I have fished the pinks from the light house before but haven't targeted them in the boat yet.. Anyone have luck this early? I was hoping to just get on the water and let my wife and kids pitch jigs or buzz bombs. When does the salt start to show fish?
If my memory serves, the earliest I've caught a pink off dash pt is June 30. The earliest I can recall consistent numbers of pinks is mid July. Then normally it'll take off by beginning to mid August.
Might try 2 1/2 or 3in buzzbombs in perch, army truck, pearl white, or chrome and see if you can find a few kings willing to play. The Puyallup fish should be starting to show and they run by dash/browns pt too. They frequently come up in the shallower water chasing firecracker herring.
