    had to make an early morning run to sea-tac this morning so i thought i would check out a couple places both north and south. i only saw a few boils in the distance and no fish hooked or landed by the few fishermen i saw before driving home.

    but the sunrise sure was nice.

    After 3 days of skunk in MA 9, 10, and 11, this morning I caught 2, had a bigger one break off, and had a few other pecks that I missed. MA 10 this morning.

    I haven't seen that many yet of course, but all the ones I have seen caught are quite big, these 2 were both chunky, and the one I lost was definitely bigger. Here's to hoping that pattern holds and we have lots of 6-10 lb humpies this year.

    Yup that was us. Were you in the other whaler? If so, sorry about our lack of talkativeness. Steve and I both lack hearing capabilities.

    We wound up coming back because there was nothing going down at Dumas Bay. You guys were gone when we got back but that's when Evan hooked into his fish. It was pretty good sized and I imagine would have gone 7-8 pounds.

    The front end of this run seems to be a bit larger in size so far this year

    Evan, was unsure of the truth to your tale until Mr. Seville chimed in. My hat is off to you man, you got that single hander figured out?

    Troutrageous, nice pair!
