    On the subject of South and Pinks, is there a place to toss in a pontoon at Dash Point or the state park? I'm riding the same train as Ed (Mumbles) and I need to get the salmon skunk off....

    I don't know about Dash. I'm using the ramp at Redondo and it's a freaking nightmare. It's an easy call that I have never seen more boats launched and less people that know how to do so in any one place in my life.
    If I were you I would stay well clear of that mess.

    I've contemplated heading south, but based on my time constraints I've got to stay closer to home. There will be some fat ocean coho that will be freight training through soon enough, they like me.

    Banzai, if there is a pontoon friendly place where we won't be sucked into the shipping lanes I might make that voyage. I'll need some planning time though (unless I don't get hired for my own job...interviewing tomorrow...I could have a lot more fishing time on my hands)

    You should be ok at Dash in a pontoon, I was out just off to the east of the state park in my float tube a couple weeks ago and I didnt have any problems. The tide change was however only about 8' when I was in my tube. I recommend taking an anchor with you, to stay in one spot once you get out into the lane where the fish are running.

    I undersatnad ro. I first tried fly fishing when I was a preteen. But I didn't know anyone that actually knew about FFing. so I let it go until I got out of the Army in '81. I got a job shortly after working next door to Jim Green's shop in Bainbridge Island. My interest started again, and, here I am today.

    Yes I did, not far to carry a toon so you should be fine to launch at the state park.

    Decided to take the canoe out to Lincoln Park today thinking I would avoid all the mess on the beach. Arrived right at the beginning to the incoming tide and fish were jumping everywhere in the churning currents. Thought I would finally get into some pinks. The thread title explains how it went. Spent five hours in the canoe paddling up current and drifting back with no luck. I did however manage to smack the wife upside the head again with a Clouser. I am so lucky she will even get in the canoe with me. Luckily she wants to catch salmon as well.

    Gee guys I just spent 3 hours standing in the water T Browns Pt. I saw a total of three fish taken, all by those chucking BB's. I don't think a pontoon would have made a difference.

    Way to get out at it today Mike. You are a patient man and that will prove beneficial. If my job interveiw for my own job did not go as well as I thought it did I might have more fishing time starting tomorrow.

    If you do catch something, DO NOT
    let the fish hang in the water next to
    you. Have you ever been attacked by
    a hungry seal? No fun...

    There were seals in the area which might explain why the catching was minimal.
