    I used to work with a guy who would occasionally do this. Can't say I condone his actions, but it was effective.

    Yes.

    If you've got a power boat, it might be worth heading up the West channel fishing a ways South of the Spokane Street bridge and spotting schools well away from the madness.

    How are the south sound beaches and points fishing?
    Two weeks ago reports were pretty discouraging.
    A week ago it seems like things may have picked up.

    looked a little crazy right now. Everyone's crowding the bridge so it's pretty thick in there.

    Weekend should be a great opportunity for disaster.

    Paul, that's a great video! I'm going to try going next Monday morning, that is if I get a hall pass. I'll be in a different river though. I'm sure this warm weather won't help the biting factor.

    I do have a power boat but have never been over there so thanks for the tip! Any better options over the weekkend? Not sure how much I'll be fishing but wanted to introduce my parents to the madness and show them some fish.

    Great vid, Paul. Looks like you and Nope tore 'em up (plus, he said as much on FB...). Headed to Pullman tomorrow, but want to get out Sunday night and Monday. Get those suckers put in a pen for me, won't you please?

    And a howdy to Sam who I met tonight on the river. Good fishing with you!

    Just in from the River with the kidlet and Upton O. We tore it up on the fly rods, and found a couple of agressive acrobatic hens in the mix. The only downer was that my daughter lost her only fish to a shit knot I tied. (How 'radish of me.)

    Still, a great time was had by all, and I recon by Tuesday I'll smell like I swam in fish sauce.

    I was wondering if you could fill me in with some info. Where do you launch your pontoon boat to fish in the Duwi?

    Thanks for the info.

    The fly guys (and WFF) were well represented out there today. I'm now buried in video footage to edit. Thanks to the board members who let me be annoying with my camera.

    another nice shot of Toolfly

    Floated the sky today with very little to show for it. Saying they are tight lipped would be a serious understatement. 4 were hooked, 2 landed. But this was with thousands upon thousands of fish seeing our hooks.

    Fished from 530am to 3pm, hit south vashon,dash pt,browns pt,mouth of puyallup,claybanks for kings,GH for kings and ZILCH,ZERO,NUTIN' to hand except stupid dogfish and flounders. A zillion boats but nice weather. Also witness nothing to hand on other boats too.

    Was about to go throw metal in the puyallup but was tired and didn't want to deal with the crowds,heat and cars. Fried my fishfinder and all th wires melted, don't know where the short was, but fried my fingers trying to fix it, OUCH!

    Well, now I'm looking foward to targeting silvers and kings ONLY, and src. Pinks are history! :p

    Got my boat out for the first time this weekend. Stayed close to home but put a good 50 miles on it Saturday and Sunday so got brave and made the run from Bremerton to Seattle yesterday. Great weather and fun boating but no fish. I had my flyrod and some gear and nothing. Found some fish but no bites. I've never fished for salmon with gear before and never caught an adult salmon in the salt so maybe I was just presenting wrong, but I didn't see many other hookups either. In fact, the whole time I was over there (west waterway and up above Spokane St bridge) I saw one fish to hand and one other hookup. Pretty bummed after the long trip but I learned alot boating over there. Also made the entire day (around 40 miles) on one 6 gallon tank with some to spare. Pretty good I thought!

    Couldn't find any Pinks on the beach on Maury Island (Vashon) on Sun-Mon but we found a few Sea Run Cutts willing to bite.
