    Sweet! Killer grammar in my thread title. I'm not after Salmon yet, but at my regular haunts the SRC's caught seem to be getting larger, I get a few resident coho in the mix from time to time but the catching has been less but larger on average for me. I kind of like it that way. I little more bend in the rod is nice. I've been lazy about getting up early but notice that the earlier I get out of bed the better the action, once the sun comes out there's action, just not as frequent.

    Dang, not much salmon action going on yet in the sound. I'm going to go out tomorrow and try a few spots. Mostly trying for SRC's but my buddy really wants to try to get a salmon. Figure, what the heck. Worth a couple hours effort.

    Big negative here Alexander, I have been on the skunk wagon ever since Ling season ended. I am heading out tomorrow and hopefully can wrangle some action other than 3 inch Sculpin and Dogfish. Gonna switch up my beaches so I hope that works.

    I've fished at least twice a week since July 1st. Nothing but bullheads for me, my cat is not happy with me either.

    As hot as it's been down here, the only fish one could hope to catch would be poached & you only need a net for that, but fall is coming.

    Caught my first coho of the season today (3 outings so far). Had one tug early, then nada. At dead slack I was half-heartedly stripping back when I had a solid take and hook up. Mid sized coho came home for the BBQ. Saw one other board member take a fish about 20 minutes later. No other catching seen at a popular and recently contentious west sound beach.

    Like Rob, I got my first coho of the season last weekend on my 3rd trip out. Smallish fish and 1 of 2 that I saw caught. Caught a couple shakers in the 12" range and missed one average size rezzie that rolled before spitting the hook (missed the hook set with too much bow in the line from the current).

    Cower in fear of my most recent catch, a beast of an Atlantic Salmon.

    Or not...Anyone know what this asshooked ugly thing is?

    Nope, but I've got some fly patterns in mind.. ;)

    btw, looks like some kind of needle fish.

    Lost a nice MA 10 coho last night right before I was about to leave at 9:30. Soft take on the clouser, fish played possum coming in until it saw gravel and then freaked out and headed for open water. The drag on my Litespeed was cranked and it was still taking line until I finally lost it out in the current.

    I think it MAY be a type of Pipefish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pipefish). I've seen one from my kayak before. Nearly twice the size of that one and floating/swimming along vertically in the water.

    That's kind of what I was thinking...maybe I asshooked it as it was vertical and floating along with the salad.

    Love the Pipefish! I had one poking around my waders last week!
    Regarding the catching, I hit an old fave during the morning flood and managed several hits and a fine 3" Sculpin to hand. The skunk continues despite my efforts. :(

    I don't know about you, but when I come up with nothing and a sculpin hits my fly, I feel pretty good... ;) :D
