    Worked my way down from Friday Harbor to Seattle over the last few days and saw a ton of fish being caught as I sailed by... Admiralty inlet was absolutely jammed with boats, so I decided to give it a whirl for a minute with a jig and came up with this guy...

    About 10 minutes later, my friend came up with a pink around 5 lbs. We called it a day and headed in..

    We worked our way south towards Seattle the next day and I was able to hit a section of beach I really love for SRC's and ended up with easily the hardest fighting, biggest SRC I've ever had to hand. First off, the fish spun my 10' foot inflatable 360+ degrees, and wouldn't stop fighting, then every time I got him close he would bolt down and bend my 8wt like it was a pool noodle... Finally had to get out the salmon net, didn't want to, snapped a pic and sent him back on his way... ... Ended up 2 for 3 in about an hour... Another bonus was that someone was playing some great music that could be heard the entire time I drifted along... Awesome evening and a great couple of days... I just love the summers here...

    Looking forward to mornings on the beach!

    The cutt was one to remember, one thing of interest was the stomach of the king was full of Sand lance... have a pic, just didn't post it...
