So I fished a couple of my local south sound beaches yesterday with Zach M. At the first beach I fished the evening after work from the last hour of the outgoing through the first hour of the incoming. There were definitely cutthroat around and I hooked into about 4 of them and lost one about 12" fish at the net. Other than that it was the usual 'scrap' fish with a crap load of perch and sculpin and a small flounder. Once the tide died we decided to go fish another beach. Once there we just ran into a couple schools of next year's resident coho look about 8-10" right now, hopefully they will hang around the sound this year. Just about dusk we saw a large SRC jump about 18 -19" range which gave Zach's fly a good tug but than vanished. Almost immediately after this about 50 feet off shore we hear a huge splash and look out to see a big whale surfacing. It had to have been either a gray (most likely) or a humpback as it was good sized baleen whale. What it was doing so fair into the sound I have no idea but lucky for it, it was heading back out. This was definitely not an every day occurrence and was a welcomed sight on a beautiful but slow day of fishing.
