Nice fish Leland! I've been meaning to get or tie up some pink poppers, but never got around to it. I think I'm probably a little late to that party for this Coho season.

Oh well.

What's cool was that a guy 50 feet away fishing bait hooked up and I made a long cast in his direction and caught the trailing fish immediately.

You are definitely not "too late" to get in on the autumn coho fishing around here. Late fall is a favorite season for the locals who know.

I heard something from a fisheries biologist in MA12 that hinted at this very thing.

BTW, this day with Leland was at Marrowstone Point, on an outgoing tide, shallow water, under a bright sun. I love watching Leland fish those Poppers, and he casts beautifully.

3 of 5 fish I've gotten this year have been on an outgoing tide, under bright sun, in about 5-8 foot deep water (i'd guess). It has really surprised me. Oddly enough, the reason I started fishing a particular spot at my local beach was because I saw Leland fishing the popper there one day. I went up to him and talked to him briefly and he said he had just rolled a fish. He told me that beach was really good on the outgoing tide. About a week later I got my first fish in the exact spot where we'd been talking!

I'm heading to Kona over the holidays (Dec 19-Jan 2nd) and would love a recommendation for a good fly guide. Jordan/PSP, do you have any you can hook me up with?

DIY fishing is fun but going out with a guide who knows the water and has a boat, can be the difference between catch fish and CATCHING

FISH. Damn, Coach Duff just sent me another photo of a happy flyfisher!
