I fished from about 11 AM to 2 PM today (Sunday) somewhere north of Silverdale. It had been a while since I had chased some favorite cutthroats. I tresspassed up the beach (I assume) in front of some nice fancy homes. Fishing a short time on the way with a couple of light hits with the Squimp. Moving up the beach I found some nice moving incoming tide in front of the beautiful brick home. I made a few casts and the owner, whom I had seen working outside came on over and said hello and asked whether I caught any. I told him I had just started not long ago. I asked if it was ok if I fished his beach. He asked where I was from. When I replied he said "Sure" with a little hesitation in his voice. He asked my name also. So I asked his too. I thanked him for letting me fish on his beach. Shortly after he went back to his chores I hooked up with several nice cutthroat in the 12-13" range, then landed a beautiful 16"+. I had just switched to my Popcicle Stick just before hooking into the larger fish. I moved up the beach to kind of a cove area where the tide slows a bit but pushes really nice around the point I was fishing at. I proceeded to slam fish landing about a dozen 12-14". I hooked up with 3 good fish that each came unbuttoned and I know were all over 16 inches, but that's the way the cookie crumbles. It was a "good" day. All the fish were strong as heck. I normally use a dry line, but was using an intermediate today in the stronger moving tide. I intend to send the guy a letter in the mail thanking him for letting me fish his beach, hoping I can use it again.
