    I managed numbers like that the weekend before last, right after that good Friday rain. Went from hot to not after two days of that. That was at an MA11 beach.

    Been out 5 times over 16 days and managed a total of 4 in MA11. Based on creel reports and calculated results per angler out of the PD ramp, that's pretty good results.

    My son, "the gear chucker", just called to offer me the 4 he caught today on the Puyallup for my smoker! I have VERY mixed feelings, but I'll take them!

    Now I get to put the smoker through the ringer (for me). 7 fish! I'm planning on having a "smokeout" on my sister's deck above Point Defiance overlooking much of MA11. It's absolute hell being forced to stay at her place dog sitting with a spot in her garage for my boat :);). Get the fish in and smoking, drink beer, and enjoy the day. I'll just have to work around my planned "every other day" fishing trips :rolleyes:.

    Still going strong at the Skagit August 22nd.
    Caught one within 10 minutes on a Jig. Caught another couple hours later. Seeing about 1 fish every 30 minutes from shore between 10 people and every 15 minutes or so by 1 person on a boat.
    Here is a picture of a small one I caught today.

    I was invited to go bait fishing on the Skagit yesterday with a couple of friends. When I left after about 4 hours, we had caught 5 pinks. Everybody on the bar was having some luck just not a lot.

    I wouldn't call that going strong when it comes to humpy fishing. That's slow.

    Can't tell from the pic where you were fishing. You mind sharing exactly where that fish was caught? I don't get up that way often but sure would like to know where you found decent access.

    Thanks!

    South end of the I-5 collapsed bridge in Mount Vernon. It's on the Rocks though.

    Here is a picture I took yesterday while catching my fish. These are the types of rocks you will be standing on.
