Hey guys, It's been a while since I have posted a fishing report.... (Roger titled this thread obviously) work has owned me for the last 6 weeks, and I haven't fished at all, much less even looked at the vice. Roger has been torturing me with ridiculous PM's about dozens of fat resident coho jumping into his boat and how you don't even need a fly and how good they taste and how we need to get together and fish... all really helpful information as I head off to work instead of Puget Sound once again. This morning our schedules worked out and we met up to try and find some residents. We launched Roger's boat about 9 am, and 10 mintues later we were both fighting brilliant, fat 15" resident coho. We cruised up and down several beaches in Rogers favorite part of resident coho fishing, The Hunt. Resident coho love to chase flies, but they're tough to keep track of. One minute you're getting strikes on every cast, and suddenly you realize you haven't had a hit in a couple minutes. As you scan the water, you notice a fish jump a hundred yards away, and then another, and another. This is when Roger starts yelling orders, "There they are!!!!" "Lines in, lets go, they're heading south!" "Is the anchor up yet?" Within seconds we're motoring after the ever elusive school of maurading coho. Captain Ahab and his White Whale...sorry Roger One of the best parts of fishing for these Puget Sound winter gems is their pack mentality. You can see 2-5 fish chasing your fly until one hits it, turns, and flashes. Then others keep chasing their hooked brother, sure that he is onto some amazing bait. Anyone who has fished for residents knows how frustrating it can be from the beach. Running up the shoreline after a couple jumpers can get old quick, since once you get to them, you notice that they have moved to exactly where you just were. Having a boat is pretty helpful, although not always necessary, to chase schools down and check out multiple beaches quickly and thoroughly. Fly of the day was without a doubt your standard chartruese over white clouser, shocking I know. We did manage a couple fish on topwater sliders, and had some fantastic acrobatic misses as well. The weather was perfect with warm temps, good cloud cover, and only enough breeze to break up the surface. We fished the 2 hours before and after a low. We did keep a limit for dinner tonight, and they were outstanding.
