    I would love to but we are working on the Jon boat with some buddies to get the duck blind up for Moses Lake. Count me in for next time. I've been looking for some fishing buddies.

    I'm still a noob though, only been doing for a year and fishing salt for a few months. Hopefully I can pick up some good tips. So far this forum has been incredibly helpful

    Well, if anyone else wants to join us, Mitransplant and I will be out at Doc's at 10 AM and possibly moving around from there depending on how the fishing is. Shoot me a PM if you'd like to join us.

    Im gonna be by the Fox Island bridge tomorrow. I'll let you guys know how it goes. Last year the Rezzies were on fire! My dad and I LANDED 75 in about 6 hours. when the Rezzies are slow, the cutt's are usually bitin. Tide schedule looks kind of pathetic though, not sure how it's gonna work out...

    Connor, what's up with the tides? Highs too low and Lows too high? Obviously I haven't checked the tables yet....

    I was there once last year and the tide was out (low) and there was nothing but mud flats as far as I could see....didn't fish! Have heard that can be a good spot at times tho.

    Tides are just off, not a lot of movement, they drop at 8:00am and then back up at noonish, the night swings are great just not so fantastic during day light. The 24th looks to be the best day left this month[​IMG].

    When I checked the tables I immediately saw what you mean...not much flow; basically, lows are too high during daylight. :beathead: Think I'll try another time. Maybe hit the river instead.

    no fish to hand. me and Mitransplant hit up a couple spots but the tides were off today. I stopped by Purdy for a short bit on the way down but no fish there for me either.

    I gotta stop wasting my time if the tides aren't in my favor, but being out was enough for me. better than sitting at home

    Started fishing by my lonesome about 8:30 or 9:00. I was thinking the larger drop in the morning would fish best.

    As it turned out, things were dead until the tide started flooding in. Around 2:00 or so a few fish started showing themselves here and there, and I was able to connect with 2 of them.

    The bigger of the two took a glo fly I purchased from Gig Harbor Fly Shop as it was getting dark. Fish was a feeder. Saw him sip a few amphipods or euphasids off the surface and then missed him twice with a sculpin pattern before finally hooking up.

    Overall kind of a slow day.
