That's right, I caught 8 SRCs in 5 minutes today, largest pushing 19". Only catch was, no rod was involved as this was on a day out with the Bainbridge Island near shore beach-seining survey. One haul of the 100ft seine right next to the Manchester fuel dock brought in 8 fat SRCs. from 156-383cm. No sea lice on any of them. Other sights garnered a large number of surf smelts, some nice starry flounder, tube snouts, bay pipefish, several sculpin species (staghorn, padded, and sharp nose), a midshipman, a large pile perch, multiple shiner perch, and a few other random fish. Also saw the early arriving wintering birds including a few loons, some long-tailed ducks (aka oldsquaw), Harlequins ducks, lots of scoters (surf, white-winged, and black), western grebes, common muirs, pigeon guillemots, and lots of cormorants. There were lots of gill-netters out in Puget sound, including one in Agate pass. All in all, a nice day on the water.
