I love the cold snaps this time of year. I seem to always do well during them. Or maybe the trips are just more memorable because of the cold. I don't know.

Looking forward to going out again tomorrow. I just bought an electric motor to put along side my outboard. Hopefully, this will make it easier to be stealthy and adjust the speed that the boat drifts with the tide.
The tides look pretty darn good. Fish the morning go grab a sandwich around 11 then get back out around one, then fish to dark. I'll be in area 11 most likely fishing around creek mouths. Best of luck.

Many Polychaete worms drifting and squiggling around yesterday in MA13. The bite was off for me but seeing the worms gave me an idea what to bring next time.

Headed south this morning.
27 degrees when I started and 36 when I finished.
Nice to get out after being cooped up for two weeks with the bug that has been going around.
Tough day with not much action but a few players around. Called it a day a bit early and headed home. Ran into a few snow showers on the way back.

Saw multiple people both coming and going at one of the well known spots. That beach is becoming the Rocky Ford of the south sound cutthroat scene. Sad to see what it has become after having fished there since the 60's. There are much better beaches if people would be willing to explore a bit more.

I agree, yesterday was slower than the week before. The water temp where I was fishing was 44 degrees. The incoming was better than the outgoing. We did end up landing around 20 but had to work many different beaches and places that had submerged trees. My dad, landed one about 18". Again I did get two more spawners. So far in the last week I have landed 5 spawned out SRC and there is only a small creek in the area.
I used the new electric motor to try and be more stealthy but it was more of a challenge to control the boat. So, I think I'll send it back. Anyone else looking forward to fishing in the summer, yet?

The middle sound has been consistent--a couple of beaches actually seem to do better when it's colder. I've been seeing a 2 to 1 mix of cutthroat to resident coho for the past month or so with more frequent activity in the past three weeks. Yesterday I managed 2 mini slams (cutthroat, resident coho, blackmouth). Pink over white has been the producer. This hatchery blackmouth fell for a marabou clouser in that color scheme about 30 feet off the shore.

Red5, that's a cool looking blackmouth. Like the big spots on its tail.

That a 5 or 6 switch?

What is your definition of middle sound? :)

The places I've been fishing down south have been about a 10:1 resident coho to cutthroat ratio. I. Eat that was a lot of fun on the trout Spey. What line you using on that?

What has the size been on those coho? They're running 12 to 14 inches where I've been getting them.

I'm using an OPST Commando 275 mated to a 10 foot intermediate poly.

Commando heads are fun. Especially on small single handed rods. The coho have been about the same size down here. Fishing yesterday was slow like the same as others have posted. Even saw a snow flurry for a few minutes while I was on the beach.
