue through the weekend, I won't go up until next week at the earliest. Will hit some other beaches that are closer to me or chase steel...
Thanks Greggor. I suppose I should be more specific..... And Honest. My old man bought a 190 montauk. An even better solution. He has wanted a saltwater boat forever, I just helped him pick the "right" one.
I saw pinks jumping yesterday afternoon and I was nowhere near saltwater. The vanguard is here and not worth fishing yet but we'll be seeing more and more and more and more and more and more..... soon.
Dave - it was open for me at 5:45, but they were also doing some work down there, so I'm not positive, you might give the marina in Des Moines a call. I think they manage the launch.
That's a killer boat, I've owned a 170 montauk now for 7 years. You wont regret it! If I had 2 more feet in my garage I'd sell mine and get a 190.
Thanks IBN, not to be a creeper, but your boat, pics and videos is what made me choose the whaler..... Yeah I have been watching you
We looked at a brand new 170, and was sold on it, but a used 190 popped up locally and I got a screamin deal on her. We may have to have a whaler rally some day.
Well, my buddy got two off a Tacoma beach last evening. They may well have been the first ones, so he was once again "that guy". A few years ago he went to a quarter ounce jig with a pink worm, instead of the buzz bomb, so he could slow the retrieve with his spinning rod. He did that in imitation of fly fishermen who were out fishing him.
The Whaler is the way to go. Bought my 170 three years ago and love it. It's older but still in great condition and very seaworthy. I plan on using it quite a bit more this month.
The Whaler is the way to go...... if you don't own a Grady! Just sayin'.
Very nice boats as well.
