    I didn't get skunked, but I'm not bragging about another 10" rezzie shaker.

    Mike, glad you got out with the Kitsap Gang. Lakes are too hot. Keep giving the beach a go. Follow the great advice you've gotten in how to fish the tides and you'll be beaching lots of fish soon. It is still a tad early, reports say the big silvers are inbound. Rob, when do you go back to work? Available Friday? I'm pondering getting out.

    It was nice meeting a few folks even if work required that I show up late and leave early. Only saw one silver jump. Heck of a lot of salad in the water, too. Thanks to Mr. Smartie for organizing the get-together.

    The only fish I saw brought to hand was Greg's out at the tip of the point. Glad his ferry ride resulted in touching some scales.

    I did, unintentionally, floss a crab to hand. One more species checked off the list.

    And then I caught a wicked sunburn.

    Great day.

    I am sad that I missed this - Even if it was just casting practice - Work tied me down today.

    For what it's worth - I am headed from Seattle to PA Saturday morning. I will be fishing PNP that morning for sure. I would be glad to meet up with anybody else who is interested in trying to catch an early run coho. I'm an early bird so I will be there by 5:30, fishing until about 9:00. I'll be the guy with the LL BEAN stripping basket with recently epoxied, formerly self drilled, drain holes. If you see me please swing by and say hi.

    Good fishing to all.

    I too ended up having to miss this event. It sounds like a good time was had by all. A crab flossed is a new one, I'm guessing it wasn't on a popper.

    Nofishlarry here! Sorry I may not have gotten to meet everyone. I was the fool out in the pontoon boat. Thought I would give it a try once, but think I'll stick to the beach wading. Much more of a pleasure for me. Of course I might have changed my mind if I would have hooked up. Too bad there didn't seem to be any fish around. I pounded the beach with no success after the tide turned. It was nice to meet a few guys and good to see you again Jason. Let's fish.

    Man, I'm bummed I had to miss this, but my fiance and I decided to call it quits over the weekend, and there was just too much going on for me to get out. Trying to find a place to live short notice is a pain! Sounds like everyone had a good time. Hopefully we can do something like this again.

    Anyone happen to find a rectangular net at the beach or boat launch that day? I lost mine there I believe. It's like a large trout net that I had hooked to my pontoon boat. Big enough to hold a 4-5 lb fish. Thanks!
