After a frustrating past Saturday, I decided to go back today for some fast and furious Coho Salmon fishing on the beach. Since the Edmonds Ferry doesnt depart til 5:45 am, we decided to leave at 4:00 from Seattle and drive the south route through Tacoma, and Poulsbo. The drive was nice, and took us 1:45 to make it to the beach. We were surprise to find the parking lot full of cars and many fisherman on the beach already started. I fished my crazy clouser pattern, which is a cross between a crazy charlie and a clouser, tied on a Mustad salt water #2 hook, 1/30 oz. barbell eye and a littel crystal flash. I fished my striper line with clear intermediate sink tip on my new 9'6" XP 9 wt. Yes, it was a little to much for this kind of fishing but I wanted to test out the new rod as I'd never had the chance to cast it until this morning. The rod performed excellent and it was nicer than I expected, much nicer than my 9' RPL 10 wt. I had my first Coho on and landed within the first 5 minutes of casting and I thought it was going to be a great day, and turns out it was. I ended up hooking 7 Coho, landed 5, hooked and landed around 20+ bullhead sculpins, a dozen or so flounder. On buddy ended up with a nice 7 lb hen, another buddy hooked three and lost three within the first hour, Another friend caught alot of bullhead and flounder but didn't have any success with the buz bombs for Coho. Gilly ended up with his first Coho around 5 pm, a nice fish of about 5.5 lbs. All in all a perfect day for fishing, relaxing and getting some sun. I got a racoon eye sunburn from missing the sun block before we went out this a.m. We took the 6:30 ferry back, which was a nice sail back to the mainland. Hope to see you folks out there soon.
