Yes. You were on fire. Sorry about the rod. I heard one guy go uh oh and looked down the line and saw you fighting a coho with two rods.

Ha! Now I know that was Jasmillo who was next to me the whole time, you're one fishy dude man!
I was like damn this guy is next to me and getting all the big fish what the hell :)

It’s crazy. They should hand out WFF hats with your board name emblazoned when you sign up to this site. Nothing like interacting with someone for years on this site then fishing next to them all morning and not saying a word to each other!

Yeah, it is what it is. That’s the second time in two years that rod has snapped. Lesson: don’t horse a coho that’s swiped at your fly and foul hooked itself….even if it’s only a two pounder.

Nice talking with you IHFish....I had my shot at that big humpie, what a fight.
Nice talking with you too. That was definitely the biggest fish I saw up close today. My offer to blame the attempted net job doesn't come with an expiration date ;).

I'm picturing you guys side by side catching salmon like:

This weekend surely did not suck. Nice weather and even with bluebird sky’s, lots of fish willing to play. Like last year, off to a very solid start with lots of fish around. August and September 2020 were tough though so crossing my fingers this continues. It did slow a bit today.

A fish sample from the weekend.

Non fish indicators of success. Sore, beat up hands. Don’t be like me, remember your tape boys and girls…

Funny on that last picture. I wore the same sweatshirt fishing three days in a row. I always stick my rod under my left arm to two hand strip.
When I got home, I happened to notice the big ring of underarm salt crust.
The people in Fred Meyers who saw me after this mornings beach session must have been thinking......
“That dude really needs some deodorant. He looks like a human salt block. Thankfully there aren’t any deer in here”.

It's been easy pickings for feeding 2-5 lb resident coho and early pinks the past few days. Strange that so many resident coho are unclipped this year, I've only bonked one hatchery coho and released over a dozen unclipped "wild". Let's hope August brings a nice wave of big ocean coho into the mix.

Are unclipped fish naturalized hatchery or just hatchery fish that never got clipped? As I understand the entire resident Coho fishery exists for sport fishing, in which case it doesn't really make sense to not clip them

Some hatchery coho are adipose clipped, and others are not. It depends on the hatchery of origin. The majority of Puget Sound resident coho are hatchery raised.
