What no one gotten any Pinks yet in the Sound?
I show that by this time 2 years ago I was already into them and with getting back from AK Sunday night I was hoping to take Amie fishing for them this weekend since she still a little ticked on not getting to head to AK to fish with me.
I will post the AK report later when I can add the photos to it.
With pinks where there's one there's bound to be more but they won't be seen in any real numbers for about 3 or 4 more weeks. If the predictions are even close to true August should be a bounty year and we'll be up to our eyeballs in pinks soon enough.
Amie and I searched a large part of area 11 both Saturday and Sunday mostly just trolling flies behind our boat and looking for either Coho or Pinks. Met only one person who had even caught a Salmon and that was from Pt Robinson fishing down rigger and saw few bait fish of any type. Only other salmon we saw caught was the 12" Chinook Amie caught while trolling our flies, though we both had one other fish of about the same size on for a moment each. All in all it seemed to be pretty slow around area 11 and we will most likely wait 2 weeks before we go looking again. Instead we may do a little camping and fishing down South next weekend.
We did talk to a couple guys doing some type of a survey on bottom fishers and saw one person tossing a fly off of 3-tree point and another fly fisherman using a kayak close to around one of my favorite fishing holes at certain times of year. First other person I have ever seen close to that beach fishing. We also saw a lot of crab pots still out on Sunday which we should not have seen since crabbing was closed on Sunday.
Still it was a nice day to be on the water and it helped to beat the heat a little.
Last night I was fishing around 9:00 for SRCs off the south end of Bainbridge Island. About 20 feet in front of me I watched a 7-8 pound salmon roll on the surface. I threw good cast right by it and got nothing.:beathead: :beathead:
I talked with a buddy this morning, he told me that his friend was crabbing out of Maple Grove C.Is. this weekend. He had his line in the water with a buzz bomb on it, just sitting there by it's self. As they were pulling up the pots a 6lb silver slamed into it. I think it's going to be a great year for Salmon!!
