    Nothing to report.

    3 days. 3 different south sound beaches. Nothing.

    Please tell me someone is nailing 'em somewhere?

    ....not me, however I have morely been playing around with my switch rod and learning to cast it. As far as success goes, I would say that Ive failed so far with casting and catching. :clown:

    nada on the SRC's, fished 4 beaches in the SS last weekend and only got into a few nicer sized resident silvers. Glad to know Im not the only one that hasnt caught much this week. But really with all of the sun it makes the fish more wary and I usually dont do well when its really sunny out.

    Yep. The sun has just been killin' me too. It's beautiful, and I'm glad to have a little color and some vitamin-d production going on, and happy for all the sights I've seen - but bring the gray grim cloudy moody sound with just a wee bit o chop to quarter off my shoulder while I pay out a bit more anchor line and chuck some casts to fish that are feelin' like things are allllright. my 2 bits

    Sun really makes things tough out there.
    My friend Greg Cloud recently gave me a little lesson on rigging up a sinking line and dropping down to those sun-shy cutts. I've fished Puget Sound sea-runs like a maniac for 14 years, and just NOW I'm learning about flinging that sinker into the sound. Sigh.
    There is always something new to learn, some new place to explore and some new flies to tie for sea-runs. It's never boring!

    Sounds like time for a new rod... Cutthroat have been tough for me as well, picked up one a last week, just a bunch of coho and a chinook for this week though. Fished a local pond for cutthroat as well and some of the fish were pretty colored up still. So there are still probably a lot of fish up in the creeks taking care of business right now.

    found a healthy pod of coho at the head of a small bay yesterday
    they were stacked right next to two creek mouths
    not happy jumpers but they showed themselves
    they were tight lipped but a few to hand
    caught one on the cone head squid from the coho / b mouth swap
    almost made it thru the whole swap box
    high tide at sunset tonight... money

    I'd be surprised if you haven't caught one off the beach aquaholic. It's real hard to tell when they're small, which is typically when they're running close to the beach, the easiest way is to see if they have any spots on the tail below the lateral line... if it does, it's a blackmouth. Can't wait to get back out this weekend!!! :D

    Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one in this boat.

    The weekend looks greaaaat with perfect tides and semi-shitty/yet perfect fishing weather to keep the sun bathers out of my back cast.

    The evening tides have looked great all week for the area I fish. I'll be out tomorrow evening.
